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.

Challenging Links Style Course

I am a member at Mandalay and play it at least twice per week. It is a great Peter Thompson layout with wide fairways, large greens and lots of bunkers. It is very challenging and needs good control for a low score. The difficulty is reflected in the fact that it has a 132 slope rating. A great course to play. Highly recommended.

Nice Course

We played Mandalay for the 1st time last Sunday. The course was in lovely condition and it was great value at $27 AUD per round.

In terms of the course design , the course is long by Australian Standards with wide Fairways and large greens. The geography is fairly flat, and some of the holes seem to blend into each other (we had difficulty remembering specific holes after the round as many of the par 4's are very similar).

If you can get a good deal on the price, it's definitely worthwhile taking the drive from Melbourne for a look.

Awesome Course

I have played Mandalay many times. After playing here, why would you play anywhere else in Melbourne's north???
Course is in magnificent condition: generous lush couch fairways and large fast true greens with challenging bunkering to negotiate.
The wind is often a factor, and the way the course plays can change dramatically depending on its direction. The back to back par 5's (16th & 17th) are a good example, where one is often reachable in 2 but the other will play very long.
Good mix of long and short par 4's. The short 5th is real risk/reward stuff, with a nasty 2-tiered green.
The set of par 3's are as challenging as you will play anywhere!
Nice modern clubhouse / cafe / restaurant with friendly service, great food and multiple beers on tap.
Great course and great value for money. A "must play"!!!

This course is in great condition

This course is fairly young in age but it is a very challenging course. The fairways are ample in size and in great condition. Most of the greens have bunkers protecting them and you need to think about how you are going to attack each hole. The course is very open at the moment with only young trees offering little protection from the wind. The wind also plays a big part in getting around this course, club selection is important when the wind is strong when I played. The course it self is being well maintained by the maintenance staff, the fairways and greens look fantastic. The greens are fairly hard and good in size. The fairways are wide however you need to keep the ball in the fairways as the rough can be challenging to get out of.
This is a great course which I enjoy playing I hope you will to.
