Australia is the sixth largest country in the world but it has the world’s lowest population density with a mere two people sharing each square kilometre. Australia's biggest attraction is its stunningly natural beauty with more than 7,000 beaches and some of the most diverse landscapes you’ll find anywhere in the world.

The Aussie’s even have the world's longest continuous fence. The 'dingo fence', is six feet high and more than 5,000 kilometres in length. It’s designed to keep the sheep safe and the whingeing Poms out!

According to golf historian, the late Michael Hobbs, "it was Scots or people of Scottish descent who brought golf to Australia. Credit is sometimes given to James Graham from Fife, Scotland. He began organizing a little golf in Melbourne in the late 1840s, while John Dunsmore played in Sydney a few years later. Alex Reid introduced the game down south in Tasmania during the 1830s, and was in at the foundation of Australia's oldest club, Bothwell, which claims 1830 as its birth date."

Nowadays golf is Australia's number one participant sport and more than 460,000 Aussies belong to a golf club. 1.3 million people or approximately 10% of the adult Australian population play golf. With more than 1,800 golf courses to choose from, the variety is staggering. Given that Australia is a vast country, it’s surprising to note that a good number of the nation's best courses are located in one small area of Melbourne, known simply as the Sand Belt.
