Caddie fee’s vary from club to club, however please note that caddies my be paid cash on the day, so please bring enough cash to cover your caddie fee + 20% tip.
Getting Around - flights, driving and distances between destinations.
Australia is a very large country. If you are planning to visit multiple destinations during your trip, it’s important to account for travel time between cities and from your hotel to the golf course.
We have created an easy-to-read map and table to assist you in the panning process.
Can I book a drive cart?
The availability of carts on Australian courses will vary from club to club. Golf in its traditional form, from Scottish and Irish origins, is played without carts and many of the great courses in Australia have inherited this tradition.
However, should a golfer be physically unable to walk a course, carts may be made available. Please be sure to enquire about cart hire when planning your itinerary. As a general rule, golfers are required to submit their handicap during the golf booking process.
Dress Code is the final element of the game that makes it, well, golf!
Dress code may vary from course to course, but as a general rule, golf gear must be neat and casual. Collared shirts or golf polos are required for both men and women and shorts must be, at minimum, knee length.
