Settlers Run Golf & Country Club boasts a Greg Norman-designed championship 18 hole golf course that has seen Greg Norman take the best elements of Melbourne’s renowned sandbelt courses and incorporate them into a dramatic, natural golf setting just 45 minutes south-east of the Melbourne CBD.
The design of the 18-hole championship course takes advantage of the undulating landscape and natural wetlands to create a layout that fits seamlessly with the surrounding environment.
The bunkering is a key feature of the design, with Greg Norman taking inspiration from Alister MacKenzie’s work at Royal Melbourne and Kingston Heath.
The fairways have been designed to provide generous landing areas to accommodate golfers of all levels.
Couch grasses have been used on the tees and fairways, with the greens using a hybrid bent grass to provide a putting surface that will be among the finest in Australia.
Numerous vantage points around the course provide spectacular views back to the Melbourne CBD skyline reinforcing Settlers Run’s key attributes of providing a totally “natural” golfing experience so close to the city.
Incorporating natural vegetation into the course was a key priority and Settlers Run entered into an agreement with the adjacent Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne to provide seeds and plantings for course landscaping.
The course lies on a sand base providing excellent course drainage and combined with the agronomic expertise of Troon Golf will ensure that members and their guests play a course that is presented at tournament standard – seven days a week.
Settlers Run Golf & Country Club offers members and guests a range of world-class facilities including a community village incorporating a luxury clubhouse, gymnasium, tennis courts, swimming pool, golf shop and bar/bistro in addition to the Greg Norman design 18 hole championship golf course.
