Always enjoy finding out about new courses close to home! Gardiners Run Golf Course is the new home of Chirnside Park Country Club. Located about a driver and 3 wood from its old location, Gardiners Run is on the site of a former quarry. Golf architect Phil Ryan has incorporated three lakes and a significant amount of bunkers to penalise the wayward shot, but generous fairways will reward the shotmaker. The 384 metre par 4 finishing hole features a green well protected by water and will no doubt be the talking point in the 19th afterwards.
The Yarra Valley is now another Melbourne golfing mecca incorporating the Heritage, Yering Meadows, RACV Healesville, Gardiners Run and the new Greg Norman designed Eastern Golf Club next year. Throw in some excellent wineries and local produce and you have the perfect weekend escape.
Gardiners Run opened to green fee players in early May 2014. Look forward to playing the course and posting a review soon.
