Membership product statements


Golf is a game where you can leave the world behind once you're on the first tee. Golf is about honesty, integrity and self reliance, and teaches many life lessons (including to children). It's a game you can play your entire life, with your kids or your grandfather, forever. It's a game where you can meet new friends, develop networks and spend time with mates. 

The handicapping system in golf is unique. It enables the best golfer to compete with the newest beginner. It's a great way to measure your progress and test your improvement. Membership of Australia's national handicapping system (GolfLink) is included in your membership fee, as is Golf Australia and Golf Victoria affiliation, and member personal and public liability insurance.

The course

Trentham is one of country Victoria's best and most beautiful courses. Eighteen grass greens that have recently been completely rebuilt provide the best in country Victoria. The course challenges players of every standard, but is not overwhelmingly long. A large variety of holes from a 115m par-3 to a 458m par-5 provide fun and golfing interest. You won't get the feeling standing on the tee that every hole is a 'slog' and enjoyment is out of the question. Ideal for low and high handicappers. Easily walked and not hilly.

"We build hundreds of golf courses that most people can't play. They take too long to play because they're too difficult" Lee Trevino.

The club

Trentham owns its own land and is an incorporated association owned and operated by its members. That means they take pride in the course's appearance, condition and operation. The volunteer ethos gets everyone involved and keeps costs low. The club is financially solid, always improving and runs without debt. A bar and refreshments are always available on competition days and Sundays. Practice facilities include a short range, a practice chipping green and bunker, a practice putting green and a warm-up net. Poker machine free.

Value for money

You'd think that having one of the best courses west of Melbourne would make Trentham more expensive, but you'd be wrong. Trentham is among the least expensive, making it great value for money. Full 7-day membership for an adult is only $575 per year (2020), and there are even better rates for families, full-time students under 25 and juniors. Just think ... play as much as you like on a quality course for a little over $10 per week!

Our members

Renowned as a friendly club that is devoid of cliques, Trentham has a great social atmosphere in the clubhouse after competitions. An active social club runs members activities, social golf events, social nights and a small golf shop. A friendly approachable committee invites you to put your point of view and discuss issues that concern you. There is an active womens committee that runs competitions and golf clinics, and a social group that plays social competitions on Mondays as well organising trips to other courses.
