Adelaide Four Reds
A great day on and off the course can very easily turn into one of the great trips, and Adelaide should have its place on every golfer’s bucket list. It’s why Adelaide’s mouth-watering Four Reds experience should be on every golfers to do list.
The idea from the big four of South Australian golf was to team up with some of Australia’s best wines to create an experience to look forward to and, ultimately savour. And so, the ‘Four Reds’ golf tour was born.
At the pointy end of the golf experience, you’ve got four courses in Australia’s top 40 to choose from, but it would be unfair to rule out other courses given time and opportunity.
The team at 19th Hole Golf Tours knows the best golf courses, day trips, attractions and accommodation deals in Adelaide. We would love to share our expertise with you and would be delighted to put together your golf holiday package.
Glenelg is a beautifully presented golf course that celebrates the good shots, maybe even average ones, but will rain hell upon your score should you take on parts of the course not marked for mowing. It’s a pure test of golf for all levels, but not a place to fear for higher handicappers. The mantra for play here is “Fairways good, long grass bad”.
Royal Adelaide is consistently in the world’s top 100 courses. South Australia’s most iconic golf course because it has everything, including a commuter train which passes through the course during the day – it is quiet though, so no excuses here for the fast, subtle greens. Royal Adelaide is literally unmissable for every golfer.
As you would expect from one of Alister Mackenzie’s disciples, this is a gorgeous place to play golf on an utterly beautiful track. The clubhouse is magnificent but fails to overshadow the golf course, which may be described as a genuine examination of your golfing ability.
The Grange East is a Greg Norman course and is vastly different to Clayton redesign of the West course. The course is both enjoyable and challenging.
You’ll play four of the most prestigious private golf courses in Australia: Glenelg, Grange, Kooyonga and Royal Adelaide.
At the end of each 18 holes, enjoy a bottle of specially paired premium wine along with a tasting plate sourced from the gourmet producers of South Australia.
