Day 3 - Golf - Royal Adelaide

Royal Adelaide Golf Course (includes 1 Round of Golf and cart hire for 2 guests), club hire additional if required.

With a core of outstanding holes and an unmistakably adventurous streak, Royal Adelaide provides a platform for creative shots and an extremely enjoyable golfing experience.

The course retains the distinctive character of a comparatively open links courses, an attribute by no means common in this country. It is this character which means members and visitors alike recognize as a priceless asset in a golf course situated so close to a major city. Taken as a whole, the Seaton course, with its wide-open spaces, poses more problems than appear at first sight, except under the most benign conditions. Most members are more than happy to complete their round having played to their handicaps.
