Victoria, the home club of Peter Thomson, Doug Bachli and Geoff Ogilvy, is one of the very best of the sandbelt courses. The original Alister MacKenzie influenced course was changed over many years by the overplanting of trees, the growth of grass bordering fairways as rough and the reduction in size and character of the bunkers.
We have consulted to the club since 1995 and in that time the bunkers have been restored, the negative influence of the trees reduced and the rough has been replaced in many placed by uncovered sand. Like so many of the sandbelt courses the greens determine the strategy from the tees because they are best approached from parts other than the middle of the fairways.
This is an elegant old club and course that continues to evolve and easily holds its own with the best courses in the country.
