A Look At Golfing In Australia

Australia has produced some of the world’s most successful golfers. Well, just think of The Great White Shark (Greg Norman) for example. These phenomenal golfers play on some of the greatest golf courses on the globe which are all located in the Land Down Under.

Golfing Events in Australia

Three events are established on the world golf calendar: The Open in December, the PGA and the Masters (both usually in November). There is also the prestigious World Cup of Golf, featuring 60 of the top players of the game held in Melbourne in November, although the event does tour other countries as well. But each state has its own championships and these too are worth watching.

Golf Courses in AustraliaTeeing off on the golf gourse

The top courses are Royal Melbourne Club and Royal Sydney Golf Club, Perth’s Mount Lawley, Queensland’s Royal Pines (Gold Coast) and Brookwater Country Club (a majestic 6,469m course just outside Brisbane, designed by Norman).

But there are many other delightful courses throughout the country, blessed by the climate that encourages the outdoor game, and although some are extremely expensive, you can usually find a municipal course or a local club that will let you play as part of your holiday.

Golf Tour Packages in Australia

Of course if you want to concentrate on your game, there is no shortage of tour packages centred on golf. Many leading courses are attached to fantastic resorts, such as Hamilton Island Golf Club, in Queensland’s Whitsunday Islands. This offers wonderful views at almost every hole, especially on the second nine holes where you play alongside the sea. To reach the club, it is necessary to take a ferry from one of the ports of Hamilton Island across to Dent Island. There’s something really special about playing a round in the tropics, and it’s not only the price –upwards of $300 per person per night exclusive of the green fees, although kids stay and eat free.

Victoria could be your destination if you are really hungry for golf courses: the famous Sandbelt in Melbourne is renowned as possibly the finest series of facilities in the world. As well as Royal Melbourne itself, there is Commonwealth, Kingston Heath, Metropolitan, Victoria, Huntingdale and Yarra Yarra. Each of these is a championship quality course; all are within twenty minutes of each other.

Learning Golfing in Australia

There are also plenty of opportunities to learn the game, taught by a professional. Golf schools are aplenty and many can offer programmes to suit tourist visas instead of applying for an education visa. With reliable weather conditions and plenty of spacious courses, Australia is a great place to pick up the finer points of golf.

If you are a tourist who wants to play golf in Australia, having the right transport means to bring you and your golf clubs to the different golf courses is one major factor you have to consider. We make things extremely easy for you with our minibus hire. Not only will you travel in style, you will also get lots of space onboard to hold your clubs!
