Introducing our Head Chef Patrick Bowring

Growing up in the ‘colourful’ St. Kilda in the nineties, Patrick’s Hospitality career started when he soon realised school wasn’t going to be one of his strong points.

He found him self working in Richmond’s hip Gastro pub “the Kingston’, Under head chef Emma MacKay  (Young Chef of the Year 2003).  He then went on to work at ‘Circa The Prince’ and was fortunate to be apart of the Kitchen Team to be awarded the prestigious Three Hats from The Age Good Food Guide (2005).

Unfortunately for Pat, in 2009 he met Andrew Noonan at the Mentone Hotel. In their time at Mentone, they both steered the business to record profit years.

After a few more roles leading his own kitchens in Melbourne, he relocated to the beautiful Mornington Peninsula to open and run the kitchen at McCrae’s Pavilion.

Fortunately timing has worked for us and we have landed Pat at Rossdale Golf Club. His menu’s are inspired by locally sourced produce, aged quality cuts of meat and seasonal vegetables which are treated with respect and cooked with honed technique.

In his spare time you can find him tackling Australia’s hardest ultra-marathons and hanging out with his wife and two cheeky daughters Poppy and Violet.

We would like you to come to join us at our ‘Food and Wine’ nights and experience the elegance Pat has honed over the last 20 years in the industry.

This event has limited spaces, so book now and join us on these very special occasions.

From the Course!

As you will be well aware, winter is upon us, with 92 mm of rain through May and another 72 mm midway through June, ensuring our irrigation dams are full.

Currently golf carts are still in use on the golf course, I believe this is due to the setting up off ropes, posts and hoops in areas which are known to struggle from heavy traffic.  I understand that these barriers can be unsightly and a hindrance, but please ensure that these barriers remain in the correct locations and that golf carts remain outside of the blue lines. Cart access to the course will be reviewed weekly, with our intention to keep carts out there for as long as possible.

Keep warm and hit ’em straight.
