World Class Golf Courses
Take a small but beautiful peninsula of land with a mild maritime climate. Create a coastline with perfect conditions for links courses. Add sand dunes for natural contours, with fast-draining sandy soil. Then transform the hinterland to create even more golf terrain with bush backdrops and brilliant views.
That’s the Mornington Peninsula, Australia’s number one golf destination. Golfers simply adore it because of the incredible diversity presented by 15 clubs with 19 links, parkland and resort courses. And when it’s only a few minutes’ drive between each course, you can pack in a lot of golf.
There’s a huge choice of play from social golf to the very demanding Open course at Moonah Links, which designer Peter Thomson calls the ‘Leviathan’ as it’s “one of the largest creatures on the planet”.
Peter Thomson is just one of the golf legends who have designed some of our magnificent courses. Robert Trent Jones Jnr, Ross Perrett, Tony Cashmore, Tom Doak and Greg Norman have all been inspired by the extraordinary terrain on the Mornington Peninsula. The result: Golf Australia has ranked nine courses amongst the top 80 public access courses in Australia.
It’s no wonder this extraordinary region has been likened by many leading golf writers and top players to California’s Monterey, Scotland’s Fife and the Hamptons near New York. So let’s start at the top of the Peninsula and work our way south.
