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’.

Lockdown 6.0 has just been announced commencing from 8:00pm tonight. 😫 With this announcement, unfortunately we must close the golf course and clubhouse after tonight's dinner service for at least the next 7 days.

It's a frustrating time for all concerned. We hope that we can re-open on the 13th of August. The phone will be unattended during this time. Any enquiries can be sent to the Reception email -

We hope to see you again soon.

Hole 7 – Gill’s Carry

A short but challenging par 3 if the wind is blowing (which it often is)! The tee shot plays over an easement referred to as Gill Road hence the name Gill’s Carry. The tee shot plays slightly uphill to a green which is perched up like a tabletop which can make it difficult to hold. Surrounded by shortgrass at the rear and right which often suggests a putter is the best method of recovery.

Hole 6 – Eden

This par 3 plays out of a shute of Moonah’s and was inspired by the Eden hole (11th) at the Old Course at St Andrews. For those that know the hole well they may recognise some of its famous elements…. the Cockleshell bunker short and right; the hill to the front left of the green, the Strath bunker nestled into the putting surface and finally the Eden valley at the rear of the green.

As most will be aware, unfortunately we find ourselves in another COVID-19 related lockdown. With this comes the closure of our course and clubhouse from midnight tonight until midnight Tuesday 20th July. Unlike previous lockdowns, we won't offer a takeaway food service this time. The Club will be completely closed for the duration of the lockdown.

As this issue evolves, and we have more certainty about what changes we can make to our service, we will let you know as soon as we can and re-open as soon as we can.

Our phones won't be attended during this period. If you need to contact the Club about anything, please write to our Club email address - and we will respond as soon as possible.

We hope to see you back at the club next Wednesday 🤞

Hole 5 – Victoria

The 5th is set within a pristine environment largely untouched. The Moonah forest to the left, with some specimens older than Australia itself, and the sea rushes to the right creates a wonderful sense of place and a unique setting which contrasts with the high sand dunes later in the round. Line not length is important here…play up the middle and you will be fine……. but perhaps easier said than done!
