Dunsborough Lakes Golf Club Tavern gets new management

DUNSBOROUGH Lakes Golf Club Tavern has had a revamp, thanks to new restaurant managers Ryan and Caroline Haigh, and chef Shane Naylor. 

Mr Haigh, who also owns Dunsborough cafe Artezen, said the restaurant provided an easily accessible, relaxed dining option for golfers and the Dunsborough Lakes community.

“I live in the Lakes and have a young kid and it just annoyed me that I had to go all the way into town to get a beer and eat somewhere casual,” he said.

“The families are really enjoying it and the golfers are embracing having the families come down here.

“It is very community focused.”

Mr Haigh said everyone was welcome. 

“It is not a club house, it is a public tavern restaurant,” he said.

“It is a diverse space that can be used by anyone.” 

He said everything from fish and chips to fresh pasta with braised duck ragu was on the menu.

“I suppose it is a pub/bistro style menu,” he said.

“we need to change the menu a fair bit because the golfers are here week in week out. 

“At the moment there is a chicken and leek hotpot with a pastry lid, roast potatoes and broccolini and that just walks out the door.”

Along with a diverse restaurant offering, the club also hold theme nights and could host special functions too. 

“We show the footy down here on the weekends which is popular, and just last week we have introduced doing a Sunday roast through the winter – we pick a different roast each week,” Mr Haigh said.
