“Just wanted to say I really enjoyed my experience last Thursday night staying at Barwon Heads. There was a group of members and non-members and it we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. The food was delicious, the staff were fantastic and the club itself was in great shape – both inside and on the course! Very much looking forward to visiting again and making the most of the lovely facilities and location.”

GOLF AUSTRALIA PUBLIC ACCESS COURSE RANKINGS
The Barwon Heads Golf Club has jumped up from 7th to 6th place in the Golf Australia Magazine 2017 Top 100 Public Access Courses. The improvement is significant as two new courses, Cape Wickham Links and Ocean Dunes, both in King Island, have debuted at 1st and 4th respectively.
The editors commented that Barwon Heads was “swimming against the flow here by moving up one spot when several in the top-10 have been forced down a few spots. Recently completed redesign work on the back nine by Neil Crafter and Paul Mogford has enhanced the overall experience of a round here.”
The Top 10:
1. Cape Wickham
2. Barnbougle Dunes
3. Barnbougle Lost Farm
4. Ocean Dunes
5. St. Andrews Beach
6. Barwon Heads
7. Links Kennedy Bay
8. Thirteenth Beach (Beach)
10. Joondalup Resort
