Those that journey down to King Island for a few days or more may be tempted to play the King Island Golf & Bowling Club.
The nine hole course has been sited in classic rolling linksland near Currie, and has been promoted in some circles as being possibly the best nine hole course in the world.
Although I don't quite rate it in such august company, it would certainly provide an ideal warm up to the main event- playing the two new courses.
King Island Golf & Bowling Club is a traditional links course, with natural fescue turf, and rolling terrain
With the ever present wind a factor, it has a real Scottish feel..
Notable holes include:
- the short semi blind par 4 opening hole
- the picturesque par 3 third hole with ocean backdrop
- the short par 4 fifth hole which doglegs around the beach but tempts the longer hitter to take the shortcut over the water
These trips can also be added to our tours of the Melbourne Sandbelt.
