Important Experience Information

What airports should I plan to fly in and out of?

You’ll want to schedule your flight to arrive and depart from Melbourne Airport (MEL).

Your first stop on this Experience is the Crown Towers, Melbourne, which is about 30 minutes from the Melbourne Airport.

Please contact the Concierge Team if we can be of assistance with arranging alternative airport transportation or assist with booking flights.

What will the weather be like during our stay?

A typical day in Australia in March will bring sunshine. The average temperature in Australia in March typically ranges between the mid 60s – upper 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

What currencies are used in Australia?

The currency utilized in Australia is the Australian Dollar (AUD). The Australian Dollar is currently trading at 0.67 USD to 1.00 AUD.

Will I be able to get cash and use credit cards while in Australia?

You will find that most major credit cards and debits cards are nearly universally accepted in Australia. The same is true of Travelers checks, which should be in Australian Dollars to avoid extra exchange rate charges. ATMs are ubiquitous throughout Australia so you will have easy access to cash. It should be noted that American Express is not as widely accepted in Australia as Visa and MasterCard.

How much cash should I bring?

We recommend bringing minimal US dollars, i.e. $75-100, with you and then accessing the local ATM’s upon arriving in Australia. The ATM’s will dispense the local currency and your bank will automatically calculate the exchange rate. Your own bank will typically provide the most favorable exchange rate available to you.

How many meals are included?

A full breakfast will be served every morning and Guests will also enjoy a Welcome Dinner with Cocktail reception on your arrival day. The GG Concierge Team can assist with making any reservations and recommendations for the group for additional meals not included in the Experience

What is the cancellation policy for this Experience?

All deposits and final payments are non-refundable. However, we highly recommend purchasing a travel insurance program through Travel Guard and we will be happy to provide a quote or you can browse below

What if I want to play additional and optional golf?

There are plenty of championship courses around the South of Australia! If any Guest wants to play additional golf, even at the spur of the moment, your GG Concierge can arrange optional golf for you. Optional golf can be arranged well in advance of your departure as well. Please consult the GG Concierge Team for golf options.

Can I play 36 holes a day if I want to?

Absolutely! Please let a member of our Concierge Team know and we will be happy to set up additional tee times for you.

Can I arrange to ship my golf clubs to Australia?

Yes! We partner with Ship Sticks, the leaders in golf club shipping, and can arrange for your golf clubs to be shipped directly to The Langham to await your arrival and home following your Experience. This is a great option to help ease the hassle of traveling and better yet, to prevent the terrible misfortune of missing or the delayed arrival of your golf clubs due to the airlines. 

Please contact the Garmany Golf Concierge Team at Experience@garmanygolf.com if we can be of any assistance to you.
