If a holiday break doesn’t equate to separation from your weekly round of golf – and you’re a member of another club in Australia and hold a Golf Link handicap – some of the best golf courses in Adelaide are on your doorstep and open to you, especially on a Sunday.
One of the finest is the historic Kooyonga Golf Club in Lockleys, home to luminaries like the late Sir Donald Bradman and host to a string of major tournaments over the years.
The championship golf course, laid out over a sandy, undulating parcel of land and offering world-class facilities, is renowned for its fast though true greens and year-round playability; while its complementary service excellence ensures that visitors feel like members and are made to feel welcome during their round and when relaxing with a post-game drink and snack in the clubhouse.
You might also be interested in the Four Reds package, which invites interstate and overseas golfers to play Adelaide’s four premier courses – Kooyonga, Royal Adelaide, Glenelg and Grange. A fine South Australian red and a food platter is paired with each golf club, to be enjoyed at leisure after the round.
For those with less time – and, indeed, are not members of another club – the Kooyonga Foundation Golf Academy offers visitors the very best in coaching services with state-of-the-art training facilities and integrated teaching technology.
The first of its kind in South Australia, the indoor academy opened in 2016 and draws on the skills of your dedicated professional coach and a mix of technologies such as Trackman and high speed cameras to analyse all aspects of your game, highlight weaknesses and provide tips going forward.
