Bonville named as Australian golfers favourite
The public have spoken…and Bonville Golf Resort is foremost in their thoughts.
At least that was the result of a survey by a leading Australian golf publication which set out to find Australia’s 50 favourite golf courses.
Forget the rankings, where golf course designers and many others with a ‘vested interest’ choose their favourite courses – and perennially have them at the top of ‘their’ rankings.
No, this time around Golf Australia magazine asked the golfing community to vote for their three favourite Australian courses.
And it was difficult to disagree when the beautiful Bonville Golf Resort near Coffs Harbour came out as No 1 in their choices, followed by Tasmania’s fabled Barnbougle Dunes with the special Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne coming in at No 3.
Naturally over the moon with the news, Bonville Golf Resort’s long-serving general manager Brad Daymond could barely contain himself:
“We are thrilled that the Australian golfing public has chosen Bonville as their favourite course,” he said.
“For the past 15 years the Bonville team have been working on incremental improvements to all aspects of the property to ensure a high quality Bonville experience for all our guests.”
“Topping the list for passionate everyday golfers as their favourite place to play is a great outcome.”
“It is just so rewarding to know that we have Australia’s No. 1 golfing destination right here on the Coffs Coast!”
Daymond once worked as the professional at Bonville and has worked his way through the ranks to become a popular head of this course many regard as one of the most picturesque in the world.
Besides the golf layout they have amassed awards for their outstanding restaurant and catering as well as for hosting weddings besides also securing the title as Australia’s most beautiful mainland golf course for the 16th year running.
“Bonville celebrates its 25th birthday in early January and what a great award to win on the eve of such a milestone,” said Daymond.
