“Yarra Valley’s Eastern Golf Club is a truly special place where members can enjoy teeing off with kangaroos while taking in the spectacular views of the surrounding Christmas Hills and Dividing Ranges. This course delivers a natural golf experience and I am proud to be a part of it.” Greg Norman, Greg Norman Golf Course Design.
The Eastern Golf Club is a Greg Norman Designed Golf Course that was designed with one thing in mind – playability – for everyone and Norman has definitely delivered on that brief.
The course is a second shot course with an emphasis on good iron play and course management to score well. The fairways are wide and generous although approaching the green from the right angle is important to maximise opportunities. The green complexes are where most of the challenges are but there are always escape routes for the more conservative golfer. There are five tee options available that accommodate all levels of players so be sure to pick the right one, also taking into consideration the conditions on the day.
