Scarlett

I'm an Australian who has been fortunate enough to live in a few different countries and to have been able to travel widely throughout the world with my job and on holidays. My golf sticks pretty much always go with me and at last count I've been able to experience life and golf in 68 different countries and played about 600 different courses (315 of those in Australia, including all of the top 100 public access courses).

Even though I know it's highly unlikely, I love the thought of trying to play golf in every country in the world with a golf course - it's a long, long term goal.

My excuse for my 13 handicap is that I'm still working full time. My favourite golf courses include the rather diverse: Prestwick, Barnbougle Dunes, Paa-Ko Ridge, all the courses at St Andrews, and NSW Golf Club.

I'm fortunate that my parents live in Hobart, so travelling there regularly means I have the chance to play golf around Hobart regularly. Tasmania GC and RH are the stars...

King Island 20/03/2021

7th Tasmania - Best in Area
I'm going to call this a 9-ish hole links course set along the coast at the edge of Currie township. 9-ish, due to the different tees, fairways and greens employed to pro...

27th New South Wales - Best in Area
Well it says 'waters' in the name so I guess it 'does what is says on the tin': the course is built on native swamp land so there certainly are red stakes everywhere. Ins...

24th New South Wales - Best in Area
I played Killara before the renovations so can't comment on the effect they've had. The course is a private suburban members club with a parkland style course surrounded...

A younger parkland course in Canberra's northern suburbs, with plenty of lakes and creeks in play as it's name would suggest. The design is interesting but conditioning u...

A parkland course that when it opened had a resort style feel, located in the northern suburbs of Canberra. Time has taken it's toll though and the facilities and course...

This excellent course is only five minutes north of the city, on the main road. It even has the fairly new City to Gungahlin tram line running close. It's a parkland cou...

A very nice country town course that would be the equal of many metropolitan layouts. Fairways and rough were green even though I played during drought conditions; there...

Sands Torquay 17/03/2021

49th Victoria - Best in Area
This course felt like part resort and part more exclusive members course, with the design based on a links layout and with a sand base. As there were undulations, an over...

Sandy Golf Links 17/03/2021

64th Victoria - Best in Area
A sandbelt course with a bit of a difference; unfortunately. The new layout has shortened what was already a fairly short 18 holes into a bit of a mickey mouse course: pa...

There's a lot to like about Alice Springs GC: for a start, it's unexpected to find a course like this in what is a fairly small country town in regional Australia. There'...
