".....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 would like to remind ALL players that it is good ettiquette to repair not only your own pitch marks and divots and to rake bunkers, but to repair any others that you see, it is really easy. I acknowledge that the wet conditiosn make for softer greens and fairways but there is plenty of sand.
In saying that I would like to thank and pat on the back all those players who do make the effort to repair any belmishes they see not just their own, well done your efforts do not go unnoticed and are appreciated.
I would also like to remind members that you may play a practice round on the course but you are restricted to two balls only, otherwise please use our significant practise facilities.
Cheers and good golfing
Thursday 27th August - Star of the West Monthly Medal Stroke & Putting
Qualifying round for Matchplay Championships
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."
