Glen Waverley

Glen Waverly public is a nice golf course. Nothing special but a nice course to play & very reasonable priced. When we played the fairways were nice & lush & the greens were in pretty good nick. The pace of the greens was a little bit had to judge, some greens were faster than others, but after the rain on the previous two days it’s a bit hard to determine what is the course & what is the weather. It is quite a short course at 5136 metres. There is only the one par 5 & that is the 6th. On the back nine there are no par 5’s. There are three par 3’s are that rest are all par 4’s.

You’ll notice when you play Glen Waverley that there are a lot of doglegs. It starts with the first hole which is a par 4 dogleg right & followed up by a another par 4 that doglegs left.

There aren’t any holes that are what you would call signature hole here. There are a couple of nice looking holes, the first of which is the par 4 5th. The fairway has a pretty narrow opening of the tee, it then opens up with a dogleg left to a green that slopes quite steeply back towards the front.

The 11th is another nice looking hole. A 332 meter par 4 with a dogleg right. Play the ball down the left hand side of the fairway & you’ll have an easy shot into the green..

When you complete the 11th you have to walk down the edge of the fairway of the par 3 12th. Depending on who is on the tee this could be quite dangerous.

The 14th is probably one of the biggest doglegs that I have played in along time. When you walking the bend it feels like it is going to come back it self.

The clubhouse at Glen Waverly is probably one of it’s best assets. There are a number of tables around & a BBQ. The clubhouse seels beer & bottled mixed drinks (you can’t take them out on the course though) making it a great place to finish the round if you are playing with a large group.

In closing, Glen Waverley is a nice course but I would go out of my way to play here.
