If I had the opportunity, I'd take my mate Tom who hasn't played golf since losing his older brother to Retinoblastoma. His brother was his playing partner and has been wanting to get back into golf since his passing 3 years ago. I think this would be exactly what he needs to get back on his feet and swinging those clubs as these were the courses his brother always wanted to play.

If I was lucky enough to win, I’d love to take my hubby on this once in a lifetime experience. I took up golf a couple of years ago; which started with lessons at my local club “ Belvoir Park Golf Club”. Unfortunately I was unable to continue due to ill health. But, they had organized to have the lessons for the ladies again this year. So, I started again, I have now joined the club and haven’t look back. I have played with my hubby and no, we’re still married after 47 years. Lol. My dream is to have the kind of holiday where you take the golf clubs with you. It hasn’t happened yet but it will happen. Barnbougle Tassie & King Island golf would be the ultimate golf dream for both of us. Although part of my dream has come true. Wanting to play golf, was what kept me focused when I was ill and to be able to play with my hubby. So I guess I’m a winner already.

Being new to the game in the past 12 months having progressed through Swing Fit I have been enjoying the golf bug this month with my husband who has been involved with golf for 37 years. This past winter we had our first holiday with golf clubs on board. Having seen Lost Farm on the Golf Show last night, I cant wait to play northern Tasmania and King Island.

I would love to take my dad on a golfing holiday. He has just turned 70 and loves to play golf. It would be a great way to celebrate his 70th and me becoming a father.

I would love the opportunity to take my husband of 38 years on a fabulous golfing trip. For many years he stopped playing as he was heavily involved with our four children and their sporting activities. So this would be a lovely way to show him how grateful we are that he was such a loving and involved father and husband.

My sister-in-law and I would be over the moon at the prospect of playing such acclaimed courses. She has been so committed to serving on the Ladies committee of our local club and is about to pass on the baton - what a great way to celebrate.

I would like the opportunity to take my mate of 35 years on this trip . He has been going through some tough times and this I'm sure would ease the stress that he's going through . Thank you .

A good friend of 12 years has encouraged me to return to golf. I'm no great player but I just love it. My mate used to play off +1 about 15 years ago and still smashes a good ball. I'd really love to surprise him with this trip away as a kind of thank you for getting me back into it. I've heard many great reports about Barnbougle and would like to see first hand what it has to offer. Gotta be in it to win it I guess.

Thank you Golf Australia for this opportunity! If given the chance I would for sure take my Dad as for long as I can remember he has been working his backside off for me and brother and this would be the perfect way to give back to him! My Dad and I have shared a common passion for golf for years and years and this trip would not only show to him how much I appreciate him but also this trip would improve both of our games!

This tour sounds phenomenal! I've recently started to share the golf bug with my new partner. She has some learning to go and it's tough in our windy city to learn (Warrnambool). I would love to take my childhood mate Samuel, we spent our summers playing golf almost every day, lots of times 36 holes in a day! Since we both moved to different places for work it's hard to get out to enjoy what this great game has to offer. I'll leave this comment with the wisdom of Hank Aaron "It took me seventeen years to get three thousand hits in baseball. I did it in one afternoon on the golf course." - Hank Aaron

Thank you for the opportunity to enter this competition. On a trip to Tasmania in 2015 I had booked into Barnbougle Lost Farm for a round of golf. This was my ultimate golfing bucket list. The storms were so incredible that day that we were not permitted to venture onto the course so I never got to play on Barnbougle. The bad weather continued and I became terribly sea-sick on the Spirit of Tasmania as we headed back to the mainland. I would love the opportunity to take my 35 year old son to play on these world class courses. He has recently become the father of two very small children and rarely has the time to play golf. A trip like this for mother and son would be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Flying with Air Adventure Golf Tours would hopefully ensure I didn't get sea sick crossing the notorious Bass Strait.

