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.

Hole 16 – Road

Either played as a long 3 or a short 4 this hole was inspired by the famous road hole at the Old Course at St Andrews. In theory, the approach is a little easier from the left but no matter where the pitch is played from, care must be taken to avoid the out of bounds fence that sits against the green and the ‘Road hole’ inspired bunker on the right. Although this bunker may seem small, its sphere of influence is quite large, with the surrounding contours funneling many running approach shots into the sand.

Hole 15 – Samphire

Named Samphire after the low growing succulent that covers the salt marsh on the left of the hole, this is a Cape style hole where the approach to the green is shorter the closer your drive finishes to the salt marsh. A unique green that is almost square and a throwback to the days where some putting surfaces in the UK shaped that way as a result of the fences used to keep the sheep out!

Hole 14 – Reverse Redan

A hole designed to sit amongst the old Moonah trees on what was the neighboring farmland, the ground naturally sloped from left to right which we felt was perfectly suited to a reverse Redan.
The original Redan tilted from right to left but a feature of that hole and this one is the green that slopes from front to back. Guarded by a short-left waste bunker and a right green side bunker, the ideal shot lands close to the front edge of the putting surface and uses the large mound on the left to feed the ball down towards the pin.
