The Royal Automobile Club of Victoria operates a number of resorts in the states of Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania, many of them with golf courses as amenities for members of the motoring organization who visit the various destinations.
Located just a 90-minute drive from Melbourne, the golf course at Torquay RACV occupies a prime coastal position beside Jan Juc Beach, featuring wide-open couch fairways, fescue rough, wetland areas and fantastic ocean views.
The round gets off to a flier, with a great chance for birdie on the short par five opening hole as it swings left towards Spring Creek. Two greens are sited next to the beach on the front nine, at the demanding par five 4th and tough par four 6th.
On the back nine, nearly all the holes are oriented in a north-south direction (as they are on the outward half), routed either towards the coastline or away from it. The exception to this is the short par three 17th which plays along the strand, facing towards Rocky Point Lookout.
