Water Features

While the tee boxes are well maintained and look the part, that’s unfortunately where it ends.
The rest of the course felt like it was built on a swamp. It had rained the night before, but by 3pm the following day nothing was dry. Every fairway was muddy, with little sign of grass. The bunkers had turned into water hazards.
Pace of play was also very slow taking more than 4hrs to complete the round.
Perhaps a course that may play well in summer months?

Windy day. Course in reasonable condition

Apart from some slow players in front who obviously didn't understand many etiquette requirements & recent coring of the greens that meant slow pace & some soil spreading, the course was in good condition. Playing windy conditions but was not a huge impact on length.

Great game

Great day. Would have just been nice to have been told the greens had been cored. We would have changed our itinerary around a little bit.

Thommo design in Dry Northern Melbourne

Shades of Moonah Links open course here in this course in the dry, barren Northern lands of Melbourne.

Weaving through the Mandalay housing estate is the very nice and playable Club Mandalay. On this summer day the course played hard, fast and true. Greens are hard and smooth, and the fairways rock hard.

There are definite Similarities with Thommos other course - Moonah Open, with similar style bunkers and wide open fairways. The par 3s are well bunkered and challenging.

Could be muddy in winter which I heard is a little bit of an issue.

Nice club with bar and proshop. Hitting nets and practice putting green near pro shop

Well Worth It

Excellent golf course. Played it three weeks ago and it was baked. They have received rain since and course greened up beautifully. Greens a bit slow but manageable. Would definitely play again and recommend it.

Great course

We played this course today for the first time. It was surprisingly quick to get from Port Melbourne to the course. The clubhouse is terrific. The course is in great condition. The greens and fairways were perfect and the club had placed ice water around the course. This was really appreciated as it was a very hot day. All in all a great course to give a try.

Great course and not too far from Melbourne

On the map, Mandalay looks to be a fair way to go, but it takes about 45 minutes. The drive is worth it - great course, tough if you spray one wide and with consistent greens. The staff are nice and there are a few amenities for a hot day. Highly recommended.

Good Course for the short Drive to Beverage

The friending staff member got us underway and humid conditions,

The course was in very good shape, well looked after.

However the only downer was a Marshall was needed to move on a slow group of seniors.

My favorite course by a country mile.

Good fairways, great bunkers and fantastic greens. Open links style course thats been built right. Whether its been hit by a deluge of heavy rain or playing after a run of consecutive hot days, the course holds up really well. Well drained and well looked after.

Walking is not impossible but distance from some greens to next tees are fairly long, though being built in and around a housing estate, you get that.

I love it and for $35 inc cart after 2pm, thats very cheap for a course of this caliber.
