Golf in Torquay

Magnificent golf courses with ocean and bush land views, luxury accommodation, day spas and fabulous food…you can live it up like a golf pro when visiting the Great Ocean Road.

Breathe in the fresh coastal air, get a good dose of Vitamin D and challenge yourself at several top-notch courses, including the Warrnambool Golf Course – home to global golfing great, Mark Leishman. 

Plan your very own golf tour with friends – or take the entire family who’ll have a ball on the different kinds of mini-golf courses. 

Stay a while at one town or do a road trip! There’s no need to travel far from Melbourne to test your golf game and enjoy the breathtaking natural attractions of the Great Ocean Road at the same time. 

Not that you need the excuse in Torquay, but what a brilliant way to get amongst the natural beauty. Imagine yourself teeing off to the sounds of crashing waves, or that perfect approach with a flock of striking cockatoos flying above. Relaxation at its best! 

Torquay has two golf courses, both offering 18 holes and incredible club facilities.  

RACV Torquay Golf Club

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. This fully irrigated Par 71 golf course features wide-open couch fairways, undulating greens, fescue roughs, wetlands and ocean views. 

With stunning beach views and wide-open fairways, this picturesque par 71 golf course may not be the longest, but it will test you on every hole! Especially when the wind picks up. It’s worth staying a few days because you have everything you need: luxurious accommodation with views of the ocean or golf course, a restaurant open all day and even an onsite spa where you can get a massage or have a hot soak. There’s also direct access from the resort to the beach. 

The Sands Torquay

The Sands Torquay was recently rated in the top 100 Golf courses in Australia by Golf Digest magazine. The Sands Torquay is a private golf club, boasting an 18 hole championship golf course complimented by five star facilities. Guests are welcome so reserve your tee time and experience golf at its finest.
