Course Guide


Hole 1

Men: 463 metre, Par 5; 
Women: 422 metre, Par 5

Hole 2

Men: 326 metre, Par 4; 
Women: 224 metre, Par 4

Lovely undulating par 4 over the hill to an elevated, fast green; bunkers right front of green and left back.

A short but difficult par four with lots of danger down the left and a couple of well placed bunkers guarding the green. 


Hole 4

Men: 167 metre, Par 3; 
Women: 144 metre, Par 3

Good to mid-range, testing, well bunkered par three.If you miss it to the right the ball should feed back onto the green.


Hole 5

Men:  448 metre, Par 5; 
Women: 404 metre, Par 5

A first class par five with a beautiful undulating fairway, wide enough to make it strategically interesting.

There are dangers on both sides of the tee, then sweeping right uphill to a perfectly placed fast sloping green.


Hole 6

Men: 327 metre, Par 4; 
Women:  269 metre, Par 4

Danger to the right off this tee

characterised by the heavily banked dune

so keep to the left. The second shot is to

a relatively small green with very subtle slopes. 


Hole 7

Men: 369 metre, Par 4; 
Women: 322 metre, Par 4

Challenging par 4 with sand to the right of the fairway. Nice approach with stunning views of Belfast Lough.


Hole 8

Men:  122 metre, Par 3; 
Women: 119 metre, Par 3

Downhill par three with a devilishly fast steep green surrounded by deep bunkers. Wind strength and direction can make this hole a significantly daunting prospect


Hole  9

Men: 355  metre, Par 4;

Women:  346 metre, Par 4

The most difficult  hole on the front nine.

This is a very good par four moving from

left to right back to the Clubhouse.


Hole 10

Men: 320 metre, Par 4; 
Women:  282 metre, Par 4

A straight par four slopes from left to right to a back to front sloping green.
Be sure to drive down the left side of the fairway to keep it from rolling down steep slopes to the right.


Hole 11

Men: 141 metre, Par 3; 
Women: 120 metre, Par 3

Terrific short to mid-range par three with great views off to the right and first real view of the ocean on left.


Hole 12

Men: 465 metre, Par 5; 
Women: 387 metre, Par 5

A straightforward par five. The only hazard being the out-of-bounds line to the right and marram left.

Hole 13

Men:  278 metre, Par 4; 
Women: 267 metre, Par 4

Short par four with the fairway and green sloping sharply from right to left.
Best to keep as far right as possible off the tee and be sure to hit right side of green.


Hole 14

Men: 408 metre, Par 4; 
Women: 335 metre, Par 4

This is the most challenging hole on the course with out-of-bounds on the right; the second shot is made difficult by the wind coming off the sea to the right of the green

Note: Voted the best 14th hole in Australia, this is Port Fairy's 'signature' hole with magnificent views of Mills Reef to the right from the men's tee leading steeply downhill toward the green which is back-dropped by the Southern Ocean.


Hole 15

Men: 178 metre, Par 3; 
Women: 140 metre, Par 3

Spectacularly redesigned in 2006 to hug the coastline, the 'new' 15th has been described as "the best new hole in Australia" and is certain to become one of the most photographed.

Hardest par 3 on the course and important not to miss the green to the right.

Women:  325 metre, Par 4

A sweeping dogleg left this par four has a blind tee shot with the second shot to the green made more difficult by a sloping elevated green.
