  • Royal Adelaide Golf Club

Over the years, our Four Reds golf breaks have become some of our most popular golf holiday packages, with both domestic and international clients. Launched in partnership with the South Australian Tourism Commission and all four Golf Clubs, the Four Reds golf packages aim to promote two of Adelaide’s best assets; it’s golf and its wine. Golfers from all over the world have come to Adelaide to experience its exceptional golf courses and world-class wine, in one golfing experience.

This unique holiday offers golfers the opportunity to play 18 holes on Glenelg Golf Club, Grange Golf Club, Kooyonga Golf Club and Royal Adelaide Golf Club, and after each game, enjoy a bottle of premium South Australian wine (valued at $100 or more), as well as a local, artisan tasting platter.

With all four of Adelaide’s premium golf courses located just a 20 minute drive from Adelaide’s CBD, golfers can stay in the heart of the city and have just a short drive to the golf course each morning. Alternatively, there is the option to stay in Glenelg, Adelaide’s vibrant beachside suburb. Take an early morning walk with the locals, along the tree-lined esplanade – spotting dolphins along the way - prior to playing a round of golf.

The 72 Hole Golf Challenge offers the perfect golf break for large groups of golfers seeking a unique, social golf and travel experience. Feedback from past groups regarding the Four Reds Golf Packages, has consistently been outstanding, with many opting to re-book the following year. It would be hard to match this great-value golf and wine experience anywhere in the world.

Any Four Reds golf trip can be tailored to meet your needs. Let us know what kind of accommodation you are looking for, how many days you would like to stay and how many rounds of golf you would like to play. Golf Explorer will take care of the rest.
