Where2Golf says: 

Portsea Golf Club: Mainly cut out of the coastal forest of small, knarled, wind-blown trees that cover this end of the Mornington Peninsula, golf at Portsea has a very linksy feel. This predominantly open and expansive course, with good-width fairways and grassy-topped bunkers, is laid out over impressively rolling, sandy terrain, ensuring most holes are played either up or downhill (which your legs are likely to register by the end of the round). From the highest elevations you may also get a glimpse of Port Phillip Bay, but extensive sea views are not a key feature of Portsea. Until you develop some "local knowledge", the fast greens with their steep run-offs, and the small trees and bushes, seem to combine to "punish" what you might otherwise think are good shots. In particular, beware the short par-4's; with names like Little Devil, they are worth carefully sizing-up and treating with great respect. When the wind blows, as is often the case this close to the sea, the course will fully test your game - and more.
