4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2009

RACV Healesville Country Club: Nestling in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and only a 75-minute drive from Melbourne, the centrepiece of RACV Healesville is its 18-hole golf course designed by Mike Clayton. Surrounded by beautiful native trees and vegetation, the partly open and partly tree-lined layout is well short of championship length. But that really doesn't seem to matter.

At just under 5,000 metres (5,400 yards) off the back tees, the par-68 course occupies attractive and gently undulating terrain. Clayton's well-crafted layout, with six par-3s, several short par-4s and a couple of shortish par-5s will thoroughly test your all-round game, while also offering some good scoring opportunities.

RACV Healesville is the perfect antidote to golfers obsessed by length. Here a premium is placed on accuracy. Most amateurs will no doubt enjoy the chance to bag a few more pars than usual. In this pleasantly natural golfing environment, the main objective is not to blast away with a wayward driver, but to relax, enjoy taking in the Yarra Valley environment, and above all .... combine your golf with having some fun!

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.
