Designer: Michael Clayton
Course Opened: 1963

Port Fairy is a charming coastal links built along a series of tumbling sand dunes, with views out to the Southern Ocean and parts of the course almost touching the Ocean waters. The club was founded in 1901 but did not move to its present location until 1963. Originally opening with nine holes the links expanded to a full 18 by 1985 and in 2000 the club employed Michael Clayton to oversee the fine-tuning of this increasingly popular links.

Clayton describes the natural sand hills of Port Fairy as having been ‘largely unaltered by man and only mown in order to define fairways and rough’. He adds that the club is developing a higher profile amongst the golfing community, ‘earning the reputation of a golf course worth travelling a long way to play - almost to the point of enjoying 'cult' status’.
