Few clubhouses are as part of the golf experience as the one at The Barwon Heads Golf Club.

For almost a century the Clubhouse has greeted visitors to the course and formed a backdrop for the finishing hole, so close it seems to be in play. It embodies the characteristics of the quintessential clubhouse, appearing stately in its setting, affording exceptional views of the course, and warmly housing the camaraderie of members and guests.



“If golf courses are the soul of a golf club, then the clubhouse is its heart ”

– Richard Diedrich –



“Hands down the best clubhouse in Australia”

– Steve Beach, Australian Golf Digest –


Entry to the Clubhouse is restricted to members and their guests, suitably attired green fee players, house guests staying at the Club and those registered to attend a meeting, event or function. The liquor licensing legislation requires that guests and green fee players be signed in as visitors in the visitor’s book. This is available immediately opposite the reception desk. This, and other rules designed to engender respect for other guests, BHGC staff and the laws of the land can be found below.

Travellers have been making use of the accommodation facilities within the iconic Barwon Heads Clubhouse since 1924.
There are 19 ensuite rooms available for those visiting Barwon Heads seeking a traditional, service-oriented experience.


From June 2024, highly anticipated renovations to the heritage-listed Clubhouse will require the iconic 100-year-old Clubhouse to close for approximately 12-months, during which time accommodation will not be available. Guests with existing bookings will be contacted and provided with additional information. 


As a private club, the dining facilities in the Clubhouse are only open to members, their guests, house guests and those invited to attend specific events and functions.
After signing in as visitors, suitably attired green fee players are invited to lunch in the Links Room either before or after their round.
