9 Holes
PAR 70
5309 M


Lorne Country Club sits high above the beautiful beachside resort town of Lorne.

Its facilities include a clubhouse, 9-hole golf course and 6 en-tout-cas tennis courts.

The views over Louttit Bay and the Southern Ocean from the clubhouse and parts of the golf course are absolutely spectacular.

The club is only 2 kilometres from the town centre.

Just follow the Deans Marsh Road towards Colac, turn left at Howard St and keep going up until you reach the club.

Measures 2662m Par 35 with three par 3s ranging from 124-143m, four par 4s ranging from 275-398m and two par 5s ranging from 455-480m. Course is very lush, with slowish greens. Teeboxes are bumpy and a little bare. Course is quite hilly, but its views from the clubhouse overlooking the ocean and town are superb. The 480m 1st opens as a blind tee shot which needs to be played to the left. There is 2 fairway bunkers right and lots of trees and dam all not visible from the tee. There are 3 bunkerless holes: the 455m par 5 3rd with its sharply sloping fairway to the left, 305m dogleg left 6th and 398m par 4 fairway slightly sloping right with a dam bank on the left 7th. Best holes include the 2 finishing holes: the 358m 8th with 2 fairway bunkers on the left 130m from the green with a small dam between them, with a green guarded by 2 bunkers on the left. Then there is the 124m 9th with 4 bunkers short left and right to a green which slopes towards the ocean. Played here 9/8/2010 and I don't think 18 holes is needed here, especially with its hilly terrain and with much over-rated, but well-maintained Anglesea Golf Club less than 30 minutes up the Great Ocean Road. Needs to improve on its nine holes. All in all not too shabby.

Lorne Country Club is s super spectacular golfing gem , along the Great Ocean Road in the major tourist of Lorne, the course is meticaulously maintained and the views are trully breathtaking, although it is hilly and a number of the holes are quite sloping , if you know the course , there are reasonably flat lies on nearly all holes,and you do get to know where to place your shots after playing a few rounds ,all the greens are quite difficault and a real challenge. Green fees are very reasonable considering the beautiful condition of the course and outside of the main summer holiday period the course is virtually deserted, competion golf is held on Sundays after 12pm (so you can tee off up to 11am),Tuesday Morning have competition,Every second Wednesday , and Friday afternoon as well. The course might become 18 holes, with plans in the pipeline, currently if you play 18 there are 5 seperate tee-off areas, which gives the layout a bit of variation if you go around twice, generally speaking there is a lot of climbing and the course is definately a good physical workout even after 9 holes ,it is like playing 18 at some of Melbournes flatter courses.

Despite the township of Lorne now somewhat of a top-end seaside getaway to rival the great eastern towns of Portsea & Sorrento, the golf course is far removed from such lofty heights. Lorne Golf Club is without doubt a little country track, and as with the best country tracks it has the personality and the quirks to make it both memorable and enjoyable. The course is set high in the hills above the township and greets the golfer with stunning views out across Bass Straight. It is by no means long but seeing as though all holes are cut into severe slopes, apart from teeing off you will no receive flat lies. The greens are good but tricky and to shoot well around here you must have a keen eye for the subtle breaks. A few holes are cut nicely into deep vegetation and there is a relaxing air about the place. There are a few weak holes squashed into the small tract of land and although the views will hold your breath and the slopes keep you on your toes, once around the nine holes of the course is probably enough. As with most quirky country courses there is enough to keep you from shooting the lights out but also enough room to roll in a few birdies. Overall a nice little departure from the 'big time' golf where the little parts of your game are tested.
