In addition to being surrounded by some of the east coast's most enticing scenery, Pacific Dunes' natural sandy base and rolling topography, combined with temperate, year-round golfing weather, create the perfect setting for a course to suit all golfers to a tee.
Winding through the natural undulations of the site, the international standard championship course comprises two distinct nine-holes.The back nine is interwoven among natural lakes and wetlands, while the outward nine meanders through shady Angophoras and Swamp Mahogany trees, an extension of the natural landscape.
Both nines play to a par of 36 with the typical championship configuration incorporating two par fives and two par threes on each nine. You won't be able to blame the wind on an off day, with the layout designed to ensure there's no predominant hole orientation, regardless of wind direction.
Thoughtful and tactical design delivers a pleasurable round for everyone, regardless of handicap. Careful consideration of hazard placement, reduced potential for water carries and the integration of teeing options coupled with generous fairway widths make it a course with varying degrees of difficulty for every level of golfer.
The course, incorporating a driving range and a practice green, feature premium Santa Ana fairway turf surfaces and Bent grass greens. Conveniently adjacent to the eighteenth green is the elegant Golf Villa (interim clubhouse), designed by Philip Cox at the heart of the casual, relaxed lifestyle of Pacific Dunes.
Ideally located next to the eighteenth green and in close proximity to the 1st and 10th tees, with panoramic views across the water, the course and the surrounding bushland, the Golf Villa is the perfect place to relax with friends. The Golf Villa provides a high standard of services ranging from drinks in the bar, casual dining to a fully stocked Golf Shop.
