In our last email we asked where you wanted to travel to...
And we're pleased to announce the results. We had some surprising destinations poll strongly, as well as some that were expected. Onto the votes;
MOST VOTED FOR INTERNATIONAL TOURS
Winner - The clear winner was from just across the ditch at beautiful Queenstown. A great choice and unsurprising winner given the short flight times, amazing scenery, fantastic golf courses, and much more.
Runner Up - Another beautiful destination for golf and holiday, Hawaii was the second most popular vote. Who wouldn't want to play courses like Turtle Bay, Kapalua, Mauna Kea, and Waialae followed by cocktails on the beach???
Third - Following closely in third place is one of our favourite places for a golf trip, Las Vegas. Live it up each night with the casinos, the shows and entertainment, the food, and play golf all day at courses such as TPC Summerlin, TPC Las Vegas, Wolf Creek, Cascata and many many more.
TOP LOCAL TOURNAMENT DESTINATIONS
Winner - Hotly contested with the top three separated by one vote each, with the winner being Mornington Peninsula. With courses such as Moonah Links, St Andrews Beach, The Dunes, The National, and many more, it's not hard to see why this was voted heavily for.
Runner Up - Coming in second, a favourite or bucket lister of just about every golfer, Barnbougle. With two courses ranked in the top 4 in the country, along with a newly added 14 hole short course, beautiful on site accommodation and excellent dining, it's one of our favourites as well.
Third - In third place, a little surprising but maybe it has something to do with the copious wineries and breweries in the area, it's the Hunter Valley. The Vintage and Cypress Lakes lead the way with golf but just down the road is also Horizons, Pacific Dunes and Nelson Bay.
Where to from here?
We're excited to say that we have found some room in our 2023 calendar to add some of the above destinations that were most voted for and we can't wait. We're still finalising a few things and will make announcements once confirmed but here is how our 2023 is shaping up.
