Comedian Lewis Black one said that golf was a game designed for people who don’t hate themselves enough. We have to disagree, however, especially when you can tee off at these pristine golf course – all of which are located right here in Australia!

The National Golf Club
Located at Cape Schanck, a short drive to the south of Melbourne, The National Golf Club’s 72 holes is spread across three courses, namely the Moonah Course, Ocean Course and Old Course. It goes without saying that the club ranks amongst the best pieces of golf real estate!
Kingston Heath Golf Club
As host of the 2016 World Cup of Golf, the Kingston Heath Golf Club is, dare we say, one of the most beautifully manicured courses in the world. The 18 hole course has seen many prestigious events, including the Australian Masters and Women’s Open, and offers plenty of challenges, from clever obstructions to harrowing water holes.
Rated the 11th best course in the world, the Dunes Course at Barnbougle Links is a worthy opponent, where your chipping, putting and driving skills will be challenged. The famous 4th hole is where the largest bunker in the southern hemisphere can be found.
New South Wales Golf Club
Situated on the cliffs of La Perouse, the New South Wales Golf Club was designed by Alister Mackenzie in 1926. The course has 18 holes, two of which stretch alongside the Tasman Sea and Botany Bay. The spectacular views and challenging nature of the course have earned it a place amongst Australia’s top golf destinations.
