It is a picturesque 18 holes

Mt Xavier golf course is situated in the eastern suburbs of Ballarat.

It is a picturesque 18 holes. The course is excellent in terms of variety with many holes going through thick pine trees and other holes in open undulating land. Feature holes include the tantilizing 233m 1st, the downhill par 3 14th and the tough 17th 360m par 4 that requires 2 excellent shots to a tiny green. The greens are always in good shape with some severe slopes on the 4th 5th and the 16th. The fairways can become dry in summer and it is not a long course, but these deficiencies are somewhat compensated by the variety of holes and challenging approach shots.
