Curlewis Golf Club

Geelong & The Bellarine

Top 50 (and climbing!) for a reason 


Curlewis is regarded as one of the most progressive and exciting public access golf courses in Australia.  Long hailed as the ‘emerald’ of The Bellarine, an ongoing suite of initiatives and improvements continue at the golf club that is redefining Australian golf and the concepts of community activity and fun.  This dynamic golf club is giving members – and green fee players alike – exactly what they want on a number of levels.

Curlewis continues to catapult up all Australian official rankings.

The much loved Curlewis course itself is seductive yet deceptively challenging.  Watered year-round via an onsite water reclamation plant, the large and true greens with undulating sand belt-like fairways are known to lull players into a false sense of security yet no one in their right mind should take Curlewis for granted.  This 72 par, links-style playground commands respect and can take down even the most seasoned of golfers.  Ongoing improvements to the course continue to delight all that step out to tackle these hallowed fairways.

For those who like cruising the fairways in style and comfort, an elite fleet of Club Cart luxury carts await.  Or perhaps grab a Tempo Walk to escort you around the course, Curlewis is the first in Victoria to offer these cool club ‘caddies’.

Popular and highly respected is the full time, in house PGA Pro, Steve Brodie.  Both Steve and the Curlewis Pro-Shop team welcomes players of all standards.  A passionate, talented pennant cohort as well as an innovative Junior Development Program (complimentary for all Junior members) completes the membership picture here alongside seriously popular Women’s Introductory Clinics.


When it comes to facilities, functions and epicurean experience, the new Curlewis Golf Club & Resort is next level.   Commanding in both scope and ambience, no detail or expense has been spared in bringing The Bellarine’s newest and most dynamic destination to life.

Add to that an accommodation complex like no other. Cool eco-suite installations are nestled amidst indigenous native landscape, flanking one of the region’s most revered golf courses.  Sleeping up to 126, this is no ordinary sleepover, this is Curlewis.  “Experience exceptional” is the tagline and pride abounds in the delivery.  Luxe and contemporary, each room features a private balcony, custom robes, divine bedding and guarantees every creature comfort is catered for.

Enter the Curlewis Clubhouse.  Inside and out, charisma abounds.  Embrace spectacular views spanning fairways, greens and bay.
Meander past the “Warhol Wall”.  Immerse yourself in chill mojo on the grand veranda or sun drenched East Terrace.  Cutting edge AV facilities, an array of epicurean options to suit all budgets and tastes complete the picture.

Ivor’s Spike Bar is home to a more intimate, relaxed occasion.  Signature restaurant and larger function facility, Claribeaux, will delight with its’ creative structural form and culinary options – French influence, contemporary fusion and a keen focus on sustainable local produce.  An impressive local and international beverage list guarantees a state of blissful indecision.

At the western end of the hallowed Curlewis fairways is The Range @ Curlewis Driving Range facility and entertainment complex of epic proportions.  Featuring 18 indoor/outdoor driving bays, Victoria’s 1st Toptracer Range facility, a cool two tiered Mini Golf course and X Golf, great dining is also assured alongside bucket loads of fun (or finesse, for those seeking to fine tune their golf form).
