Kingswood
There hasnt been a review for kingseood in a while so here is a little update. I would say kingswood would have to be one of the most underated courses in victoria, if not australia. I played here on sunday for the 3rd time,and once again i was very satisfied. Everything about kingswood is fantastic, very friendly staff and great food, a lovely old clubhouse filled with honour boards of a proud history,mainly filled with the names of su hyun oh (#2 ranked female in the world) and current world top 100 golfer marcus fraser who i hear is still a regular. As for the facilities their are not much better for the price you pay. Putting green besides the club house and a huge 250m driving range with enough spaces for at least 20 people. The course itself is amazing,not the longest course but definately a very tricky one even for players on very low handicaps. The greens are true and fairways are always in mint condition,the drainage here is superb and conditional wise this would have to be one of the best in victoria, beautiful all year round.the pick of the wholes would be the par 4 11th rated #2 a beautiful uphill dogleg right to left whole with an allmighty fast putting surface that you be very happy to walk off with a par and the par 3 15th over a little lake that once again proves to be a diffucult hole to land near the pin, if your not long enough your ball will fall into the gully and you will be left with a tricky uphill putt and if your long a bunker awaits you which leaves a very difficult 2nd shot just to stay on the green. All up i love Kingswood, a very underated course comparable to even its close neighbours Victoria, woodlands and spring valley, get in soon as possible as a merger with peninsula may occur.

Played the South Course in 35 degreee heat the other day and loved it! Fairways and greens are very well manicured, some bunkers had varying depth of sand though, but nothing to be concerned about. The course has an interesting mix of holes that played both up and downhill with well placed bunkers. Fairways are generous, but the course is all about the approach shot with some two tiered greens that are well protected. The club house facilities are second to none.Highly recommended!

Played there on 19th June. Great layout with loads of variety on each hole.You need to think your way around due to the well placed bunkers and sloping fairways on some holes.Driver not required off every tee as straying off the fairway often results in a lost ball due to the rough and bracken. Greens were consistent and still quick considering the recent rain. Easily rates with or higher than any sandbelt course.

I assume you have made a typo and are referring to 9 being a shitheap and not 18 Peter Pan? If so, you are on the money

Probably one of the least spoken about sandbelt courses, Kingswood is definately a course to consider for those looking to make a step up from public or social golf. The course has remained true to its original character except for the horrible changes that has left the club with holes 4 and 7. Remove these and you have a nice little track that has elements of courses rated much higher than it, including Woodlands. However, they are there and will continue to drag the course sown the ratngs until both are sorted with a barrage of earth moving equipment and a good architect The green complexes are in the main interesting and the routing provides enough interest without it being overly difficult or unique. The wonderful new front gate must make the local Dingley crowd very proud, and the older clubhouse is a nice place to have a relaxing beer on the porch after a round. Experienced members usually play in the morning due to the noise coming from the bar after lunch making tee shots on 1 and 10 a little noisy The starters hut is rarely used but like Spring Valley, is a nice little nic nak The club recently dug an ASR system could allow the Club to store up to 25 million litres of water a year, effectively increasing its water supply for irrigation by almost 50 per cent. Any water problems should be a thing of the past should the trials prove successful We also like the extra hole that should stay permanent and they can alternate between 4 and 7 as the hole out of play. One wonders what would have happened if the board had taken up Mr Williams offer for a land swap and new course where the Capital now lies. One also wonders whether it is still a prime target for property development given the amount of club competition in the area. Anyhow, I have always enjoyed my hits at Kingswood (except for 4 and 7)...until of course you get to 18, and see possibly the worst bunker complex in Melbourne. I like Kingswood

Measures 6082m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 130-180m, ten par 4s ranging from 280-409m and four par 5s ranging from 470-504m. Course is in superb condition. Greens are quick and run smoothly, fairways are good not overly wide but allows a slightly errant shot to still find the fairway, the teeboxes are lush and flat. If you can manage...stay away from the trees... Some weak par 3s but some very good bunkering keeps your ego in check. Some of the short par 4s - the 333m 1st, 304m 7th, 280m 10th and 322m 17th plays a little different with perhaps an iron off the tee to set up a low score. Highlights include: * 367m 8th (index 3) with water along the right from tee to green, to a widish fairway landing area, bunker short right and a deep greenside left trap with water over the back of the green. * 409m 9th (index 1) with 3 fairway bunkers right with a bunker 40m short right with 3 large greenside bunkers guarding a green which slopes rear to front. * 395m 11th (index 2) with OOB homes on the left, fairway bunkers on the right with a slight uphill 2nd shot to a tiered green sloping from rear to front guarded by 2 bunkers short left. * 504m 16th (index 8) plays slightly uphill with 3 fairway bunkers left, fairway narrows from about 250-260m from the tee, trees left and right to negotiate on your 2nd shot to a green guarded by bunkers left and right. Played here on the 5 August 2010 open day and paid $60 competition fees. Great bunkering, not overly long with a more picturesq (and challenging) back nine. As an interstate golfer, I will always remember the windy and wet day I played Kingswood - the first course I have played on the sandbelt. Highly recommended.
