I am a foundation member of 13th Beach. The addition of The Creek Course in 2004 to The Beach Course (2001) added a contrast to the links style and has made 13th Beach a world class golfing facility. The two courses are always presented in fantastic condition and the greens year in year out are second to none. Continued improvements to the courses over the years has resulted in their recognition as two of the best golf courses in Australia. We have a fantastic membership that is vibrant. The competitions and events we have throughout the year provide members with many golfing highlights. The addition of the Victorian Open made us proud to showcase our golfing facility to some of the best players in the world. 13th Beach is certainly setting the standards on the Bellarine Peninsula.
Justin O'Brien, Club Captain 2013-2015
"We invested in Thirteenth Beach Golf Links from the outset, a decision we don't regret at the least. We've really enjoyed being part of what is becoming a great club and a great environment. We're enjoying being members of the club - we're very well looked after by the staff, and appreciate the company of other members. We've watched the Beach Course develop into one of the very best coastal courses in Australia. The Creek Course looks set to match the challenge and quality of The Beach course, meaning that Thirteenth Beach will soon be one of the great multi-course golf complexes in Australia. It will only get better from here!"
Grant & Lisa Phelps, Handicap 14 & 28, Landowners
"The Beach Course ranked 14th in Australia with The Creek Course appearing an equal test, the professionalism and friendliness of both the clubhouse and ground staff, all adds up to a fantastic evolving golf club. What a beautiful place to be!!"
John Bell, Handicap 3, Resident
"Each shot is a choice at Thirteenth Beach, on either course. Wind direction and strength change constantly leading to a challenge for the thinking golfer. It doesn't change on the greens where pace and line create options to consider. A truly testing round awaits all golfers."
David Peebles, Handicap 8, Resident
"Being a member at Thirteenth Beach Golf Links has given me the opportunity to hold corporate functions of a high standard at the club. Both our Christmas lunch & golf day were a huge success due to the professionalism and friendliness of the staff."
Peter Diamond, Handicap 17, Corporate Member
"I have been a member at Thirteenth Beach Golf Links since day one, and I just love the place. The Beach Course is interesting, challenging and always enjoyable. I also enjoy the friendly and informal atmosphere of the club and clubhouse. I am really looking forward to tackling The Creek Course."
Bruce Nunn, Handicap 4, member
"Two great courses, challenging and different, are good enough reason to love 13th Beach. Throw in the relaxing informality in the clubhouse and welcoming staff plus three great pros and a recently redeveloped practice area and members will tell you it is just irresistible. The corporate club structure is superior to traditional clubs and annual subs are competitive. As a resident for the past six years, I have yet to see a more
classy residential development and can't imagine a friendlier place to live,
with easy access to sand, surf and city."
Alan Lipshut, Resident
"I have always dreamed of a course like this on the Bellarine Peninsula, never did I ever imagine it would be quite this good. Every time I drive down the Barwon Heads road, it is with eager anticipation, what will they (our 2 courses) be like today, will thee kind & challenge me like no other? This is the challenge of Thirteenth Beach, both The Creek & The Beach, always different, always satisfying, always great FUN! Steve & his team need to be heartily congratulated on a the truly magnificent conditioning of our great golf links - Thank you!"
Brett Morrissy, Handicap 15 (coming down!)
"I have been a
junior member of 13th Beach since I was 10 years old. In the past 6 years
I have experienced the challenges of the two courses, the Golf Academy run by
AAA golf professionals, and home of the Vic Open. Playing at 13th Beach
has provided me the opportunity to meet new golfers and the friendship that is
extended to juniors from members making them feel part of the club. It
also allows you to participate in club competitions on alternative courses,
club championships and the yearly order of merit. You are also able to
represent your home club in junior pennant and men's pennant through the GDGA."
Jack Murdoch, Junior Member
