Naming the Holes at Jubilee

Jubilee Golf Holes - named by Course Designer and Golf Professional, Dick Pendlebury

  1. Gully - Named after the gully that ran across and down the right side of the fairway.
  2. Plateau - the second green gives the appearance of a plateau from the golfer's 2nd shot.
  3. Hell Bent - Dick wanted this hole to be much longer with less of a dog leg.  The boundary fence meant that he was forced to have a very sharp dog leg.
  4. Lone Pine - named after the pine tree above the green and recognition of Lone Pine at Gallipoli.
  5. Yallock - Aboriginal word for water.  Dick was very keen to have a number of aboriginal names.
  6. Panorama - the most spectacular view on the course.  Proposed site for the clubhouse after the original club house was burnt down.  The second proposed site was just below drive length before the fairway swings to the left around the dam.  Dick also wanted to retain the gully in front of the green and make it into a "Scottish burn" which would also run across the 9th and 1st fairways.
  7. Dinjara - Aboriginal work for west.  The only hole played due west but protected from the evening sun by the hills.
  8. Lowanna - an aboriginal girls name meaning beautiful.  Dick thought this was a lovely short hole with a magnificent vista.  He also wished to place a number of small pot bunkers around the hole so it had a link with the most famous short hole in the world, the 8th at Troon Golf Club (Scotland) - the Postage Stamp - 112 metres.
  9. Buffalo - the view from the tee frames Mt Buffalo.
  10. Warby - the climb up the slope to the Warby Ovens National Park.  One of the reasons the clubhouse proposal above the 6th was rejected because this hole would have been a poor finishing hole with golfers teeing off into the sun.
  11. Blackboy - as a result of the large number of blackboys (grass trees) growing beside the fairway.
  12. Boomerang - a perfect boomerang shape.
  13. Water hole - beautiful short hole.  Dick's ability to have four very different par three holes is a feature of his design.
  14. Peaks - hole which frames Mt Warby and other peaks in the Warby Ovens National Park.
  15. Zig Zag - a thinking golf hole - as danger looms with every shot.
  16. Hollow - a short par 4 into a hollow.  Short par 4 holes are a feature of most leading Australian sand belt courses.
  17. The Road - named after the most famous par 4 in golf.  The road hole at St Andrews which is also the 17th hole.
  18. Amaroo - Aboriginal work meaning beautiful place. Dick felt the word represented the end of a beautiful day.

Design Features:

Dick was limited by a site that had a majority of sloping fairways.  He makes us walk up 7, 10 and 14 but allows fifteen holes where the walking is much easier.

Every hole is different in feature both in fairway design and the green.

Holes go in all directions of the compass with varying views of the Warby Range, Victorian Alps or the native bushland.   This constant change of direction avoids playing west into the afternoon sun.

He managed to avoid back to back short par 3 holes and long par 5 holes to add variety to the golf course.

He believed in the first hole on a course should be slightly down hill and would have preferred the first to be slightly easier.

He would have liked to have added more bunkers but the cost of maintenance and the poor soil suitablilty has resulted in bunkers not being a feature. 

He envisaged a burn across the 6th, 9th and 1st fairways.  This would have been a great feature.

Minimum walking between greens and tees.

Consideration of the opportunity to maximise drive lengths especially on the longer holes.

He would have like the third to be slightly longer.  There is a belief that the 3rd green is already part of an old road reserve. Dick made use of all the available piece of land on the site.

Jubilee is a great course, in a magnificent setting and was designed by Dick Pendlebury at a fee of seventy five pounds.
