Golf Course Information

The Course

Located in the Sandbelt region, Spring Park Golf Course is one of Melbourne’s loveliest 9-hole golf courses with its botanical garden setting and its beautifully maintained greens and well grassed fairways. The ample bunkering and water hazards combine to provide a course that is a challenge for golfers of all levels.

In addition, a practice area with driving nets and a chip and putt area provide fantastic opportunities to improve your technique and accuracy.

Hole 1

Overview

A straight away slight uphill short par 4. Your drive must be in the fairway as gum trees narrow the drive area near the 200m mark. A three wood from the tee will leave you with a full wedge to a typical famous Melbourne Sandbelt framed green.

Hole 2

Overview

One of the most picturesque holes on the course. A beautiful gentle dogleg with a still pond guarding the front left of the green. A drive down the right side will create the best angle to attack the many pin positions available on this green.

Hole 3

Overview

The first of Spring Park’s four par 3’s, and probably its most difficult. Trees hang over the tee shot creating a “shoot” to hit through. Bunkers protect the green short right and long left. You are advised to take one club extra as the distance is deceiving and the prevailing wind is normally against.

Hole 4

Overview

Another of Spring Park’s tricky short par 4’s and this is a favourite. The Bunyips Pool protects the right side of the fairway. If you are game to take it on, you will be left with the best angle to the green with only a short shot. The wise player takes less club from the tee and aims down the left side leaving a full shot to a very well protected and undulating green.

Hole 5

Overview

The longest par 3 on the course. Uphill and protected by a large bunker on the right side of the green. Golfers can land short here and bounce on to protect from going long.

Hole 6

Overview

Not often is a par 5 ranked as the hardest hole on a course but the 6th certainly is. Your drive must be long and down the left side to give you the best angle for your second. With your second you cannot go left as you will be collected by the “Gotcha Tree” (immortalising John Stores) laying down on the left side. If you manage to keep in play your approach will be to a long narrow green shouldered by two deep bunkers.

Hole 7

Overview

The shortest and the most beautiful. Your tee shot will have to negotiate the overhanging trees on the left protecting the green. On the right another deep bunker. But the hole’s real feature is the calming waters of the billabong directly in front of the tee - whispering to the golfers to hit their ball in there.

Hole 8

Overview

Straight away par 4 pull the driver out and give it a crack. Your second will only be short but to the most protected green on the course surrounded by five bunkers. One of the most difficult greens on the course to putt on.

Hole 9

Overview

Terrific finishing hole with everything laid out in front of you, or is it? Bunker short right and to the left. A long narrow green which lies to its side making club selection paramount. You cannot go long so choose one less to be safe.
