Golf in Australia
G’day mate, and welcome to Golf in Australia!
I remember exactly when I first dreamt of playing Golf in Australia. It was a Saturday afternoon in June of 1984, and a blond-haired surfer kid from Australia was charging up the leader board of the US Open, which was being contested at Winged Foot. The Great White Shark they called him. He swung the club harder than anyone that I had seen before. And he was way cooler than any of the other players! You can golf in Australia, man, that would be awesome, I can remember thinking at the time.
Over the years I’ve learned a lot more about golf Down Under. Home of Mr. Peter Thomson, one of the greatest links players of all time, as well as a wealth of the world’s greatest golf courses, a handful of true links courses, not to mention the infamous Melbourne Sandbelt, Australia is a destination that golfers from all over the world dream about.
Almost 40 years after that weekend in June, Menekse and I arrived with a one-way flight to Melbourne. Armed with a one-year visa and our golf bags on our backs, we were eager to explore and play golf in this extraordinary country!
So, when you’re ready, let’s go play golf in Australia!! After all, dreams do come true!
We happened to arrive in Melbourne at the same time as The Presidents Cup. Coincidence? Well, we will let you decide, but we did not let this chance pass us by and quickly bought a day ticket.
Not only was our day at Mornington Golf Club a day of firsts, but it absolutely epitomizes our love of golf!
