I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.
Come and swing that club
October is Golf Month, a national campaign to drive golf participation,
that invites anyone whether beginner, advanced or anyone in between, to come and play
Throughout the entire month of October, golf clubs and facilities across the country will open their doors and welcome you to take part in a Golf Month activity.
Golf Month is an Australia-wide celebration of golf, so whether you're new to the game, returning from a break or playing occasionally, there's an activity just for you. If you have never played before, give it a try, you never know, it may be just the sport for you. If you haven't played for a while, dust off those clubs and come and play! And if you are a champion, get one of your friends to come along and show them what it's all about.
To find out about all the different activities please check here, just put in your postcode and it will take you to all the different clubs and golf courses. There will be Come & Try opportunities, on-course tuition, Golf Clinics, discounted games, competitions and more. Keep checking periodically as activities are being added. Check out school holiday golf activities too.
