No matter what your level of play is, or your budget, you will have plenty of different resorts to choose from throughout Australia.
Heritage Golf & Country Club
The Heritage Golf & Country Club is located a short 45-minute drive away from Melbourne’s central business district, so is easily accessible.

As well as a stunning 18-hole golf course, there is also the Sebel Heritage Yarra Valley hotel that overlooks the course and Pro Shop. There are 102 luxurious rooms and suites available, as well as there being a choice of bars and restaurants that you can relax in.

The Victoria Golf Club
The Victoria Golf Club was established in 1903 by Billy Meader, and the course was designed by Meader & Damman. The course is 18 holes spread over gently undulating hills, and lined with trees, meaning that there are a few gentle hills to walk up and down. The onsite accommodation on offer is made up of 15 private rooms, all with private en suite facilities. There is a lot of history on offer at this course that is on display for all to see. The course is very popular and very accommodating for visitors.
These are just a few resorts and golf clubs that are on offer throughout Australia; there are so many top quality resorts that it is hard to list them all. You may want to start reviewing all of the courses yourself; it could be a good excuse to get away every weekend! Where ever you decide to stay you can enjoy some great golf, quality accommodation, and pamper yourself with a spa, or relax in the bar or restaurant. Australia is certainly a top golfing destination worth visiting.
