Golf Australia Express : GA Express 256
SPOTLIGHT A Pure Thomson Mix WORDS & PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRENDAN JAMES SANDHURST CLUB Sandhurst, VIC F OR the avid golfer, Melbourne’s south-eastern suburbs might best be described as paradise. From the world-famous Sandbelt layouts to the spectacular fairways of the Mornington Peninsula, the region has a plethora of outstanding courses seemingly at every turn. One of the impressive additions to the eastern edge of the Sandbelt is the Sandhurst Club – a 36-hole complex just a 35-minute drive from the CBD – that has become the hub of a master-planned residential community, as well as a world class training facility and home to the PGA of Australia. The Peter Thomson and Ross Perrett- designed layouts – known as the North and Champions courses – have continued to evolve as fine challenges for players of all abilities. With five-time Open champion Thomson having such strong ties and a love of golf in Scotland it should not come as a surprise that a course bearing his name might, in some part, pay homage to the great links of the Home of Golf. The North course does just that.
