The Limestone Coast boasts some of Australia’s premiere regional golf courses.

Mt Gambier’s Attamurra Golf club is undulating with many of the holes played from elevated tees. The fairways are lush and tree lined, the greens are large, challenging and very true. The course is extremely well bunkered with conditions excellent all year round. After a major reconstruction in 1977 the course has matured into a true test of golf. It is very picturesque with its blend of native and exotic trees and shrubs with an abundance of bird life and kangaroos. The club has won awards for garden beautification and is consistently listed in Australia's top one hundred courses.

Mt Gambier’s Blue Lake Golf Course is the home of the SA PGA and offers an attractive 18 hole lay out adjacent to the Blue Lake.

The Millicent Golf Club lies 12 kilometres from the South Australian township of Millicent, which is close to the southern tip of the border with Victoria. It has gained a reputation as one of the state's finest country courses since its opening in August 1961.
