Est. 2007

Heritage Golf & Country Club (Henley course): Two stunning and contrasting championship golf courses await at the Heritage Golf & Country Club, located alongside Sebel's Heritage Yarra Valley hotel. The original St John course sits closest to the resort and clubhouse, just south of the passing Yarra River. Across a small bridge on the river's north bank, you'll find the equally impressive Henley course. Laid out in a wonderfully natural and predominantly wetland environment, the course is overlooked by scenic hills that are covered in a mix of swaying grasses, trees and Yarra Valley vineyards. Tony Cashmore's challenging and relatively open layout, incorporates good-width, gently undulating fairways that glide past more water hazards than you can shake a stick at. A veritable feast of rustic-styled, rough-edged bunkering is also present. Although flatter, the front-nine has a few nicely elevated tees and also one or two blind drives to make. Just as you think the course will retain its wetland character right to the end, the par-5 13th leads you away from the water and into a picturesque valley, where kangaroos laze on the grassy hillsides. The par-4 14th presents another surprising change of scene as you head uphill to the highest part of the course, from where the views are fabulous. After negotiating a tee-to-green carry over water at the 15th, you tumble back downhill again at the long par-4 16th. Together with the original St John course, the Heritage offers one of Melbourne's best Stay & Play venues, with both its excellent courses not usually accessible on an outside visitor, daily play basis.

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.
