RACV Healesville…..a decade on

We make a point to visit our courses as often as we can and occasionally we might even get the chance to a hit.  Sadly, it doesn’t happen as often as you might think but it can be one of the most rewarding parts of the job – playing the holes that you laboured over for months or even years.

And so it was a wonderful way to spend a morning heading back to Healesville. The course condition had markedly improved since I’d seen it last at the end of a difficult summer and even after a lot of recent rain the course was surprisingly dry. The greens would put most of the city clubs to shame – firm, fast and poa free and after almost a decade they have developed a lovely mottled, natural look.

The rugged style bunkers, which we built at a time when few examples existed in Australia have evolved beautifully and are perhaps the best preserved of any bunkers we’ve ever built.

The bunkers were constructed in the heavily clay of the Yarra Valley.   Read more about RACV Healesville – click here.
