Golf Courses

RACV Cape Schanck Resort

Trent Jones Drive (via Boneo Road), Cape Schanck, VIC, 3939.
Region: Mornington Peninsula

RACV Cape Schanck Resort

RACV Cape Schanck Resort's 18-hole championship golf course was designed by American Robert Trent Jones Jr. in the late 1980's, created among rolling sand dunes and surrounded by national park. Perched high on one of Australia's most spectacular coastal headlands, the course boasts stunning cliff-top views over the majestic Southern Ocean and Port Phillip bay. The challenging design and breath-taking scenery combines with the course's brilliantly manicured greens and fairways to provide a fantastic backdrop for an enjoyable day's golfing.

Design: Robert Trent Jones Jnr (1987)

The Dunes Golf Links

Browns Road, Rye, VIC, 3941.
Region: Mornington Peninsula

The Dunes Golf Links

The Dunes Golf Links is in a links style and many of the holes could be plucked straight from Scotland or Ireland. The Dunes is one of very few links style courses in Australia. All the holes are played through and over rolling sand dunes on what is known as the "Cups Country" of the Mornington Peninsula. The championship course features a number of different styles of holes, some with elevated tees hitting down to wide fairways, a number which are generally flat with subtle undulations and some great par 3s where bunkering, wind and large, uneven putting surfaces are the norm.

Par (Length): 72 (6409m)
Design: Tony Cashmore (1997)
Top 100: 16

NOTE: A number of private golf clubs require that visitors have a registered handicap and are members of a recognised interstate or overseas golf club. Documentary proof is generally required. In such cases, GOLFSelect will request that each member of the group supplies a letter of introduction from his or her golf club. Golf clubs that have this requirement are listed with the comment "Letter of introduction required".

Client Testimonials
What a great trip! The arrangements you made for us were outstanding and we truly enjoyed all the accomodations and golf courses. Looking forward to returning to such a beautiful part of the world sometime soon.
Richard S, New York, USA
I am writing to thank you for the wonderful golf holiday that you put together for Paulina and me at very short notice. When we decided to make a visit to Melbourne we looked up websites and found yours. After contact I gave you a "wish list" of courses little expecting that you would be able to accommodate them all into a two week stay which amounted to us playing 17 different courses in 13 days. Your organisation was excellent, accommodation very adequate for the stay, and we were well
Thank you for your assistance in organising our US Masters tour and associated golf. In summary, we had a fantastic time. We really appreciated your assistance in advising on course selection, and timing of the trip - we couldn't have planned it without your assistance. Thanks again to you and your team for your assistance.
Tim M, Melbourne, Australia
To make a long story short: thanks a lot once again for the perfect planning of everything! The whole vacation was great and your preparation and execution of the itinerary was just the best I have experienced yet.
Kai M, Munich, Germany
I have had the good fortune to use GOLFSelect's services on two recent occasions. for a personal golf trip and for a foursome of over-the-hill alpha male choppers from Chicago Golf Club. This latter group has combined golf experience of nearly 200 years, enjoys regular play at their much-revered home course, has played great courses all over the world, and, quite naturally for quasi-retired geezers, expects everything to be perfect or better !!! Except for me, none had ever played golf in Australia. All were missing their anchovy-stuffed olives in Ketel One martinis and were just waiting for any excuse to bash me for having seduced them into traveling halfway around the world to play golf in a country they didn't know had any golf courses !!! Let's just say the margin for error was pretty slim !!! 10 days, 11 courses, 16 rounds and three very surprised and satisfied golfers returned as converts (not convicts) ! I, of course, was already a convert based on my previous outing. Gary and his people know the courses, know the people at the courses, understand the travel logistics and all the other details to package a perfect golf odyssey or single-day outing. He adds to that his genuinely personal and amiable service and he is always available to deal with the inevitable changes. I recommend GOLFSelect unequivocally!
