Welcome to a Blue Water Paradise… Port Stephens is an idyllic coastal nirvana where the emphasis is on peace and pleasure. It is a naturally gifted region that is fast becoming Australia’s golfing paradise with its beautiful and memorable courses. Aside from the golf, you’ll find a lot of sweet spots in Port Stephens. Swing by the Marina, hook into some fresh seafood, drive over the dunes and enjoy a slice of the good life – it is always above par.
You will enjoy 3 beautiful and challenging rounds of golf at some of the best courses in the region. The standard will be set at the world-class Pacific Dunes Golf Club where you will play on perfectly manicured fairways and greens. Next up, Nelson Bay Golf Club which is recognized as a ‘must-experience’ when visiting Port Stephens. To finish, you’ll be dodging water hazards as much as kangaroos at Horizons Golf Club, a championship course surrounded by natural bushland.
Along the way enjoy a wonderful range of sightseeing and activities, including Fort Scratchley, a fascinating coastal WWII fort-turned-museum, and an optional twilight dinner cruise where you can catch an array of colours over the water as the sun sets.
If you are looking for an easy destination to escape the fast-paced city life look no further than here. Extend your relaxing vacation for a further 6 days on our Hunter Valley post-tour where you will enjoy epicurean indulgences in the picturesque hinterlands.

Wake up in paradise and enjoy a leisurely breakfast before a fantastic day of golf.
A pure golf course sculpted out of native scrub land that was once a sand mine, Pacific Dunes truly is a beauty to behold. With a fantastic range of risk and reward holes, the course calls upon the daring to give it everything they’ve got whilst offering safer alternatives to those less willing to take a risk. A longtime favourite, the 3rd is a right dogleg that sweeps to a small raised green for a short par four.
Whilst the golfers tee up their first round, non-golfers will glide through the bay’s crystal waters on a Dolphin Discovery Cruise. Playful dolphins will frolic along beside the boat as you enjoy the cool seabreeze and scenic surroundings of the harbour.
Enjoy an evening at lesiure. You’re a 5 minute walk from Nelson Bay Bowling & Recreation Club if you’re after a hearty dinner and perhaps a casual game of bowls.

A very professionally run golf tour company that provides a fantastic mix of golf and sightseeing, whilst meeting other people that shared the same interests.
I would recommend to anyone to travel with Go Golfing. The accommodation was first class. The golf courses were absolutely brilliant and in mint condition.
The trip was a fantastic experience, the people and hosts were terrific. This was our first tour so we had no specific expectations. The golf courses were exceptional, the accommodation throughout was excellent and couldn’t be faulted.
I chose this trip because it was an organised combination of golf and sightseeing with 5-star hotels and highly rated golf courses that we would most likely never otherwise have the opportunity to play.
Highlights are hard to pinpoint as the whole trip was a highlight. As a first-timer with Go Golfing, I think the trip was well-organised.
As a first-time non-golfer, the trip was great. The accommodation was excellent, the people were all very friendly, the host was excellent and looked after us well.
