Spring Valley Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1948

Spring Valley Golf Club: "The Valley" as it is often called, doesn't contain too many valley-like characteristics of its own, being predominantly a flattish layout. The modern clubhouse does however occupy slightly higher ground than the rest of the course, providing for a gently sloping downhill opening par-4, and an equally good uphill closing hole with an elevated green.

Throughout you'll find impressively large bunkers, pleasantly tree-lined fairways and good firm greens. On the par-4 13th water also makes a brief appearance.

The interest quotient is perhaps not as high as on some of Melbourne's better known and more undulating courses and the neighbouring land-fill disposal site may also occasionally be noticed. Overall, however, this is a good layout, demanding adroit course management to card a good score.

Did you know?

Spring Valley reflects the vision and hard work of members of the Forest Hills public golf course in Dandendong, who, in 1947, shared the common objective of enjoying golf on a private sand belt course of high standard with appropriate clubhouse facilities. The vision crystallized in September 1948, with 33 foundation members forming the Spring Valley Golf Club.
