Midway between Inverloch and Leongatha and set in magnificent natural bush, Leongatha Golf Club is a beautiful 18 hole all weather course designed by H. Vernon Morcom, who with his brother were the course architects for many of Australia’s top golf courses, Vern was also the superintendent for Kingston Heath Golf Club from 1928-67. Rated in the top 100 public access courses in Australia, the 18 holes at Leongatha are varied and challenging. No matter the number of players, the course retains a sense of quiet seclusion.
Wide santa ana couch fairways provide excellent all year playing conditions and are flanked with magnificent trees rising from the natural bush that supports a variety of local flora and native animals. A 3 year program converting all fairways to santa ana couch was completed in the summer of 2006-7. This has further enhanced the course’s reputation as being one of the very best in rural Victoria. A number of the large greens are protected by newly designed bunkers and spectacular vistas of the rich surrounding countryside emerge at differing vantage points around the course.
