A definite improvement on the Ocean course. I played this new course as a guest and thoroughly enjoyed it - because its now enjoyable. Plenty of traditional links golf on an undulatng property but now the greens are not so penal and the layout is friendlier. More short par 4s make it fun for mid handicappers and I think Tom Doak has given golfers a better chance of admiring the views out to Bass Strait! Even the gentle (!) sea breeze was not too difficult to handle. And of course the National Club House is brilliant for a post-round cleansing ale.
