Golf: Yarra Bend Golf Course
The Yarra Bend Golf Course is situated in Yarra Bend Park, only 4 kms from the Melbourne CBD. The majestic Yarra River hugs the edges of this scenic course, providing picturesque views of the river and rocky cliffs.
Well known as one of Melbourne’s premier public courses for years, Yarra Bend features the highest quality greens and sculptured fairways. The course provides different levels of challenge to satisfy the avid golfer, whilst providing an enjoyable game for beginners.
A feature of the course are the par 3 holes. These holes provide an opportunity for you to quest for the perfect tee shot straight to the elevated greens. If you are short from the tee, an exciting up-and-down approach is needed to hit the green.
On the par 4 holes (2nd, 6th 12th and 15th), your drive will be over a small crest. Follow your ball down and see the hole open up to a sunken green, with a backdrop of steep escarpments, the river and bushland.
A fully stocked On-Course Pro Shop is located at Yarra Bend and offers a range of clubs, bags, clothing and other accessories for all golfers. At the Cafe you will find cappucinos, hot food, sandwiches, cold drinks and other snacks.
