Certainly one of the great summer activities for any visitor to Thredbo is to play one of Australia’s most uniquely beautiful and challenging 9 hole golf courses. From the 375 metre 1st hole, past the Platypus Pond, through the Snake Pit, a visit to Wally’sPlace, The Wedge, over the Fountain and down the magnificent 280 metre 9th “Docs Ponds”.
Thredbo Alpine Golf course is something to remember.
Play a round of golf on Australia’s highest course. The nine hole, AGU rated course is bordered by the Thredbo river and has unique and challenging features such as the snake pit and Wally Wombat’s House. Equipment hire and green fees can be paid at Thredbo Sports.
