The Experience

An overnight stay in the Clubhouse combined with a round the following morning is one of Australia’s best golf experiences.

Stay a little longer and enjoy all that Barwon Heads and the Bellarine has to offer.

 


The current situation at the Club due to COVID-19 is:

 

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 Clubhouse is open and operating in accordance with the government's COVID-19 regulations. Patron limits apply and contact details are required for tracing purposes. Members can view this post for more information.

All patrons are reminded to follow the COVIDSafe Principles when visiting the Club:

  • From 11.59pm, Friday 26th February 2021, face masks are no longer mandatory inside the Clubhouse or in the Pro Shop. However, you must always carry a face mask with you when you leave home unless you have a lawful reason not to, and it is strongly recommended you wear one whenever you cannot keep 1.5 metres distance from others.

  • Maintain physical distance at all times (1.5 metres).

  • Practice good hand hygiene.

  • Don’t go to work unwell (or the Club).

  • Cough and sneeze into tissue or elbow.

The main course and the practice facilities are open. The Pro Shop is also open (patron limit 10). 

Members' guests are permitted on most days but only after competition times on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. 

The course is also open to green fee players, but due to member demand tee times are limited.

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.  

Players must also conform to other government restrictions such as carrying a mask and maintaining social distance at all times.

The Par-3 course has re-opened to all, however, there can be no walk-ups. Every player must be registered on the timesheet prior to play.

Members can do this themselves, online or by calling the Pro Shop to make a booking. Non-members must book via the Pro Shop (5255 6255).

Players must also conform to other government restrictions such as carrying a mask and maintaining social distance at all times.

Juniors who are registered in the Club's Aces program will receive updates via email regarding future sessions.

Autumn / Winter 

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

“Previously noted in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 global ‘Best in Travel’ destinations, 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.”
