Our Facilities

As a private resort, Lawson Lodge Country Estate provides outstanding accommodation for large groups, with an extensive range of leisure facilities provided exclusively for our guests. From the picturesque 9 hole golf course with views over Mount Macedon to the newly renovated Sports Bar and Lounge,  Lawson Lodge provides a range of activities to entertain guests of all ages.


Whether just spending the day or staying for a few nights, we have thought of everything to ensure you and your group are thoroughly entertained during your time at Lawson Lodge Country Estate.

Start your day around with a walk around our 65 acre estate, enjoying the beautiful views and peaceful bush surrounds. Challenge your friends to a round of golf or a game of tennis or basketball. For rainy days we have a selection of giant lawn games, board games and billiards. When it is time to wind down treat yourself to a massage, enjoy a movie in the Cinema, or relax in the Sports Bar with a glass of wine from some of the Macedon Ranges best wineries.

On those warm afternoons enjoy some watersports on the lake, or try you luck with a fishing rod. Our 3.5m round plunge pool and spa will be installed by Spring 2022, and will be the perfect spot to relax at the end of the day. During the colder months relax by one of our many open fires or enjoy a beer and some toasted marshmallows by the fire pit.

When it comes to dining, choose between 2 BBQ areas with indoor and outdoor dining options. Guests can self cater or we can provide some outstanding private dinner party options.

Whether you are looking to relax, or enjoy an action packed vacation, Lawson Lodge has something for everyone.

Our course is set amongst in a quiet bush setting with views across to Mount Macedon. Set on 65 acres, it is short enough for the social golfer to enjoy, but challenging enough for lower handicap golfers. With several dams and a lake to contend with, and various other obstacles including hills, sand bunkers, and dog legs. Average playing time is around 2 hours.

It is a 9-hole, 18-tee golf course, so for guests wanting to play the back 9 there are alternate tee positions for most holes. Par 34 for 9 holes or par 68 for 18 holes. The 9th finishes at the clubhouse, where you can enjoy a drink in your very own private sports bar. Clubs and buggies are available for guest use.
