Settlers Run Golf & Country Club
18 Holes
PAR 72


The Settlers Run golf course has seen Greg Norman draw inspiration from Melbourne's renowned sandbelt courses to create a dramatic, natural golf setting just 45 minutes south-east of the Melbourne CBD.

The design of the 18-hole championship golf course takes advantage of the undulating landscape and native vegetation to create a layout that complements the surrounding environment.

The bunkering is a key feature of the design, with Greg Norman using dramatic sand faced bunkers for which the Melbourne sandbelt is renowned.

Played today on a mild summer's day of 25 degrees, with a slight wind. I liked this course right from the first tee & it continued to get better. The fairways were great, bunkers were plenty & the greens were big & fast. The back 9 had some very interesting & testing finishing holes to keep you keen. Respect this course as a wayward shot will eat you up, but a well thought out shot will reward. I walked the course but a cart would have been easier on the legs on a long, soft fairway course. An overall great experience!

Played for the 1st time yesterday (Thursday before easter) and there wernt many on the course.  

The course is fantastic, but very challenging and long.  You cannot fault the greens, fairways or bunkers.  The staff were very friendly and the greenkeepers were encouraging (they were rebuilding a bunker on the 9th). 


There is plenty of wildlife, and we saw 2 snakes near a water hazard (Copperheads), I think it was the 12th.  So be carefull when looking for your ***** .

Great course, will definitely play again.

Dont know how they could make it better, and considreing the green fees are well priced  so I will give it a 5 star.

Played the course Feb 15. Started on the 10th tee and i think they do this to get the field moving but would have loved to play it 1-18 as the back nine is definitely the easier nine for scoring once warmed up. The rough is brutal and there are snake signs everywhere which make you think twice before heading into the rough to look for your ball. It is a definite reload course if you are offline. Bunkering is good but many of them appear for show and you have to hit a pretty bad shot to find them. The ones I found were in good condition and quite easy to play from. Good course but would be boggy in winter the course was quite damp playing in the morning and they were redoing the drainage on the majority of the front nine. Greens were true but quite slow. Staff were great and not bad value for $60. Give it a few years and it should be a ripper if they thin out another layer of rough. The course would be terribly slow in a full field. Even midweek it is quite slow with the amount of time spent looking for balls just off the fairway

This course deserves a higher rating in the public eye. Played it off the black tees on the 14th Feb 2014. Great condition and a real challenge - some 6650m. The fairways are near perfect, the greens are ideal. A GPS would be a good advantage to take as with all good golf courses it's quite deceptive off the tee. What can look like a daunting tight drive can actually be quite open and vice versa. Don't go in the bush - simply don't. This is pure snake country. However the two we saw was balanced out by some kangaroos and also an echidna! I wouldn't play the course in the wet. In true Greg Norman style it has been exceptionally well prepared and watered, but that also means that it retains water and becomes boggy.

I played Settlers Run for the first time on Sunday 14th Oct 2013 in very windy, cold and wet conditions. My first impressions were of very good conditioning of the course with true running greens and well grassed fairways. With the wind getting up to 45KPH it was a true test of golf and the course was still very playable and I would suggest the wind is a common thing in these surrounds. The front nine had a very common theme about it with lots of raised tees playing downhill to wide fairways and then playing uphill to raised firm greens. With the wet conditions it had made the fairways quite soft so the course was playing quite long but the greens were excellent, firm, true but still accepting of a well struck iron shot. The second nine started on a more interesting note but then came a run of par 4's, although very good holes were a little monotonous and to me lacked the classic 2 x par5's & 3's. The stand out holes to me were the 11th a short par 3 with a narrow green, the 12th a mid par 4 with water running down the right, the 17th a mid par 4 with water on the right and an angled fairway and the 18th is great finishing hole that sets up well for a big drive and then a testing uphill second. With the wet conditions it had made the fairways quite soft so the course was playing quite long but the greens were excellent, firm, true but still accepting of a well struck iron shot. Overall, this course is a pleasure to play and compared to Ranfurlie and Sandhurst it shows what you can do in this area.

Played here 2 weeks ago, not quite as good as I expected after having played a couple of other Greg Norman designs,but still a good challenging course. We played the back nine first because they were closing it to shoot rabbits in the afternoon, and they really need to have got a few, rabbit shit and scratching everywhere, not so bad on the front nine, apart from that course in reasonable nick,greens were good, but a bit expensive compared to some others in the area.
