COURSES – 27 holes + 9 Hole par 3

“I’m proud to announce that construction has started on my newest golf course design, The Eastern Golf Club in the Yarra Valley Region.  My goal is to improve upon the rich tradition and heritage of a golf club with origins dating back to 1896, by creating a golf course that we hope will on day rank as one of the top golf courses in Australia.  In this day and age when most golf courses are built in conjunction with a residential development or a resort, this project is very unique as we will have one and only one focus, golf.” 

Greg Norman, Greg Norman Golf Course Design – December 2013

The Eastern Golf Club’s new course has been designed with quality and playablibity in mind. The Clubs course design brief to designers was, that the course must be/have;
