Bay Views Golf Course

Introducing the all new BAY VIEWS GOLF COURSE - ROSEBUD

bay views rosebud

One of Australia’s most scenic courses has undergone a significant facelift and is being launched with a new identity to reflect the change in management and significant improvements to course presentation.
Bay Views Golf Course (formerly known as Rosebud Public or Carrington Park) located in Rosebud on the Mornington Peninsula is a public access course offering panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay, Bass Strait and the entire Mornington Peninsula. The clubhouse has undergone a complete renovation and now boasts a large alfresco balcony to enjoy a snack and cold drink before or after the game and new bathroom facilities. Significantly, the course is reaping the rewards of significant investment with the lush santa anna couch fairways as healthy as ever and the smooth, quick putting surfaces thriving.
The popular social group venue still maintains a separate picnic area with multiple electric barbeques and shelters perfect for groups wanting to self cater and BYO. “The picnic areas are extremely popular with groups and we wanted to maintain this offer for those groups who have enjoyed self catering over the years. But we also wanted to provide an alternative option for those players to relax and take in the amazing views offered from the clubhouse that was previously underutilised” according to Operations Manager Dean Trobbiani. “The change of name was an important decision for us but one we thought was essential for us to create our own identity and long term vision. “The licensed clubhouse also offers a relaxed feel with self cooked barbeque or a selection from a snack menu including traditional golfer favourites such as pizzas. We really do offer the best of both worlds!”
Importantly, green fee prices are extremely affordable for such high quality conditions with 18 holes just $45, with concession rates now available midweek excluding peak periods.

The outward nine (par 36) covers 2833 metres and combines an excellent mixture of short a long holes that criss cross the lower levels of the Rosebud Park Reserve. The inward nine (measuring 2435 metres) meanders its way up to the highest points on the course and incorporates three par 3’s and just the one (but unforgettable) par five that often makes you forget about your game and studying huge cargo ships navigate Port Phillip Bay!
It’s impossible not to be amazed at the panoramic vistas offered at many points on the course, in particular from the very start of your round as you prepare for your opening tee shot on the elevated first tee. Similarly mesmerising views are captured from the green of short par four 12th hole, 13th tee and fairway, and 18th green amongst others!
Other notable additions under the new management regime at Rosebud Public include an internal renovation of the Pro Shop where visitors can sit down and enjoy a cold or hot drink (the pro shop is licensed to serve alcohol) and further renovations are currently in planning stages with a large alfresco deck that will double the current seating capacity whilst taking advantage of the 180 degree views of Port Phillip Bay and the southern Mornington Peninsula.  The popular picnic and barbeque area remains ensuring groups have the best of both worlds should they wish to self cater and BYO for consumption in the area after their round.
A fleet of motorised carts ensures those who want to cruise around in comfort are catered for, whilst a range of excellent value fees are available including 5 round multi visit, 5 and 7 season passes and Pay As You Go passes offering heavily discounted fees on each visit.
Whatever you call it, Rosebud Public is one of those courses that continues to amaze for all the right reasons, and for those that haven’t played there for a while, they continue to ask themselves why not!
