The Yarra Bend Golf Course is situated in Yarra Bend Park, only 4 kms from the Melbourne CBD. The majestic Yarra River hugs the edges of this scenic course, providing picturesque views of the river and rocky cliffs.

Well known as one of Melbourne’s premier public courses for years, Yarra Bend features the highest quality greens and sculptured fairways. The course provides different levels of challenge to satisfy the avid golfer, whilst providing an enjoyable game for beginners.

A feature of the course are the par 3 holes. These holes provide an opportunity for you to quest for the perfect tee shot straight to the elevated greens. If you are short from the tee, an exciting up-and-down approach is needed to hit the green.

On the par 4 holes (2nd, 6th 12th and 15th), your drive will be over a small crest. Follow your ball down and see the hole open up to a sunken green, with a backdrop of steep escarpments, the river and bushland.

A fully stocked On-Course Pro Shop is located at Yarra Bend and offers a range of clubs, bags, clothing and other accessories for all golfers. At the Cafe you will find cappucinos, hot food, sandwiches, cold drinks and other snacks.

Hadn't played here since the layout changes, the course is in good nick, well worth the visit. Scenic layout along the Yarra river, not overly long but the small greens compensate for the shortness. Highlight is the downhill par 5 on the back nine which is home to a colony of flying foxes.

This is the best Melbourne public course that I have played by far! A beautiful course, well maintained & a good challenge. Had a very enjoyable day with 3 locals who invited me into their group. Pro Shop & facilities were also very good. The whole experience exceeded my expectations!

People Expect far too much from a public Golf Course!

For a public Course Yarra Bend is absolutely spectacular. The course is maintained beautifully, I must mention how fantastic the practice facilities are too.

As someone who plays this course every week my only complaint is against those who play the course not those who run it:

if your group of 4 is slow and there is a 2 ball behind you for the love of god let them through!

Do not drag your trolley across the green!

Do not drive your cart on the green!

If you drive onto the incorrect fairway the group playing that hole has right of way!

I'm happy to report in recent weeks that staff have been driving the course encouraging slow players to speed up.

If you want to be a golf snob who complains about everything go pay big $$$$ and join a club.

Public Course practically located. Not the hardest course one could play. Bunkers need work. Now for the experience... 3hrs 15mins for 9 holes before we walked off, no staff at the tee off, or out encouraging speed of play. When we brought it to their attention, they actually wanted to argue with us! They then went back to watching cricket. I will never play this course again due to the obnoxious staff, whom hopefully soon recognise that they WORK IN A PRO SHOP!! It's only a couple of dollars and KM more for a better round of golf on all accounts. Management hopefully to sort.

Slow and bumpy greens, all bunkers gur, $$32 green fees for a pig of a course which is alway busy... Spend some money on getting the bunkers and greens up to scratch. I vowed to never play here again but the course discount book with 2 for one tricked me into it. I don't really see a reason to go back here. Royal park is kept in better condition than this joke.
