The Creek Course is a wonderful complement to The Beach Course. 

The Creek Course has gently undulating couch fairways, and deep bunkers filled with yellow sand. It has firm greens surrounded by interesting bumps, swales and hollows, all closely mown.

There also plenty of greenside bunkering that cuts into and helps mould the slopes of the putting surfaces. This mirrors the best traditions of Melbourne’s Sand Belt much admired by Faldo. 

The native couch fairways are oversewn with fescues. This provides both an excellent, green playing surface year round, and a quick transition back to couch dominance in spring.

Beyond the fairways there is generally a wide zone of maintained short rough prior to either long pasture grasses or the residential areas.

There are some quirky elements too, like the ‘square cut’ tees, the creek itself, and the creative use of a few remaining pines in hole strategy.
