My other discovery of Mornington Peninsula

The other discovery I made while in Mornington Peninsula is the numerous golf courses there. Within a short drive of each other; spread out amongst the suburbs (Can I actually call it suburb?) of Rye, Sorrento through to Postsea, I counted around 18 public golf courses.

What is it about Mornington to entice golf enthusiasts to build so many courses there? Cheap land or just the general geographical topology of the land. I would have thought it would be difficult to maintain a good quality golf course balance with a competitive pricing in an area with a golf course at every other corner. It is the equivalent of a pub every few metres in a street.

Anyway, one of the more famous golf course is the Moonah Links golf course. It is the place where the Australian Open is held annually. I had a ride around the course while my friend played. It was huge and my first time driving a golf cart!:)

With 18 golf courses there, it is going to take quite some time to play all of them!
