The Eagle Ridge Golf Course, at 215 Browns Road, Boneo at the entrance to the Mornington Peninsula has been listed for sale.

The 45 hectare property is set about one hour from Melbourne. Two holes in one were scored just last month.

Eagle Ridge Golf Course began as the smaller Carlogie Golf Course until March 1988 when an additional parcel of land was purchased, earthworks commenced and a new Kevin Hartley designed championship course was opened in 1989.

Kevin Hartley was the Australian amateur golf champion of 1958 and runner up to Bruce Devlin in the 1959 Australian Amateur.

He captained the Victorian state team thirteen times, was the leading amateur at three Australian Opens and represented Australia many times, including winning the 1966 Eisenhower Cup team in Mexico.

Hartley based his design vision on Eagle Ridge becoming “the Royal Melbourne of the Mornington Peninsula”.

The ownership of Eagle Ridge transferred to the Russo family in 1995 and, in 1999 Pacific Coast Design was commissioned to design a master plan for course improvements and the new clubhouse opened in 2000. The late Nick Russo was passionate about the business ensuring construction of the functions venue.

Under the management of the golf course superintendent Scott Balloch, the course master plan was completed about 10 years ago.

In 2007 Eagle Ridge closed for a summer to change all fairways to Santa-Ana couch – a more drought tolerant grass with a 45% reduction in water consumption since re-opening.
