Uniquely Australian, the Anglesea Golf Course is renowned as one of the country’s most picturesque. The 18-hole course is set amidst native bushland, and is home to over three hundred kangaroos, who graze the fairways daily.
During early morning and late afternoon, the flocks of between fifty and a hundred kangaroos invariably present a ‘hazard’ to golfers on some fairways. Occasionally, golfers have struck kangaroos with golf balls on their drives; and, on one notable occasion, a member’s fairway shot found the pouch of a kangaroo, who nonchalantly hopped away!
The Golf Club was formed in 1950, and is now established with all the facilities for an enjoyable game of golf – practice putting greens, practice fairways and warm up nets, a Pro Shop with all modern equipment and gear, buggies and motorised golf carts for hire, and a clubhouse equipped with bar, bistro and gaming machines.
