Welcome To The New Bellarine Peninsula Golf Course

Welcome to Lonsdale Links! The Bellarine Peninsula golf course has been redesigned as a deliberate throwback to an earlier age. Featuring an exciting layout unique for Australia, the Bellarine Peninsula golf course winds around salt marshes and wetlands and spreads out across coastal dunes beside the picturesque Lake Victoria. The par-70 course boasts bouncy fairways, strong winds and challenging green complexes, making Lonsdale Links ideal for even the most accomplished player.

The intention was to create a strategic course, which reveals more of itself each time you play golf Bellarine Peninsula. Drawing inspiration from trailblazer, Charles Blair Macdonald, and his colleagues Seth Raynor and Charles Banks, course architects Ogilvy Cocking Mead (OCM) designed the Bellarine golf course as a deliberate throwback with template holes featuring throughout. Elements of these templates and the holes that inspired them can be found in the design at Lonsdale Links, including the opening hole ‘Alps’, which commands sweeping views over Lake Victoria and encourages players to take on the dune off the tee to enter the first square green. Other inspired template holes include Biarritz, Plateau, Eden, Leven, Punchbowl, Thumbprint, Redan and Road.

Play Golf Bellarine Peninsula

Lonsdale Links is an 18-hole links golf course located in the coastal dunes of Point Lonsdale and bordering the beautiful Lake Victoria. The recently redeveloped Bellarine Peninsula golf course is now open and available to play. The new design takes advantage of the sweeping vistas across both new and old holes. In addition, we have a new practice range and 6-hole par-3 course named ‘Mulligans’.

Under the new Government restrictions, we are now able to seat 30 people inside the Clubhouse and 100 outside for fully vaccinated patrons. We are still running a limited snack lunch menu every day and pizza for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights as well as takeaway. We are still operating on a walk-in basis for dining in.

We look forward to being able to reintroduce our Bistro menu and bookings once the 80% double dose vaccination target is reached!

We appreciate your understanding as we navigate these changes 🙏

Hole 12 – Thumbprint

A green with a large indent in its centre, shaped almost as if a thumb had been pressed deeply into its middle. Such thumbprint greens were a common feature of the ‘short’ template hole commonly used by Macdonald and Raynor in the early 20th century, with the best examples found at Sleepy Hollow (New York), 10th at Chicago GC and the 6th at the National Golf Links of America. Three distinct pin positions here, left, centre or right with the centre in the middle of the thumbprint probably being the easiest. Any shot running off the back is punished so the play is to be short.

Hole 11 – Punchbowl

The long 11th can switch between being a par 4 or 5 and plays around the Southern border of the property with views across farmland and the coastal dunes. The tee shot often plays straight into the wind, so this hole plays longer than the card suggests and the large sandy blow-out on the right guards the shortest route to the green. Be sure to check the sign at the tee to find the pin position for the day as the putting surface is blind with just a narrow gap in the dunes as the entrance to the green.

Hole 10 – Lookout

Perched on the edge of the 9th dune this tee shot plays across the edge of a deep valley.

The lookout at the back of the tee provides a terrific view across the course and to the nearby lighthouse as well as seeing if play has cleared ahead. Be sure to avoid the trench style bunker on the corner of the dogleg… its deep and difficult and many have unraveled from in here. The green is small with the easiest pin positions near the front and most difficult up the plateau in the back left, corner.
