".....it (Port Fairy) is the best value golf in the world - without question." Golf Australia
The Port Fairy Golf Club has decided to temporarily WAIVE THE NOMINATION FEE OF $100
For those who are members at a club in Melbourne, Port Fairy country membership is a valuable asset against green fees when holidaying over the summer break and other times during the year.
I had the pleasure of playing with one of our sponsors, Mark Conlan of New Select Homes, who had an ace on the 4th, it was pretty to watch one hop and in the hole, perfrect, and congratulations Mark.
It was our first game on the newly created Blue and Red Temporary courses, which hopefully will make scoring easier and keep our handicaps more accurate whilst the 17th & 18th are out of play. Please bear with us during this period I know that there was some bad delays on the 5th tee but next week we have made some adjustments that should minimise the delay as much as possible.
You may have noticed some works being carried out on the 18th, the ground staff have commenced some drainage work that should help areas on the 1st, 2nd, 17th &18th, we will probably keep the 17th & 18th out of play until these works are completed, so please be patient the committee and administration are doing everything that can be done to make the conditions better.
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."
