Weekly Reader Poll

Weekly Reader Poll Results: Australia's #1 golf state/territory?

For this second installment of the iSeekGolf Weekly Reader Poll, we asked our readers to vote for Australia's #1 golfing state and they did so in convincing fashion.

Victoria was the runaway winner with 68 per cent of the vote - no surprise given the plethora of globally renowned sandbelt courses residing within a few kilometres of each other in Melbourne's south-east and the host of public access gems on the state's Mornington Peninsula.

New South Wales took the next largest slice of the vote with 14 per cent.

But perhaps an overwhelming surprise from the poll was Western Australia returning zero votes despite its impressive array of courses in Perth alone.

The iSeekGolf forum users provided some interesting analysis of the question and, this week, we're sharing the comments of No Rhyme Nor Reason, who said:

"For the most courses per square kilometre that you can access with reasonably close and priced accommodation.                                Victoria.

For courses that are playable 90% of the year, of above average quality and are mixed in budget value and accommodation.                Queensland

For courses that are varietal in design but are hopelessly out of geographic ability to find reasonably priced accommodation.                 NSW

For sheer lack of courses and nearby accommodation                                                                               .                                               ACT

For courses I have never played, but hope to rectify the situation.                                                                                                              WA - SA - NT - TAS

Every State has something to offer... Just depends on what you are looking for."

Well done No Rhyme Nor Reason for earning recognition without even revealing which state you voted for!
