Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 342m

Elevated tees provide an inviting opening hole. With a hazard right and bunker left a well positioned tee shot allows an easier approach to a small two-tier green.

2
Par 4, Length 357m

Fairway bunkers guard left side of this fairway. A precise approach from the fairway is a necessity to this elevated green. Advanced golfers may attack but safety is to the front left portion of the green.

3
Par 3, Length 180m

Accuracy and the correct club selection makes this a strong par three. With a large putting surface a generous run-up to the middle/left of this green provides some relief from the right hazard and bunkers that surround.

4
Par 4, Length 304m

A deceptive hole with course knowledge making this a real birdie chance. Position safe to the left of the large fairway bunker or longer hitter straight over at the green. The small fast sloping green is tilted from left to right.

5
Par 5, Length 496m

The first of the great par 5's on this course. All emphasis is placed on hitting this fairway. With a hazard left and a bunker right, place your drive in the fairway and second shot within short iron distance to the green. Club selection needs to be precise with approach to this deep green.

6
Par 4, Length 394m

A long par four with plenty of options. Drive short of the bunker in the middle of the fairway or take it on. Right side of this fairway provides the biggest advantage. Shorter hitters watch your second shot as water weaves in front of the green.

7
Par 3, Length 123m

Simple in theory but though to execute! This short par 3 sets a tricky challenge for all level of golfers. Favour the front of this green with a sever drop off long.

8
Par 5, Length 481m

The hole that all golfers talk about. Hit tee shot straight at the three bunkers in the distance, longer hitters just left. Work out how far you want for your third or become a hero and fire your second at the green. There is more room left of this green than it looks.

9
Par 4, Length 384m

A strong hole with a par being a good score. Tee shot to the right side of the fairway will leave a long up hill shot to a deep two-tier puttiong surface. Avoid the two bunkers right of this green and two putts to finish this hole is a good result.

10
Par 5, Length 492m

Precision is a necessity on this visually spectacular par 5. A tough driving and lay-up hole with a hazard down the right side. Room right of this green provides some relief and a definite birdie chance if you stay dry!

11
Par 4, Length 369m

This hole will test all level of golfers. The longer you hit, the tighter this fairway becomes. A tough second to this small sloping left to right green makes for a great risk reward hole.

12
Par 3, Length 150m

With a green surrounded by bunkers a high flighted shot is required. The subtle tier in this green provides a great putting surface for making a birdie or saving your par. You will be tested from this point in so enjoy this short hole.

13
Par 5, Length 511m

The longest of the par 5's starts with pleasure and ends with torment. Many options are presented with your lay-up and approach to this hole guarded by hazards. Take note of water yardage carries and bunker placements to navigate your way down this hole.

14
Par 4, Length 325m

Visually a very tough short par 4. This fairway is wide before the first of the right side bunkers. Longer hitters have a narrowing landing area. Play it safe or take this hole on and be rewarded. Precision down this entire hole is a must.

15
Par 4, Length 279m

A tempting hole for the longer hitters. Take the driver and fire straight at the green but that's where the danger is. This semi island green is guarded by water. With many options it's short but suits the disciplined player.

16
Par 3, Length 158m

Normally playing towards a northerly wind this par 3 can play long with a water carry required to get on the left side of this green. The centre of this green feeds left helping to soften this hole. Lots of room short right provides some relief.

17
Par 4, Length 375m

With no water guarding either side of this fairway the only question needed answering is what line to take with longer hitters over the right side bunker. This deep green requires precision to provide a short birdie chance.

18
Par 4, Length 360m

A tough par 4 requiring distance and accuracy. Avoidboth hazard and bunkers with your tee shot and face mid-long iron up the hill. This two tier green has a false front right edge but is also a good area leaving a simple approach.

19
Par 4, Length 343m

This mid length par 4 is best attacked with precision. A long iron or fairway wood to the left side of this fairway is best suited. A large putting surface awaits with bunkers guarding the front right of this green.

