Perfectly positioned within Melbourne’s famous sandbelt courses, Keysborough is a demanding and challenging layout set to test professional and club golfers alike.

Constructed on 220 acres of natural bushland the course is a brilliant piece of engineering design, deserving of its Australian Open rating. Keysborough’s uniqueness stems from its air of informality. Friendly smiles greet you and the prevailing atmosphere is bright and cheerful.

What a beautiful course and very underated compared to a lot of courses in the area. All the greens are heavily guarded by bunkers and if you happen to land in a one the sand cover is very consistent so you can hit each shot with a lot of confidence. Greens are true and always in great nick, fairways are lush and green. What I love about the course is you really have to think your way around, can't pull out driver on every hole and bomb it, you need to be able to work the ball to leave yourself in the best position to attack the green.

Played here about 3 weeks ago with our golf group. My first time playing a course within the sandbelt region. fair bit of rain the days leading up, but the course was supreme. fairway's were awesome. in great nick. greens were really good too, a little slow, but in great condition. maybe the 15th or the 16th, normally plays as a par 5, but due to some renovations on the fairway, it was played significantly shorter. a few birdies scored there. all in all, the course, the clubhouse, everything about it was great. appears to be a bit of history, with the old clubhouse, and the locker room/change room. would definitely play here again. although i think its a private course?

Wow! Played yesterday, great course. Some of the best fairways I have ever seen. Would love to play it again. Not overly long yet still challenging. Staff made us feel very welcome on our guest day.

I played at Keysborough yesterday and to be fair I decided to give an updated version from my last visit in August, 2010. I can say that it was not the same golf course. Fairways on every hole were in pristine condition. After playing at Kingston Heath and Huntingdale earlier this week I believe that Keysborough's fairways are just as good as the highly rated sand belt courses. Bunkers I found to be in great condition. I played out of quite a few (unfortunately) but my lies were always good and I felt confident that there was an even cover of sand in each. Greens were good and relatively quick (particularly on down slope putts) but not too quick. I heard someone say that staff had told them that they hadn't mown the greens too short on our day as there had been some concern with them. I believe if they had been done they would have been like lightning. I noticed some new works being conducted on a number of holes to front approaches to the greens. Unfortunately this just happened to be and will only improve the course for the better in the future. Obviously my previous review was made after heavy rains around that time. I can say that I still recommend this course to anyone and rate it highly when comparing it with Kingston Heath and Huntingdale's condition earlier this week.

After seeing that this course hasn't been rated for a while during the wetter months of the year, and having played it today I have to say I was dissappointed. There has been a bit of rain lately but nothing outragously heavy or consistent. The local rule was preferred lies on closely mown areas with one club length. It was hard to find one fairway where there wasn't a 'sloppy' area that was roped off or in disrepair. I would have thought with all their dams/lakes that they have that drainage would have been improved and the fairways in better condition. God help them if we get a week of heavy rain. The 17th hole (par 5) is closed and shortened to a temporary par 3. Looking at the fairway they are re-sowing it or it is just soo boggy with the rain, it is unplayable. Bunkers were displaying signs of pooled water or which had drained away but then left sand packed/muddy lies. A number of bunkers I played out of today had not been raked and were, I consider, average condition. (This may be because we played Monday morning and the green keepers hadn't had time to start work on these matters??) Greens and tees were good (with exception of the temporary tee on 17 which was on the edge of a sloping fairway) It's been a number of years since I've played here but rating it on it's current condition this week, it loses a few marks from my last visit. Definately a course to be played in the fairer weathered months when the grass is growing.

I played this course with the hope that it was as described, a course that was under rated and fits in well with some of better course around Melbourne. I was dissappointed. Perhaps my expectations were too high. The course is well layed out, greens were superb. Tees and fairways were a little sparse with their coverage and were not mown well at all. Worth a look, and is probably better than the average course, but perhaps look elsewhere for a higher class course.
