Where2Golf says: 

Huntingdale Golf Club is home to a course that sits with the elite of Melbourne's wonderful collection of "sandbelt" layouts. Underpinning Huntingdale's status as a confirmed favourite with many visiting golfers, are the quality of Hugh Alison's course design and excellence of the (recently rebuilt) clubhouse.

The modestly undulating and mostly tree and bush-lined fairways are stylishly bunkered, while around the greens the bunkering is often prolific. At the par-3 12th the green is literally encircled by sand. Needless to say, Huntingdale demands your bunker play is on song.

The layout's gentle slopes give rise to some nicely elevated tee-boxes and greens, as you'll discover at the excellent back-to-back par-5 6th and 7th holes. The back-nine is perhaps a tad more open than the front, with water in play on a few holes.

The clubhouse facilities include a double-terrace that seems to overhang the 18th green; from your sedentary position on the terrace, you'll enjoy a marvellous view down the entire par-4 18th hole, and onto a couple of other holes besides. A great 19th hole at which to slake one's thirst and perhaps "slate" the golfing artistry (or deficiencies) of others!

Apart from a (not too noisy) perimeter road on one side of the course, Huntingdale presents a wonderful golf oasis. Here the grind of modern day life melts away, to be replaced by the milder challenges of impressive bunkering, tighter than average fairways and cunningly sloping greens.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
