Port Fairy Golf Club

To our few non-golfing readers, I’m sure it must seem rather sad that some people can get so excited about where and when they play golf. But we must tell you about the Port Fairy Golf Course. I was initially attracted by a description in a magazine. It said it was ‘consistently rated highly in the list of top public courses in Australia. But hit straight, or bring a snorkel!’ Many of the holes are set in the sand dunes overlooking the ocean.It’s not a fancy place; the green fees are $28 for 18 holes. But it is one of the most dramatic golfing experiences we have ever enjoyed. Some of the holes compare favourably to those found at the magnificent ocean courses in Hawaii, or, closer to home, the 14th hole at Furry Creek. I am including a few photos, (although they don’t do the course justice) in the hope that you will check it out, if you are in the area.
