What should be included on an Australian golf bucket list?

We shared our thoughts on what might be included on an Australian golf bucket list.

Australia is undoubtedly a golf haven, consistently blessed with ideal weather for enjoying the sport on some of the globe’s premier courses.

Notably, many of Australia’s top golf courses are accessible to the public, welcoming enthusiasts to book tee times at rates that would make the rest of the world envious. If we were to transplant courses like those at Barnbougle onto California’s Monterey Peninsula, one can easily imagine green fees soaring well beyond $300.

Moreover, Australia’s diverse landscapes have given rise to unforgettable golf holes and distinctive playing experiences.

Recently, we stumbled upon a captivating video by Air Adventure Tours, advocating for adding Cape Wickham’s 18th hole to your golfing bucket list—a sentiment that’s hard to dispute if you’ve had the fortune of teeing off on King Island.

This led us to ponder what an Australian golf bucket list might look like.

While it would undoubtedly include must-play courses and iconic golf holes, we couldn’t help but wonder about other golf-related experiences deserving a spot on this list. What additional feats or activities in the realm of Australian golf should one strive to accomplish in a lifetime? It’s easy to compile a list of courses to play, but we’re curious about the specifics.
