The Yering Meadows Golf Club formally known as the Croydon Golf Club was established in 1925 and over the years has earned the reputation of being the premier golf club in the eastern suburbs.

Now located on 330 acres in the Yarra Valley, the World Class course designed by Architect Ross Watson is arguably the finest in the area. Yering Meadows is renowned as a very friendly club and the clubhouse facilities provide the ideal surroundings for the relaxation and enjoyment of members and guests.

The 27 hole layout consists of fairways covered with pure Legend Couch and the Greens are Bent Grass. The course is a great challenge for golfers of all abilities.

Played here today with a Golflinkdeal.com.au voucher after having to book 1.5 months in advance to play on a Sunday. We played holes 19-27 + 1-9 (aka Homestead combination course). No social comp available. Overall, I was pretty disappointed. Course has a great layout with well protected greens but is let down by the condition of the course. Fairways look like they're dying and weren't that great to hit off. Rough was a combination of soggy, patchy or hard. Greens were quite interesting, but so many unrepaired pitchmarks. Bunkers were everywhere + had no sand in them. Holes 19-27 wasn't great to start an 18 hole game. Felt newish? New trees? New fairway grass in patches? Holes 1-9 was heaps more interesting + in better condition. Would I play here again? Only if I could play holes 1-18 + on voucher specials.

I took advantage of one of the good deals going around i.e $70 with cart for 2. I must say that I wasn't expecting too much given some of the less than favourable reviews going around. However, I must say that I was VERY IMPRESSED with the course. A great challenge, and I look forward to playing the Nursery course next time. Only negative would be that the greens weren't being looked after properly by the players- there were numerous unrepaired pitch marks. I expect due to the numbers of non-members that get access to the course. If you get the chance- please play this course- it's underrated.

The course has a great layout, and while definitely challenging enough for the low handicapper, is also more than pleasurable for the higher handicapper like myself. The staff in the pro shop are excellent and extremely cheerful. As for the course itself, the greens are well designed and kept in very good nick and the views from just about every hole are incredible. Unfortunately the course is being severely let down at the moment in the condition of the fairways (and to similar extent, the rough). While not a member, I have played semi-regularly since it first opened and it seems in the past year, the has been a lot of fescue ingress and other weeds on to the fairways. The course maintenance guys really need to get on top of this quickly or I have no doubt the other nearby courses that have just opened (or will shortly) will quickly snap up those wanting a Yarra Valley golf experience. For the price of green fees, I would have to say the current course condition doesn't justify the expense. Hopefully with the warmer months ahead and if the club pull their finger out and make a concerted effort to ridding the fairways of the fescue, the course will again get back to what should be an unforgettable golfing experience.

Played holes 1-18 today on a voucher and was quite disappointed with the course conditions. Called to book and told it was in alright shape. There were 4 days of sun and no rain the day we played and we had to play off 2 temporary tees(one where we had to use the driving range for a fairway)the other 16 holes were basically mud and all around the greens were gur. Greens and bunkers were amazing which was fun having the balls stick and spin near the pin but other than that it was very average. Played in March this year and the course was fantastic. I will return but would firmly suggest that anyone avoids this course if there has been a bit of rain in the month they want to play.

Have now played 30 rounds as an Introductory Member(Mar-Dec 2013) at Croydon Golf Club's new course at Yering Meadows and feel qualified to offer a balanced review of this track given I have played all 27 holes in various conditions and have observed golfers of all abilities tackling the course. From a natural surroundings point of view this course is special with 360 degree views at every turn. Not at all surprising the hot air baloon companies operate in the vicinity. Can be foggy at dawn, but only 1 of my 30 rounds (tee times 7.30-8.00am) was reduced to a 9 hole comp. From a layout perspective the course is very challenging with water features well positioned to penalise any errors in execution. In my view a clear sign as to why the course rates so highly from an architectural point of view. Golfers who enjoy managing their way around the course will quickly or eventually identify "where to miss" and "no-go zones". As far as conditioning goes, the Legend Couch fairways are kept in good knick year-round. Only minimal surface water and roped off areas even in the heart of Winter. From an iron-play point of view I like the fact they don't turn rock-hard in Summer. As for the tee boxes, they are exactly what you'd expect from a championship course....even and well-grassed. The greens here roll true, but are not overly quick outside Pro-Am and Club Championship time. The greens have been shaped and contoured to make for challenging approaches on all holes. Smallish greens with run-off areas provide some defence for the short Par 4s whilst large 2-tiered greens make for an easier target to hit, but often leave the golfer with a tough uphill or downhill putt. The Par 5s here are an excellent test and will appeal to all levels of ability. I have seen golfers succeed most by playing them as genuine "3-shotters", but often the ego will end up hurting the big hitters. Not surprisingly quite a few balls end up in the "drink" on these holes. At any rate I like the fact that these holes can be played a variety of ways. As for the Par 3s, I rate the 16th as the prettiest hole. All are a solid test of golf with short, mid & long irons required. Naturally, choice of club is highly dependent on wind conditions. What I have noticed is how well positioned the fairway bunkers are, capable of trapping the mis-executed drives of the big hitter and just as likely to swallow the mis-timed slice or hook coming off the clubface of the high handicapper. Greenside bunkers are plentiful and reward accuracy as to be expected. Ultimately this is an inspiring course that gives the golfer a great sense of satisfaction when a good score has been posted.

Played Yearing Meadows on Friday the 13th for only the second time and was reminded early in the round what a challenging golf course Yearing Meadows is! 27 holes of beauty, we played 10 to 18 then 19 to 27. Our round began on the testing Par 5 10th with water down the right and a water carry just before the large undulating green. This is pretty much what is in store for you around Yearing Meadows, quite a lot of water can come into play off the tee and thus requires some good course management, use a GPS if you've got one! The Par 3's are a challenge by themselves with more sand than green! The greens had been cored a while ago and had various speed differences, most are large and very undulating with bunkers sorounding them with superb greenside aprons that lead to short thick rough waiting for a missed approach shot. The teeboxes were flat while the fairways could be a little better there were numerous bunkers to negotiate on many of the fairways, all in all we found the course in excellent condition. We took 3 and 3/4 hrs for the two of us in a cart to play 18 holes on this particular day. It was well worth the 1hr drive to get there and I am looking forward to playing Yearing Meadows again!
