The perfect way to experience Sandbelt Golf.
Sandringham Golf Course, affectionately known as Sandy, is a fabulous 18-hole public access course situated in the famous Melbourne Sandbelt. Surrounded by Royal Melbourne Golf Club and Victoria Golf Club this gem provides an excellent test of golf for players of all levels.
A minimum standard of dress is required, which consists of good, clean casual clothes, golf shoes or sports shoes.
Divots & Pitch Marks
Please take a sand bucket out onto the course and use it to fill your divots.
Take the time to fix your pitch marks on the greens. Not doing so affects the enjoyment of players following you.
Pace of Play
The ideal time to complete 18 holes of golf is 4 hours so please make sure you keep up with the group directly in front of you. If you are experiencing a particularly slow round call the shop and we’ll send out a ranger to investigate.
We don’t allow you to consume alcohol on the course.
The café is a licenced facility, but the golf course is not.
The new look Sandy!
Project Update – 24 September 2018
At the 20 February 2018 Ordinary Meeting of the Bayside City Council, Councillors met to review the comments and feedback associated with the second round of consultation which saw 108 attendees across the 3 ‘drop on sessions’ and 185 responses to the survey that was provided on Council’s “Have Your Say” Website. Council resolved to ‘provide consent as land owner for a Planning Permit Application to be submitted based on Option B – an 18 hole golf course’, the option that provides the greatest benefits to the broader community.
Since February 2018, the Project team has been refining the course layout with particular focus on maintaining the proposed scorecard whilst minimising the impact on vegetation, creating course safety improvements, optimising water storage capacity and enhancing the overall biodiversity of the site through an extensive revegetation/planting program. To assist with this design process, extensive consultation was undertaken with a range of stakeholders including the Bayside Friends of Native Wildlife, Bayside Community Nursery, Beaumaris Conservation Society and the Bayside City Council.
The Project team has also been working closely with the building Architect to develop the designs for the new proposed facility that will consolidate the current separate facilities and include a café, public toilet and change room facilities, administration facilities, indoor high-performance facilities and education spaces.
On 12 July, 2018 Golf Victoria lodged a Planning Permit Application for the proposed Sandringham Golf Links Redevelopment with the Bayside City Council. Council has now progressed the Planning Permit Application to the “Public Notification Stage” – a 14 day period commencing Monday 24 September 2018 that is provided to any person who may be affected by the application to make a submission to the responsible authority. After the notification period, Council planning officers will undertake their assessment of the application. This will include consideration of any submissions made as well as referral comments and the application documentation. A report will then be prepared and considered by Councillors at a Council meeting, where the application will be finally determined.
It is difficult to determine exactly how long the ‘Planning Permit’ process will take to finalise, however, it is envisaged that if a Planning Permit is issued in the not too distant future, that the Project implementation stage will commence in early 2019.
