Geelong can boast having one of Australia’s oldest golf clubs still on its original site.
Geelong Golf Club was established in 1892 as an 18-hole course, which remained a feature of the Ballarat Road site for 112 years.
The club closed in 2004 but re-opened on the same land in North Geelong two years ago as a boutique nine-hole layout.
The new course has been a hit with golfers, says general manager Paul Christie.
“It’s been very exciting because our membership is growing. It’s been really positive and more people are playing golf on the course.
“It’s unique what we have and what we offer. Anyone who hasn’t played before should come and see what it’s all about.”
With a peaceful forest setting, Geelong Golf Club is ideal for players short on spare time. The nine holes can be completed in 90 minutes, which allows even before or after-work rounds during the week.
“The course also features a stunning nine-hole format that suits all levels of golfers, all just three kilometres from the waterfront,” Paul says.
The club is open seven days a week, with seven-day memberships just $11.52 weekly.
Geelong Golf Club provides options for social, corporate groups and competitive golf. Lessons and clinics are available for juniors, beginners, ladies and even experienced golfers.
The club specialises in packages for corporate days, functions and Christmas break-ups.
A new beer garden is now open on the site for players and guests to socialise and relax.
Tee times and Christmas function bookings and more information are available by phoning the pro shop 4210 1010 or emailing golf@geelonggolf.com.au
