I'm unsure where these profile photos were taken, but they are definitely not of the Yarra Bend Golf course.

Yarra Bend is an average public course set along the banks of the Yarra in Fairfield.

If looking for a decent public access course near Frankston, I would recommend somewhere like Devil Bend.

Hi all. Yarra Bend is a public golf course in Melbourne close to the city and looks nothing like the photos uploaded. Yarra Bend is a average course but one of the closest to the city. The area - Yarra Bend - is quite beautiful though. So the coure is worth a walk around.
( haven't been there for a while. I put April 2012 in because it was a necessary field)

If you want to play Golf in Frankston, try Centenary Park or drive down the Mornington Peninsula for a huge choice of great courses. But this is closer to Melbourne.

I live in California, to play on an Australian Golf Course is always a treat. During a business trip in December with clients, I managed to spend an enjoyable afternoon at Yarra Bend. The course was a delight, nestled along the river and bushland it makes you feel you are miles away from the center of Melbourne, yet you are only few minutes from downtown. The driving range and coaching facility are one of the best I have seen, under cover with synthetic mates as well as turf. The staff were polite, professional and assisted in making it a relaxing and leisurely afternoon. On the day I was there, I met Steve Bann, one of the owners. Interesting and engaging guy, he and his business partner coach a bunch of Australian and Korean USA PGA Tour players, Stuart Appleby, Geoff Ogilvy, Aaron Baddeley, KJ Choi and Kevin Na....plus a bunch more. He took the time to spend 10 minutes talking, that was a unexpected highlight of the day and so nice of him to take the time out of his day.
Definitely a course I will return to on my next visit, and I highly recommend playing there if you are in the area.

It's about an hour from Frankston. But a lovely place on the Yarra River, with Grey-headed flying fox colony in the trees lining the river.
