Edge of civilization

Mandalay is on the outer edge of Melbourne's urban sprawl.It's flat rocky terrain.
This was possibly Peter Thomson's last design.It's longish with plenty of bunkers.Can have variable conditions over Winter but was in very good shape when I played it.
Winds in & out of a housing estate & generally good quality with a few up & downs on the back 9.
Is vulnerable to wind given its location.
You can usually pick up a bargain green fee & the clubhouse facilities are first class

Excellent course

Excellent all round test of golf. Alot of bunkers and large greens make it challenging at times. Rough not too deep. Greens medium pace but slope a bit and are undulating so fairly difficult.

Enjoyed the course

Looked forward to playing this course after reading reviews and friends appraisals and even though the weather wasnt ideal the course itself was pretty good.
Would recommend this course for its price and layout but not its customer service.Was greeted with an over zealous started at reception who didnt take to kindly to be not wearing a collared ‘footjoy raincoat’..had a collared shirt underneath,it was raining or drizzling but he didnt want to know..Contemplated just getting back in the car!!Other than that..didnt mind it

Great course for a great price

One of the better courses I've played on and green fees were around half of that for the more premium golf courses. Green fees also included a golf cart between me and my mate which is great value.
I found the course really difficult as I found myself being punished with difficult lies every time I missed a fairway. Greens were quite easy to read and play and the bunkers were great to hit out of.
I would not recommend to a beginner golfer but would recommend for anyone else.

Great booking

The booking system and course were both great. Golfnow provides a very simple process to book.
I have however been charged twice with the /me purchase pending for more than 4 days so am hopeful I hear back from Golfnow regarding this and have the funds returned in a timely manner.

Hot day but worth it

It was 37 degrees on the day but had a breeze that made play bearable -

The course is the favourite of many in the club - not mission impossible but not an easy course. -

Great design and most hole offer a challenge and each hole has it’s unique challenge

Good amenanties - staff were great in the pro shop and the bar area. - very comfortable .

Fairways a bit moist

Course was in as good as condition as you can expect for a clay based course in July in the middle of a Melbourne winter. Carts were banned, and most fairways were 50% water logged, Meaning casual water, or preferred lies, but struggling to find suitable drop areas. Much better course in drier conditions, Will wait until mid spring before a return. Green designs are also a bit repetitive, 45 degree angle, left to right, with a bunker middle front right. Also that 15th Hole needs to be fixed/remade, Its to long for a Par 3 with that green design, with no bail out area
