Walkabout Golf & Country Club
Ahh! Walkabout, the golf course we have all been waiting for. The Golf Gods of Australia and America have laid their hands on an ordinary piece of land and produced a Miracle in Florida’s Space Coast.This 18-hole championship Golf Course, designed by renowned third generation golf course Architects Perry Dye and LPGA Champ Jan Stephenson, will satisfy a golfer's palate of any magnitude. Rich, lush, rolling fairways weave throughout undulating landscape, surrounded by serene lakes, native vegetation and wildlife. The course even features a bonus 19th green par 3 shaped like the continent of Australia.
badge readers choiceDye and Stephenson teamed up to build Walkabout amidst the pine-covered wetlands of Mims. TOUR PRO Chris DiMarco fired a course record 64 soon after its 2003 opening, and you'll appreciate his feat after just a few holes. This Walkabout is no walk in the park. Eight holes on the front nine feature menacing water hazards, so do the final five on the back. This layout could loan at least a dozen signature holes to its neighbors and have plenty to spare. Holes #4, #6, and #18 rank among the Space Coast's most Spectacular.
Have a taste for danger? Step to Walkabout's 7,146- yard Black tees. Yeah, didn't think so. In keeping with the Dye family ethos, the fairways are fairly generous. It's the greens that'll get you. Undulating and rattler quick, they're some of Florida's best according to Mr. DiMarco.
First-timers and regulars alike gush over Walkabout, which earns a 4.1-star rating on GolfNow. There's always been genuine talent beneath the Dye famous name and Stephenson's head-turning image. In Walkabout Golf Club, they've given us a truly rear creature--a golf course with style and substance.
"Walkabout" Golf Club gets it's name from an Australian term referring to the belief that Australian Aborigines "Go Walkabout" at the age of thirteen in the wilderness for six months as a rite of passage. They then trace the path of the ceremonial ancestors of their tribe, following the exact route that those ancestors took, and imitating in a fashion, their heroic deeds.
We are proud to give our customers the opportunity to "Walkabout" our Florida Golf Masterpiece. We look forward to seeing you soon....G'day!
