With some of the most highly rated public access courses in Australia located within the Great Ocean Road region it’s little wonder many of the visitors who arrive are toting a set of golf clubs.

Golf in Torquay

Set within the backdrop of the Torquay and Jan Juc beaches, The RACV Torquay Golf Club is a challenging course for all golfers. The 18-hole traditional links-style golf course was redeveloped by Ogilvy Clayton, a Melbourne design team headed by former US Open champion Geoff Ogilvy and Mike Clayton, winner of many Australian and International tournaments. This fully irrigated Par 71 golf course features wide-open couch fairways, undulating greens, fescue roughs, wetlands and ocean views.

Golf in Anglesea

Play a round at Anglesea with its resident kangaroo population, a must for anyone from abroad. These iconic Australian native animals live in the nearby forest and spend their days as unofficial green-keepers lounging on the fairways.
