Top 100 Spotlight: The Heritage G&CC (Henley) – Australian Golf Digest

Of the eight courses to earn their way back into our biennial Top 100 Golf Courses ranking on merit (as opposed to returning after previous omission due to renovation work), none jumped higher than the
77th-ranked Henley course at The Heritage. It also surpassed its sister course, the St John, for the first time since the Henley opened in 2006.

From day one, the Tony Cashmore-designed Henley established a striking point of difference to the Jack Nicklaus-penned St John, venturing high into the hills of The Heritage site compared to the almost-flat St John layout. Wilder contours led to wilder golf holes, especially on the inward nine where the Henley climbs and descends some seriously undulating property – especially at the par-4 16th hole, which plummets down one of the steepest fairways in Australian golf.
