Golf Course Design Overview
Robert has introduced a new category to his vast portfolio as a champion golfer- golf course designer. Bringing years of experience from playing competitve (and casual) golf on many of the world's finest courses, he has cultivated a unique eye for the natural beauty and design components necessary to create a compelling yet competitive golf course.
Embarking on this new endeavor, Robert's philosophy is simple - to allow the topography to dictate the routing of the golf course. Incorporating the exisiting landscape and environmental elements into the course layout with minimal disturbance to the natural setting. The objective is not only to create a fair but competitive test of golf that accepts all levels of play, but provides each player with a memorable experience on a course that promotes conservation and embraces the beauty of nature.

Set amongst 150 acres, the Forest Resort golf course makes for an extraordinary golf experience. "The existing Forest Resort golf course was extended into new land to create a spectacular 6,300 metre golf journey featuring natural vegetation and crafted waterways," Allenby said.
This championship design has allowed for the natural flow of land to determine the course routing wherever possible using all available ground elements – ridges, swales, spurs and trees to create golf course holes with individuality, visual beauty and strategic flexibility.
"I am a very proud Victorian so the fact that my first design is here is extremely exciting."
