more about the club
The club has a prestigious history, with some notable Australians as past members. Established in 1926, the club was seen as an integral part of the Walter Burley Griffin-designed Ranelagh Estate. The estate was an early experiment in bringing the concept of the country club to Australia. Both a seaside resort and a country club, Ranelagh was seen as a place where Melbourne’s successful professional people would build their holiday houses and enjoy social, sport and recreation activities.
The club’s busy social scene in the 1950s and ’60s was divided between the lawn tennis courts and the beach. There are many stories of great sporting competitions, sailing regattas and glittering parties. The club has always been a vibrant part of the Mount Eliza community and a social hub for many residents.
These days the club has around 1,500 members who enjoy social, sporting and family activities. It is a venue for local entertainment, social and corporate events and private functions. Our membership is diverse; from young families and professionals to retired couples. We have members who are very new to the Mornington Peninsula and many who are long-term local residents.
The Ranelagh Club is a great place to meet and make friends. It is a superb location to enjoy a drink on the deck, take in the stunning views across Port Phillip Bay and dine in the restaurant. We have some of the finest sailing and tennis facilities in the region, and our colourful beach boxes are a great place to entertain and BBQ during summer.
As members, we have a common interest in our community, a healthy lifestyle, and enjoying all that this wonderful part of the world has to offer. We welcome you to be a part of it.
