President of Portsea Golf Club, Paul Cannon, believes modern facilities combined with sweeping views will ensure Portsea Golf Club is regarded as one of the leading courses in the country.

“With a new clubhouse, members lounge, world class facilities and 4.5 star accommodation rooms, the club will cater for local, interstate and international golfers,” said Mr. Cannon.

Eddie McGuire, Portsea Golf Club member, was onsite to officially announce the redevelopment and witness the initial foundation structures being laid.

Currently ranked 32nd in Australia, Portsea Golf Club has recently employed a number of course design improvements combining strategic bunkering, undulating Santa Ana couch fairways and slick greens.

“The club strives to provide a course that is not only challenging but enjoyable for all ages and standards of golfing ability.”

“The redevelopment will enable the club to utilise the outstanding facilities for weddings and corporate functions,” said Mr. Cannon.