20
Par 4, Length 315m

An elevated green with bunkers and collection areas make this a tough target to hit. Best approach with a short iron or pitch shot. Avoid the scattered fairway bunkers off the tee and a birdie is a real chance.

21
Par 4, Length 399m

With stunning views this down hill par 4 provides a stern test. Drive long and straight towards the right side bunker, this fairway will feed your ball left. The left greenside bunker and collection area in front of this green make for a deceptive approach.

22
Par 3, Length 121m

All that can be seen is bunkers on this, the shortest of the par 3's. This green is rather undulating from back to front. A fantastic short par 3.

23
Par 5, Length 474m

An elevated first half of this hole feeds down to a well guarded lay-up and approach area. Tee shot should be directed towards the right side of the fairway with a sever drop off left. Attack with caution and be rewarded.

24
Par 4, Length 310m

With a hazard right and bunkers left a well positioned tee shot is required to tackle the large putting surface with a short approach shot. This is an inviting birdie chance.

25
Par 3, Length 151m

Precision is needed with a well guarded green of bunkers, collection areas and a right side hazard. This two-tier green that slops towards the hazard provides some assistance in finding a right side pin position.

26
Par 4, Length 406m

With an index of number 1 on this golf course a tough test awaits. This fairway needs to be found with hazard left and bunkers right. Water feeds in front of this sloping back to front green. Par on this hole is a great result.

27
Par 5, Length 486m

This climbing par 5 is covered with scattered bunkers the entire way up the fairway. Avoid these and the best angle of approach is from the right to a fantastic small two tier green.

Length (m):
Architect: Mike Clayton
Design Year: 2010 (New design)
Top 100: 82

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 328m

The shot to the corner is straightforward - a long iron or fairway wood for most - but the approach to the green plays longer than you think so take an extra club.

2
Par 3, Length 134m

One of the smallest and flattest greens on the course, a well struck iron to the middle will leave a good chance of birdie. Much like the first hole, best to play an extra club.

3
Par 4, Length 335m

The slope of the fairway pushes most drives away to the right so hug the flatter, left half. The bunkerless green may look easy from the fairway, but looks can be deceiving.

4
Par 3, Length 176m

A tier running through the middle of the green divides the putting surface into a lower left and upper right section. Try and be on the half where the pin is.

5
Par 4, Length 351m

Any drive short of the hill leaves a blind second. Aim further right for the approach than you think and allow the slopes to feed the ball around the flag.

6
Par 4, Length 302m

Drive as close as you can to the right side of the fairway to leave an easier approach up the green and away from the bunker which eats-up any ball running near.

7
Par 4, Length 348m

The bunker short of the green does a good job of making the approach shorter than it is but the green is large and long and needs more club than you think.

8
Par 5, Length 423m

The green is one of the most undulating and fearsome on the course - approachwith caution. If the pin is near the creek, approach from well to the left.

9
Par 4, Length 287m

The fairway slope will push anything but the best tee shot away to the right, leaving the more difficult angle into the green.

10
Par 3, Length 130m

More often than not it's best to play at the middle of the green and take par, rather than flirt with any of the cavernous bunkers and risk ruining the day.

11
Par 163, Length 3m

The slope around this green feeds any shot landing short away to the right. The best line is usually a touch to the left of the centre - over the edge of the bunker short of the green.

12
Par 265, Length 4m

The sensible play here is an iron to the bottom of the hill. If the pin is on the left, play short of the big bunker, when the pin is on the right, keep to the left.

13
Par 141, Length 3m

The big bunker short of the green makes the shot seem a little shorter (and scarier) than it actually is, and being uphill also makes it play a touch longer.

14
Par 341, Length 4m

There's a slight advantage to those who can keep the ball to the right if the pin is tucked on the left side of the green, and vice versa if the pin is on the right.

15
Par 421, Length 5m

The further left you can hit your tee shot the better the angle up this green. Many will be able to try for the green in two, but if laying up play as close to the creek as you can.

