No golfing trip to the Peninsula is complete without a round at the oldest and most scenic of all the courses in the region - Flinders Golf Club. Situated atop the cliff tops overlooking Bass Strait and Westernport Bay, Flinders provides a wonderful golfing experience combining the sense of tradition that comes with being over one hundred years old with top quality playing conditions.
