A hidden gem of a golf course located just two hours' drive from Melbourne via the Maroondah Highway.
Alexandra Golf Club offers a unique test as its layout weaves inside and outside of the local horse racing track, which is in play on more than half the holes.
Eighteen wide grassed fairways, gently undulating and never crowded, make golfing in Alexandra worth a day trip from Melbourne.
Clubs and buggies may be hired and the licensed clubroom has barbecue facilities.
Many of the fairways are dominated by giant River Red Gums that demand you get your drive positioned well, and there are several large dams that you need to avoid.