16
Par 125, Length 3m

For most this is only a oitch or short iron, but the deep creek in front and bunkers beyond give this little shot plenty of teeth - aim for the middle!

17
Par 298, Length 4m

The tee shot looks imposing but the fairway is wide so hot freely. The green is a different story - another boldly contoured putting surface sloping off at the front, right and rear.

18
Par 304, Length 4m

This horseshoe green will be one of the most talked about on the course. The key to the approach is to position yourself on the same side of the fairway as the pin.

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 357m

A mid length par 4 to start where the tee shot needs to be placed in between two bunkers to leave a good angle into a gently contoured green. The big hitter is better placed with a fairway wood off the tee, as the fairway runs out at around 240 metres.

2
Par 5, Length 472m

The best shot is played down the left side of this long hole. The key is to avoid the pond that guards the right part of the green, and staying out of the bunkers that stretch along the left. Make sure to avoid the back bunkers if the pin is front left, as a miscued bunker shot could find a watery grave. Making par on this hole is a good score.

3
Par 4, Length 300m

Although distance off the tee can be an advantage on this hole, accuracy is the key to a par or birdie. Water stretches along the left of the hole and a bunker protects the front right portion of the green. Hitting the green may seem easy but an undulating green awaits.

4
Par 3, Length 172m

A long iron or fairway wood is required to reach this green. Any prevailing wind will see the ball be pushed from right to left towards the water and be aware that a bunker protects the right part of the green. A tough par 3.

5
Par 4, Length 369m

A premium is placed on an accurate tee shot on this hole. A bunker protects the right and water on the left. Coupled with an undulating fairway the player will be happy just to be on the cut surface. Be sure to take an extra club or two when hitting to the green to compensate for the uphill green.

6
Par 5, Length 502m

A hole of choices, do you go left, right, or over the dead tree that guards the opening of the fairway? Once on the fairway do I lay up or risk getting close to the green that is protected by bunkers? A great par 5 hole.

7
Par 4, Length 383m

Long Par 4, dog leg around to the right, slightly downhill. The best line is to just miss the bunkers on the right as the ball will bounce down to level ground leaving a mid iron approach to a tough green.

8
Par 3, Length 122m

A great little par 3! Short, no bunkers, but birdie is not a given. A hump stands in front of the green to make the hole look longer than the yardage suggests. Once on the green its time to navigate around a gently contoured green.

9
Par 4, Length 410m

Number 1 rated hole on the course. Fairway runs out at about 235m then leaving a long iron or fairway wood to a big green. The lay up area on the second shot is out to the left.

10
Par 4, Length 374m

A good start to the second nine with a dog leg to the right, up and over a hill, leaving a downhill second shot into a contoured green.

11
Par 4, Length 314m

The line on this hole is straight towards the half way house. You need to be straight and long enough past the trees on the left to give yourself a good look at this green. Strategically placed bunkers around the green make this a really classic hole.

12
Par 3, Length 157m

Tough par 3. Slightly uphill into a big green. A false front and nothing behind the green make this a hard hole to judge. Trust your yardage and play for the right centre of the green.

13
Par 5, Length 498m

A great par 5 that runs up through the Valley. Position your drive as close to the left bunkers as to leave a long second towards the green. Avoid the large tree on the left which leaves you a simple pitch into a huge green. Watch for the pin placement as it can play longer with a back pin placement.

14
Par 4, Length 362m

Dog leg left, avoiding the bunkers on the left leaves a mid iron approach into a well contoured green. Driving through the fairway will see you needing to avoid a large tree on the right.

15
Par 3, Length 142m

A short par 3 across water with a bunker at the back. If the pin is tucked to the left, the safe option is to just play for the middle of the green.

16
Par 4, Length 468m

A long par 4 straight down hill. Avoid going right as you may not find your ball again! Second shot will play shorter as it is still downhill into a big green.

17
Par 5, Length 528m

A real long 3-shot par 5. Once your in the fairway you have to then decide where to lay up. Left is the best option to avoid the bunkers and water on the right. Beware as a large bunker protects the opening of the green.

