PORT FAIRY RANKED TOP 14 GOLF CLUB IN AUSTRALIA FOR 2021!by PORT FAIRY & REGION VISITOR INFORMATION CENTRE
Situated at the end of the iconic Great Ocean Road, Port Fairy Golf Club offers a true natural links experience unrivalled by any on the Australian mainland. A little over three hours’ drive from Melbourne and only a five-minute drive from the award-winning Port Fairy township, the golf course is nestled amongst rolling unspoilt sand dunes and boasts breathtaking views of the raging Southern Ocean. Often compared to the famed links courses of Scotland and Ireland, Port Fairy Golf Links offers a unique golfing challenge without the 24-hour flight to indulge your passion.
Currently ranked at No.14 in Australia’s Top-100 Public Access Courses and rated as No.1 in the country for green fees under $50 by Golf Australia Magazine, Port Fairy Golf Links will not disappoint travelling golfers looking for a new destination to mark on their golfing calendar. After a recent visit to Port Fairy Golf Links, world renowned course architect Tom Doak tweeted – “Michael Clayton has been telling me for 15+ years that I should make the drive West from Melbourne to see this place, and I finally made it today. Can’t think of a better golf course for $49 in this day and age.”
“The evolution of this wonderful links layout continues, having been ranked No.31 in this list in 2011. There have been lots of changes to the layout during the past decade – from the addition of bunkers, the clearing of coastal scrub and the rebuilding of several greens – all of which have improved this seaside gem.” – Brendan James.
“Not only does Port Fairy offer one of the best valued for money rounds in the country, it is a memorable golfing experience for everyone … from pros and elite amateurs right through to the casual holidaying golfer, such is the quality of this simple but always interesting design.” – John Blackwell.
