Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 160
I T IS true most golfers will travel just about anywhere in search of a new golfing challenge. And if the golf on offer also comes with affordable luxury accoutrements, the temptation is strong to jump on a plane and beat a path to the 1st tee. A growing number of Australian golfers are discovering the delights of a genuine “Bula!” welcome en route to playing one of the most outstanding courses in the South Pacific – Fiji’s premier layout, Natadola Bay. Located on Fiji’s Coral Coast, about 50 minutes’ drive south of Nadi International Airport on the main island of Viti Levu, Natadola Bay is a visually spectacular layout that combines 14 holes covering undulating land that afford ocean views, while four inland holes are irresistibly breathtaking. The par-72 layout officially opened for play in June 2009 by hosting the Fijian Open, which was won in convincing style by Victorian rookie pro Matt Griffin. His winning 72-hole score of 1-over – 11 strokes clear of his nearest rival – was testament to his ability and the difficulty of the course, especially from the back markers. “The course is magnificent. There is no doubt that major international championships can be played here,” Griffin said in accepting the trophy. Prophetic words from the Victorian, who will be in the field for the $1 million Fiji International to be played from October 15 to 18 with PGA Tour star Matt Kuchar headlining the field.
