Play golf in Victor Harbor at McCracken Country Club
In 2012, Brendan James, Editor of Golf Australia magazine reviewed McCracken Country Club, stating that the course has the potential to cement a place deep in the Top-100 (Public Access Courses in Australia) in the future years, due to its “vastly improved presentation of its fairways and greens” in recent times, complemented by the quality of the design.
Designed by renowned golf architect Tony Cashmore, McCracken Country Club’s international championship standard 18 hole course is one of more than 5 courses located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, and offers both guests staying at the resort and the public the opportunity to test their skills on this challenging, but rewarding layout.
Undulating fairways lead to manicured greens, amongst the picturesque hazards scattered throughout the course – 72 bunkers and 14 lakes & ponds which will sometimes be cause for even the best golfer to come unstuck. But when you do take the risk, it can be duly rewarded, which is what makes this course such a competitive challenge amongst friends.
Green Fees for 18 holes of play are as follows:
|Weekdays (Mon – Fri) : $35 per person
Weekends (Sat – Sun) : $45 per person
SA Public Holidays & School Holidays: $45 per person
Tee time bookings are essential – phone the Pro Shop on 08 8551 0299 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Electric Carts are available to hire from the Pro Shop. All carts feature a state-of-the-art 12 inch GPS screen to help you navigate the course and assist with play. Cart hire is $40.
