Groote Eylandt’s 9-hole golf course wouldn’t be out of place in a city. A team of dedicated greenkeepers ensures the picturesque fairways and greens are in top condition all year round.
The course, in the township of Alyangula a few minutes’ drive from the lodge, has beautiful beachfront holes, large natural sand traps and a water hazard that flows throughout the course.
Golfers progress through tree-lined fairways fringed by tropical coconut palms and well-established savannah woodlands that are home to birds and wildlife like wallabies and friendly frill-necked lizards.
Casual players are most welcome, and clubs, balls and carts can be hired. The clubhouse has a bar, bistro and dining room as well as Keno, gaming machines, cable television and a pool table.
