These courses are located on 6 continents. And in 60 countries! Can we make it? Who knows, but we are going to give it a try. Curious to find out if your home course is on our list?

All you can Golf
Traveling the world and playing golf has made for some extraordinary adventures. Like the time that we didn’t have enough cash to play Taipei Golf Club and had to hitchhike our way back to the train station! Or when we stumbled upon some of the most incredible golf that we’ve ever played at a working sheep ranch in New Zealand! Or attempting to play the world’s longest golf course and not even being able to finish because it’s too long!
During our travels, we’ve also been fortunate to have been able to play some of the world’s greatest golf courses. Courses like Bandon Dunes, Royal Melbourne, the Old Course at St Andrews, Barnbougle, Royal Portrush, and Cape Kidnappers just to name a few!
Golf in Asia
With a one-way ticket to Hong Kong, we set out on our journey. With just our golf clubs and backpacks on our backs, we traveled and played Golf in Asia from the end of February until the last day of August 2019.
We have been to Hong Kong a few times in the past and really love the city. But we had never played Golf in Hong Kong. Therefore, we thought that this familiar city would be the ideal destination to begin our golfing adventures.
Playing Golf in Taiwan didn’t turn out as we had hoped. The reason is probably twofold. First, the weather never really cooperated with us during our month-long clockwise journey around the island. And second, we hadn’t quite figured out yet how traveling and golf were going to work together.
We must admit, we didn’t know much about Golf in Malaysia before we arrived. We knew that Malaysia is a great country to travel to. But golf? We weren’t sure. What we found was an incredible surprise!
The extraordinary country of Indonesia is one of our favorite places in the world to travel to. But, with only 177 courses as of 2019, Golf in Indonesia does not offer the traveling golfer a huge amount of opportunity.
Golf in Oceania
We were excited to cross the equator and take our Golf in Oceania adventure to the Southern Hemisphere!
First up, we flew to the land of the Kiwi excited to play Golf in New Zealand. We found New Zealand to be a land full of bucket-list-worthy golf courses, honesty boxes, wind, and sheep. Plus, the warmest and most welcoming people we’ve ever met!
We didn’t plan on staying in Australia for over two years. In fact, we had a rough plan to be here for only 6 to 9 months! But COVID had other plans for us. We traveled Australia for an astonishing 798 days, racking up an impressive 50,950 kilometers on Putu, our beloved campervan that had become our home for over 2 years. And in that time, we played the most incredible Golf in Australia that the country has to offer!