18
Par 4, Length 410m

A long par 4 to finish your round. Dog leg right over a crest into a heavily guarded green. Par here to finish and you will be happy!

The Heritage Golf and Country Club is a vision which has been a long time in the making. Located in the spectacular Yarra Valley (a prime Victorian wine district) The Heritage is a Jack Nicklaus Signature designed golf course which meanders its way through gently rolling hills and carefully placed water hazards.

The St.John course is a par 72 course which will have you using every club in your bag. With an ACR of 74 off the Gold tee, this beautifully constructed par 72 course challenges at every turn with excellent water features and strategically placed slopes, mounds and traps.

Jack Nicklaus, arguably the most influential player in golfing history, has drawn on all his experience in designing the St John course - a spectacular parkland course which complements the exquisite beauty of the valley. He has also acted as a Consultant in the development of a second 18 - The Henley, a traditional links style course designed by Tony Cashmore.

Both these courses benefit from an excellent sand base (the result of a massive sand capping process) allowing greenkeepers to grow carpet-like couch fairways with ease. The natural, virtually instantaneous drainage following rainfall allows for uninterrupted play.

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 324m

This short par 4 should help the golfer get off to a quick start, but poor execution could leave the golfer with a bag score to start with. The best play is a driver off the tee, favouring the right half of the fairway. This will leave the best angle into the gently contoured green.

2
Par 4, Length 399m

Although a bold play, the best tee shot on this long par 4 will be played to the right half of the fairway, bringing the water on the right side of the tee shot into play. If successful off the tee, the golfer will find themselves with a shorter shot to the green with a much better angle into the green. The green pitches from left to right.

3
Par 3, Length 169m

This mid-length par 3 favours a variety of shots depending on the pin location. A fade to the green works best when the pin is up front or right center, but the always-difficult high draw is favoured when the pin is in the back section of the green.

4
Par 5, Length 502m

The best shot is played as close to the small pot bunker on the left. The golfer then has the best chance to hit the green in two when playing down wind, or to clear the cross bunkers when playing into the wind. Clearing the cross bunkers on the second shot is required if you are to get a clear view of the putting surface for your third shot.

5
Par 4, Length 400m

A well-struck tee shot, avoiding the bunkers is a must. Not to be outdone by the tee shot, the second shot is one of the most exciting on the golf course. While avoiding the bunker short left of the green, the golfer will have to use the fairway contours to keep the ball out of the collection bunker on the right and onto the putting surface.

6
Par 4, Length 348m

Although distance off the tee is a real advantage, accuracy off the tee is the key to par or birdie on this hole. With bunkers protecting both sides of the fairway, finding any one of them will bring the pond protecting the right side of the green much more into play.

7
Par 3, Length 144m

This long, slightly uphill par 3 demands an accurate, well-struck shot to reach this well bunkered green. Because of the green angle and contours, a draw is the best shape for your shot here.

8
Par 4, Length 393m

An accurate, strong tee shot is needed. The 2nd shot looks tough but can play much easier than it appears if the golfer takes advantage of the contours in the approach and green. These contours strongly slope right to left and help the ball feed towards the center of the green. When the pin is on the left, a ball hit to the center should pick up the elevation change in the middle of the green, and feed to the pin.

9
Par 5, Length 479m

The mid-length par 5 is very reachable in two if a strong drive is struck over the fairway bunker on the left. If successful the ball will reach the elevation change in the fairway, which will feed the ball forward another 10-20 meters. If the golfer achieves this then they will have a good angle to the green, where they have the luxury of being able to hit their second shot short of the green and still have a good chance to bounce the ball on the green. Whether it's the second or third shot to be hit into the green, hitting from as close to the water as possible is a much easier shot because of the angle of the green.

10
Par 4, Length 339m

The golfer may want to hit a fairway wood off this tee to place their drive between the bunkers protecting both sides of the fairway. Water is very much in play on the second shot as it lays in front of the entire green and fairway pad to the right of the green. Precise placement of the second shot is required on this small but contoured green.

