Portsea is known as one of the best wet weather courses in Australia because of the huge amount of sand base, and as recently as January 2002 the course was rated in Golf Australia as number 25 in the country.
Todays members and visitors enjoy playing on a course set amongst sand dunes and which consistently rates as one of Australia’s finest. Recent design improvements in bunkering, teeing grounds and greens have further enhanced the course. The natural drainage qualities of soils found in the Portsea area also ensures that golfers enjoy a firm footing all year round.
The Club holds several Tournaments throughout the year for Amateurs and Professionals alike. Among these are the "Carlton" Portsea Pro-Am which is held annually on January 2nd and is regarded as being one of the best Tournaments of it’s type in Australia. A 72 hole Amateur event is held in July and a 5 day Spring Tournament is held in November. The club is also proud to conduct a number of events with proceeds being donated to various charitable organizations.
