Set behind a tertiary dune system along Victoria’s Shipwreck Coast, this classically designed Thomson Perrett course features a number of spectacular elevated tees, tree lined fairways and tight driving holes providing an unforgettable golfing experience. The installation of an integrated recycled watering system and an extensive drainage program has ensured this well bunkered course is presented at its best all year round.
But the highlight of a round of golf at Warrnambool Golf Club would have to be a trio of par 4’s on the front nine known as the “Shipwreck Bend”. Starting with the 4th hole, they wind between massive dunes and when standing on the elevated 5th tee you are offered a tantalizing glimpse of the great Southern Ocean just behind the green. Lush green fairways lined with dense ti-tree or scarred sandy wasteland, the Shipwreck Bend is not for the faint-hearted and can cause the best of golf rounds to come to grief. Just like the eighteen shipwrecks purported to have sunk along this treacherous part of the southern Australian coastline. Are you up to the challenge of Shipwreck Bend?
