Melbourne Cup Golf Tour

30 October – 04 November, 2016

6 Days – 5 Nights – 2 Rounds of Golf

It’s the race that stops a nation and while most of Australia stops to watch the race, there’s nothing like being at Flemington on the first Tuesday in November for the Melbourne Cup. Excitement builds to fever pitch when at 3pm the nation draws to a halt for 200 heart-pounding seconds.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival is an unparalleled celebration of racing, food and wine, fashion and glamour. We have secured undercover reserved grandstand seating opposite the winning post for both the Melbourne Cup and Oaks Day.

When not at the races you will be playing Melbourne’s famed sandbelt courses. This popular tour also features an evening Tramcar Dinner and a final night presentation dinner along with the fun, friendship and professionalism synonymous with Go Golfing teams. Be quick, this fully escorted Melbourne Cup Carnival Golf Tour is strictly limited to 24 and always sells out quickly.