11
Par 3, Length 165m

With the green sitting at the base of an old quarry and with water protecting the entire right side of the hole, an accurate mid iron is required on this beautiful par 3. With the green measuring almost 40 meters in length, club selection is critical.

12
Par 5, Length 464m

This downhill tee shot may be the most dramatic tee shot on the golf course. A well placed drive right of the bunkers, but keeping out of the water leaves the golfer the option to reach the green in two. If the golfer can?t reach the green in two, their 2nd shot is best played as close to the water as their nerve allows.

13
Par 4, Length 329m

This short par 4 plays much harder than its length in that it plays up to 15 meters uphill depending on the tee the golfer chooses to play from. A deep bunker protects the right side of the hole for those golfers trying to cut off as much length as possible. Be sure to take an extra club or two when hitting to the green to compensate for how uphill it plays.

14
Par 4, Length 396m

Although there are no bunkers on the tee shot, a good tee shot works best favouring the left side of the fairway. With the green angling and pitching hard from left to right, a fade is best played to the left center part of the green without bringing the deep greenside bunker into play.

15
Par 5, Length 491m

A generous fairway awaits the golfer off the tee. With water protecting the entire left side of the hole and bunkers protecting the right side, placement is critical on this hole. The best angle into the green on the third shot will depend on the location of the pin. Front and left pins are best attacked from the right side of the fairway.

16
Par 4, Length 393m

This long par 4, plays even longer being over 6 meters up-hill. A strong drive avoiding the deep bunker on the left and right of the landing area is needed. With two bunkers left of the green and one right, an accurate long iron or fairway wood is needed to find the green in two.

17
Par 3, Length 171m

A long iron or fairway wood is required to reach the green. Like many of the approaches at The Heritage, strong side pitches in the approach help to feed the ball into the green.

18
Par 4, Length 432m

Off the tee you can hit over the bunkers (to create a shorter approach) or they can play more conservatively off the tee, avoiding the bunkers, but leaving a longer shot with a much more difficult angle to the green. The green is well protected with bunkers, thus demanding both strength and accuracy for the second shot on this difficult, long par 4.

About the Destination

Yarra Valley Location Map

In times past, the Yarra Valley was best known for its famous vineyards. But this is changing as more and more golf courses are appearing on the Yarra Valley map. The jewel in the golfing crown in this region is the The Heritage Golf and Country Club. Located 45 minutes northeast of Melbourne The Heritage is home to two  magnificent 18 hole golf courses (St.John and Henley).

The Heritage St.John course was have been designed by Jack Nicklaus and he has used the moderately undulating land to craft a golf course well rated in golfing circles. The sweeping, lush fairways, white bunkers and numerous water hazards combine to create an aesthetic pleasing and quite challenging golf course.

The 11th hole in particular is one such challenging hole. A moderate length par 3, its main feature is an old quarry wall which frames the hole on the left hand side. The right hand side has a ball catching body of water so the only sensible way to play the hole is to land on the green! Stories abound of golfers coming to this hole and attempting to play safely to the left only to find that their tee shots richocheting off the quarry wall and in to the water on the other side of the green.

The Sebel Lodge Yarra Valley is also located on the site of The Heritage and provides very comfortable 4.5 star accommodation, conference facilities and fine dining. It has also recently opened a complete Day Spa complex to help relax those tired muscles.

A further 20 minutes down the road lies the RACV Country Club at Healesville. This member's only golf club (with limited access provided through GOLFSelect) is a fun test of golf. The course has been redesigned by Michael Clayton (Barnbougle Dunes architect) and currently there are 9 holes in play with the other 9 holes due for completion in mid November.

Further developments are occuring in the Yarra Valley region including the establishment of Yering Meadows (relocation of the Croydon Golf Club) (which will incorporate a 36 hole golfing complex) and one other project in its early stages.
