The perfect day out for golf lovers

There is nothing greater than scoring an eagle on hole 18 (except for maybe an albatross). If you live and breathe golf, why not take a day out this week to head down to the local golf course to hit a few balls around the fairway. Golf is a game of technique and skill and many find it extremely relaxing; if you fall into this category, check out these Rockhampton golf courses for a bit of fun. Don’t forget to stop into a local café for breakfast, or hit up the pub after you’ve spent the day on the course to make a day of it.

To start off your golf day, why not grab some good food and a coffee. The Good Company Café is a fully licensed café open for breakfast and lunch every day of the week. Whether you’re taking a ‘mental health day’ in the middle of the week or spending your weekend hitting a ball around, the Good Company Café will be there to serve you up incredible food and beverages before or after your game. Pop in here for eggs benedict or a breakfast crepe alongside a strong coffee to start your morning off and clear your head. If you were up for an early game, why not visit after you’ve been to the golf course and try something from their lunch menu or open grill; with options such as the pan seared sweet chilli calamari, you’ll be glad you stopped in here on the way home to refuel. Located just a ten minute drive from the Rockhampton Golf Club, this is the perfect pre or post-golf meal.
