Thirteenth Beach Golf Links
Golfers should make any and every excuse to experience the challenge of this true links golf (pic above). At Great Ocean Air, we offer a charter service to Barwon Heads so you can spend your time on the course, and not in the car!
13th Beach offers two courses; the Beach Course and the Creek Course. The Beach Course is unique in its design. LIke many modern courses, it features a large residential precinct. The course has wonderful links, 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 is characterised by gentle undulating couch fairways, deep bunkers filled with yellow sand, and by firm true greens surrounded by interesting bumps, swales and hollows, all closely mown, as well as plenty of greenside bunkering that cuts into and helps mould the slopes of the putting surfaces in the best traditions of Melbourne's sand Belt.
Set on the stunning Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria, Thirteenth Beach is a 36 hold golf complex and a must for the golf enthusiast.
