The golfing playground that is the National at Cape Schanck is one of the premier golfing locations on the Mornington Peninsula, some 1.5 hours south of the Melbourne CBD. The property includes the Moonah, Gunnamatta and Old Courses. The Moonah course represented my first introduction to Victorian golf.
This Norman and Harrison creation is routed over tumbling topography while the sand based ground is ideal for golf. There is ample room off the tee to accommodate the slightly errant, while the scale and undulation of some of the putting surfaces is truly breathtaking.
This is one for the big dune junkies out there, if you are playing the new courses at Peninsula Kingswood or the millionaires club at Frankston you should definitely make a visit to the Moonah and Doak designed Gunnamatta courses.
