Golfers can’t afford to allow winter to mess around with their golf game – they work way too hard to get their handicaps down to where they currently are. Lord Howe Island Golf Club enjoys a mild climate all year round – perfect for a round or two, or three.

Somerset Apartments have released a winter special, making the chance to play on one of Australia’s most unique golf courses even more affordable.

Stay at Somerset Apartments for five (5) nights and only pay for four (4); stay for three (3) nights and pay only for two (2); or stay for seven (7) nights and receive two complimentary coral viewing and snorkelling tours, valued at $90. **250x250TICBanner

Somerset Apartments has Standard One Bedroom Apartments (1-2 guests) from $170 per night; Standard Two Bedroom Apartments (1-5 guests) from $330 p/n; Superior One Bedroom Apartments (1-2 guests) from $185 p/n; and Superior Three Bedroom Apartments (1-6 guests) from $360 p/n.

Somerset Apartments is well positioned among the main amenity that spectacular Lord Howe Island has to offer, close to Neds Beach and shops and restaurants.

Originating from a market garden in 1979, the Lord Howe Island Golf Course has been developed and expanded into one of the most picturesque and challenging courses in Australia. The well kept 9-hole, par 31 golf course is more challenging than the open fairways make it appear, especially as some of them run along the picturesque Pacific Ocean.

In 1982, The Lord Howe Island Group was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage property, in recognition of the global significance of the island’s beauty and biodiversity. The Island Group World Heritage Property includes the main island, offshore islets and Balls Pyramid, totalling about 1455 hectares of land. A further 145,000 hectares of marine environment are included in the World Heritage Area.

So when golfers aren’t navigating the fairways of the golf course, they can enjoy one of the many natural activities that Lord Howe Island has to offer, such as fishing trips, a round island cruise, snorkelling, bush walking, scuba diving and coral viewing.

Or, they can relax at Somerset Apartments and enjoy all the comforts that they have to offer.

** The Somerset Apartments Winter Special is valid for travel until September 13, 2013.
