For years, the ‘emerald of The Bellarine’ has been a much revered ‘go to’ course for a top round outside the comfort zone of a home course for visitors and locals alike. Having recently catapulted up ten places to a ranking of 78 in Australia’s Top 100 Courses, the Curlewis course itself is seductive yet deceptively challenging. Watered year-round via an onsite, state-of-the-art water reclamation plant, the lush greens and undulating fairways are known to lull players into a false sense of security yet no one should take Curlewis for granted. This par-72, links-style playground has gained tremendous respect for taking down even the most seasoned of golfers. The recent introduction of GolfBoards – a cool fusion between a golf cart, snowboard and Segway – has been an exciting addition for public access players. GolfBoards are a unique, fun addition to a classic golf round and Curlewis is one of the first golf clubs in Australia to have secured these hip transporters. Curlewis Golf Club’s popular, highly respected PGA Pro, Steve Brodie and Pro- Shop team welcomes players of all standards – whether it be holiday makers wanting to fine-tune a particular aspect of their game or locals signing up for one of the many group clinic options which caters for all ages and abilities. Carts and clubs are readily available to hire. The recently refurbished clubhouse too, is commanding both attention and swelling visitation - and not just for golfers. With spectacular vistas spanning the You Yangs, Corio Bay and beyond, it’s both hip and welcoming - a great place to relax and enjoy the full bar, coffee, snacks, lunch and in the Curlewis Golf Club OPENTOTHEPUBLIC THE PALMS GOLF COURSE IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND OFFERS AN EXCITING OPEN COMPETITION EVERY SATURDAY FOR $99 PER PERSON.
