Moonah Links (Legends Course) is a resort golf course offering a wide range of playing times 7 days per week. Contact either Moonah Links (Legends Course) or GOLFSelect for more information.

Moonah Links Legends Course opened for play in Nov 2003. It is a very different layout to the Open Course, blending undulating fairways that wind through ancient Moonah forests with pure sweeping links country.

With panoramic views from raised tees, shared greens and a host of other unique features this course will fast become a must play for all serious golfers.

In contrast to the Open Course which was purpose built to challenge the modern champion, the Legends Course is a more friendly golfing experience for players of all ages and abilities.

The course is a loop of 18 holes that generally follow the valleys through a variety of landscapes ranging from ancient Moonah woodlands to open links land.

The fairways are generous and the putting surfaces gentle, but the bunkering style is bold and wild in appearance.

At 6,315 metres, the course is fun but not a pushover.

The Legends Course does justice to the champions it honours and will inspire others to emulate their feats.

It recently debuted in the top 30 courses in Australia by Golf Australia.

Course Playing Tips

Hole 1, Par 5 (487 m)
A reachable in 2 par five that entices the longer hitters to take on the corner, a carry of over 200 meters. A raised green will punish the short approach with a fast green sloping from left to right.

Hole 2, Par 4 (304 m)
A short par 4 best played conservatively. A wayward drive can easily find trouble on both sides. A straight drive will leave a short iron to the raised green.

Hole 3, Par 3 (162 m)
Ensure you have enough clubs to avoid the sandy wasteland below. This hole often plays straight into the wind so good club selection is essential.

Hole 4, Par 4 (340 m)
The most exciting tee shot on the peninsula, hitting out onto a fairway some 40 meters below. A tee shot to the corner will allow

Hole 5, Par 3 (154 m)
A medium length par 3 can be deceiving in length, playing longer that initially thought. With trouble on both sides an accurate tee shot is required; anything short of the green will encounter difficulty.

Hole 6, Par 5 (501 m)
After a tee shot to the corner the hole veers to the left. Longer hitters can attack the large double green which is easily reachable in two. Shorter players can lay up short and have a easy approach to the green.

Hole 7, Par 4 (362 m)
Looking more formidable than actually is, the drive over the bunkers into the valley positions for the best approach. A two teared green makes for difficult putting.

Hole 8, Par 4 (414 m)
A tough driving hole with bunkers impeding from both sides. Again with a double teared green making putting difficult.

Hole 9, Par 5 (495 m)
A long hole that can be troublesome when the wind strengthens, with trouble down both sides of the fairway. The second shot is best left 50 to 60 meters short of the green. The large green is also tough as there is trouble behind.

Hole 10, Par 3 (177 m)
A seemingly easy par three can be challenging with club selection. The amount of wind plays a crucial factor in club selection.

Hole 11, Par 4 (272 m)
A short par four reachable for the long hitters. With trouble down the right side the percentage play is to lay up with long iron to allow for easy approach to a relatively flat green.

Hole 12, Par 5 (491 m)
A challenging hole with a blind green. Longer hitters can easily reach the green in two. The green feeds from the down slope of the fairway. The green is fairly large and has a few undulations.

Hole 13, Par 4 (420 m)
The hardest hole on the course requires a blind tee shot followed by a long second into a green decorated by the surrounding sand dune. Club selection is essential or can make for extremely long putts.

Hole 14, Par 4 (413 m)
Another strong par four with the tough shot being the approach, anything to the right can encounter trouble. A double teared green again makes putting challenging.

Hole 15, Par 4 (353 m)
A unique par four that requires much thought, usually an iron tee shot to the corner allows for a mid iron approach to a raised green.

Hole 16, Par 3 (185 m)
The largest green in the southern hemisphere, the hole is dictated by pin position.

Hole 17, Par 4 (380 m)
A tee shot down the right side will feed into the ideal approach position. A raised green with bunkers on bother sides demands a precise approach.

Hole 18, Par 4 (405 m)
A wide fairway allows for an easy tee shot, strategically placed fairway bunkers may cause some trouble. A mid to long iron approach into a green that slopes from left to right sets up for the perfect finish.
