Golfing in Australia

  • Teeing off - make sure avid golfers take time to include a round of golf when booking their Australia vacations.
  • Australian golf open
  • On the 18th green
  • Kangaroos on the golf course - always a great photo opportunity when golfing on your Australia vacation.

Australia is blessed with having some of the best golf courses in the world and now Goway Travel has exclusive access to these courses with our partnership with Great Golf Courses of Australia. Courses with world-class designs will not only test the skill levels of all players but will also let the international visitor play on some most historic and storied courses in the country.  

How about a confirmed tee-off time at the historic Royal Melbourne Golf Club, home of the 2011 President’s Cup, and another at the famous Sandbelt Course, Kingston Heath, located just outside of Melbourne? In Sydney, play 18 holes at the scenic New South Wales Golf Club and then fly off to Tasmania for games on two of the top links courses in the world at Barnbougle. 

Imagine playing on courses where your hazards will be a mob or two of kangaroos, screeching flocks of galahs and laughing kookaburras, looming stands of eucalypts and threatening billabongs! You have always dreamed of travelling to Australia so why not combine your passion for golf with a trip Downunder? The climate is perfect for golf and the friendly, relaxed Aussie lifestyle will be sure to follow you throughout your journey.
