The Hunter Val­ley in New South Wales is renowned for its winer­ies, lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion and high-qual­ity golf cour­ses.

The Vin­tage Golf Club, de­signed by Greg Nor­man and Bob Har­ri­son and ranked No.40 in Aus­tralia’s Top-100 Cour­ses for 2018, is con­sid­ered by many to be the lead­ing lay­out in the Pokol­bin wine re­gion and com­bines with Chateau Elan Hunter Val­ley to cre­ate an idyl­lic re­sort for golfers and non-golfers alike.

Lo­cated two hours north of Syd­ney and one hour west of New­cas­tle, Chateau Elan is an award-win­ning lux­ury ho­tel of­fer­ing bou­tique ac­com­mo­da­tion, ex­ten­sive spa treat­ments, lo­cal tours (in­clud­ing winer­ies, horse­back rid­ing and bal­loon and he­li­copter flights) and world-class golf right on its doorstep.

There is a col­lec­tion of pack­ages avail­able – which can be found on the web­site – but there are two in par­tic­u­lar that will ap­peal most to those who want to spend time on the fair­ways.

The stay and play pack­age costs $321 and in­cludes: One night’s ac­com­mo­da­tion at Chateau Elan and two rounds of golf in a shared cart. While the “You and I” pack­age starts at $375 and fea­tures: One night’s ac­com­mo­da­tion at Chateau Elan, one round of golf and one 50-minute Swedish mas­sage.
