Five golf tours where luxury is par for the course
Luxury Golf & Scenic Tours Tasmania understands that golf is more than a hobby. Indeed, it is even more than the exhilarating satisfaction that comes from that long-sought birdie.
In a centuries-long history, golf has evolved far from its pebble-tapping beginnings. From courting such royal endorsements as those of King Charles I and Mary Queen of Scots to being played on the moon in 1971, the sport’s highlight reel has firmly established it as a cultural icon – an appreciation of dedication, precision and finesse.
Luxury Golf & Scenic Tours aptly rises to such an exalted benchmark with customised tours designed to deliver the very best golfing, wine tastings, fresh produce and pampering indulgences Tasmania has to offer. And when the state is home to the top four public golf courses in Australia, the journey is bound to meet your expectations.
Here are just five that will have you packing your clubs tonight.
Guests will be transferred from Launceston Airport to the coastal Barnbougle and Lost Farm complex, where wits will be tested as you work out tactical and creative approaches to the course. Views out to the ocean are complemented by three-course meals and distinguished accommodation offerings, and its sand dunes make for a delightful challenge. Over the coming week, highlights include visiting the Country Club Casino Resort, spectacular King Island and Australia’s number-one public golf course, Cape Wickham.
Combine spectacular views of Cataract Gorge with a tour of the renowned Tamar Valley on a tour that delivers some of Australia’s finest golf and wine alike. Guests will enjoy lunch at Clover Hill Estate before tasting fine wines at Jansz, Bay of Fires Winery. Day Two will see golfers heading to the 18-hole Barnbougle Dunes, where a little strategy goes a lot further than does brute strength.
On King Island, guests will discover pristine bays and beaches and, of course, the world-class produce for which the region is famous. It is home to two of Australia’s most coveted golf courses, including Ocean Dunes Golf Course, where guests will enjoy views out to two kilometres of uninterrupted coastline as they test their skills on dramatic slopes. Guests will also visit Cape Wickham, the Country Club Casino Resort and Barnbougle Dunes.
If your idea of the perfect Tasmanian tour involves 150 minutes of unparalleled indulgence, perhaps make time for a day spent rejuvenating after days on the green. Treat yourself to a relaxing massage, facial and body-balancing ‘Salt Glow’ treatment with lunch and a wine tour included.
