There’s hope for us all!! For the players who missed the cut at the VIC PGA there was an option to play a pro-am at Moonah Links today. It’s an interesting course, Moonah, and one that sets off many debates. Is it worthy of being labeled the “home of Australian golf??” Hmmmm…. not so sure. It’s certainly a nice location set in rolling dunes with holes weaving in and out of the natural landscape. But where many people question the nature of the layout is the placing of the bunkers all over the fairways. The intention was to force the player to think about the line and distance they hit their tee shots. I’m not so sure Thompson has achieved this at Moonah Links as many a player will find the bunkering too “chancy”. Overall though I find Moonah a pleasure to play as it’s in great condition and has some beautiful large sloping greens which can house many varying pin positions.
