Golf is more than a game, which is why the best golf courses offer more than just a challenge, they offer an environment. The best golf courses combine the technical with the picturesque, they are well designed and stunningly located. The 13th Beach golf course combines these two elements perfectly. Located on the coastline of the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria, the course offers majestic views from every hole and it has being voted in the country’s top 25 golf courses by Golf Australia magazine.
There are two courses at the Thirteenth Beach golf course, The Beach Course and The Creek Course.
The Beach Course has a unique and exciting design that is guaranteed to intrigue and interest all players. Like many modern golf courses, The Beach Course features a large residential precinct. The first four holes play away from the clubhouse, making their way through a number of houses. It is the fifth tee when the houses drop away and the course begins to reveal its special nature. From the fifth golfers discover wonderful links land, rolling through a series of dramatic and natural golf holes that look and feel like they were there long before a golf development was planned.
The Creek Course was designed by Tony Cashmore in conjunction with 6 time major championship winner Sir Nick Faldo, is a wonderful complement to The Beach Course. It boasts gently undulating couch fairways with huge, deep bunkers filled with yellow sand. The greens are firm and true, dotted with interesting bumps, swales and hollows, all closely mown, as well as plenty of greenside bunkering that cuts into and helps shape the slopes of all the putting surfaces.
13th Beach golf is what golf should be, challenging and beautiful.
