Waterford Valley is a brand-new par 72, 6545 m unique championship golf course which has been designed with flexibility in its layout. It provides a wide range of golfing challenges, as it can be set up to play from 5600 m to 6545 m, depending on who’s playing and the direction of the prevailing winds.
Being only 30 minutes from the CBD, the venue provides an efficient and enjoyable corporate environment. Melbourne’s newest championship golf course has been designed with corporate golf in mind whereby it is a serious challenge for lower markers and plays friendly for social golfers.
The undulating fairways of Santa Ana Couch which are fully irrigated, provide wide landing zones so the golfer can “ have a go ” off the tee, however in doing so would need to negotiate the 63 bunkers and 11 lakes and wetlands. There are 4 varying degrees of difficulty which are depicted by the various colour tees and depending on the prevailing winds the bailout options are designed to provide the not too proud golfer an easy way home.
The 63 bunkers are huge in size and are strategically placed. The “Bent G2” grass greens are bigger than traditional golf course greens and they provide the golfer with an opportunity to get home in regulation, however long well thought out putts are then often required.
