“One of Norman's Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

The Vintage is an excellent test of golf. True risk-reward par 5s, a great mix of short and long par 4s, memorable par 3s and classic bunkering are the features of the layout. Leave the driver in the bag for the first four holes will help your score. On the longer holes, if you can shape your ball from the tee, you can take good advantage of the natural contours. A game here will complement any weekend in the Hunter.

“Not matching its reputation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We had been told a lot about this course but unfortunately we have been disappointed. We know this may come from natural elements but the fairways are extremely dry and hard. Greens were usually ok although not cut enough. We needed 5 hours to play on a Saturday which means waiting at the beginning of every single hole. Knowing that you pay more than $120 per head to play on a weekend, this is a bit disappointing.

“Best golfing in the Hunter Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The Vintage golf club offers a great experience for golfers and non golfers. The course is a challenging and requires some good course management. The club house has a relaxed yet high end feel to it with great food and wine on offer. We stay in the Mecure apartments that overlook the golf course and they are well appointed, comfortable and inviting. Overall a great golfing experience. For the non golfer there is the pool, spa and gym areas that will keep y entertained for awhile and of course there is so much to do in the area that you will find you will need more time!

“Wow - Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I was with a medium sized corporate group. We had an amazing dinner booked on the Saturday evening. The staff were lovely and knew the value of communication (simple things like advising which table would be served first). I had a lovely scallop entree and salmon dish (proving you can have good seafood away from the sea) and the pudding for dessert was to die for. Wow

Breakfasts were hearty and full of options. All the food was hot. The muffins were lovely. no request was at all difficult for the staff.

Would certainly come back. No hesitation.

My partner loved the golf course and found all the staff lovely. It is expensive but very suitable for corporate entertaining.
