                    SPRING VALLEY GOLF CLUB
               THE HIDDEN JEWEL OF THE SANDBELT!

The term “Hidden Jewel” was first used by renowned golf course critic, Tom Ramsay to
describe the Spring Valley Golf Course.

That statement brilliantly captured the fact that existing in the famed Sandbelt region of
Melbourne, together with the more famous courses such as Royal Melbourne, Kingston
Heath and Metropolitan, is a private golf club membership that enjoys the pleasure of
playing on a course borne out of the same terrain.

Founded in 1948 the club has quietly gone about its business by providing the members
with ever improving facilities. The golf course is home to a huge variety of bird life and
its immaculate greens and fairways and signature bunkering contribute to Spring Valleys
rating in the top ten courses in Victoria.

Situated just 30 minutes from Melbourne, Spring Valley is a golf course that every golfer
would want to play.
