A partnership between Tourism Australia, state tourism bodies and the golf industry, Great Golf Courses of Australia showcases the best of Australia’s golf product to international markets, leveraged through global trade, distribution, marketing and PR networks.

Nestled at the foot of the Great Dividing Range, Bonville is often referred to as Australia’s Augusta for its meandering waterways, towering gums, rainforest and manicured gardens. Voted Australia’s Favourite Golf Course’ in Golf Australia Magazine’s reader poll 7 years in a
row, the property has long been a beloved destination for domestic golfers. In 2024 the resort will look to increase its international market share through a membership with Great Golf Courses of Australia and greater partnership with Tourism Australia.

Bonville Golf Resort is renowned for its overall experience, encompassing friendly, professional staff, comfortable accommodation overlooking the 1st hole, award-winning dining (still the only golf course to have been awarded a Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide Hat), and a
simply beautiful golf course that ebs and flows along natural waterways, through pockets of rainforest which open to isolated fairways, flanked by striking flooded gums and colourful gardens.

Home to many of Australia’s most iconic native species including koalas, echidnas, kookaburras and goannas, Bonville remains an oasis of tranquility, a place where people gather to escape the madding crowd, a place where time slows down.
