Like the Peninsula's North Course, the South was laid out by Sloan Morpeth in the 1960s and updated by Michael Clayton some forty years later. In addition to these courses, with their spacious and attractive clubhouse, the Peninsula Country Club also offers tennis, lawn bowling and a championship pool. The club is over an hour's drive from Melbourne, but the loveliness of the scenery makes the trip seem like a special golf getaway. Longer than the North, at 6321 meters, the South offers rolling and ample fairways, though purposefully light tending leaves the native flora ready to punish the errant shot. A wilderness ambience pervades the whole course, in particular a stream that crops up at the very first hole. Because the Peninsula is a ways from Melbourne, and because it offers two courses, golfers will want to spend a couple nights at the clubhouse for an extended weekend of golf.
