OTHER ACTIVITIES: Spa and Wellness centre; fine dining; close to local surf beach. ___ _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ _ CONTACT: (03) 5264 3333 WEB: thesandstorquay.com As is now commonplace among many of the courses in this golfing mecca, The Sands gives you a host of reasons to make it your destination for an entire weekend, and for you to never find cause to leave its environs for the duration of your stay. There’s on-course accommodation at Peppers The Sands Resort, which comes with all the indulgences you’d expect of a 4.5-star ‘stay and play’ destination, including a seasonal spa and wellness centre, a private health club, in- room massages and an indoor lap pool. Post-round, we enjoyed a quiet on-course dining experience at Hanners Bar and Restaurant, which features a selection of European and Asian fusion cuisine, not to mention those same views you just enjoyed for 18 holes. But ultimately you’re there for the golf, and The Sands certainly delivers on that score. A tough test no doubt – especially when the wind is up – but a genuinely enjoyable track on which to play. It may not be the most renowned course in Victoria’s crowded golfing market, but as a sporting challenge – and a gorgeous one at that – it’s hard to beat. OTG THE SANDS TORQUAY FACT FILE
