The Best Golf Club Geelong And Surrounding Areas

As the golf course Geelong locals and visitors have on their must-visit list, here at Lonsdale Links we have recently unveiled our newly transformed 18-hole links course. Open to the public, the new course was designed by OCM and inspired by trailblazer Charles Blair Macdonald and his colleagues Seth Raynor and Charles Banks, who built America’s first great golf course, The National Golf Links. The land at Lonsdale Links is similar to that of The National Golf Links in Long Island. The course has been designed with templates and as a deliberate throwback to an earlier age, creating a very unique look for Australia. This is one of the reasons why those seeking to play golf Geelong and surrounding areas, choose to visit Lonsdale Links. We look forward to welcoming you. Book a tee time online or call our friendly team on (03) 5258 1955.

The Golf Course Geelong Locals And Visitors Love

Situated in Point Lonsdale on the Bellarine Peninsula, Lonsdale Links is just half an hour’s drive from Geelong. Our par-70 course is positioned across coastal dunes and is next to the picturesque Lake Victoria, which offers beautiful sunset views. The course is a strategic one and both seasoned golfers and beginners will find it challenging. Each time you tee off at the golf course Geelong locals and visitors love, you’ll find it reveals more of itself and you’ll plot new ways around the course. Possessing plenty of character, the course features fast, bouncy fairways, challenging green complexes and of course, plenty of wind. As the golf club Geelong locals prefer, we offer several membership options to suit all ages and lifestyles. A membership gives you additional benefits, including competition play, social calendar of events and reciprocal rights at clubs across Australia. We are also open to the public and welcome players of all levels to join us.

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.
