The Dunes Golf Links is announcing its intention to expand its specialized luxury golfer accommodation by another 12 bedrooms.
Based in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula, The Dunes opened 23 bedrooms in November 2021. These facilities are made up of 6 suites with 12 bedrooms and a further 11 single bedrooms. The accommodation is so popular with golfers and regional tourists that course owner, Duncan Andrews, will build a further 12 single bedrooms. It is planned that 35 bedrooms, in total, will be the limit for accommodation at the famous course.
According to Mr Andrews, the expansion is due to The Dunes proving to be a perfect venue for the travelling golfer. The golf courses are in brilliant condition, very popular and very playable for all levels of golfer – so much so that The Dunes is putting in controls over player numbers to maximize player enjoyment. In comparison to much of the rest of Australia, the courses are also bone dry, being built in sand dunes.
Mr Andrews says “in addition to the well-recognized golf assets at The Dunes, our accommodation is of the highest standard. Every room has a balcony with great views of the course and there is a private luxury lounge for guests. Of course, we are also centrally located on the Mornington Peninsula, so our guests can easily access other courses and wineries in the region.”
The Dunes is also an investor in another Mornington Peninsula landmark, the extremely popular St Andrews Beach Brewery, and The Dunes is able to offer guests special access to the brewery.
Not content with its development of accommodation, The Dunes has been making a number of small but significant changes to the course. A number of bunkers have been removed but the most important change is to the first tee and fairway. Andrews said he has never been really happy with the first drive of the day and with the help of Darius Oliver (who built Australia’s second ranked course, Cape Wickham Links, for Andrews) he now thinks they have got that all-important first drive perfect.
“It is now very welcoming, the fairway is much wider and the ambience from the tee has been improved 100%” said Andrews.
