Where2Golf says: 

The wonderfully natural and tranquil Monash Country Club is located on the edge of the expansive Garigal National Park (the name Garigal is taken from the Ku-ring-gai aboriginal tribe that once inhabited this area). From the large and lofty clubhouse, perched above the course, you can catch sight of the Pacific Ocean, before gently descending down into this scenic, very natural and challenging golf course.

There are quite a few elevation changes on this layout, although members have no hesitation in walking the course's immaculate and tree-lined fairways. The not overly complicated front-nine allows you to iron out any wrinkles in your game, although you'll need to keep the ball reasonably straight to stay out of the ever-present tree-line, which attractively borders each hole. The back-nine gets progressively more interesting, with greater undulations in the terrain and holes that seem to get tougher as you enter the final stretch.

As you might expect of this once exclusive and private Country Club (which now admits a certain amount of outside play), the quality of the greens and bunkering lives up to the overall excellent standard of the rest of the course. With pristine woodland all around the course, one is struck by the variety of the sometimes noisy and boisterous birdlife here, which helps throw a colourful and pleasantly tropical air to proceedings on the course.

Did you know?

Monash CC has hosted several top level tournaments, including the Australian PGA Championship (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Monash). | The Club is named after General Sir John Monash (1865-1931), one of Australia's greatest soldiers. John Monash, originally a civil engineer, became the Australian military commander in the First World War. He commanded the 4th Brigade in Egypt shortly after the outbreak of the War, leading them in the Gallipoli campaign. In 1918 the successful allied attack on Amiens led to the earlier than expected end to WW1. The attack was planned by Monash and spearheaded by the Australian and Canadian Corps. | Just visible from Monash CC is the top of the nearby Baha'i House of Worship, also known as the Baha'i Temple, which is open to the public each day (see www.bahai.org.au ).

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

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...
