Australian golf travel and golf packages

Australia offers everything to make a golf holiday truly memorable. With a climate that is the envy of many other nations and golf courses throughout the country which rank amongst the world’s best, visitors coming to Australia can experience great golf and more.

Ranked as the 11th best golf course in the world, Barnbougle Dunes in Tasmania now ranks above the likes of Pebble Beach, Winged Foot and Turnberry. The Royal Melbourne West course comes in at number 9. To have two courses featuring so highly amongst the best in the world is a testament to the golf available throughout Australia. Kingston Heath at 20, Barnbougle Lost Farm course at 23, Royal Melbourne East Course at 28, New South Wales Golf Club 33 and Victoria Golf Club at 94 also feature in the current list of the world’s Top 100 and are places that avid golfers dream of playing.

Renowned around the globe for its pristine beaches and fantastic weather, Australia offers the complete package for golf travellers both on and off the golf course. Our casinos provide superb accommodation and nightly entertainment. Our proximity to Asia and the huge selection of airlines flying into Australia means that travellers wishing to visit on any budget can have a golf package tailored for them. Golf in Australia is also extremely affordable and accessible. Augusta National in the United States may rank at Number 3 on the list of the best golf courses in the world, but is not available for play to the general public. Barnbougle Dunes however, is public access and priced so that anyone can say they have played this magnificent layout.
