A Course Tour of 45 Spectacular Holes of Golf
View each of our 45 spectacular holes
courtesy of the course flyovers of each hole below, allowing you to gain a true
sense of what each of our courses has to offer.
Course and Creek courses are both ranked in Australian Golf Digest’s Top 100
courses in Australia with the Beach Course being ranked No. 32 for the last 3
years in a row. The Beach Course is a true
links style course, designed by Tony Cashmore. It arguably offers the best
collection of Par 3’s in Australia. Our Creek Course, is a parkland layout and
is co-designed by golfing great Sir Nick Faldo (6 time Major Champion) and Tony
Cashmore. Our 9 hole Short Course, also designed by Tony Cashmore, is the
newest addition to our offering and provides a genuine golfing challenge for
those who want to sharpen their short game or have a quick round.
In 2020, we commenced the Course
Improvement Program following the engagement of Course Design Consultant,
Darius Oliver. Darius has been involved in designing several golf courses in
Australia and New Zealand, most notably as co-designer of Cape Wickam Links on
King Island, TAS and he is currently working on a spectacular cliff-top golf
course on Kangaroo Island, SA. The primary purpose of the Course Improvement Program
is to improve access, maintenance, drainage, playability and conditioning of
the bunkers and a rationalisation of the number of bunkers.
In addition, and in parallel with the
changes to bunkering, some re-design changes are being made consistent with the
design and aesthetic intent of the original architects. These changes are
designed to aid maintenance and to ensure that both the Beach and Creek Courses
are challenging but also make golf at Thirteenth Beach enjoyable and fun for
all. All of the works have been carried out by our magnificent greens keeping
staff led by our Course Superintendent Steve Hewitt (with minimal disruption to
play) under the watchful eye of Darius. This program will continue well into
2024 and we hope you enjoy the wonderful golf that is Thirteenth Beach.
Both of 13th Beach’s two Championships golf courses regularly appear in various publications’ Top 100 Australian course rankings.
