My youngest son resides in Melbourne,in February 2017 my wife and I visited him in Melbourne with my oldest son and his family. During our stay we played the Growling Frog Golf course and were made very welcome by the professional on our arrival. Hiring clubs and a buggy was all easily arranged by the professional and nothing was too... More

Played twice within a week Consider a well maintained public course with a few kangaroos running around. Worth trying if you have not been there

If not for the flies here (warmer months), this would have been more enjoyable. The course is a links-style course with some good holes and is a good test of golf without being too long. Flies are atrocious here, even with 6 applications of insect repellent, they still land all over you!

Probably the best public course I've played in Victoria. Amazing setting and super challenging. Great for beginners and advanced players

If you are coming melbourne in short time and getting some stunning view with Wild kangaroos, Growling Frog Golf Club and resturant would be a easier place to visit. Only 30-50 mins drive from Melbourne central. It is an open welcome gold club with all modern & very clean facilities to make you and friends in very comfort zone.

What a joke. Not sure what management is doing, obviously not doing there job. Management you are responsible. Sunday ordered a Risotto, came out on a cold plate, making the Risotto cold, yes cold to eat from the edge of the plate. Of course the Risotto was hot in the middle. Totally unacceptable serving food like this. It seemed like... More

We went for a family dinner, but weren't thrilled overall! They advertise in their menu, beef lasagne, but when my daughter went to order it, was told they only had vegetarian lasagna, which wasn't listed. The beer on tap ran out, so you could only buy bottles. They just seemed like they weren't prepared! The view is good, and the... More

Growling Frog is a great public access golf course north of Melbourne. I did not dine at the club as some of the reviewers have done. Just went around the 18 holes. This is a challenging course with a distinctly Aussie landscape feel to it. Modern clubhouse and excellent parking facilitites.

Played here in the middle of winter on a very cold day and lasted 9 holes. Course design was very good. Time of year meant there was no grass really on the fairways. Greens were good. Clubhouse was excellent and service was very good. The downer was the quality of the hire clubs. I am left handed and they look... More
