The 'Bell boys' sharpen up their skills around the green.

To celebrate Golf Month this October we’re giving away four ultimate golf bug adventures to Barnbougle and King Island thanks to Air Adventure Golf Tours.

There’s still one week left for you to tell us who you will share the golf bug with during Golf Month this October.

In the meantime, we’re excited to announce another four minor prize winners, each taking home a Titleist gift pack thanks to our friends at Drummond Golf.

And don’t forget, you can find heaps of fun Golf Month activities near you by entering your postcode here.

Check out our latest winners’ submissions:

Krishnan Anandeswaran, VIC

“I have organised for my entire team of 20 colleagues to go down to Albert Park Driving range next week. I have been sending them golf basics videos and plan on teaching them a thing or two while we are there… Hopefully some of them ‘get bitten!’”

Richard Bowen, NSW

“I will be sharing the golf bug with my beautiful 6-year-old daughter this October. She had so much fun at a local golf clinic during the school holidays and I am so thrilled to share the passion and enthusiasm with her. Pretty awesome feeling to be able to get outside and go for a hit with your little girl and I'm so pumped to pass on what I have learned over the years to her. To see her focus and love for the sport at such a young age is incredible and I love having something fun that connects us more. We definitely have another one in the family with the 'golf bug' just like her Dad.”

Tracey Stephens, QLD

“My friend Janine moved from London to Brisbane to be close to me but my weekends are full of golf so we don't catch up as much as we'd like. I'm introducing her to golf so we can spend more time together, and she won't leave to go live near a non-golfing friend!”

Candice Bell, NSW

“I'll be sharing the golf bug with my dad, my brother and my 10-year-old son! While my dad, brother and I get to play each week at our local club, we want my son to get more out of a golfing experience! With daylight savings upon us, our goal is to take him out in the afternoons after work to play a few holes and get the golf bug in his system! Best part of it all is golf is one of very few sports where 3 generations of family can actually compete with each other fairly (through handicap) and have an absolute ball at the same time! Here's to sharing the golf bug in October!”

Note: Weekly winners will still be eligible for the overall prize.

I have just organised a 4 person ambrose summer comp in which each team must introduce a new golfer to the sport. So far the first 10 teams nominated have 29 brand new golfers who will playing at least 7 games between now and Christmas, Even 1 permanent golfer out of that lot will be satisfying.

I’d share it with my best mate Dylan, as juniors we spent just about every day at the golf course from practicing to playing, to looking for golf balls... which I’m sure we would do plenty of if we got the chance to play any of these 2 beautiful courses. We battled against each other for junior club championships and events to now both fighting it out for the A Grade club championship and that number 1 spot on the pennant team. It’s been a tough year for both of us with Dylan’s father suffering a severe head Injury and myself saying goodbye to both of my grandad’s and this would be a much needed break for us both.

I would love to share this prize with my sister Sue who lives in Tasmania. I only see her a couple of times a year and it would be a perfect girls getaway combing golf, good food and maybe a wine.

I would love to share my golf bug with my youngest daughter who is 16. She has no sporting interest, loves stirring me every word I say and does not believe I have any talent, so a captive golf tour where she can see I do and maybe join me would be excellent, in possibility anyway.

We left it late to learn golf, but we have just bought our 5 year old Grandaughter a learner club and are introducing her to a game which hopefully she will enjoy her entire life!

I would like to share the golf bug with my 32-year-old stepson. He is a very keen golfer on 11, but I would love to show him that a 75-year-old can still give him a great game on these wonderful world-class courses.

I would love to share the Golf Bug with my golfing fanatic child Chase. He is 9 and watches the Golf Show every week with me. We play golf together most weekends, coordinate matching golf outfits and love finding new courses to add to the list! Barnbougle and King Island would be a dream come true. Please help us cross these courses off the list and make my little golf champ's dream come true.

Golf has made so many great friends I'm eternally grateful. Would love to share with 3 of my friends who are available one of them definitely Marlene Hayward. Golf is such a fantastic sport for both young and old. The opportunity to play these places would be excellent.

No such thing as a golf bug, providing I am playing at least 3 times a week I can control my anxiety. My partner and I are one of 5 couples who plan holidays together to play golf including Bali, Fiji, Port Lincoln, Swan Hill, Waikerie etc etc. I would love to take them to Barnbougle

Isaac shared the golf bug with his best mate Xavier from preschool and his dad...Xavier struggled a bit at the start with but with Isaac's help, encouragement and support he was hitting every shot. At the end Xavier and his dad were asking about mygolf and membership at our local course.

I will be sharing my golf bug with my son and my 7 year old grandson Ryder Chadwick) who lives on the Gold Coast. As a proud member of the fabulous Paradise Palms Golf Course - Cairns both really loved coming out with me when they visited back in June. Even brought some cut down clubs for Ryder and he just loved hitting some balls and sharing his joy with both his dad and his Pa. It was such a special time for us together.
