The perfect golfing long-weekend: The Castaway Bounty Open

Friday, August 25, 2017

The Norfolk Island Golf Club was thrilled to welcome new sponsor Castaway Norfolk Island in 2016 and introduce the option of a weekend tournament open to visiting golfers and locals alike with the Castaway Bounty Open.  Especially suited to social golfers this tournament is also conveniently timed to coincide with the Islands annual Bounty Day celebrations in June.

Castaway Hotel is a perfect fit for this comp. The new Proprietors are Sarah and Tony Watts, a young local couple who refurbished the accommodation and bar, and introduced an la carte restaurant that has quickly gained an enviable reputation among locals and visitors alike.  You’ll feel welcome and relaxed from the moment you arrive and being centrally located to all cafes, shops and restaurants, accessing after-golf activities is easy.

Newer golfers who may be wondering what it’s like to take part in a Tournament away from home will be particularly interested in this event. On Norfolk Island you’ll find a genuinely welcoming, relaxed and exceptionally friendly Club. Of all the Tournaments on the Club’s annual calendar this one will appeal to those who like their golf and after-golf socialising to be relaxed and easy.

With the competition dates for 2018 to be the weekend of 9 - 10 June, it’s a great weekend getaway from Sydney (with flights on Fridays and Mondays).


However, there’s always the temptation to stay for the week and enjoy the 8 June Bounty Day celebrations marking the 1856 anniversary of the arrival of the Pitcairn Islanders on Norfolk Island – it’s a highlight of the year and the locals National Day. Travelling direct from Brisbane you’ll arrive and depart on Tuesday flights – so will be here to enjoy all the festivities.
