The Best Public Golf Course in Metropolitan Melbourne:
Yarra Bend Golf Course
The 18 Hole Yarra Bend Golf Course is a picturesque public access course, located just 10 minutes outside of Melbourne CBD.
Known as one of Melbourne's most popular golf destinations, golfers of all abilities love the parkland feel and beautifully maintained course. For years golf punditshave touted Yarra Bend Golf Course as one of Melbourne's bestpublic golf courses. In recent years, expert design team Ogilvy Clayton Cocking Mead have improved the course layout, and provided the strategic plan for further course upgrades, which will occur over the course of the next couple of years.
Whilst Yarra Bend Golf Course is set outside the famous Melbourne sand belt region, the avid golfer (who has played some of Melbourne's premiere private golf courses), will recognise familiar sand belt course design features. This similarity is due to the course architect of Yarra Bend Golf course, also being instrumental in the design of perhaps Australia’s best golf course, Royal Melbourne Golf Club.
For those Melbourne golfers who have not been to Yarra Bend in recent years, we encourage you to come back and play a round of golf. We are sure you will be pleased with the condition of the course and the design upgrades.
