The all new Patterson River Country Club has been superbly designed along similar lines to Australia’s leading resort style courses.

It has been built around a 15-hectare lake system which brings water into play on most holes of the course.

In addition, it features superb couch fairways, undulating pennlinks bent greens are guarded by an extensive array of bunkers.

The new course is a challenging test for golfers of all abilities.

Patterson River's golf course measures 6197 metres from the men's blue tees (par-72) and 5210 metres from the women's red tees (par-72).

Played here in a 4BBB Social Golf Victoria competition today. First time I've played Patterson River Golf Club and I was pretty impressed. Not an overly long course and rather forgiving should you go a little wayward off tee. Fairways were lush to hit off, you don't get much run on though. Greens were good fun too, super quick and hard. I didn't find find my way into the bunkers today, but when I did I escaped trouble. Good value course

Played on Friday 14th March late afternoon. I'm a 19 handicapper and found the course reasonably straight forward to navigate, hit 4 over for 9 holes. There is a lot of water but fairways are still wide so water only comes into play when you really go off target IMHO. The greens were not in great condition, quite patchy with just dirt in some areas with no grass. The fairways were in good condition. I played for nothing due to a free voucher i was given. The course was nice but compared to some around I'm not sure I'd play it again.

Can't speak highly enough of this course. Played last Sunday and the greens were hard, flat and fast, exactly as they should be. Putting from above the hole, especially downwind, was a serious task. The fairways were like carpet and the rough long enough to penalise without having to spend an age finding your ball. The water was strategically placed, as was OB in certain places. This is a real thinking person's course, at least off the white members tees as I played off. I hit driver on two of the 10 par-fours, one three wood and the rest 3-4-5 irons. Position is key here, with doglegs, bunkers and trees all demanding fairway or bust. Take driver at your peril on the short par-4s, and the par-5s are reachable with the right wind but miss wide and water/OB is your punishment without exception. I can think of at least 8-9 really, really good holes, 5-6 good holes and only a couple (two of the par-3s) that aren't up to too much. That's a ratio to be proud of. The bunkers unfortunately were devoid of sand, which could owe to the wild winds of late. Thankfully I stayed out of them bar one, but playing partners had a bit of a battle with them. The tees were also scratchy as they'd just been redone, but didn't affect our enjoyment at all. On a Sunday afternoon, we got around in a touch over 4hrs which was sensational. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating, and all in all it cost us $27 each through our Golf Passport. Unreal value. Hope I'll be back and anyone considering it should drop what they're doing and book a time now. 4.5 stars and deservedly so.

I played here today wow. Great Course best I've played on yet. Fairways and Greens are perfect. I can't think of a bad thing to say about it. Not the hardest course so a high and medium handicapper wouldn't struggle. Hit straight and you will be rewarded. Will be going back there again
