    New to Golf

    Golf is a daunting sport. Even when you’re a seasoned Professional, stepping up to that first tee box can be a nerve-wracking experience. But all of us feel this way, so if you’re new to golf, you should feel liberated that even the people who have played the longest still find the nerves difficult to overcome.
    Golf is for everyone – especially here at Northcote Public Golf Course – and we want to help you get involved in this wonderful game.

    Do I need to book?
    For lessons and to play a round of golf, yes bookings are highly recommended. We do accept walk-ins but we can get busy, so it’s always best to book to guarantee yourself a game. You can book online here or give us a call on 03 9484 6961.

    Nope! Northcote Public Golf Course is a public golf course so absolutely anyone can play! 7 days a week. If you’re big enough to hold a golf club, come on down and have a hit! If you’re keen to learn more about the membership at Northcote Public Golf Course.

    To play golf, you’ll need a few clubs to get you started, some golf balls, and a glove (ideally) so that you don’t get blisters on your hands. You can hire clubs from our Golf Shop and purchase balls and gloves from us too. So that we can keep everyone moving swiftly around the course, we do require that each player has a set of clubs when playing on course. If you’re not too sure what you need, just ask our team – we are always happy to help.

    Some golf courses do have dress codes, but Northcote Public Golf Course is very relaxed. Anything you can walk around and move in freely is perfect. Sports/leisure wear is ideal. We do ask that you have enclosed shoes and at least a t-shirt (no thongs or singlets). The rest is up to you! In summer we recommend you to be sun smart with long sleeves and a hat.

    Park in the carpark and walk towards the golf building into the Golf Shop. This is where you’ll pay for your round of golf and it’s where you’ll find our team to ask any questions. From there, we’ll let you now how to get to your first tee.

    In addition to our 9-hole golf course (or 18-holes should you wish to play through twice), we have our putting green, Men’s and Ladies toilets and café indoor dining area. There is also a shade cloth covered area outside with BBQ facilities.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to give us a call on 03 9484 6961 or fill out the enquiry form below:
