Australia is one of THE best golfing destinations in the world!
The Melbourne Sandbelt features a cluster of classic courses all in close proximity to each other- Royal Melbourne GC, Victoria GC, Kingston Heath GC & Metropolitan rate amongst the best in the world. Commonwealth, Yarra Yarra, Huntingdale & Woodlands are also world class.
The Mornington Peninsula is only an hour south of Melbourne but the world class golf continues..
The three courses at The National are exceptional. The Old Course at The National is one of favourite courses in the world:
An hour away by plane on Tasmania's north east Barnbougle Dunes & Lost Farm both feature in the world top 100 courses, and the two spectacular new new courses at King Island lack nothing by comparison and may even surpass their Tasmanian sisters.
Now everyone knows Melbourne is the sporting capital of the world, so a combination of The Sandbelt, The Mornington Peninsula, Barnbougle & King Island makes for a compelling golfing adventure...
For an extended escape golfers should also consider The Yarra Valley- famous for its wineries & fine food- and now a cluster of quality courses.
Sth Australia is renowned for its red wines, and any golfing trip to Adelaide could include time in the Barossa Valley. They have 4 championship courses in the Glenelg area- Royal Adelaide, Glenelg, Kooyonga & The Grange. It makes a lovely trip!
Sydney has one world class course- New South Wales, which should be on every golfers wish list. And it is a great place to stay for a few days with the Harbour Bridge and The Opera House very popular with tourists. Other courses of note include: The Australian, Royal Sydney & The Lakes.
