QUEENSLAND Rail Travel have come up with some innovative golf travel packages that let you take on some of the state’s best golf courses in the company of some Australian sporting legends.

The packages are led by the likes of former US PGA champion Wayne Grady, ex-Australian cricket captain Allan Border and international cricketers Greg Ritchie and Jimmy Maher.

The tours take in some top courses including Hamilton Island Golf Club and Paradise Palms in Cairns.

Queensland Rail Travel looks after all transport needs, whether it be by train, plane, or boat, and other arrangements.

The fly-train-drive-chip-putt packages come in two forms: a 4-day Capricorn Golf Getaway to Yeppoon and Rockhampton; while the 10-day Coastal Golf’n’Rail Adventure allows you take on courses in

Cairns, Hamilton Island, and the Sunshine Coast.

Queensland Rail Travel General Manager, Max Kruse, said the trips are an opportunity of a lifetime for golfers of all standards.

“Special packages like this don’t come up very often, so if you want to put your game to the test on some of the best layouts in the country, then you had better get in quick,” Mr Kruse said.

“Not many people get the opportunity to play a round with a former major winner, like Wayne Grady, so this is your chance to go around 18 holes with one of the greats of Australian golf.

“The 10-day package includes a round at Hamilton Island Golf Club, which is situated on Dent Island, just a short ferry ride away from the main resort.

“This is the only championship island golf course in Australia, so it really is a unique experience.”

“Guys like Allan Border, Jimmy Maher and Greg Ritchie will be a lot of fun to tour with, so I suggest anyone looking for a great golf holiday look no further than these packages.”

The next 4-day Capricorn Golf Getaway departs Brisbane on September 7, while the 10-day Coastal Golf’n’Rail Adventures leave on August 2 and November 17.
