Our St John course is an American parkland style course with wide generous fairways and subtle greens to test even the most serious golfer. Originally designed by Jack Nicklaus, the course wraps around the spectacular Heritage entrance and extends 6670 metres to the banks of the Yarra river. St John’s specially designed bunkers artfully guide players through the immaculately groomed greens. Strategically placed slopes, mounds and traps make every hole a quest of its own.
It is the Club’s intention that Members and their guests have course access 364 days a year. The picturesque layout at Heritage is deceptive in terms of what happens under the greens and fairways. Engineers have designed a proven flood mitigation plan to manage storm water as it moves through the property towards the Yarra river. A sensor activated flood gate is designed to automatically check the water flow and open as required, reducing the pressure and allowing exact amounts of water through the course and into the Yarra River.
