One-hundred thousand visitors means a lot of people looking for overnight accommodations. The Australian Walkabout Inn still has rooms available for the week. We are less than 20 minutes from shuttle parking that will take you to the Open. As a side note, Bob is volunteering at the Open, so he'll have an interesting perspective to share with guests.
While you're at the Open, make sure you take some time to enjoy all of the plantings around the area. They're done by my friend, Laura Lapp of Perfect Pots Container Gardens.
We usually serve breakfast around 9am, but if you want to get an earlier start, just make arrangements with us beforehand. We're happy to accommodate schedules.
After a day walking the course and following all the favorites, you'll be able to come back to the Inn, relax with a hot tub soak or maybe a massage! We can then guide you to some out of the way places to have a nice dinner.
Make your reservations soon. Fore!
