Fernando Alonso enjoys a round at Thomson Perrett’s Hamilton Island Golf Club

Just days after competing in the recent Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne, two-time world champion, Fernando Alonso enjoyed driving a different course, this time at the Thomson Perrett designed Hamilton Island Golf Club.
Alonso took a well deserved break at the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Hamilton Island, staying at luxurious resort qualia.  After reaching speeds in excess of 300kph in Melbourne, Alonso enjoyed taking the wheel of a near silent bright red electric buggy while he explored the Island hitting a maximum speed of 20kph – and loved every minute of it.�
Alonso’s stay saw him playing a round or two of golf at the Hamilton Island Golf Club, relaxing at Spa qualia and spending time with the Australian “locals” at the Hamilton Island Wildlife Park. He also enjoyed a number of dinners at the elegant Long Pavilion restaurant at qualia.
“The peace and quiet of Hamilton Island was the perfect way for me to wind down before moving on to the next round of intense competition on the international circuit,” said Alonso.
