“This was no flat, uninspiring paddock. Nature gave me a great start here with a landform that allowed me to create a wonderful golf course for Heritage Members.” –Jack Nicklaus
The immense experience of perhaps the world’s most influential golfer, Jack Nicklaus, is reflected in the design of the St John Golf Course. The first private Nicklaus ‘Signature’ golf course built in Australia, its sculptured fairways form a stunning vista at The Heritage’s entrance and extend 6670 metres to the banks of the Yarra.
With an Australian Course Rating of 74 off the Gold tee, this championship par 72 course challenges at every turn. Taking advantage of the Yarra Valley’s natural contours, dazzling water features flow throughout St John while strategically placed slopes, mounds and traps make every hole a quest of its own.
St John’s specially designed bunkers artfully guide players toward the green. Generous fairways, immaculately groomed greens, paved cart paths winding throughout the course and meticulous landscaping all add to a rewarding playing experience that is both attainable and captivating.
