Where2Golf says: 

Belmont is not only host to one of Australia's most prestigious amateur golf tournaments (see Did You Know ?), it is also one of the best and most authentic seaside links courses in the country. The more tree-lined front nine (mainly small trees and bushes) gives way to a much more open back nine, where glorious Pacific Ocean views and golf alongside the sand dunes is there to be enjoyed (or if the wind gets up, there to show you who's the real boss in this game - the elements !). Pot bunkering along the fairways and around the greens is very well done, giving good definition to the holes, which are flatter on the front nine and slightly more undulating on the back-nine. There are also a few dangerous water hazards, not least a small lake that hugs the left-hand side of the par-5 9th. Around the greens, classic run-offs and slopes encourage bump-and-run approach shots from close-in, and the greens themselves are generally fast and true.
