Australia has a love affair with golf. From watching its heroes like Greg Norman, Adam Scott and Jason Day to playing a lengthy menu of highly ranked, spectacular courses, Australians cherish everything about the game.
Golf is Australia’s number one participant sport and approximately 10% of the adult Australian population plays golf on a regular basis.
For golf vacationers, the combination of world-class golf, fine wines, unique cuisine, beautiful coastlines, a relaxed lifestyle and a welcoming, golf knowledgeable citizenry makes Australia a fantastic choice, especially for couples.
When it’s time to tee up, there are more than 1,800 courses to choose from and the variety is absolutely amazing. The best Australian golf courses are situated in a small area of Melbourne known as the Sand Belt, where legendary courses like Royal Melbourne, Kingston Heath and Commonwealth are located.
You can also play courses that weave through the wild and dramatic dunes of northeast Tasmania and alongside the sandstone cliffs of southern Sydney. Besides the Sand Belt layouts, other top courses to play are Barnbougle Dunes, Barnbougle Lost Farm and New South Wales.
Off the course, Australia will seduce you with more than 7,000 beaches, vibrant cities and the vast, rugged outback.
Australia has an outstanding outdoor dining lifestyle so you’ll enjoy some of the world’s best food and wine amid stunning surroundings. Whether its Shrimp on the Barbie, a sumptuous Aussie Meat Pie or “fusion” cuisine, dining “al fresco” in Australia is a distinct and memorable pleasure.
Enhancing your dining experience are exceptional Australian wines. There are more than 60 wine regions and you’ll always find a great selection of Shiraz, Chardonnay and sparkling wines.
Isn’t about time you enjoyed the fabulous Australian lifestyle and played some of the world’s best courses?
