The National Golf Club is a 54 hole private members’ golf club, providing three distinct golfing challenges (Old Course, Moonah Course and Ocean Course). The three courses have been designed by 3 of the world’s leading golf architects – Greg Norman, Robert Trent Jones Jr and Peter Thomson. As such the 3 courses, although located very closely to one another, offer the golfer a range of golfing experiences.
The Old course at The National is a very enjoyable test of golf….if you are hitting the ball straight, if the wind is not blowing and if you are putting well.
The Moonah Course is set amongst large rolling sand dunes some two thousand meters from the Pacific Ocean. Other than the distinctive gnarled Moonah trees, which dot the landscape, it is a pure dunesland setting.
The Ocean, a classic links course is no exception and many of the green surrounds also are framed by this style of bunker. The course is a gentler test than the Moonah with a number of short par 4’s but still has its fair share of tougher holes.
