Golf Travel in 2016

In 2012, International Golf Specialists was established with the goal of providing golfers with the best golfing experiences available in the Australasian region. Since then, our product has grown to also include South Africa and Mauritius and in 2017, we will expand into the European market.

Our hosted tours to Tasmania and the incredible links layouts of Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm, always fill fast, and most of the guests on these tours are there for the second, third of fourth time. These two courses are rated in the World’s Top 100 with Barnbougle at 33 and Lost Farm 40. The courses themselves are just part of the intrigue which is added to by the barren and isolated acreage where they are located on the northern Tasmanian coastline.

The holiday island of Bali, which is so easily accessible from Australian capital cities and so affordable, is also home to three of the best courses in Asia. Nirwana Golf Club is a Greg Norman designed masterpiece, winding its way through rice paddies, ancient temples and along the stunning coastline of the Indian Ocean. Bali National Golf Club has recently come into its own as one of the premiere layouts available to visitors to Bali with some of the most superb bunkering, lakes and magnificently thought out and designed holes anywhere in the southern hemisphere. Just a short drive from Bali airport, New Kuta offers its own unique challenges, and when the winds whips off the ocean, the greens perched on top of the cliff tops high by the sea become all the more testing. International Golf Specialists have golf tours and holidays for every golfer wanting any kind of Bali golf holiday.

With New Zealand golf tourism growing faster than nearly any other region in the world, IGS can offer golf travel packages to some of the best destinations that New Zealand has to offer. The country’s most popular holiday destination of Queenstown, also happens to be home to some of the best golf courses on the planet. The Hills, Jack’s Point, Millbrook Resort and Kelvin Heights are rated as some of the most scenic golf experiences that you could find anywhere. With stunning views to the Remarkable mountain ranges and Lake Wakatipu, golfers can be forgiven for losing focus on the game at hand when they take in the splendor that this region has to offer. The north Island also provides visitors with incredible golf at Cape Kidnappers – currently ranked 16 in the world, its sister course of Kauri Cliffs, Taupo’s Wairakei International and the Jack Nicklaus designed Kinloch, to name just some of the area’s best.

Whatever golf holiday you are looking for, International Golf Specialists have the experience in the golf travel industry to construct your perfect golfing getaway. Our knowledge of the golf courses, accommodation and attractions at each of our destinations goes toward creating the best possible itinerary for you and your travelling party. We can recommend the best time of year to visit and, importantly, when not to visit some regions.
