Located in the heart of the Hunter Valley, The Vintage Golf Club features an 18-hole, Greg Norman co-designed golf course that has been ranked among the best in Australia.

A course that is challenging, engaging and welcoming in equal parts, The Vintage welcomes you to partake in a game – be it as leisurely or competitive as you like. Bordering the Beggars Bridge and Bimbadgen vineyards, the golf course opened in 2003. The course measures 6,242 metres with a par of 71 and is one of the only Greg Norman-designed public access golf courses in the region and New South Wales.

The Vintage has renowned professional Richard Mercer as its director of instruction. A member of the PGA of Australia since 1978, Mercer played on the Australian, European and Asian tours.

The facility is open seven days a week and offers a fully serviced driving range, practice chipping area (adjacent to the driving range) and putting green located near the golf shop, which carries a premium range of golf equipment, clothing, footwear and accessories to assist with your game.

Housed on-site and overlooking the rolling greens of the course, the award-winning Château Élan, one of Australia’s finest resorts, not only offers luxury accommodation, but also a premium golf club, a full-service spa, all in the heart of a world-famous food and wine region.

An easy two-hour drive from Sydney or a one-hour flight from Brisbane means it’s perfectly accessible for an extended stay or a quick weekend getaway that is stress-free and relaxed for the whole family.

The property also boasts four separate event spaces, each beautifully presented with dynamic, flexible configurations, attentive staff and a comprehensive range of inclusions as standard.

There is also a range of sophisticated accommodation at the resort, including spacious suites housed within the hotel complex, as well as standalone one and two-bedroom villas with modern facilities. All rooms have balconies or terraces overlooking The Vintage fairways and the Hunter Valley.

At The Legends Restaurant and Spike Bar, fine cuisine is served throughout the day and into the evening where guests can surround themselves with breathtaking views over a bottle of wine. Also, The Wine Lounge offers an extensive wine list, sourced from the leading vineyards of the Hunter region.
