My Traveling Tournament Takes Us To Australia

If you have never been to Australia to play golf, then you are easily missing out on one of the only things I consider a "Must Do" for most golfers. Professional golfers like Jason Day and Greg Norman grew up playing Australian golf courses and it is no surprise that they are some of the best today and if not ever. Though many people do not know this, but the golf courses in the Blue Mountains of NSW Australia are some of the most beautiful in the world. Courses like Ellerston are ranked among the best in Australia and they continue to be the "home" course for tourists from all over the world.

When golfers from different countries flock to Australia, they often focus on golf courses like Newcastle and Royal Sydney because they are some of the more famous courses out there but other courses that deserve your attention is Terrey Hills and The Vintage. I was lucky enough to play all of these courses in Australia and I was able to experience what it truly feels like to play golf. I literally became addicted to what they had to offer and this led me to finally setting up a group tournament that my friends and I would play every year.

One of the only reasons why people hesitate to go to Australia to play golf is that they have no idea where they will be staying. I must admit, when I first went to Australia to simply just play golf, I was clueless as to where I can stay. I was with 11 other guys and we were holding our annual traveling tournament. Our little tournament basically has us traveling to a different city or country every year and we stay for almost ten days playing different golf courses.

For example, last year we were in California and we played 10 different golf courses from San Francisco all the way down to Los Angeles. Though our tournaments were never really serious, we certainly always wanted to win. We have been playing these traveling tournaments for almost six years now and there simply was no other place prettier than Australia and their golf courses.

This year we find ourselves in Australia and I knew I had to find the best place for us to stay. That is when I stumbled upon Accommodated and I was taking my time looking at their homes. When I saw the numerous amounts of reviews and statements saying that this simply was the place to go, I knew right away that my friends and I found our place. The home that we stayed in was amazing, it was clean and definitely was being taken care of. I highly recommend that if you find yourself wanting to play golf in Australia, that you do not let anything stop you. The courses are amazing, the place is beautiful and at the same time, no matter what home you choose from Accommodation, it is guaranteed to be your home away from home.
