COURSE DETAILS

At all times of the year the towering gums and tree ferns which line the fairways, and the ever present songs from the hundreds of bell birds, make for a wonderful golfing experience.

For Spring visitors the vibrance of the season is reflected in the splashes of colour from Camellias and Rhododendrons, whilst an Autumn visit rewards golfers with splendid visions of unforgettable leaf colours, toned by the crisp, clear morning air.

Really enjoyed this course. Fairly easy to secure a tee time, very well priced, friendly staff in the shop and a clubhouse that is comfortable both in and out. The Lakes 9 is fairly standard, although there are some great holes - the 2nd is a tight, well-designed hole, the 4th is a beauty, as is the 9th. The greens weren't flash on the day we were there - which may be just bad luck - and the flies are out of control but all in all it was enjoyable. The Hills is even better, I'd happily play my club golf here day in, day out. The par-fives are flat out great, especially the 10th. It's a course you can score well on, and doesn't penalise with lost balls but rather trees and bunkering that will result in bogeys or worse if not avoided. The drive is doable from the CBD and is definitely worth it. Well played Cardinia.

Without doubt my favoured Public Access Course within a short drive of town. I have been playing this course spasmodically since the mid 1990's and without fail, I enjoy it. Even for intermediate golfers like myself I find its an excellent mix of my favourite parts of golf (hills, trees, quick greens, scenery) without the things I hate (water, sand, backlogs of players). Its not overly 'hard' for novices, but certainly enough to think about for us middle of the roaders to keep you coming back. I guess a Pro would want something with more 'disaster potential', but I am far from worrying about such matters! Its in great condition (played 4 or 5 times since Jan 13) however undoubtedly the Hills course is the way to go. The 3rd and 10th holes of the Hills are my picks - just stunning on a fine day. The wildlife is abundant and the staff have always been nothing but nice. The only knocks are the lack of diagrams/signage at the tees as there a few blind shots, plus the Lakes 9 is pretty ho-hum compared to the Hills. If only I lived closer I would join for membership - alas its a tad too far to come every week.

Played all 27 holes yesterday to cover off the Hills and Lakes courses all at once. The 18 holes of the Hills course is in considerably better condition and is clearly the primary 18 holes of the club. The course setting is beautiful, with lush forested areas and plenty of wildlife wandering around. The severe changes in elevation make for an interesting layout and also some tired calf muscles at the end of the day. The Hills course has some difficult and very long Par 3's, including the 204m 2nd which is guarded by a large bunker at the front of the green, requiring a long flighted shot that pulls up quickly on the dance floor to avoid running off into the bush behind. The stand out holes for me were the 3rd, 4th and 15th, all mid length Par 5's that took advantage of the undulating terrain and required a variety of golf shots. The Lakes is a slightly easier course due to the length of the Par 4's and could actually be the best 9 of the overall course if maintained in the same condition as the Hills. The greens and tees were still in really good condition, however a number of the fairways were a little light on for grass coverage. Overall, Beaconhills Golf Course offers an extremely interesting and enjoyable layout and is a course I wouldn't hesitate to return to.

Played here mid Jan, probably not the ideal time as it was a very hot day. Played the lakes composite blue course and had a great time. Very picturesque but the hills section is a real workout so make sure you come prepared to do a bit of hill climbing. Most of the holes are fairly straightforward and the fairways are quite wide so the course is very forgiving. The staff in the pro shop were very friendly and helpful as well as in the club house after our round. The course itself is fairly priced and apart from the weather being so hot it was very enjoyable and I would play here again.

Played it 21st of February and the green were good and fairways OK. Good layout. Very hilly, so you get a good workout.

Played here on Saturday 3/10/09 There is no longer the lakes and hills courses which others have reviewed. The two courses are now called Stoney creek course and the old course. From what i can gather it is a composite set up of 27 holes, with both courses sharing 9 of those holes to make up the 18 each. I needed a cut lunch and compass to find the first tee. there are two sets of numers on each tee square sign, making it kinda hard to figure out on your first visit. I found it to be challenging as there was no pictures of the holes on either the signs or the card making getting out the driver on some blind tees a fair gamble. Hoping to come in better now i have palyed there once. Confusing lay out and giggling 16 y.o girls in the pro shop aside, I found the course to be in very good condition. The greens were excellent quality. Not too quick but true rolling and well maintained. The fairways were ok (A little damp in places) but again well maintained. overall the condition of the course and the new price of $18 for 18 holes on a weekend will see me back there again soon.
