The sporting showpiece of the unofficial capital of Central Australia is the Alice Springs Golf Club which boasts one of the world’s finest desert venues set in the foothills of the majestic MacDonnell Ranges. There are several quality hotels backing onto the course.

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.

The fully equipped Club provides a restaurant, bars, a well stocked pro-shop, a floodlit driving range and putting green.

The abundance of natural wetlands provides a stern test and fair challenge for competent beginners through to professional players, according to designer Ross Watson. Long hitters are rewarded on several holes but accuracy, ball placement and imagination are the keys to scoring well.

The course begins in picturesque and natural wetlands on holes 1 and 2 before entering into the parkland stretch from holes 3 through to 8. The finishing hole on the front nine rejoins the open wetland flavour of the site back to the clubhouse.

The back nine has a mix of residential holes with accompanying wetlands from 10 through to 15 before entering the more open holes 16, 17 and 18. The short Par 3 17th is one of the most memorable on the card with a shortish iron required to find an island green set amongst the natural water features.
