Introducing Golf The Bellarine

Posted on: 19 February

We’re excited to share that Lonsdale Links is part of a new golfing body Golf The Bellarine, joining forces with our friends at 13th Beach Golf Links, Barwon Heads Golf Club, Curlewis Golf Club, Portarlington Golf Club and Queenscliff Golf Club to showcase golf in our incredible region.

Golf The Bellarine was formed just over 12 months ago with the aim to increase golf tourism and visitation to the area. Basically, to put the Bellarine on the maps and bucket lists of golfers everywhere. A quiet achiever but a hidden gem, the Bellarine has typically been considered the lesser-known golfing peninsula in Victoria. So, Golf the Bellarine aims to showcase everything that makes golf here distinctive. Our undulating, windswept dunes. Stands of tea tree and Moonah framing seaside holes. Lakes, creeks and inlets cleverly interwoven into the golf experience. And our welcoming clubhouses where golf gives way to great times spent together.

Golf The Bellarine has just reached a major milestone, in collaboration with Will Watt from Contours Golf, launching it’s first ever website and flagship event ‘The Epic’. The Epic is a 54 hole tournament across three courses kicking off right here at Lonsdale Links, and a golf event that will elevate your Bellarine experience and have you coming back year after year.

For a week in May, you can sample our regions spectacular coastal scenery, dabble in our award-winning winery and brewery culture, then indulge in a selection of extraordinary dining experiences. And if too much golf isn’t enough, Golf the Bellarine will help take you even further than the tournament itself to ensure you get the most from this world-class golfing destination.

Golf, Bellarine style, is a place where challenging, beautiful courses meet good company and good cheer. Where local members happily share all we have to offer with visitors who soon feel like family.

All six clubs have each contributed to Bellarine golf for generations. Now, through Golf the Bellarine, we’re writing the next chapter together. We invite you to come experience golf’s definitive blend of camaraderie, natural beauty, and timeless play.
