June, July, August 2021, Sunday to Thursday
The Winter Escape package is the best way to play one of the highest rated public access courses on mainland Australia.
Bed and breakfast with complimentary golf.
Situated only metres from Victoria’s roaring Surf Coast, this highly rated links course is a delight to play any time of the year. But in winter the open air experience – with Mother Nature by your side – can be even more memorable. With the salt breeze blowing over the natural contours of the course and its immaculate greens you’ll feel like you’re on one of Scotland or England’s elite courses.
Established in 1907, The Barwon Heads Golf Club is considered by many to be Australia’s first true links course. And right next to the renowned links, the Clubhouse has a unique atmosphere that brings more than a hint of old Scotland to Victoria. It’s been described in Australian Golf Digest as “hands down the best clubhouse in Australia.”
Complimentary golf for up to two guests with Sunday-Thursday B&B packages during winter 2021. Save up to $120 each on green fees. From $137.50pp including accommodation, golf and a cooked breakfast. More information…
