Moonah Links Resort (Legends) logo Golf Course Review by: Billy Satterfield

The Takeaway:  Legends is the better of the two layouts at Moonah Links and still one of the finest public tracks in Australia. The visual appeal, undulated terrain, and individual hole designs garner the strongest appeal to the course and are well worth a visit when on the Mornington Peninsula.  Grade B+

Accolades:  Ranked 16th in Australia by Golf Course Gurus.

What to Expect:  Moonah Links Resort boasts two golf courses; the Legends with individual holes named after winners of the Austrailian Open, and the Open course which was designed to host large tournaments such as the Australian Open. The Legends is the better of the two courses with far more visual appeal and laid out on much more engaging terrain. The varied landscape and sand dunes combine with memorable hole designs to create a final product that makes the Legends one of the best public courses Down Under. The opening hole sets the tone early with an impressive downhill tee shot before the fairway ascends uphill to the challenging green site while the 16th hole boasts the largest green in the Southern Hemisphere. Players are given the option of walking or riding in a cart, so if you play 36 holes you may elect to walk in the morning and take a ride in the afternoon. While the private courses around Melbourne get all the hype, making a trip down to the Mornington Peninsula to access great public tracks is well worth it.
