CLIPNOTES by Ben Bateson (ousgg)

Description
Real, woodland course
Location
Melbourne, Australia
Conditions
Keep an eye on the pin positions, and something like F*/M* will play fine.
Concept  9/10
One of the premier golfing venues, Huntingdale makes great use of the south Australian sandbelt landscape. The lack of elevation is barely noticed when there are eighteen holes this good placed in front of you, with bunkers and fairway widths at tournament tournament standard and using the surrounding orchard trees as both boundary and obstacle. Impressively, and despite some rather obvious signs of modern alteration, it retains some of the austerity and assuredness even on the PC.
Appearance  10/10
Jasonís style has always been impressive visually, and heís conveyed the Australian style outstandingly well through the dry areas, muddy water and attention to detail across the course, down to distance markers and sprinkler heads, as well as the great array of buildings on and around the course. The texture blends are outstanding, and the bunker walls unusual but impeccable. With shots such as the one above being commonplace, itís not easy to find an area to fault.
Playability  10/10
One of those few courses where two test rounds just wasnít enough, Huntingdale has an intriguing range of pin positions and a seemingly unlimited number of ways to go wrong off the tee! In all seriousness, itís addictive stuff, and all too easy to immerse yourself in the outback. One of the most atmospheric Real courses available, full stop.
Challenge  5/10
Although itís apparent that the course has been lengthened over the years, it still plays pretty easy for the Links golfer, even despite some well-guarded greens. That wonít worry many people, and nor should it Ė youíll be here for much more than a stiff challenge.
Technical  10/10
Itís difficult to fault something that is self-evidentially proof of so much hard work, thoroughness and creativity. With this release, Jason elevates himself from merely an excellent designer to genuinely part of the elite.
Overall Beautifully created and coloured, Huntingdale is not only the best Australian course out there, but one of the best worldwide. 44/50
