Located in Melbourne’s Sandbelt region, Sandhurst Club boasts two great championship golf courses, both rated amongst the Top 100 courses in Australia. Sandhurst’s innovative Champions Course, designed by the legendary Peter Thompson is an excellent course to try and master and one that we feel must be on every Australian golfer’s bucket list.
There are a number of unique aspects to this beautifully designed course that make it stand out from the crowd.
• Inspired by the PGA champions of the past, each hole is dedicated and named after previous masters of the game, who had been crowned Australia PGA champion.
• The entire course is sand capped meaning that it can be enjoyed throughout all seasons and in all weather.
• The Champions Course is surrounded by history with over 20 heritage listed gum trees, some over 1200 years old to be found along the 18 holes. If you look carefully you can still see where canoes have been carved out of some of these trees and if you are unlucky this is also where you may find your lost ball.
• Hole 11, Norman Von Nida. This beautiful par 3 is up hill and has a stunning bunker complex dominating the front of the green, which must be carried to land on a fiercely contoured putting surface.
• The whole style of this parkland course is designed to entice players with open fronts to greens and large, true-rolling putting surfaces and bold undulations on the greens.
With so many great reasons to play plus the excellent facilities offered by Sandhurst Club, its great location and welcoming atmosphere, there really is no reason why you shouldn’t be planning your next golf adventure here. See how you fair teeing off on Carnegie Clarke.
