Go Local!

Hartfield Country Club

We all love to travel. In fact, travelling abroad for most Australians is a right of passage! And I'm sure many of you have itchy feet wanting to get back out there and explore the world and it's fabulous golf courses. I sure am!

But with International travel at a stand still for who know's how long, this brings about fantastic opportunities to for our local golf and tourism industries to thrive. I couldn't count the amount of people who I have spoken to over the last few months in regards to travelling overseas for their golf trips in the near future. Unfortunately that includes a lot where we have had to cancel their overseas trips for the foreseeable future. The great unknown is when will we be able to take off internationally again? Nobody knows.

The great news is that here in Australia, we have so many fantastic places to visit. There are places that you would have thought to visit but haven't got around to it. Maybe you have visited previously but would love to get back and tick off what you missed last time. Maybe you've never even considered travelling to some of these great locations. Now is the time to get out and explore some of the local destinations and experiences that our beautiful country has to offer. Not to mention the world class golf courses that we have on offer as well!

The Australian Tourism industry is in disarray currently, as are a lot of other industries. The best thing we can all do is go local and support our country. There are a lot of small tourism, hospitality and golf providers that will be struggling for a long time due to this crisis we find ourselves in the middle of. So let's jump in the car and explore those little destinations that offer so much. 

Here is a list of our favourite golfing destinations within Australia. Some are well known, some not so much. But if you have the opportunity to visit any of them over the next little while, I know they would be very grateful.
