Lang Lang Golf Club
Lang Lang Golf Club (Website)

The 18 hole Lang Lang Golf Club offers a unique experience in the Westernport Region.

Surrounded by scenic forest landscapes and native wildlife, the course has been described as a hidden gem. The layout is a very challenging par 70 with narrow fairways and slick, true putting surfaces.

The course is built on pure sand which allows for optimal natural drainage so the course is playable all year round.

So, if you enjoy quiet surroundings and love your golf, come down and have a game.

You're sure to be pleasantly surprised.
