“18 holes of joy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The Golf Club at the Vintage in the Hunter Valley, (2 hours North of Sydney) is spectacular - 18 holes of pure joy. The course has it's challenges with bunkers placed to challenge even the most experienced golfer and water holes that enhance the course and add a trick or two.

The price is similar to that of most private golf courses in Australia and a nice trip around the vineyards after golf is a great way to enjoy the Hunter Valley. The Vintage has accommodation on site, the Grand Mecure Vintage apartments, which are lovely and well appointed or the more exclusive (and more expensive) Chateau Elan. Both use the golf club restaurant 'Legends' for meals. A great few days for a mini break from the city.

“A windy day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Despite the windy day, hubby had a great round of golf on the course whilst I enjoyed a couple of hours at the day spa. Very enjoyable

“No idea about customer service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Review about club house and restaurant only.....
We visit The Vintage about twice a year as a family member owns a house in The Vintage. It's an absolutely gorgeous place, beautifully kept gardens and posh looking club house. Only problem is, is that's it's a complete shambles every time. Bad service, completely uninterested staff, everything is a problem. This weekend we were there and walked up to use ATM. ATM was not working so I asked a male staff member in an orange shirt if I they allowed eftpos over the bar. He looked up from his newspaper and said "We're all closed up right now" and looked back at his paper. I have story after story like this. For the amount of money that residents are charged annually - you expect happy, friendly and attentive staff. Instead I got yet another bad experience.
