New 2014 Escorted Tour to Australia Combines World 100 Golf with Iconic Sightseeing

We know, this has to be good. It’s a long way to Australia.

Fair enough; have a look below at “The Best of Australia 2014 (Escorted)”. If you like your vacation golf chosen from the upper echelon of world 100 clubs, and combined with fully escorted luxury itinerary that includes an equally impressive schedule of sightseeing, wine touring and spectacular natural beauty, we suspect you’ll agree this experience stands out.

You’ll play two of Dr. Alister MacKenzie’s most important four layouts; Royal Melbourne which is GOLF Magazine’s world 13 and New South Wales ranked 34 (pictured left). You’ll play the club that put Tom Doak on the map, in Tasmanian, at Barnbougle Dunes ranked 41.  Next door at Barnbougle Lost Farm we’ve got world 82 by Coore & Crenshaw.  Royal Melbourne neighbor Yarra Yarra is a founding member of the famed Sandbelt clubs whose design was shaped heavily by Dr. MacKenzie. We’ll see Doak’s work again at St Andrews Beach found in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula’s Cups Country.

Our tour begins officially with the Welcome Cocktail Party and Dinner on the day of arrival.  Sightseeing on Day 2 includes the famous Sydney Harbor Cruise (pictured top right) plus a guided tour of the spectacular Opera House.  Both are included in the price of the tour, along with four (4) additional sightseeing excursions.   Welcome and Farewell dinners plus six (6) additional “choice of menu” evening meals are included as well.  You’ll spend 11 nights in first class hotels like Tasmania’s The Lodge at Lost Farm, Melbourne’s Park Hyatt Hotel (pictured below), and Sydney’s Radisson Plaza Hotel.

New Melbourne, Australia Hotels

Melbourne is already spoilt in terms of golf courses being located a short drive from the “Sandbelt”; which maintains names such as Royal Melbourne and Kingston Heath, but it is now adding to its hotel options with a range of new properties that have either opened this year or that are due to open later on in the year.  It promises to keep this vibrant cosmopolitan city high on the “must-see” list of any traveller, not just golfers.  You can see more details of some of the new hotels by clicking here.  We will be especially interested to see what Gordon Ramsey creates at the new Crown Metropol.
