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.

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!

Winter ain’t so bad...😍 ...

Hole 4 – Buckley’s Chance

A knee trembling tee shot with the salt marsh left and Lake Victoria to the right. The best line from the tee is down the right as it leaves a significant better angle into this narrow green. The smart play is a mid to long iron but if feeling confident a well struck drive can get very close to or even on the green, but anything offline is an almost certain bogey…or worse.

Mulligans will be open for play all day tomorrow from 9.30am! This is your last chance to play our 6 Hole, Par 3 course until the September school holidays.
Visitors welcome - $10 for Adults and $5 for Kids.

Hole 3 – Plateau
This hole is played over ground once mined for shells and evidence of this can be seen in the exposed pits that border the fairway. The main obstacle to avoid is the salt marsh down the left which runs the full length of the hole and a reminder of what this ground looked like centuries ago. Whilst the ideal line for the second shot is dependent on the pin position of the day, the preferred line is close to, or over, the ‘Principal Nose’ bunkers on the left. A putting surface with three obvious plateaus, this green took inspiration from the ‘double plateau’ concept often used by Charles Blair Macdonald and Seth Raynor.
