Glenelg is a golf course where everything just makes sense. Towering pine trees line the fairways, the bunkering is a highlight with imposing walls, undulating land, and wetland areas are both scenic and hold purpose. The course is well established and often regarded as equal with any of the top 4 courses in the region.
With wonderful views of the Fleurieu coastline, Links Lady Bay offers golfers an enjoyable layout with cleverly routed holes that are long in length, but generally more forgiving them some of the other courses in this region. This enjoyable layout will make you want to play more than one round - so consider staying onsite for the best experience.
Royal Adelaide is a beautiful and challenging layout set between sandy craters, natural pitfalls and pine trees. The course has had several designers over its history, however, it cannot be understated the influence Dr Alister MacKenzie's has had in making this one of golf's great venues.
Wind your way down leafy lanes, stopping at villages dappled in light. The towns of Aldgate, Stirling, Oakbank, Birdwood, Crafers, Mount Barker and Hahndorf are all within an hour’s drive away from Adelaide and are brimming with wildlife encounters and cultural discoveries.
The Fleurieu Peninsula is full of world famous wine and stunning beaches. The coastline offers some of South Australia's most scenic experiences sprawling with native wildlife, you can even swim with tuna aptly-named the Ferraris of the sea.
Glenelg Beach is Adelaide's most popular city beach, offering a buzzing vibe and great atmosphere for all to enjoy. Renowned for its wide beach, stunning sunsets, rich heritage and bustling shops, sidewalk cafés and loads of entertainment.
Carved into a limestone hill at the heart of McLaren Vale and etched into its history is the five-star winery, meadery and restaurant with seductive locations for spectacular occasions.
When staying in Glenelg, dining at Sammys is a must! Modern seafood staples & share platters are served in a glass-walled room with expansive water views. Pick a good seat, and select a good dining time as the sunset views here are sensational.
Set amongst a tranquil lake, gorgeous vines and 200 year old gum trees, Serafino is the perfect place to stay, relax, and indulge.
