Warrnambool is a very under-rated course. It has arguably the best string of short or shortish par four holes from the third to the eight inclusive. The conditioning in early November 2019 was first class.
Aside from the glorious par fours, it has a very demanding par five tenth, over 500m uphill and into the wind. There are two steep uphill par threes, where the challenge is the picking of the correct club.
There are many elevation changes among the huge dunes. With the wind frequently providing difficulties, it is a layout better or far better than many of the courses listed well above it, including its near neighbour, Port Fairy.
I disagree strongly with Scarlett who suggested some holes blend in with others.
The annual Shipwreck Coast tw-day event in November is an excellent reason to visit.
