Accommodation in the Clubhouse
Golfers have been making use of the accommodation facilities within the iconic Barwon Heads Clubhouse since 1924.
“Hands down the best clubhouse in Australia” Steve Beach, Golf Digest panellist. Read more…
Repeat patronage (at the clubhouse’s 19-room accommodation wing) is high, as golfers return again and again to soak up the whole experience of top-class golf, great food and accommodation to match. Barwon Heads offers a complete golf getaway. With three forms of golf to play plus dining and accommodation on-site, there’s really no reason to leave until the real world calls you back.” Steve Keipert – Golf Australia Magazine
“One of the great golf destinations before ‘destination golf’ was even a thing.” Adrian Logue
Accommodation in the house is available for anyone*, but it’s fair to say the vast majority of our guests are golfers. There are 19 ensuite rooms available in single, twin or double bedding configuration and a variety of packages available that incorporate your stay with golf, conferences, dining and entertainment. Rooms are classified either ‘Standard’ or ‘Balcony’, the latter sharing access to a balcony that overlooks the course and the Barwon Coast.
A variety of accommodation options are available, from bed and breakfast to full board (including one round of golf, accommodation, cooked breakfast, lunch and three course a la carte dinner). We also offer special packages.
Golf and Tennis Facilities
One round of golf is included in your full board accommodation package. The Club has reserved tee times for house guests, (usually between 8.45 and 9.15am but subject to special events.) It is necessary that you contact the reservations team or the Pro Shop prior to your arrival to reserve a specific time for your included round of golf. Guests wishing to play more than one round of golf during their stay will be required to contact the Pro Shop eight days prior to day of play to check course availability and book a tee time. Charges for this second round will apply.
* Due to the weekly women’s competition on Tuesdays, tee times for house guests must be before 8.00 am or from 1.00 pm onwards.
In addition to our magnificent, nationally recognised course, the Club also has four mod grass tennis courts, a nine-hole par 3 course and an extensive short game practice area.
Registration & Check-in
On most days the front desk is open between 8:30am and 5.00pm for guest registration. Guest rooms, however, are not available for check-in until 2.00pm. (You may store your luggage and use the change rooms if your tee time is prior to your room being available.) If you plan to arrive after 5.00pm, please contact the Club beforehand.
Guests are required to vacate their rooms by 10:30am. If golf is planned on the final morning of your visit, please remove all items from the rooms prior to teeing off.
Guests are reminded that accounts are to be settled on departure. Accounts may be paid by cash, cheque, MasterCard or Visa.
Many groups return annually and whenever possible are given first preference for re-booking the same days the following year. This must be done at the time of check-out.
Please note that cancellations made within 30 days prior to the arrival date will incur a charge of $50.00 per person per night. This will be charged to your credit card or member account. Please note: Guests who do not arrive, or cancel on day of arrival, will be charged full tariff.
*The Clubhouse is not equipped to accommodate infants and guests who wish to stay with children are asked to call before booking. You may decide the Clubhouse is not the most appropriate choice if you’re holidaying with children.
