Amstel Golf Club (Ranfurlie course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2002

Amstel Golf Club (Ranfurlie course): Ranfurlie, the most recent of the two courses at Amstel GC, is very different from the classic parkland layouts of Melbourne's sandbelt. Here you can experience an inland links style course, with very few trees, but plenty of deep grassy rough and excellent shaggy-topped bunkers defining the good-width fairways. The elevation changes ensure each hole has its own character, and from the highest part of the course, near the clubhouse, there are terrific views all the way through to distant Melbourne city centre. The course fits very well into its surrounding rural environment, and will surely become a popular and established golfing alternative from the usual tree-lined, parkland courses hereabouts.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.

Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
