About Sorrento Golf Course
"Days of golf at Sorrento are high on the list of sporting pleasures. I would rather be there than at Carnoustie, Gleneagles, Pebble Beach or Pinehurst." - Peter Thomson
Sorrento Golf Course is a well groomed, hilly course with all year playability set on a sand and limestone base. It's generous fairways and roughs are surrounded by densely wooded plantations, and bent grass greens are moderately to heavily bunkered. When Melbourne's early stalwarts travelled to the Mornington Peninsula for their holidays, they took their golf along with them.
The Sorrento Golf Club became the "Royal Melbourne of the South", a course built on classic lines, borrowed from the original, for the joy and pleasure of golfers good and bad - 18 holes, each with a character all its own, challenging you to a rematch, over and over again. The Club invites you to share its treasure, enjoy its beauty and record a score you can boast about.
You can arrange your own tournaments within your group, conducted by the Club's professional John Horvath, and present your winners over superb dining with fine wines in the old Australian charm of the original Club House.
