Golfing in the Adelaide Park Lands

You'll play on Kikuyu fairways and Santa Ana Couch tees – hot-weather grasses that hold up all year round. And the dense thin blades of Bentgrass greens give you a felt-like smoothness to your putt.

Mature Australian gum trees line the fairway, which punish a wayward drive, and keep you on the straight and narrow. Rolling bunkered greens ensure no hole approach shot feels too easy. And with no water hazards and little rough off the fairways, the South Course is simple to navigate. This makes for faster play and less lost balls.

Plus, you'll get your chance on short Par 3s (hole-in-one, anyone!) and genuine 3-shot Par 5s to vary up the pace.

"A traditional style course with huge trees
and a magnificent city backdrop in pristine condition."
