The National Golf Course at Cape Schanck has long been recognised as one of the most spectacular courses in the country, and when new land was acquired nearby back in 1996 to build two links style courses it looked every bit as good.

The National Moonah Golf Club
The Moonah Course is set amongst large rolling sand dunes some two thousand meters from the Pacific Ocean. Other than the distinctive gnarled Moonah trees, which dot the landscape, it is a pure dunesland setting. However, the large scale of the dunes means broad slopes and forced carries, never an ideal situation for any architect. Furthermore, the wind blows equally strong from the northeast in the winter and the southwest in the summer. Designing a course with both extreme terrain and weather considerations is never easy, yet everyone associated with the project felt that there was indeed an inspiring course buried somewhere amongst this 250 acres of rolling dunes. The key was just to find.
The National Ocean Golf Club
The Ocean course at the National was opened for play in 2000 along with its more illustrious neighbour the Moonah course. These two courses join the original Old course and the newly acquired Long Island making up one of the best complexes not only in Australia but in world golf. The Ocean course was designed by Peter Thomson, Ross Perrett and Michael Wolveridge amongst sand dunes and boasts breathtaking views of the Bass Strait and the Mornington Peninsula. Some say the course occupies the best piece of golf real estate among the National stable of courses yet it’s often is derided as inferior to the Old and Moonah courses. Tom Doak has been enlisted to re-imagine the routing for a number of holes on the course.
The National Old Course
The original National course (Old Course) was open for play in 1988 and was designed by leading golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Jnr. Trent Jones Jnr recently visited The National to look back on his creation and how it has improved over time. This course is a generally hilly course combining amazing coastal views, challenging ball carries and slick, undulating putting surfaces into a test of golf not previously seen in Australia.
