TO BE VERY CLEAR TO BE CLEAR…WE ARE NOT A RESTAURANT. What we have is permission from the Council to operate a ‘secondary use’ of food service and from the VCGLR a ‘renewable limited’ liquor licence. Both of these allow us to serve ‘persons who are genuinely participating in golf practice‘. This means we cannot operate as a regular restaurant and we cannot do takeaway or home delivery (yes, people have asked)!
But if the proof is in the eating…and with pizza, it is….we reckon we’ve delivered….If you need convincing, just check out our Google reviews.

WITH BRIAN TWITE
PGA Professional Brian Twite was among those honoured by the Governor General on the 2013 Australia Day honours list with the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM). At 87 years of age, Brian Twite was officially recognised for his services to the sport of golf as an administrator and mentor. A PGA Member since 1955 after coming to Australia from England, Brian was the Head Professional at the Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne until 1994 but still remains active at the club as a Life Member. Throughout his career he has provided advice to some of the legends of the game including Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman. However, a large part of his recognition and honour was due to the development work he did at the junior level via his Cadet and Junior Golf Scholarship Programs both locally and in regional areas. Whilst spending the majority of his career at Metropolitan Golf Club, one of Melbourne’s famed sandbelt courses, Brian has always been willing to offer his knowledge and skills further afield, volunteering at many rural golf clubs, including Truemans Golf Range.
We kindly request you READ and RESPECT the following;
Truemans Golf Range is a golf PRACTICE range, NOT a DRIVING range. This has been the case since it was built in 1976, 2 years before the driver was invented by Taylormade Golf Clubs. The original blue council sign, still standing at the Browns and Truemans Rd bayside roundabout, reads “Golf Practice Range – 200m”. We are just a single 50m wide fairway, set in a little cups precinct valley – simply NOT wide enough to accommodate ‘drivers’. An obvious constraint you would think, but ignored by so many over the years that there are now well over 100,000 balls polluting our neighbour’s remnant forest. Some – bless them – suggest we send small children in to fetch them or installing 30+m high perimeter fencing (a no from council and United Energy given high voltage transmission lines). It’s also ridiculous to think a small golf practice facilty of 10 bays could find $100,000+ so driver smashers can get their balls off (so to speak). So please, all patrons using our facility MUST demonstrate that it is NOT OK to SMASH balls without any regard as to their direction or distance. Be nice. If you cannot control your slice or hook, do not keep hitting our golf balls harder and harder expecting a different result. Happy Gilmore’s are abusive and present a huge risk to everyone at the facility and are absolutely forbidden. Patrons ignoring any of these conditions will be asked to leave the facility. We are more than happy to help you with your swing technique – you just need to ask.
We value your custom and mean to cause no offence – we simply ask that you acknowledge the physical constraints of our small golf ‘practice’ range and demonstrate respect to our business by adjusting your golf practice expectations before you arrive. If you feel that this will be a constraint to your enjoyment, please use the wider practice facilities at The Rosebud Country Club, The Dunes, Moonah Links or RACV Cape Shanck rather than venting your ‘issue’ on social media platforms
