Denyer’s daring Nullarbor drive
National celebrity and Channel Seven journalist Grant Denyer is carting across the plains of Nullarbor in an effort to be the first man to successfully navigate the world’s longest golf course in a golf car.
Although golf cars are generally made for golf courses, the Nullarbor is different.

This unique course spans a distance of 1365 kilometres, starting at Kalgoorlie in Western Australia and ending at Ceduna in South Australia.
The course features holes in each participating town along the Eyre Highway and has been one of Western Australia’s leading tourist attractions since it came to fruition in 2006.
Golf Cart World (NSW), dealer for the E-Z-GO brand in Australia, supplied the Sunrise weatherman and sporting enthusiast with a modified E-Z-GO RXV.
The petrol E-Z-GO RXV has been modified to reach speeds of up to 65kph and has been fitted with custom tyres to withstand the vehicle’s pace on this brutal endeavour.
David Smith of Golf Cart World said this vehicle was modified to not only get across Nullarbor, but to do it quickly.
“Grant needed the vehicle to travel a significant distance in a short time.”
On his Twitter account Mr Denyer tweeted – “1380km across the Nullarbor, who said golf isn’t an extreme sport.”
To keep an eye on Grant’s journey watch Sunrise (Channel 7) from 6am to 9am daily.
