Thirteenth Beach Golf Links


Set on the stunning Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria, Thirteenth Beach is a 36 hole golf and
residential complex. The Beach Course by Tony Cashmore features spectacular par 3s and
natural wildlife. The challenging and natural links style course is course is dry all year round,
cutting through the abundant sand dunes and winding around Murtnagurt Lagoon with 3km
ocean frontage. The Beach Course is a wonderful test of any golfer’s ability. Offering everything
that makes golf such a superb game. A golf course that is playable to golfers of all levels with
beautifully manicured fairways, greens and bunkers and a strategic design that offers the
ultimate in risk reward golf for even the most elite of players.

The Creek Course designed by Sir Nick Faldo in conjunction with Tony Cashmore has the feel
of the very best of Melbourne’s sandbelt through its gently rolling terrain and broadly separated
fairways. It is characterised by gently undulating couch fairways, huge, deep bunkers filled with
yellow sand. The greens are true and firm and are surrounded by interesting bumps, swales
and hollows, all closely mow. There is 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. The
native couch fairways have been oversewn with fescues, and this should provide both an
excellent, green playing surface year round, and a quick transition back to couch dominance in
spring. There are some quirky elements too, like the ‘square cut’ tees, the creek itself, and the
creative use of a few remaining pines in hole strategy.

Soft spikes only and neat dress code. Group bookings welcomed. Discounts and memberships
