One-time host of the Australian PGA Championship, Rosebud Country Club has two courses adjacent the road that takes golfers to the more high-profile offerings of the Mornington Peninsula. The South and North here both present excellent couch grass fairways and bent greens year-round, and have enough subtle undulation for interesting golf.
A composite of its best holes tweaked with some quality greens and more strategic bunkering would elevate the place significantly. As it stands this is one of the friendlier clubs on the Peninsula, and a great membership option for many.
Extract from the club website:
Any club is only as good as its course and Rosebud Country Club is extremely fortunate that it has two real gems that will delight everyone from the experienced golf professional to the casual player.
The North course stretches to 6,160 metres off the men’s blue tees, playing to a par of 71 and with a scratch Rating of 72.9. Ladies benefit from an extra shot on the 17th, the toughest hole on the course for the men.
The South course measures 5,974 metres off the men’s blue tees, playing to a par of 72 for both sexes and with a scratch rating of 71.9 for the men.
Some may find the South Course fractionally easier, though there is little to separate the two and both thrill members and first-time visitors with their golfing challenge and immaculate appearance. The club has access to a constant supply of recycled water, thereby ensuring the high quality year-round presentation of our courses.
The beauty of the design of our layouts means that it is very easy to combine any two sets of nine holes seamlessly, meaning the club is able to offer four course layouts.
Our course has hosted many major events, including the Australian PGA Championship in 1976. Play here once and you will want to come back again and again.
