Course Info

PLEASE NOTE this page is being updated as the course layout has changed (February 2017)

February 2017: Holes 9 and 10 have been removed from the course layout (as development of the adjacent residential site expands) and we have introduced two brand new holes (17th and 18th) on the west side of Ibbotson Street near the clubhouse.

The score card and course layout will be updated soon. With holes 9 and 10 gone, the present score card covers the first 16 holes of play — the new 17th and 18th are not on the current scorecard as this area of the club’s property has not been used before for golf holes (the west side of Ibbotson Street will expand as the adjacent residential development expands).

A 4,478m par 65 (mens) 18-hole country-style course, St Leonards offers challenging grass greens with slightly undulating fairways with coastal tea trees and natural gums. There is an abundance of natural bird life, and glimpses of Port Phillip Bay from the 8th hole. Despite being a shorter course, the smaller sized greens, longer par 3’s and some narrow tee corridors ensure interest and enjoyment for golfers of all ages and levels.

For women, the course is a par 67 and 4,362m in length.

Green Fees

Adults $15; Children up to 18 years $5 — applicable for either 9 holes or 18 holes.
Pay at clubhouse (green fee payments just next to front door if clubhouse is closed).

Please ensure you PAY before teeing off and carry your receipt with you.

Bookings

Bookings are not required to play at St Leonards. While there are some times reserved for competitions (see below), the course is otherwise open for green fee players.

There is a chipping area at the course but no main practice facilities or pro shop. Limited golf supplies (second hand balls) are available for sale when the Office is open. Plenty of car parking is available outside the clubhouse in Ibbotson Street.

9 Hole Layout

Want to play 9 holes? We suggest playing holes 1 to 5, then 15 to 18.

The 15th tee is located just past the 6th tee — download the course 9-hole layout map below for specific directions. Please ensure if you skip from 5 to 15 that you don’t interrupt games already underway on the back 9.

Clubhouse and facilities

The new clubhouse is on Ibbotson Street — see the map on our Contact and Location page. There is no course access via old clubhouse at Blanche Street.

When open, the clubhouse has a kitchen and licensed bar (and barbecue facilities for clubhouse hire and corporate/social golf days).

St Leonards NEW Course Layout

The front and back nines have been reversed (eg, the old 10th is now the 1st, and the old 1st is now the 10th).

As well, two holes are now different lengths — the old first (now the 10th) is shorter and a par 3 instead of a par 4. The tee is opposite the 9th green (old 18th). The old 5th par 3 is now longer too with a new tee (14th hole, 189m).

Golfer Review online:

Run by volunteers with limited resources who are very proud of their course, very cheap green fees. Found them to be extremely friendly and accommodating. After playing up country on sandscrapes, I appreciated the course and surrounds, have played on a lot worse.
