“I love all the peninsula courses but The Dunes stands out. A funky layout that is so much fun to play.”
Jason Day – 2014 World Matchplay Champion & 2005 Dunes Medal Winner – Australian Golf Digest March 2014
“I’ve been fortunate to spend time chatting with Tony Cashmore before and after the construction of his Mornington Peninsula masterpiece. It’s heartwarming to hear Cashmore regale how he designed the par-3 17th hole on the “Redan” hole at North Berwick in Scotland. Significantly, the Dunes inspired a renaissance towards links golf in Australia – which has meant we don’t have to visit Britain to experience links golf”
Rohan Clarke AGD Senior Writer (Top 100 panel member Australian Golf Digest).

“The Dunes is another indicator of the quality and ingenuity of the Australian Golf Industry. The course development presented some unique challenges but also some unique opportunity. The careful tinkering of nature undertaken by the design, construction and maintenance team, leaving all the parts intact, will see The Dunes emerge as one of Australia’s truly great golf courses.”

“I feel compelled to write this letter, primarily to express the fun and enjoyment I have experienced whilst playing the new Championship layout. It easily lived up to my friend’s advance ‘rave’ reviews and I cannot wait to revisit soon”

“I rate The Dunes as one of the truly great links courses that I have played in the world”
Simon Owen – New Zealand PGA Professional (currently on the European Seniors Tour) – 2005
I had the pleasure of playing your absolutely fantastic course. I did not know what to expect and my colleagues, but as soon as I arrived and was greeted by your friendly & helpful staff I knew I was in for something special and you certainly delivered.
What a testing and breathtaking 18 holes of golf, having played at many public and private courses throughout Victoria & N.S.W . I rate yours by far the best, many holes left me breathless and shaking my head at how they have been designed.
All I can say is THANK YOU have made one golfer content and delighted to have played your course, I will be returning you can bet on that.
