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’.

The roller coaster ride has continued with the announcement made today that all of Point Lonsdale will come out of lockdown at midnight tonight. Our staff are busy making preparations to reopen the course and clubhouse from tomorrow under the same restrictions that we had prior to the lockdown:

- Attendance at the Club only by those people who don't live in locked down areas. Locked down areas currently include City of Greater Geelong (excluding Point Lonsdale), Surf Coast Shire, Mitchell Shire and Metropolitan Melbourne.
- Social Play in groups of 4.
- 10 people inside and 20 people outside the clubhouse for seated service.

Please note that several of our staff live in Greater Geelong and are not considered essential workers. As such the Club will open with the following services and times:

- Golf Shop open from 7am - 4pm
- Clubhouse open for drinks and light food from 11am-5pm tomorrow and then 9am - 5pm from Friday onwards (please note there are very limited staff available in the front of house, so please be patient for service)
- Reception is closed

We know many of our Members are still in lockdown and are not able to visit the Club. We hope you can join us again soon.

Hole 9 – Leven

The Leven template was first conceived at Lundin Links on Scotland’s Fife coast. A short 4 played to a green positioned on the edge of a dune that runs up the left of the hole.

Our version features the same dune along the left and an out of bound fence down the right which must be played close to in order to have the best angle into the green.

Hole 8 – Drop Off

The fairway at the 8th tips off severely from left to right and down towards a natural pond hence the name “drop off”. The smallish green is often best suited to a running approach and care is needed to keep the ball under the hole. Anything above the pin makes for a difficult two putt.
