Golf on the menu for Warne and Hurley

Shane Warne and Liz Hurley (AGENCY)


Shane Warne and Liz Hurley have headed to an exclusive Melbourne golf club owned by former Crown Casino boss Lloyd Williams.

After tweeting that he was looking for suggestions on where to take Hurley for a "sexy" lunch, Warne appeared to have his own ideas and drove to the Capital Golf Club in Heatherton, a short car journey from his Brighton mansion.

The Peter Thomson-designed course in Melbourne's southeast is a luxurious destination that has hosted celebrities including Tiger Woods, who played practice rounds there ahead of the Australian Masters the past two years.

The highly secure club features a sumptuous clubhouse with views of the meticulous grounds and curious birdlife, according to the club's website.

"Peacocks peer in through the clubhouse windows and strut the grounds," the website says.

As well as playing a round of golf, Hurley, fresh from the UK, will be able to enjoy Australian fauna including emus and wallabies in the club's wildlife sanctuary.

The couple will be relaxing in what the website describes as a "convivial, comfortable and relaxed" atmosphere at the clubhouse, which features "sun-drenched flagstone patios" and "vine-shaded pergolas".

There's an "impressive" dining room, "cosy" library and a steam room and sauna in the locker rooms.

Hurley and Warne earlier left their Brighton love bunker where they were bedded down after close to 40 hours.

The pair left Warne's Melbourne bayside mansion just after 12.30pm (AEDT) in a black Mercedes with tinted windows, with a convoy of media cars in hot pursuit and helicopters overhead.

Warne's mother Brigitte arrived at the house shortly after the lovers left.

Paparazzi have been camped outside Warne's home since Hurley was met by a pack of photographers when she flew into Melbourne Airport on Tuesday night.

On Thursday morning Warne tweeted: "Where is the sexiest place to take Elizabeth for lunch? Suggestions please? Chapel St? Crown? And no - not for spaghetti on toast!!!".

He was met with a bevy of responses suggesting inner Melbourne eateries and destinations such as the Dandenong Ranges, and Yarra Valley wineries.
