Tournament Golf Courses
Barwon Heads Golf Club
The Barwon Heads Golf Club is carved into the natural dune landscape and promises a golfing challenge to be long remembered and a visual feast never to be forgotten. The nearby Bass Strait sand dunes and undulating terrain provide an experience reminiscent of famed Scottish links courses. While not especially long golfers of all standards will be tested by cleverly positioned hazards, subtle slopes and greens, along with challenging tee positions. Current course rankings:
13th Beach - Creek Course
Tony Cashmore designed the Creek Course in conjunction with 6 time major championship winner Sir Nick Faldo. It is characterised by gently undulating couch fairways, deep bunkers, firm greens surrounded by interesting bumps, swales and hollows, as well as plenty of greenside bunkering in the best traditions of Melbourne's Sand Belt. There are some quirky elements too, like the 'square cut' tees, the creek itself, and the creative use of a few remaining pines in hole strategy.
13th Beach - Beach Course
The Beach Course has been voted in the country’s top 25 golf courses (Golf Australia magazine) and the 8th best public access facility (Golf Australia magazine, 2009). The course is playable by golfers of all levels with beautifully manicured fairways, greens and bunkers and a strategic design that offers the ultimate in risk reward golf for even the most elite of players. But perhaps the key feature of The Beach Course is its wonderful set of par 3's. Starting at the brutal 180m 3rd hole to the dainty yet sinister 113m 16th, the par threes of The Beach Course offer golfers of all levels a true test of their iron play, yet are mouth watering to the eye.
The Sands at Torquay
The Sands Torquay golf course is a unique 18-hole links style championship golf course that has been moulded into the sand dunes. Designed by Australia’s world-ranked professional golfer, Stuart Appleby, this course offers a championship challenge for the low handicapper and an enjoyable challenge for the weekend golfer. With up to five tee positions on every hole and over 100 carefully positioned bunkers, it certainly lives up to its name and is a testament to the architectural commitment and passion of its designer.
Perched on the northern headland of Torquay nestled against the dunes and at the start of the world famous Great Ocean Road, Peppers The Sands Resort is a sleek and modern premium golf resort destination. The resort boasts spacious rooms with tasteful furnishings and premium facilities. Studio Rooms feature an ensuite, private balcony or terrace and all the modern comforts you would expect including a flat screen TV, DVD Player and Mini hi fi system.
* If you would prefer sole occupancy of your hotel room, a single supplement is available – details available on request.
