Golf Australia Magazine ranked the course #73 Public Access golf course in Australia for 2017 and noted:
"The Peter Thomson and Ross Perrett’s design has been in the ground now for eight years and the playing surfaces have matured beautifully. Our judges made particular note of the high quality of the bentgrass putting surfaces."
Extract from the club website:
The Ballarat Golf Club has a long and proud history spanning back to 1895. It is one of Australia's oldest Clubs and up until it moved to a partially new course in 2008, it was Australia's oldest 18 hole club on its original site, as other golf courses founded before Ballarat moved to other locations during their history.
The championship course has been redesigned by Thomson Perret and provides an outstanding experience for golfers of all levels. The course has ranked amongst the top 100 public access courses in Australia by Golf Australia magazine in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017 and achieved rankings in Aus Golf's Top 100 Best Conditions and Course lists in 2017.
The club house is home to award winning Greenside bistro and bar, a fully stocked pro shop and modern conference and function facilities. Various club memberships are available including social membership and a range of golf membership options and guests are always welcome.
