Sandhurst Club's two courses are nationally renowned for their challenging but fair design, oustanding condition and stunning visual appeal. Sandhurst is the Official Home of the PGA of Australia and PGA Q-School and the PGA Legends Tour are held on either of the courses annually. The Club has previously hosted the Victorian PGA Championships and both courses are currently rated in Australia's top 100. Sandhurst is also the official corporate golf club of the St Kilda Football Club.
In an innovative first for golf course architecture in this country, Thomson & Perrett designed the Champions Course in a dedication to past champions of the Professional Golfers’ Association of Australia.
Holes on the sandbelt styled course feature a plaque near each tee as a tribute to the relevant skills and attributes of the past champion, after whom each hole has been dedicated.
Some of the most notable features are the gentle sandbelt style fairway contours, coupled with the open fronts to greens and substantially tree lined fairways.
Emphasising strategic shot making and providing a searching test of golfers short game skills, the open styled North Course features large sprawling greens, where getting to the putting surface is just the start of the challenge!
Borrowing from the traditions of Scotland where Peter Thomson enjoyed his greatest success the course has several distinct features such as the Wall surrounding the 3rd green and the Burn (reminiscent of St Andrews) which dissects the 9th fairway.
Utilising a Legend Couch on the fairways provides the North Course with superb conditioning and playing surfaces all year round.
