".....it (Port Fairy) is the best value golf in the world - without question."  Golf Australia


The January 2010 edition of one of Australia's most prestigious, best selling golf magazines,"Golf Australia" features "AUSTRALIA'S 50 BEST COURSES 2010"  and PORT FAIRY HAS DONE IT AGAIN! - but even  better - improving from 44th to best course in the nation in 2006 to 42nd in 2008 to 41st in 2010!

The feature says
"The ranking of 2010 is a superb mixture of classic courses - some made over for these modern times - as well as relatively new and exciting layouts.
As you read through our list you can be assured the courses featured are the best of the best - the cream of Australian golf"

The 13 judges (7 of whom were new) were each asked to submit their list of 50 courses with greater emphasis criterion to be placed on a courses design and less on it's conditioning.

The top 50 are an impressive list of courses and the Port Fairy Golf Club has every reason to be extremely  proud not only of its inclusion again but also its improved ranking.

Again only three western Victorian courses are included in this years ranking: Thirteenth Beach - Beach course, Barwon Heads and Port Fairy.

In addition Port Fairy has been ranked above some extremely well known courses including Amstel, The Vines, Club Pelican, Hope Island,  Huntingdale and Hyatt Regency Coolum with many other well known couses not attaining a top 50 ranking.

With green fees of $37 and a full membership of $445 
(and for those outside the 40km radius - a country membership of $370 ) it must be said that:

Port Fairy has again lived up to its reputation  as
"the best value golf in the world  -  without question!"
