Australia's Best Golf Courses

Tee off on some of the world's top courses

A proud sporting nation, Australia is far from under par when it comes to golf courses. Golf is largely a leisure activity for many Australians, although with international events such as the PGA Tour of Australasia being held on home grounds, many golfing fanatics flock to the green grounds for some competitive rounds. Australian golf courses are hard to compete against, with over 1500 scattered around the nation, dating back to 1882. When travelling, it’s inevitable that you will pass a course or two so grab a buggy, don your golfing cap and head for a hole in one.
