Review by: Winchelsea Golf Club
The course is an 18 hole 5317 metre – par rated 67 course, the course is 9 hole layout played from multi tee positions. the fairways and grass greens have been extensively renovated since 2010,and a recycled water system along with dam provide the club water security to improve the course.
The signature hole on the course is perhaps one of the most unique holes in Victoria. Called the quarry hole, it is constructed in the bottom of a disused bluestone quarry. This means you are unsighted to the green from the tee. You have to hit over a screen of olive tree in front of the quarry, but once over the only place is the bottom of the pit. The next assignment is to put your ball in the small hole. People have travelled long distances just to play Winchelsea because of the quarry hole. Some older locals used to call it the Aquarium. This name comes from the time of the racecourse when the quarry had a pond in the bottom of it and ducks reside there.

Review by: Torquay Sands Golf Club
This well maintained course has been designed by Stuart Appleby and it has been suggested that this course is one of the most challenging in Victoria. With various bunkers and holes bordering the foreshore reserve this course ensures a challenging round. The signature hole is the 11th; with high focus a par is possible. Open 7 days with on site accommodation, restaurant and bar.

Tony Cashmore and Sir Nick Faldo later designed The Creek Course which is a wonderful complement to The Beach Course. The signature hole is the 7th on the Beach Course.

Review by: I Seek Golf
First saw this couirse whilst on a dog walk and thought it looked pretty straight and average. Soon after I had a game and was surprised by the enjoyment I got from it.
Some basic holes towards the end of the 9 holes but the first 3 holes are very good. The 3rd would be the pick of them with the green/s (it is more or less a 10 hole course)perched right up on the point overlooking the beach (as are numerous tees ).
Fairways & greens in pretty good condition for this type of course.
They make good use of the small amount of land available to them with well placed tees to add some variety if playing 18 holes.
Good value for $12 for 9 holes.
This course has nine greens and utilizes two teeing areas for each hole.
The course is fairly short in comparison to todays standard but can be a real challenge in windy conditions as it is right on the coast line.
Always maintained in very good condition.
Well worth playing while on your travels along the Great Ocean Road. Enjoy.

Review by: Anglesea Golf Club
The Anglesea Golf Club was formed on Saturday, January 28th, 1950, at a public meeting held at the Boat Shed on the Anglesea River. Initially, the club acquired 140 acres of virgin land: 90 acres donated by Nicholas O'Donohue, and 50 acres purchased from Mr. P. Harvey. In March 1962, another 82 acres of land on the western and northern boundaries of the course was purchased from Mr O'Donohue.
The early beginnings of the Clubhouse (19th hole) started with an Old Tin Shed, completed by Les Hedley in 1953. Subsequently, different stages of development took place from 1955 to 1991. The 1st Stage (Clubhouse) was officially opened on the 1st of July, 1955.
The 2nd Stage was opened by the President of the Victorian Golf Association, Mr. Alec A. Brahe in December of 1965. The 3rd Stage of extensions and alterations, was completed in September 1974. The developments included the addition of a Professional Shop and buggy room, cool rooms for the bar and kitchen, new offices, a covered walkway, and extensions of the dining room and bar serving area.
The 4th Stage, involving major renovations and extensions, was completed in 1991 and officially opened by the Victorian Minister for Sport and Recreation, Mr Neil Tresize on Saturday, February 16th, 1991. Recently, in December 2003, the Clubhouse was renovated and can now accommodate more than 180 members in the bistro/lounge area
Today Anglesea offers a challenging 6028 metre, 18 hole course with wintergreen couch fairways, along with 4 practice fairways, 2 putting greens, 2 chipping greens and practice nets.
We offer Golf Club and Cart Hire, tuition with our Club Professionals and Golf Clinics.
