Why Golf in Australia?

Being lost in Australia gives you a lovely sense of security.

Bruce Chatwin

Australia is a breathtaking country filled with diverse landscapes that will challenge and excite golfers. Whether it’s by the seaside, city, or tropics, this country provides many of the world’s loveliest golf courses to practice your skills.

Tee up at some of the best locations like through the rolling dunes of Tasmania or in the lap of nature at the Great Barrier Reef. Besides its great weather, pristine wilderness, and hospitality, the country offers some of the best local cuisine and wine to complement your golfing experience.


Golf was first played in Australia in 1839 in Grose Farm, the earliest location that was heavily influenced by Royal Blackheath Golf Club. Many of the country’s golf courses have been designed by the influential Dr. Alister MacKenzie.

In 2006, Golf Australia was formed to unify the Australian Golf Union (AGU) and Women’s Golf Australia (WGA).

The oldest golf course and club in the country are Grose Farm and NSW Golf Club, respectively. Australia has an exhaustive collection of signature and premier golf courses that embody a rich mix of traditional Scottish heritage and metropolitan grandeur.
