    Experience the world's best golf courses with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.

    On our exclusive Golf & Cruise voyages, we have reserved the best golf courses for you in advance and put together attractive basic packages.

    Basic package: Four courses
    € 2,290 per person

    Your route heads north along the east coast of Australia. The diversity of the landscapes here is matched by the variety in the designs of the golf courses selected for this tour. Golfing in Australia always means a very special experience. Get to know the continent from a unique perspective through the golf designs that are heavily influenced by the natural surroundings.

    Wed 08.02.2023 Sydney, Australia - Stonecutters Ridge Golf Club
    The long, very straight course layout bears the signature of golf champion Greg Norman. "The Shark" designed his first 18 fairways here in 2012 in the middle of the Olympic city of Sydney. He harmoniously integrated the former bushland into his design, creating fairways that perfect the geological features with impressive bunkers and challenging greens. The result is a mixture of a city-and-parkland golf course.

    Fri 10.02.2023 Brisbane, Australia - Brisbane Golf Club
    The varied parkland course can look back on a 125-year history, making it one of the oldest golf courses on the continent. The 18-hole course features sufficiently wide fairways on a total of 6,105 m (20,030 ft) from the back tee box. The level fairways on the round hold 75 well-placed bunkers and numerous water features. – Tip: The 18th hole with its 316 m (1,037 ft) should be approached with a little restraint, otherwise the ball will land in the clubhouse before its players!

    Wed 15.02.2023 Cairns, Australia - Palmer Sea Reef Golf Club
    The club describes its course as the world's only tropical links style golf course. The flora and fauna, paired with extremely wide but also some highly modulated fairways, make the Palmer Sea Reef adventure unique. However, insiders warn against fishing lost balls out of the waterways, as there are numerous aggressive saltwater crocodiles watching the golfers pass by from their hiding places.

    Sun 19.02.2023 Darwin, Australia - Palmerston Golf & Country Club
    The contrasting 18-hole layout, comes up with idiosyncratic course designations! The bus stop, footprint, devil's elbow or even the needle, to name just a few. Whereas the first nine, with partly very long fairways and alone on six of nine holes are guarded with water areas, which then end on quite challenging greens. The second nine want to be mastered on very accurately played fairways guarded by trees.

    GENERAL INFORMATION

    • In order to guarantee a comfortable flow of play for all golfers, we have determined a basic speed, which is sufficient for a playing time of 4.5 to 5 hours on foot (covering 18 holes with a trolley).
    • Due to tournaments, renovations, etc. at the various golf clubs, our Golf & Cruise programme is subject to change at short notice.
    • Golf & Cruise voyages allow all players with a handicap of 36 or less to play on courses all over the world. 
    • Additional courses can only be booked in conjunction with the basic package.
    • The reservation of e-carts cannot always be guaranteed due to local availability and weather conditions. You may, therefore, have to play and walk just with trolleys - possibly even on hilly courses. Please consider this when planning/booking your Golf & Cruise package. 
    • Halfway refreshments are always ordered via the respective golf club; we have no influence on the quality of the snacks. We kindly ask for your understanding.
    • When booking a Golf & Cruise package and flights through Hapag-Lloyd, we will register your golf equipment directly with the airlines – when possible and required. The current baggage regulations of the relevant airline apply. In your travel documents, which you will receive about four weeks prior to departure, you will find relevant information about this. Excess baggage fees for golf equipment are normally to be paid at check-in.
    • Minimum number of participants for basic packages: 12 persons.
    • Minimum number of participants for additional courses: 10 persons.
    • If the minimum number of participants is not reached, cancellation will occur no later than eight weeks prior to cruise departure.
    • Rental clubs for right-handed and left-handed players are available on board, subject to a surcharge.
