A rusting windmill on the tenth is the most distinctive hazard on the Moonah course in Victoria, Australia, an hour south of Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula. The Greg Norman and Bob Harrison design is one of three courses at the National Golf Club, the largest private club in the Southern Hemisphere. During construction in 2000, Norman stopped the crew from removing the windmill to preserve a part of the farmland's history.
The Mornington Peninsula is emerging as Australia's top new golf destination; six of the region's eleven courses are rated among the best in the country. The Moonah course, named for the indigenous trees scattered across its rolling hills, beckons travelers with stunning coastal views. The National Golf Club accepts advance reservations for international visitors; for tee times, call 011-61/359-886-666 or visit nationalgolf.com.au.
