After golf, guests can take advantage of the Club's ideal location in the seaside village of Barwon Heads. The boutiques and cafes of the village are only a short stroll down the road and the beach is so close many rooms have ocean views. There is so much to do on the Bellarine. Water activities abound, ranging from gentle bay beaches that are great for families and fishing to sensational surf beaches and world-class scuba diving sites. The Peninsula has also been building a reputation as a food and wine destination and the Bellarine Taste Trail brings together many of the gourmet offerings of the region including wineries, restaurants and cafes and producers of beer, fresh produce, goats cheese, olive oil and seafood. See http://www.visitgeelongbellarine.com.au/ for more information. For day-trips, the ferry from Queenscliff to Sorrento is not far away or a drive along the famed Great Ocean Road is a grand experience.
Note: When available, there may be a special promotion offered titled 'Course Coring Special'.
The Barwon Heads Golf Club is renowned for its exceptional greens. To achieve this standard, biannual maintenance called ‘course coring’ is carried out that affects the greens for a few days. The greens are still perfectly playable, just not as exceptional as usual.
There are still the immaculate fairways, Par 3 course, practice facilities, tennis courts, Clubhouse, billiards, dining facilities and acclaimed BHGC hospitality to enjoy.
