The Victoria Golf Club

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

The Victoria Golf Club: Falling into the enchanted world of Victoria Golf Club will surely be one of the most memorable moments of any golfing trip to the Melbourne area. This course is one of Australia's best, and the clubhouse surely one of the country's smartest. The golf course is fabulous by anyone's definition. The gently undulating terrain has been adorned with trees of every variety, bunkers that are unforgettably huge (and golf-ball magnetic), springy fairways and greens that are usually lightning fast (especially when the minimal amount of grass is cut to its very roots !). The layout ensures all these ingredients are brought together into one excellent hole after another - the only thing missing (you'll be glad to here) are any water hazards. Like other courses on the Melbourne sandbelt, a couple of roads run alongside parts of the course perimeter, but any traffic noise simply melts away as you fall under Victoria's spellbinding charms.

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.
