Port Fairy ranked number 23 for Public access courses in Australia in 2013!
(Ausgolf's Top 100 Public Access Courses in 2013 - full list here)
Congratulations go to to our dedicated Greens staff on this wonderful achievment.
Consistently ranked as one of "Australia's 50 Best Courses" and one of the "25 Best Public Access Courses in Australia" this classic links style course winds its way through unspoilt sand dunes and provides spectacular views of the Southern Ocean.
"Those familiar with the golf course at Port Fairy will know that it is a precious and unique layout. Nowhere else in Victoria is golf played so close to the ocean or along dune land of such quality.
The gently rolling sand dunes of Port Fairy Golf Club have been largely unaltered by man, only mown in order to define fairways and rough giving rise to a wonderful natural 'feel'.
The club is developing a higher profile amongst the golfing community, earning the reputation of a golf course worth traveling a long way to play - almost to the point of enjoying 'cult' status."
Excerpts from Michael Clayton Golf Design Masterplan for Port Fairy Golf Club
Golf Australia ".....it (Port Fairy) is the best value golf in the world - without question."
A three-hour drive from Melbourne, this magnificent course doubles as one of the great coastal walks in Victoria and is just a few kilometres from one of the states most desirable seaside retreats, Port Fairy.
Set in towering linksland overlooking the Southern Ocean it enjoys cult status among true golf nuts for its formidable challenge but it's difficult to get too upset about bad shots in such an awesome location.

Port Fairy goes straight to my top ten favourite courses to play, what an absolute treat and I'll be encouraging as many of my members as possible to play it.
