Ever wondered what other members think about Qantas Golf Club? This month, we chat with another one of our members to find out about their experiences so far.
What do you enjoy most about the Qantas Golf Club?
I enjoy the opportunity to play golf at courses, both in Australia and other parts of the world, that I would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience. Additionally, I meet a range of interesting people who share the love of golf at events that are well planned and managed by Qantas Golf Club.
Best Qantas Golf Cub experience you’ve had thus far?
The 2015 tournament in Las Vegas was a great experience. The total package was outstanding. Jenny and I enjoyed our first trip to Vegas and to be hosted by Robbie from Qantas Golf Club, who has local knowledge and experience, was special. The food and wine at the organised social events was outstanding, and the golf courses exceeded my expectations. Shadow Creek in particular was exclusive and a very beautiful oasis in the desert.
You’ve played in several Challenge Series events across the country to date. Whats been the standout for you thus far?
Playing at The Grange, my home club, the day after the Women’s Open was great. The course was in immaculate condition, the greens were slick and pin placements difficult (a real challenge for a Wednesday golfer such as myself). Interstate I particularly enjoyed Kingston Heath.
What’s your ultimate Golf Holiday destination?
So far I would have to say Las Vegas closely followed by Queenstown New Zealand. This year I will add China to my golfing experience, so for me there is no ultimate – many more great golfing destinations to come is something to look forward to.
Who would be in your ideal Four Ball?
Any of my local golf groups – good mates, a few laughs and a beer or two after the round. Also meeting new and interesting people on the tee at Qantas Golf Club event is quite ideal.
