GOLF RETURNS wednesday 13th may 2020

The Premier of Victoria the Hon.Daniel Andrews MP has announced today that outdoor exercise in groups up to 10 people is permitted from 11:59pm on Tuesday 12th May, with physical distancing.

The Premier stated that "more of the outdoor recreational activities that so many Victorians have been missing will also be allowed: walking groups, fishing, hiking – and yes, even a game of golf. These activities will be subject to physical distancing to help keep people safe."

Accordingly, The Barwon Heads Golf Club will reopen for play on Wednesday 13th May.

The Club developed a set of plans prior to this announcement to determine the safest and most appropriate way to open the course for play once the COVID-19 state of emergency restrictions were removed. These plans were ratified by the Committee at their meeting on Friday 1st May.

REturn to Play - Timesheet Format

  • Members only
  • Play in fours
  • 10 minute intervals
  • Optional daily mixed gender competitions
  • Members can book individually or as a group
  • Timesheet opening times- see table below
  • Provisional Members restricted from playing on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until after 1:00pm and Saturdays from 3:30pm.

Due to the expected demand and reduced availability of tee times, members are requested to play no more than two rounds of golf per week. Any member who is able to play weekdays rather than weekends is encouraged to do so, enabling more members to play. 

With many of Australia's golf clubs using the MiClub golf booking system, please be patient as there will be high demand, which may cause delays in the booking process.
