Set on the stunning Mornington Peninsula, this venue offers rolling landscapes and unrivalled views of Port Phillip Bay. The exclusive location and modern facilities will transport your wedding plans into the classic wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
Manicured and natural landscapes with picture-perfect photo opportunities
When you first sight the rolling greens of Portsea Golf Club it’s no wonder this location was handpicked as a site for golfing back in the 1800s. These hills first operated as a club in 1924. They’ve been heralded as one of Australia’s finest golf courses ever since.
The team has also proven their expertise when it comes to events with a range of awards to show for it.
Opened in just 2013, the new modern clubhouse facilities offer sweeping views across the grounds and Port Phillip Bay. This majestic spot is perfect for a classic wedding with a stylish yet relaxed natural feel.
The club is dedicated to preserving the Coastal Moonah Woodlands and local Moonah trees that run adjacent to the greens. This makes their 90 acres the perfect location for a range of photo opportunities on your big day. You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to your wedding photos, from cruising along in a golf buggy to standing by the native trees at sunset.
The Portsea Room
Capacity: 70 – 200 seated and up to 250 cocktail-style
Floor-to-ceiling windows will make your reception in the Portsea Room stand the test of time. The room has a light and airy feel offering unrivalled views of Port Phillip Bay.
Choose from a range of options to set up a reception that will be suited to you as a couple. You can seat up to 200 guests on round tables or 150 on long table features in the room.
Don’t be afraid to give your classic wedding a twist ether. A cocktail reception will allow you to invite more of your nearest and dearest. It will also give your reception a more relaxed atmosphere.

Stunning ceremony locations to choose from
Portsea Golf Club and Mercure Portsea offer two majestic ceremony locations for you to say “I do”. For couples who want a more natural feel, you can marry on the grounds with the sweeping greens around you. Or, for a wider view of the bay, your ceremony could be hosted on the balcony of the clubhouse.
You’ll be able to organise an inclusive package that is right for you, whatever you choose. Classic white chairs and features will be available for both ceremony choices.
The green spaces also offer the perfect opportunity for additional styling if you already have a theme in mind. Bright floral arbours or classic silk draping will both look fantastic to accompany the stunning natural backdrop of your ceremony.
Complimentary accommodation for the newlyweds
There’s already enough to plan for a wedding without having to figure out where you’re going to stay on your wedding night. That’s where Portsea Golf Club and Mercure Portsea have you covered. Not only do they have stunning boutique-style accommodation onsite, but they also offer a complimentary stay for any couple who books a wedding at the club.
Enjoy modern and stylish accommodation without the hassle of having to leave your wedding venue. Each room includes a private balcony or terrace overlooking the panoramic views and is just moments away from several popular destinations on the Mornington Peninsula. You could stay a few extra nights to fit in a game of golf or head to the Peninsula Hot Springs to relax after your big day.
There’s a total of 24 rooms on the property which means your guests will also be able to book accommodation for the wedding night.
Transport with a difference
There’s one added feature of getting married on a golf course that you won’t get anywhere else. Cruise to and from your ceremony, reception and accommodation in your very own golf buggy to make memories that will last a lifetime.
These buggies are available to help you and your wedding party get around the grounds for all your photo needs. They also create fun and fabulous photo opportunities in themselves!
An exclusive location just a short drive from Melbourne
Its stunning landscapes and bay views make the Mornington Peninsula a highly sought-after romantic getaway destination. But it wouldn’t be so popular if it wasn’t so easily accessible from Melbourne and the suburbs around the city.
The Peninsula Link means Portsea is just an hour and a half away from Melbourne by car. It’s also just moments away from the Bellarine Peninsula. The Queenscliffe to Sorrento ferry opens the gateway for guests on the other side of the bay. There is also ample parking available for any guests who are travelling in the day or staying overnight.
