Built over 600 acres, the Bonville is often called Australia's Augusta for its site and its flora, with its magnificent gardens and trees, blackbutt, ironbark and tallowwood, and varied topography. The summit is home to the wildlife for which the country is famous, koalas, cockatoos, water dragons and goannas, and in the wallabies and kangaroos that come out into the light rough in the evenings. With a visually stunning mixture of uphill and downhill doglegs and plenty of water, the course is fun and not too difficult. A golf cart is recommended given the rolling terrain and the considerable distance that separates several greens from the next tee. The Bonville was voted Australia's most beautiful course for seven consecutive years in local golf course guides, and Australia's leading golf resort at the World Travel Awards 2006. The sprawling clubhouse is comfortable and well appointed, and the service low-key and discrete.
