The Gold marker rating is a Slope of 118, Par 70 and Scratch 70.
New Gold domes & tombstones

The new Gold domes and tombstones are on the 9th, 11th & 18th holes. All the other holes will continue to be played from the previous blue tombstones which are now coloured blue/gold.
New GUR on the 6th, 10th & 11th holes. Please look for Drop Zones and play accordingly.
These areas are being resown.
Late November 2018 – the course is getting better and better!
Brighton Golf Course is a true test of Sandbelt golf with a short front nine leading to a longer, more challenging inward nine. It will test every level of golfer through its narrow fairways and small well bunkered greens.
The Bayside City Council’s $2.95 million Storm Water Harvesting Project at Brighton Golf Course has now been completed. The project will see around 86 Megalitres of water diverted from the Melbourne Water stormwater system each year that will be naturally treated and used to water both the Brighton Golf Course and areas of Dendy Park.
Work on the 5th green is well finished and is of a high quality.
As we approach summer the improvement on the course has been outstanding and the greens, in particular, are getting back to good putting surfaces.
