We’ve all heard a few scary buck’s night stories. Many of them involving a groom being hand-cuffed naked to traffic lights or waking up with a tattoo that he would never in his right mind have agreed to. But buck’s nights don’t have to be like this, and many grooms are choosing a more quiet affair like a day of golf, a weekend of fishing or a private party at home.
If you like the sound of a boys weekend away I suggest putting Bonville Golf Resort at the top of your list. Situated in Coffs Harbour, halfway between Sydney and Brisbane, Bonville is a man’s paradise.
Book yourself and the boys into one of 30 modern rooms situated alongside the 1st fairway, unpack your suitcase and put on your collared polo pronto! … you’ve got 18 holes of supreme golfing fun ahead of you.
Bonville is no ordinary golf course. The designer, Terry Watson, was asked to create something similar to the home of the US Masters, Augusta National in Georgia. And that he did. Every hole is created so each group of golfers thinks they are the only players on the course.
The multi-award winning course is buggy only and you’ll enjoy cruising around the fairways and greens amongst the flooded gum trees, miniature fruit orchid and a meandering stream. Along the way the refreshment cart will look after your every need. If you chose to play only 9 holes, it will give you a chance to enjoy a game of tennis on one of the three all weather courts or have a swim in the 30 metre rock lap pool.
After your game re-energize with a delicious BBQ on the terrace at Flooded Gum Restaurant overlooking the 18th fairway, before heading into town for the night. Bonville Golf Resort will happily transport you and your mates to the local pubs and pick you up again, to ensure you’re safely tucked into bed and ready for another day of golf in the morning.
If, on the other hand, you want to mix things up a bit, you can spend your 2nd day surfing, deep sea fishing, white water rafting or even playing skirmish (or extreme skirmish through Precision Helicopters). The Bonville team will help you plan your perfect boys’ weekend.
Bonville Golf Resort offers a number of packages including ”The Overnighter” which includes accommodation, breakfast and 18 holes; the ”Double Up” is two nights’ accommodation, two breakfasts and two rounds of golf and the ”Triple Treat” is three of everything. It’s no wonder Bonville has won so many awards, it’s a beautiful course and resort (which has actually made me want to take up golf). Bonville Golf Resort is perfect for a boys buck’s weekend getaway.
