The Experience


 

Thursday 17th September 2020.

To our accommodation guests and golfers…

Regional Victoria (inc. Geelong/Barwon Heads) is currently on the Third Step of the government’s roadmap to recovery. This is affecting the Club’s normal operations.

Unfortunately residents of the Melbourne metropolitan area are still unable to travel intrastate to the Club.

 


The current situation at the Club is:

 

The Clubhouse has reopened to members (only) under restricted operating conditions in accordance with Step 3 of the government's roadmap to recovery.

At this stage members (only) are able to play on the main course and use the practice facilities (density restrictions apply).

Member’s guests will be allowed on Mondays and Fridays (all day) and on Sundays (afternoons only) beginning Monday 28th September. This arrangement has been made on the proviso that when Melbourne metropolitan restrictions ease, access to guests may be stopped, or significantly limited, to ensure the maximum opportunity for Melbourne-based members to access the course.

Due to high demand, reciprocal club and green fee players are currently unable to access the course. We look forward to welcoming back these guests when pressure on the timesheet eases. The situation will be reviewed regularly.

Green fee players and reciprocal club members can enquire about booking a round on the main course at a future date by clicking on this link.  

The Par-3 courses has not yet reopened for public play but members may bring guests.

The accommodation facilities within the Clubhouse remain closed until further notice.

We welcome your accommodation enquiry either by telephone 03 5255 6255 or through the contact us page on the website. We expect strong demand during late spring / early summer. Tee times will be limited.

If you have an existing booking and would like to cancel or discuss, please contact reservations on 03 5255 6255. You can also email info@barwonheads.golf

If you’re a regular guest and your annual group booking was cancelled, please contact reservations to express your interest in retaining your regular dates for 2021. The reservations team will contact group leaders with existing bookings as their dates approach.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to welcoming back all our guests in the not-too-distant future.

 


 

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.  

 

Complimentary golf for up to two guests with Sunday-Thursday B&B packages is available during June, July and August. Save up to $240 on green fees per twin room.

 

The Region

Bellarine Peninsula, Geelong, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

“Noted in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 global ‘Best in Travel’ destinations in 2017 The Bellarine Peninsula has been a destination of choice for Melburnians looking for a laid-back escape from the city for generations. The Bellarine is a ferry ride from the Mornington Peninsula and a convenient place to touch down for a couple of nights before continuing on to the Great Ocean Rd.”
