Where2Golf says: 

Peninsula Kingswood Country Golf Club (South course): Following the 2013 merger of Peninsula Country Golf Club and Kingswood Golf Club, the merged club sold-off the Kingswood facility in Dingley Village, concentrating its focus on the Peninsula site. Here, members and overseas visitors can ply their golfing skills on two excellent 18-hole championship courses ... the North and South.

The South course is the longer of the two layouts at PKCGC, and was traditionally known as the club's championship course ( ... before the major renovation of its sibling in 2016). Although not as dramatic nor as undulating as its sibling, and some would say not as handsome nor as well-groomed ... the South should not be overlooked.

Although flatter in the beginning, the South's more generous tree-lined fairways, good quality bunkering and large sloping greens combine to produce another excellent test for your golfing skills. Roaming across a natural and expansive environment, the layout becomes more undulating on the arguably better back-nine.

When playing Peninsula South, be prepared to have every part of your game tested. And like the usually higher-rated North course, carding a good score becomes an ever greater challenge when the wind blows.

Did you know?

The Peninsula CGC takes its name from the Mornington Peninsula, which stretches away to the south. The club started life in 1922 as the Tower Golf House Company, a residential golf and country club for men and women, located in a country setting well outside the rapidly urbanising sprawl of Melbourne. A picture of the splendid Tower House (now replaced by a more modern clubhouse) hangs in the lounge of the clubhouse.

In 2013 Peninsula CGC merged with the Kingswood Golf Club to form the Peninsula Kingswood Country Golf Club. It was the first merger of two golf clubs in Australia. Founded in 1904, Kingswood was home to an 18-hole sandbelt golf course, located in Dingley Village, 22 km north of Peninsula CGC. The Kingswood course was sold-off by the newly merged club to a property development company in 2015, and the course in Dingley Village was expected to close in 2018.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
