Golfing Travel

Golfing may have originated in Scotland, but this sporting titan has settled its way into some of the most exotic areas of the world. Swain Destinations can bring you all-access to some of the most desirable golf courses to be played in the world. Whether you’re looking for an all-golf focused vacation, or just a tee time on a leisurely day, our Swain Specialists are here to cater your vacation to suit your needs.

Some of the featured golf courses around the world that we highlight are located in Australia and New Zealand. Home to six of Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses in the World, Australia’s varied landscapes come with an equally exciting array of courses. If you’re looking to play on a golf course overlooking the Great Barrier Reef or on rugged cliffs adjacent to the vast Pacific Ocean, you can trust that Swain Destinations can cater your ideal golfing experience. Another ideal golf location is New Zealand. A country made up of pristine landscapes and breathtaking views, your golf vacation here is sure to be unlike any other. With investments made to creating world ranked golf courses, New Zealand is the ideal location to surround yourself with cascading vistas and lush greenery as you prepare to tee off.
