Australia’s golf courses are as varied and spectacular as the land upon which they were constructed. The country is filled with stunning layouts and hidden gems, making a golf trip to Australia one of the most sought after vacations.
But with dozens of golf courses to choose from, selecting the perfect one (or three) for your golf trip to Australia can be tricky. We’re here to make it easy. From the wild dunes of Tasmania to the dramatic coastal cliffs, this is where you need to tee it up on your golf trip to Australia.
The West Course at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club is highly regarded as the No. 1 golf course in the world and the top destination for a golf trip to Australia. Designed in 1926 by Alister MacKenzie, the West Course features dramatic bunkering carved into the natural landscape of the sandbelt. Fairways demand a strategic shot off the tee and the greens, some of the most pristine putting surfaces in the country, require a well-thought approach on every hole.
Nestled in the Melbourne Sandbelt, Kingston Golf Club is rivaled only by the West Course at Royal Melbourne. While some argue that Kingston Golf Club should hold the #1 rank, all agree that both courses are great stops on a golf trip to Australia and masterpieces of golf design, most evident in the magnificent bunkering across Kingston Heath.
Barnbougle Dunes Golf Links is located on the rugged northeast coast of Tasmania, an island state of Australia. It’s arguably the greatest representation of Tasmania’s preserved wilderness with a layout that celebrates the traditions of Scottish and Irish links. Wide, rolling fairways overlooking Bass Strait make for the perfect setting for an unforgettable round on your golf trip to Australia.
Another Alister MacKenzie design, New South Wales Golf Club is a must-play on your golf trip to Australia. The course itself is located along the Tasman Sea and the northern headland of Botany Bay. The Pacific Ocean coastline enhances this stunning links-style course, reason enough to receive ranks at the No. 34 golf course in the world by Golf Magazine.
Ellerston Golf Club is one of Australia’s most exclusive clubs and one of the most sought after tee times on a golf trip to Australia. Originally built upon the 70,000-acre private estate of Kerry Packer, one of Australia’s wealthiest celebrities, accessing the swank club oftentimes requires a helicopter ride. The duo of Bob Harrison and Greg Norman paid homage to the untouched land by organically designing the course in conjunction with the natural elevation changes and whipping wind.
