Getting back into the swing of things

"It's so pleasing to see our courses open again. So many value being able to get out on the course, enjoy being outdoors and just focusing on their game. They're also getting some great exercise and staying connected with their community."

Maroondah's two golf courses are open, providing opportunities for the community to participate in more outdoor activities.

Golf can deliver genuine health and wellbeing benefits for players of all ages and abilities, which is why our courses have been so important for community members during the present challenging environment.

More than a great game

Stuart Robertson from Maroondah Golf said the sport is a naturally socially distance activity and one of the first to open up when restrictions are eased, making it a valuable community asset.

Stuart said the benefits of golf cannot be underestimated, including improved mood, reduced anxiety and increased confidence. In addition, playing golf can boost social connections and self-esteem.

Take advantage of our beautiful courses

Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated team, Ringwood and Dorset Golf courses are in top condition throughout the year.

Mat Fitzgerald, Golf Course Maintenance Coordinator, said the grounds crew have done a great job in recent months.

"We had 200mm of rain during May and June, and high rainfall recorded at Dorset Golf during the first half of the year. This has taken its toll on the course. But we've carried out works to ensure it's in great condition."
