Course Reviews

Course Name The Vines
Location The Vines, Western Australia, Australia
Comments from Alan Meacock, Western Australia, Australia
Home to Australia's richest professional golf tournament the $1.5 million Heineken Classic, The Vines has been rated in Australia's top three resort courses since 1991. The Marsh/Watson creation is a strong compelling layout which winds along the banks of the beautiful Ellenbrook through gently undulating natural bushland, with three dramatic lakes around the resort centre. A range of tee positions cater for golfers of all abilities.
Date: July/99

Comments from Sam Bell, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
I played the Vines a few days after the Heineken classic. The greens are very large, soft and run quick but true making approach shots and putting very enjoyable. The bunkers are plentiful and large with soft deep sand making some holes very painful if you leave it short or are wayward, however, all of this is irrelavent if you don't stay on the extremely narrow fairways. The rough is just unplayable and you can destroy a brilliant round on any of the 18 holes. David Livingstone could be alive and well in there.
A fantastic layout for the low to mid handicapper, however, the high handicapper may may find it a bit trying.
