The Course

The Links at Barwon Heads regularly rates in Australia’s top golf courses.

The nearby Bass Strait and sand dunes along with the weather conditions provide a course reminiscent of famed Scottish links. The undulating terrain, in harmony with the natural features of the land will ensure that you will remember time spent at Barwon Heads.


Although many of the practices below are not part of the formal rules of golf, golfers playing the links are expected to observe them.

The R&A rule book states that “the overriding principle is that consideration should be shown to others on the course at all times”.

“Dressing well is a form of good manners”

– Tom Ford


Weekly competitions, social play, pennant, inter-club fixtures, prestigious honour board events –  or just a relaxing twilight round with a guest. The choice is yours.


Except during peak times when demand from members is at its highest, The Barwon Heads Golf Club welcomes green fee players on most Mondays and Fridays – and after members’ competition times on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Play during peak times (weekends, public holidays and from 26 December to the Australia Day long weekend) is usually unavailable or extremely limited. 


Green fee players wishing to access the course during peak and more popular times (e.g. January, weekends, holidays etc. prior to competition times) can do so by staying in the Clubhouse and enjoying one of Australia’s greatest golf experiences. Clubhouse accommodation guests on the full board package receive guaranteed tee times for an included round of golf on most days of the year.
