The sporting showpiece of the unofficial capital of Central Australia is the stunning Alice Springs Golf Club which boasts one of the world's finest desert venues set in the foothills of the majestic MacDonnell Ranges. With several quality hotels backing onto the course, why not stay a couple of days and enjoy the magnificent scenery.
The Alice Springs course has earned rave reviews from golfers world-wide as a course of unique charm blended with some subtle severity. Accuracy is a must and even the boldest hitters must harness their power and replace it with discretion to ensure a safe landing, rather than challenge the menacing rocky outcrops which lurk at the edges of several of the fairways.
Australia's golfing legend, Peter Thomson, with his business partner, Michael Wolveridge, designed and constructed the course during the early 1980's. It is currently rated 53rd in Australia by Australian Golf Digest, in the world's top ten desert courses and one of Australia's top 25 golf resorts.
