The Heritage Golf and Country Club is a vision which has been a long time in the making. Located in the spectacular Yarra Valley (a prime Victorian wine district) The Heritage is a Jack Nicklaus Signature designed golf course which meanders its way through gently rolling hills and carefully placed water hazards.
The St.John course is a par 72 course which will have you using every club in your bag. With an ACR of 74 off the Gold tee, this beautifully constructed par 72 course challenges at every turn with excellent water features and strategically placed slopes, mounds and traps.
Jack Nicklaus, arguably the most influential player in golfing history, has drawn on all his experience in designing the St John course – a spectacular parkland course which complements the exquisite beauty of the valley. He has also acted as a Consultant in the development of a second 18 – The Henley, a traditional links style course designed by Tony Cashmore.
Both these courses benefit from an excellent sand base (the result of a massive sand capping process) allowing greenkeepers to grow carpet-like couch fairways with ease. The natural, virtually instantaneous drainage following rainfall allows for uninterrupted play.
The St.John course is a championship golf course and at 6670 metres long features specially designed bunkering to guide players toward the green. Generous landing areas, sculptured fairways, immaculately groomed greens, paved cart paths that weave throughout the course, and meticulous landscaping all add to your playing pleasure.
From the challenging quarry hole par 3 11th (with water down the right hand side and and an ever-present quarry rock face skirting the left side of the hole) to the series of long and testing par 4’s, The Heritage is an enjoyable test of golf.
