Review – Strathallan Golf Course

Number of holes: 9
Motorised Carts: No
19th Hole: No
Cost: 9 or 18 — $13


Please note: The course is often closed to the public for parts of the day when they have comps for their members. On the weekends it’s members only until 3 p.m.

Strathallan Golf Club is in the middle of suburbia yet has the feel of a country club. The members are friendly & the course has lot of holes bounded by parkland so sometimes you can be forgiven for forgetting where you are.

There are only nine holes at Strathallan but the most holes have an alternative tee placement if you are playing 18.

One of the standout holes of the course is the par 3 2nd/11th. At 122 meters it is doesn’t sound all that imposing but throw a 30 foot high Gum tree in the middle of the fairway & it makes things a little more interesting. One problem with this hole is that tee area for the 2nd hole is a little confusion for the first time player. There is a new planting of trees which run directly in the path of the green leaving the inexperienced player unsure of where the green is.

The course isn’t a long one, the longest hole is 360 meters, but it is a pleasant one. The view of the city from the 6th/15th green is a beautiful. The first time I played the course it was blowing a gale & there is little shelter around the course, which leaves your ball at the mercy of the wind on most holes. Yet this adds another dimension to the course, one which I will be playing again in the near future.
