In support of businesses impacted by the bushfires
Come and join the "Road Train of Travelling Golfers" as we travel from Melbourne through East Gippsland and up to Narooma on the Sapphire Coast of New South Wales. Along the way we will play some golf and support the local businesses and golf courses that have been impacted by the bush fires.
The golf will be booked and organised by The Travelling Golfer, but you are free to choose and book your own accommodation. After golf you can dine with us at local pubs, clubs and restaurants and celebrate this beautiful region of Australia.
This is not a commercial tour, it is simply The Travelling Golfer using its reach to support other Australians. We feel there is no better time to travel within our home country than in 2020.
