If the phrase ‘horses for courses’ rang true, the equine
species would soon take over all golfing greens, removing the need for electric
carts and creating sore behinds en mass. Thank the golf gods they haven’t
and enjoy a more comfortable mode of course transport with today’s Groupon: $119
for 18 holes of golf for two people on the championship course, including cart,
two buckets of practise range balls and more at The Dunes Golf Link, Rye ($298
The glorious, rolling fairways set on 150 hectares of coastal sand hills on the Mornington Penninsula makes The Dunes Golf Links the ideal destination for golf-loving Groupie pairs. The 18-hole championship course captures the raw natural beauty of the terrain, which challenges patrons with its undulating knolls and ridges. Cart hire is included as an effective mode of transport. Golfers also receive two buckets of practise range balls before tee-off to perfect their best pro swings and two course guides to prevent the need for search parties. For putters planning a second visit, enticement in the form of a complimentary cart each seals the deal.
This charming, rippling course boasts tricky hills, ridges and expansive greens. The natural bunkering and native grasses provide stellar opportunities to play random games of hide and seek. Re-designed by renowned golf course architect, Tony Cashmore, a round on The Dunes Golf Links is the ideal day out.
