Over the past few months, Inside Golf has been receiving nominations for the best 18 holes in Australia. We’ve asked you, our loyal readers, to nominate your picks for the best 1st hole, the best 2nd hole, etc. Our goal is to create a “Dream Course” that includes Australia’s very best 18 holes, in order.

The nominations came thick and fast, with some really amazing holes being nominated. In truth, the list is awe-inspiring.

THE FINALISTS

This month, we reveal the Top 72, including the top 3 for each hole (plus ties and a few Wildcards), as voted by the Australian golfing public.

PREVIEW THE COURSES HERE, THEN SCROLL DOWN TO VOTE:

In order to help you choose your favourite holes in Australia, we have assembled the following collection of links; these will take you to the “Course Tour” pages and “Featured Hole” pages on the websites of the nominated clubs and courses. (We have made every effort to link to the specific holes where possible. In some cases–where the club does not have a “Course Tour” section (or in some cases no website at all), we have simply linked to the page that we feel would offer the best available information.)
