Bonville – The Augusta of Australia

By July 31, 2013Latest News


Just in case you didn’t know, putting Golf Getaway to air every week- Sunday’s at 1 on One – is hard work and keeps both Mirror and myself very busy.

This is why sometimes one of us has to give the other a stop and slap moment. Hey you- slap- have a look at that! We had one of those this week at Bonville at Coffs Harbour. With the show we’ve both been very lucky to play some amazing golf courses – like The Hills and Jack’s Point in Queenstown, NZ. Sanctuary Cove – The Pines on the Gold Coast, Kooindah Waters on the Central Coast and many more. But I have to say that right up there in the true legend arena is Bonville.

This amazing 6,100 metre 18 holer was literally carved out of Australian native trees and rain forest. Every hole feels like a signature hole. It’s so pretty you don’t even need to hit a golf ball.

Being there in winter we almost felt like we had the course to ourselves and staying right here on the course all you want to do is grab a cart and go play it- every daylight minute. And when you have to stop playing- yeah ok, the One Hat restaurant, Flooded Gums isn’t a bad distraction.

Thanks for having us Bonville the memory of your splendour will live long after the score I hit – although it was good enough to beat Mirror so that was a nice bonus.

If you ever get a chance to play Bonville – do it.
