The Course

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 courses. Rated in the top 100 public access courses in Australia, the 18 holes are varied and challenging. No matter the number of players on the course, it 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 surrounds that supports a variety of local flora and fauna.

Following are images and some advice on how to play our course.  We hope you enjoy your experience.