My wife Kate. Since retiring, she has contracted an insidious strain of golfbug. Symptoms include cravings for practice rounds and competitions at her local golf club; compulsive obsessive traits involving range sessions and the putting greens; and disrupted sleep as she dreams of the perfect tee shot. What can be done? The only solution seems to be more golf on some of the country's best courses.

I am enjoying the golf bug with my mate Rex who earlier this year suffered a stroke and was lucky to only have lost partial vision in his right eye as a on going problem. So I now play rounds with him as much as possible as we live one and half hours from each other.

Lady I worked for gave me a trip to Barnbugle few years ago and for various reasons I was unable to take at the time , would love to take my husband now we have retired.

I want to give the golf bug to my 4 kids. I will do this by taking them up each week to play a few holes. They all have cut down clubs ... so away we go.

We’re blessed with three girls under 2.5 years old (eekkkk!!), including a set of twin girls aged 11 months. My selfless husband's twice weekly round of golf has been pushed out to monthly due to the girls but he never once complains! For his 30th last year we had planned the ultimate golfing holiday through Asia but due to the Zika virus (I was 4 months pregnant) we couldn’t go to this region and lost all our holiday money. This prize would be gratefully appreciated by my husband and will hopefully help him work back towards his handicap of 7.

My wife Elizabeth. With our busy lifestyle, two adorable young kiddies life seldom allows us the time and freedom to enjoy the outdoors and golf. Not only do we love our golf, it allows us undivided attention between us and an opportunity to have great conversation with kids interrupting. This would be a wonderful prize and getaway for myself and the love of my life.

My Nephew introduced me to Golf in 1997 whilst I was visiting him in Canberra from England. Then we lost touch. I moved to Sydney in 2001 and in 2016 he had searched and found me again and we met up, which was wonderful. We were both so happy to be in touch again. He is now 30 with a wife and 3 young children. He has no time for golf as he now spends his spare time with his family he is a dedicated father. I am sure he would love to spend some time with me in Melbourne Playing golf to make up for the years we lost each other and enables me to give him a BIG thank you. Thank you to Air Adventure Golf Tours, what a wonderful idea. Fingers crossed this will be a great surprise for him.

Thank you for this opportunity to give my best friend a chance to get the taste of the sport he once loved. I once was a member of Launceston Golf Club where I met my best friend who played pennants for the club. We go trout fishing every year up the lakes and always have a game at Bothwell Golf course where I see that competitive will to win. I live in Western Australia now and can't get to see my mate as often as I would like. My mate was found by the Police at the fishing shack up the central highlands with depression and spent the next month in a padded sell. His depression is under control but when he turned 50years he got bowl cancer and had to go under chemotherapy and has come out negative after two years. We used to play golf after work and I'll never forget he had a 10ft down hill putt to win $10:00 dollars on the last hole and got it. He is a fighter. He has a couple of years until he reaches 55years old and I would love to see him go on the senior tour, he would give it a good shakeup. I personally can second at Mowbray in the Tasmanian senior open in 2016 and have been fighting ill health during and after. My golfing days are limited due to my health and this opportunity would allow me to get my best mate the once loved sport of golf back back into his life plus the change to get my $10:00 back.

My son in law can't believe a 70 year old lady can beat him. I would love the chance to do it at these great courses and reinforce golf is a game for all ages.

My partner has had the worst run of extremely bad golf and currently giving it a break. Sharing with her, this extroadinary opportunity to play some of the best courses in Australia, great scenery, drinks and food would be a great incentive to bring her positively back to the game we both love.

I'd look to go with our golfing 4 - not just the 2 prize winners. Thought about getting creative with the answer but really, for us, it's all about going away for a golf weekend each year. And this trip is definitely on our bucket list - so none of us could just do it as a 2! Great company, great courses and great fun! That's it in a nutshell!!

I'd like to take my best mate as it will give us the opportunity to spread the ashes of both our deceased fathers who loved their golf. I've been waiting for an idea and location to do this myself and to do it at any of these locations would be fitting and what better way to do with my bestie. Fingers crossed
