Course Overview

Course Overview

The Links at Barwon Heads regularly rates in Australia’s top golf courses. In the 2019 Golf Course Guide it is rated Australia’s 7th best, up one spot from its 2018 ranking.

The nearby Bass Strait and sand dunes along with the weather conditions provide a course reminiscent of famed Scottish links. The undulating terrain, in harmony with the natural features of the land will ensure that you will remember time spent at Barwon Heads.

While not especially long, the Links will test golfers of all standards with cleverly positioned hazards, subtle slopes and greens, along with challenging tee positions. The wind ensures that the course rarely plays the same way twice in the one week.

The turf is maintained to the highest standard and in the summer a local species of couch grass dominates the fairways. In the cooler months the species of Poa Annua provides an excellent fairway cover.

The greens are predominantly of Poa Annua and it is our practice they are prepared every morning, so a true and fast surface is virtually assured.
