It’s been a while since our trip Down Under, but we’re excited to finally roll out the first season of our travel series, Tourist Sauce, driven by BMW. Season 1 takes you inside the greatest courses in Melbourne’s sand belt area and also makes a pit stop in Tasmania for a completely unique experience at Barnbougle.
Episodes are posted each Tuesday morning on YouTube, Twitter and here on the NLU website. A huge thanks to BMW for helping us make this happen. Without further adieu…
The boys set off for Australia and find a local gem at St. Andrews Beach.
It’s time for proper sand belt golf at two of the world’s best courses, Kingston Heath and Victoria.
Soly charters a plane (with mixed results) to take the crew across the Bass Strait to Tasmania to check out Barnbougle Dunes.
After starting the day at Barnbougle Farms, Dan takes the lead into Lost Farm, which the group quite literally can’t get enough of.
With its greens running north of 15 on the stimpmeter, Metropolitan Golf Club was a test of mental fortitude. And most of us failed.
Royal Melbourne is the crown jewel of the Sand Belt and it was clear that the group had saved the best for last. While most of the gang was playing RM’s East Course with hickories, Neil got an Aussie haircut to remember.
While the rest of the group flew back the U.S., Soly hopped a flight to New Zealand to check out two of the most visually striking courses on the planet: Kauri Cliffs and Cape Kidnappers.
No cute title on this one. In its few short years of existence, Tara Iti has skyrocketed up Top 100 lists. Soly went to check it out, and walked away from it calling it his favorite of any course he’d ever played.
