Played it yesterday.Greens had been cored so hard to rate.The back 9 is spectacular & as good as any other 9 in Victoria.The front 9 a little plain but still fun.

Played here for the first time 3 weeks ago after playing The National (Moonah), The Dunes and St Andrews Beach on successive days. This is a bit more resort style than the others with sharply defined bunkers but is still a fantastic golf course and very enjoyable with some stunning views. Great conditioning like all the other courses and plenty of spectacular holes. The National was my pick of the 4 courses as that was truly special but the other 3 are hard to pick between with all of them still being fantastic experiences. I'd rush back to play any of them.

Brilliant value for money for RACV members, excellent value otherwise. One of the most underrated courses on the Peninsula, this is a real challenge. The fairways are immaculate, the greens true and well coded to identify the placement of the flag (front, centre, back) which is crucial on some of the large greens. The practice green warns you that they are quick and you need to read them well to escape with a good score. With few holes running side by side, you are heavily punished for stray shots on most, make sure you play a provisional as the balls can be very hard to find once you enter the trees. The only positive being that we normally found about 6 for every ball of ours we lost - but that doesn't help on the scorecard. The views are amazing, and we had to remind ourselves to stop and take it all in a few times. Around hole 15 the views of the water are so good, just as the course starts to get so hard to finish off your round. Don't be fooled by the fact that it's half the price of some other courses nearby, it's as good as any other down there.

Been a couple years since my last review. Played here today and the course is in absolutely fantastic condition. Fairways + greens are just perfect at the moment. Good to see the Marshall going around to ensure players are moving along. Terric value for us RACV golf members and/or guests.

Absolutely loved playing this course for the first time in the recent RACV Golf event. Fairways and greens were in immaculate condition. Thoroughly enjoyed the Par 3's on this course, pituresque and interesting. Greens were challenging and you could have a good crack at the undulating landscape, yet not get punished. One of my favourite courses in Victoria

If you are a RACV member it is a very cheap game of golf on an excellent course. The condition is immaculate and the views on the back 9 are as good as anywhere around.
