pjudge1975 review

A chance meeting with a member of The National in a local pub culminated in being invited to play the Old Course at the members guest rate of AU$100 (usually $300). Everything about this place is classy. The club house was erected at an enormous cost and has a gym, restaurants, conference rooms, bars etc.. the pro shop is first class and the practice facilities are also top notch. The Old Course is a beauty, the greens are large and undulating, the bunkering is some of the best I’ve seen anywhere and the layout is spectacular - all in splendid condition. Whilst not close to the shoreline there are several stunning views of the ocean. The first tee shot is intimidating! And it never really lets up. The wind blew on the day I played - which I’m told are standard conditions. It is as tough a test as you could hope to play without spoiling the fun. The par 3 7th is a fabulous hole and one at which you are sure to take your camera out. Beware the ocean winds. I made a 9 here! The 8th was a little ‘Mickey Mouse’ in my opinion but apart from that it’s a true test.
