Walkabout Golf & Country Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2003

Walkabout Golf & Country Club: You won't find Ayers Rock or any kangaroos during this particular Florida walkabout, but an exciting and challenging golf course does lie in wait - originally designed by Perry Dye and completed by Australian golfer, Jan Stephenson, there is a thoroughly natural feel to this layout - planned housing has yet to be established - your progress here should be easier than a true Aussie-desert walkabout (see Did You Know section below), but with many carries to make over small lakes and wetland, and water and swamp tightly lining several fairways, there is challenge enough for most golfers - several hazards are highlighted but also obscured by tufts of pampas grass, so consulting your course guide could pay useful dividends - although sections of the front-nine are played in relative proximity to nearby I-4, the back-nine is played away from this busy highway and provides a quieter journey into the Florida outback - flanking the good-width, gently rippling fairways and defending the subtly sloping putting surfaces you'll need to avoid plenty of good-quality bunkering, which get deeper the closer you are to the greens - the beauty of Walkabout's unspoilt lakeland, woodland and wetland environment continually enhances the attractiveness of this excellent golf course, whilst also contributing to its undoubted challenges.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
