Our International Tours

Go Golfing is expanding our international destinations with more than 60 international golf and dual-themed tours scheduled from 2023 onwards. Our luxury and royal tour programs are now dual-themed to ensure that our non-golfers also have a fantastic time on tour. We engage with local golf and destination specialists who share our passion for world-class guest service and bucket list experiences.  We seek to immerse ourselves and embrace the local culture, arts, language, entertainment, and culinary options to experience the best of every destination.

 “Our international golf tours play many of the world’s best golf courses and include dynamic, additional tour themes such as wildlife, battlefields, horse racing, history, arts and culture, food and wine, music and cultural festivals, photography, rugby and bridge.”

Go Golfing guests can choose from LUXURY 13-night/14-day tours (for up to 30 guests), ultra-luxury ROYAL Tours (maximum of 20 guests) and shorter ENCORE tours of 6x nights/7x days. Guests get to play the world’s best courses and often enjoy special privileges.

From New Zealand to the Northern Territory, India, Hawaii or Japan, just to name a few, there’s a Go Golfing experience to suit everyone.

Our Go Golfing tours give guests the chance to travel with like-minded golfers who want to play and have fun on and off the course. Everything is organised for you, with friendly tour hosts working with top local guides to show you the best a region or country has to offer.

There are plenty of activities for golfers and non-golfers alike. If you’re travelling with friends, Go Golfing can cater for draw requests to allow you to play with them and everyone else.

Australian experiences include the magnificent Golf and The Ghan, which starts in Darwin, where guests are whisked away to discover the Top End’s greatest treasures between rounds of golf. The tour continues as guests board The Ghan to journey through the red centre on a 2979km all-inclusive rail journey, stopping along the way for incredible day tours and experiences, before arriving in Adelaide to play some of Australia’s best golf courses, including Royal Adelaide and The Grange, and take a day trip to the Barossa Valley.

The bespoke tours also tie in with other major sports and entertainment events like Melbourne Cup, Rugby World Cup, Australia Open, Formula One and many more.
