LIVE IT UP LIKE A PRO GOLFER ON THE GREAT OCEAN ROAD

by BETH GIBSON

Magnificent golf courses with ocean and bush land views, luxury accommodation, day spas and fabulous food...you can live it up like a golf pro when visiting the Great Ocean Road.

Breath in the fresh coastal air, get a good dose of Vitamin D and challenge yourself at several top-notch courses, including the Warrnambool Golf Course - home to global golfing great, Mark Leishman.

Plan your very own golf tour with friends - or take the entire family who'll have a ball on the different kinds of mini-golf courses.

Stay a while at one town, or do a road trip! There's no need to travel far from Melbourne to test your golf game and enjoy the breathtaking natural attractions of the Great Ocean Road at the same time.

RACV Torquay Golf Club

With stunning beach views and wide-open fairways, this picturesque par 71 golf course may not be the longest, but it will test you on every hole! Especially when the wind picks up. It's worth staying a few days because you have everything you need: luxurious accommodation with views of the ocean or golf course, a restaurant open all day and even an onsite spa where you can get a massage or have a hot soak. There's also direct access from the resort to the beach.

Anglesea Golf Club

The course at Anglesea Golf Club is a par 73 layout set in natural bush land, and there's also a six-bay driving range. There's a mini golf course on site for family fun and visitors get a real kick out of meeting the population of Eastern Grey Kangaroos, which roam the fairways. The club hosts daily tours so you can get up close and personal to the kangaroos as they nonchalantly go about their business!
