The Hunter Valley is one of the best locations for vineyards in Australia, and it also boasts what may be Greg Norman's finest design. The Vintage is also the only public Norman course in New South Wales. Any golfer will find enjoyment here, and top pros will meet with a challenge off the back tees. Accuracy is paramount when playing the front nine if one is to escape the water and sand hazards and reach the diminutive greens. Greater length characterizes the back nine, where raised greens necessitate carries over hazards and bunkering. Numerous doglegs beckon players to cut the corners, but penalize those who miss the mark. The clever use of water here incorporates natural ponds, though wet weather can cause problems. With a clubhouse that can't be beat, it is no wonder that the Vintage has been named among the top hundred courses by Golf Australia, Golf Digest and Golf Magazine.

We played the Greg Norman designed Vintage in Hunter Valley twice & I could still remember all of the holes 3 months later. Every hole is different, although a lot were doglegs, but each poses a new challenge. It is an excellent place to play and despite the higher than normal threat of snakes amongst the vineyards it’s a course I could happily play every day. And there is great wine here too, what’s not to like? A wonderful golf location.

The Vintage ranks inside the main Top 100 and the public listing. Nestled in the heart of the world renowned Hunter Valley Wine Region the course is surrounded by Beggars Bridge and Bimbadgen Vineyards. This is another bold and beautiful course by Greg Norman and his team that feature his traditional and now signature bunkering, some times this bunkering designs gets boring as it's very repetitive throughout Australia. Natural waterways make this course as well as the vineyards running parallel to the fairways! Many native plants and wildlife find their home at the Vintage. Overall it's a great layout and should be played on venture to the Hunter! Then go buy all the wine and local produce!
