Golf Courses & Resorts

Golf courses and golf club resorts

Want some bragging rights at your local golf club? Then come to Australia’s #1 golf destination. Here’s the ‘need to know’ info: 15 clubs and 20 outstanding courses. 3 courses are in Australia’s top 10, plus another 6 in the top 100. And there’s a fantastic variety of play for novices and experts, with links, parkland and resort courses.

You can play at any time too - the golf is truly year round, with a mild climate, fast-draining sandy soils and sand dunes creating some tricky challenges. And the bonuses? Spectacular coastal views, excellent on-course accommodation and great packages.

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 why not start at the top of the Peninsula and work your way south. There is even an annual golf tournament playing multiple clubs for you to enter.
