Stay - The Langham Hotel or similar

Day 2 - Play Royal Melbourne Golf Club

The West course at Royal Melbourne Golf Club is widely acknowledged as the best course in Australia.

The course has an understated simplicity and has previously hosted numerous national and international tournaments.

Day 3 - Play Ocean Dunes, King Island

Fly to King Island from Melbourne and play the Ocean Dunes Course. King Island has become a golf destination that features high on the 'must play' bucket list. Six of the wholes on the Ocean Dunes course are right against the coast, with the par threes at the 4th and 10th vying for "signature hole" status. Overlooking the Great Southern Ocean, this will be a very special stay and play links experience.

Stay - Ocean Dunes Resort King Island

Day 4 - Play Cape Wickham Golf Club

Until 2015, the only golf facility on the Island was a modest 18-hole course at King Island Golf & Bowling Club. Designed by Mike DeVries, the first five holes of Cape Wickham wind their way around the Cape Farewell headland before moving inland with the next eight holes set against sand hills. Hole 14 to 18 then move towards the imposing Cape Wickham Lighthouse with the best kept until last as the narrow 18th fairway doglegs right around a sandy bay to the home green.

Stay - Ocean Dunes Resort King Island

Day 5 - Fly to Tasmania and Explore

Enjoy a day off the links with a free day to explore the island of Tasmania. Tasmania was separated from the Australian mainland approximately twelve to 15000 years ago when the great ice caps melted and sea levels rose to flood the land-bridge. Now, it's one of the world’s last accessible wilderness frontiers. Indulge in history, vast wilderness areas, Australia's most spectacular mountains, dazzling beaches and the freshest food and wine imaginable.

Stay - Barnbougle Lost Farm

Day 6 - Play Barnbougle Dunes

Mike Keiser saw the opportunity for a Bandon Dunes-style resort to be created on this incredible dune land on the northern coast of Tasmania. After some persuasion, the farmer who owned the land, engaged Tom Doak and Mike Clayton to create a links course on this sandy base and Barnbougle Dunes emerged. It's the closest thing to a seaside links in Australia and they've created something remarkable.

Stay - Barnbougle Lost Farm

Day 7 - Play Lost Farm

Just a short pitching wedge across the river from The Dunes, lies Barnbougle’s second instalment, Lost Farm. Despite Lost Farm’s close proximity to The Dunes, it is remarkably different, featuring 20-holes that wind along the coast and through the coastal dunes. You don't have to be a golfer to enjoy the beauty that Lost Farm has to offer! 

Stay - Barnbougle Lost Farm

Day 8 - Fly from Tasmania to Melbourne

Take an internal flight from Tasmania to Melbourne. Located on the banks of the Yarra River, The Langham Melbourne features an indoor swimming pool with views across the city. Guests can relax at the Chuan Spa, which offers a range of massages and beauty treatments. The fully equipped fitness center includes a sauna and steam room. Melba Restaurant also offers panoramic views in a stylish, relaxed setting.

Stay - The Langham Hotel or similar

Day 9 - Play Kingston Heath Golf Club

This challenge begins with a long, demanding par four which is soon followed by Kingston Heath's shortest par four and the variation is compelling to say the least. The same can be said for the rest of the course as Kingston Heath requires you to play strategic golf. "You really have to think your way around" -  Søren Kjeldsen.

Stay - The Langham Hotel or similar

Day 10 - A Day Free to Relax

Melbourne is a blend of bustling laneways, world-class restaurants and captivating museums. The locals love their coffee, and serve it up in abundance at cosy cafes. There's always a sense of excitement here, whether its in the city's fascinating flavors or fierce sporting rivalries. Attend a sports event, drink a cocktail on a rooftop and uncover the stories hidden within Melbourne's art-filled alleyways.

Stay - The Langham Hotel or similar

Day 11 - Play Victoria Golf Club

The Victoria Golf Club has an incredible history in world golf. In 1954, club members, Doug Bachli and Peter Thomson set the Club on the world stage when Bachli won the British Amateur Championship and Thomson won the first of his five British Open Championships. Both trophies sat side-by-side on the mantelpiece in the Members Bar! Also, Victoria’s 15th hole is one of the best. It is perhaps the most confusing of all the sub 300 meter holes because the green is drivable for the longest hitters and many can get close to the green. 

Stay - The Langham Hotel or similar
