COURSE DETAILS

Lang Lang Golf Club is commonly referred to as the "Augusta of Gippsland". It has 18 classic holes set among commanding gum trees with tight fairways that demand accuracy and not necessarily distance from the tee.

The course was designed in 1963 by former Australian Open winner, George Naismith and takes advantage of sensational bay views from the 1st tee. It is built on a sand-belt and provides excellent conditions all year round. The fairways are couch and a new watering system has enabled lush green fairways throughout the long summer months.

The club has a full bar and dining facilities and visitors are most welcome. Colin Casey manages the golf shop and provides a great choice of equipment and apparel. The visiting player often feels he is the only golfer on the course such is the seclusion offered by the tall eucalypts, definitely no ducking for cover when playing this golf course.

Green fee players are welcome to play at anytime, except Saturday morning.

Played at Lang Lang GC today for the first time and it was well worth the drive from Melbourne! The course is in fantastic condition with lush narrow fairways on some holes and more forgiving wider fairways on others. The Dogleg fairways favour the player with a fade off the tee. The Par 3 holes require accuracy to avoid multiply greenside traps! Most of the holes have small, fast undulating greens that are a true test and bunkers that contain plenty of sand! The green keeping staff look after this course immaculately! Lang Lang's layout is built on sand so drainage is not an issue and the length of the course is not overly long but don't miss the fairways! Will definitely play Lang Lang GC again!

Played today. Well worth the hour drive from melbourne. Best value for money public course in Victoria. I played Riversdale yesterday, and lang lang is in better condition. Best greens I have putted on.Couch fairways are brilliant.Interesting layout, must be accurate with tee shots. Every other course in Melbourne is soaked, this one is in perfect condition. I will be making the drive to lang lang weekly.

Played on Sunday in an ISG social group of 8. Weather was mild and windless. The course .......despite floods raging in country Victoria and lots of recent rain .......... was in perfect nick. A quick bit of history for those inclined. Lang Lang Golf Club dates back to the 1920's when it was a 9 hole course played on land made available by various farmers in the region. This transient lifestyle encouraged members to try and locate a site that would provide stability and allow for improvements to the standard of course presentation. In the early 1960's suitable Crown land was found near Nyora and a leasing agreement entered into between the Golf Club and the Government.In 1963 former Australian Open Golf Champion, George Naismith offered his services without charge to design a course that would stand the test of time. Naismith's original hand drawn sketch of the course he planned still hangs proudly in the clubhouse. Back to the course review ....... and Lang Lang, the self proclaimed Augusta of Gippsland, opens with a mid length par 4 of 368 metres from an elevated tee. The hole only slightly doglegs around a huge tree on the approach to the green, but if you're not on the correct side of the fairway off the tee, the tree will block you from the hole. While everything is laid out before you on the 1st tee, and it all looks benign, if you don't hit it to the correct area, 5 seconds later you will know that par may already be out of the question. This is the sort of course Lang Lang is. It doesn't look hard, and shouldn't be hard, but stray into the wrong areas and it will bite you. The course features lots of doglegs and bends, so positioning is key around here. The design of the course is very well thought out. Our group of 4 struggled for par on a couple of the short par 4's, which went to prove you don't need to have huge long holes in order to cause a golfer headaches. Lang Lang was designed back in the 60's and using 60's length holes, yet it is as relevant, and as hard today as it was back then, and is a real tribute to the ageless design skills. While a lot of courses designed back then are now outdated due to long hitting, Lang Lang's clever design has kept it relevant and a fair golfing test. Fairways on the tree lined course are immaculate, and even the rough is not to penalising if you stray off line .. just keep out of the trees. The course bunkering serves a purpose, to offer some risk reward, to make various pin positions easy or hard, and the tempt the golfer to give it his best. While they aren't full of sand like St Kilda beach, they are fairly consistent in depth .... aside from being a bit compacted at the moment by all the recent rains. The greens are in superb nick and are playing very consistently around the course. If you can read the subtle breaks you'll have a good day out on them. There no long par 3's on the course, they average about 145, but the par 4s range from 403 metres right down to 288 metres, and are all well designed and thought out. Toss in a couple of short par 5's which are achievable, and you have a great mix of holes. Lang Lang is not what you'd call a hilly course by any means either, it's a relaxing walk through a lovely country course. If you want to have a relaxing enjoyable day on a golf course that offers something for everyone (and at under $30 on the weekend), yet can challenge your game ....... I'd certainly recommend Lang Lang.
