Six public golf courses, all within 30 minutes of each other, is a blessing that golfers can look forward to in the Macedon Ranges.
All have unique challenges for the experienced golfer or weekend hacker with their varied terrains and layouts.
For a unforgettable experience, Woodend is a must. Enjoy striking views to Hanging Rock and Mount Macedon on the front nine, and the sight of Woodend laid out amongst the leafy oaks below. Be amazed by the 11th hole, a true leap of faith, and use the rope pull to bring you back up the hill after navigating most of the back nine.
For a challenging mix of beautiful greens, bunkers and longer holes, and kangaroos outside the clubhouse, try Gisborne Golf Course.
For classic dry Australian bushland surrounds, make your way to the Kyneton Golf Course on Black Hill Road and its long fairways, mature trees and manicured greens.
Mount Macedon Golf Course is great for a quick nine on the way up to the mountain with its wide maintained fairways, great scenery and abundant wildlife. Romsey and Lancefield have public courses with sprawling, flatter fairways under big skies.
