New to Golf

Golf is a daunting sport. Even when you’re a seasoned pro, 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 Bundoora Park Public Golf Course – and we want to help you get involved in this wonderful game.

If you have any questions, our team in the Golf Shop are on hand to help explain the game, provide the right equipment, and to get you started.

In the meantime, here are some Frequently Asked Questions with the answers provided that may help you feel more comfortable.

For lessons and to play a round of golf, yes, bookings are highly recommended. We do accept walk-ins but we can get pretty 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 9469 3880.

Nope! Bundoora Park 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!

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 (either just a couple or a half set) 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 Bundoora Park 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.

Follow the signs and drive through Bundoora Park to the golf carpark. We have ample free parking at Bundoora Park Public Golf Course. The Golf Shop is then your next stop. 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 know how to get to your first tee.

As well as our stunning 18-hole golf course and practice facilities, we have Men’s and Ladies toilets and amenities and a cafe/indoor dining area. There are also toilets out on the golf course – one on each 9-hole course.
