Barnbougle Dunes Golf Club (The Dunes)


Barnbougle Dunes Golf Links is the creation of a small group of dreaming golfers who saw the potential to build the most amazing golf course on the small island of Tasmania a short jump from the mainland of Australia.

The golf course meanders through towering dunes and along the beach, where the roar of the ocean and a salty breeze embraces golfers, plotting their way around one of the world’s most natural golf courses.

It has now rocketed into the World Top 100 rankings with a very impressive debut at number 49. In the recently released Australian ratings the course has amazingly, but not surprisingly, been rated inside the top 10 courses.

Barnbougle Dunes is one of those escape from it all kind of places. The onsite accommodation is comfortable and the restaurant and bar within the clubhouse first class with very reasonable prices to boot. All in all it is a great place to visit and play golf on a course that looks as though it has been there for over 100 years!

The golf course itself combines a series of subtle, short in length par 4 holes with some testing par 3 holes and only 3 par 5’s on a course where the wind is an ever present factor. One of the great features of the course in the variability in playing conditions depending on the time of day you are playing the course. The mornings tend to offer windless playing experiences with often crisp cloudless days whereas in the afternoon the wind tends to pick up and provides challenges on many of the closing holes. All in all Barnbougle is a great thinking person’s golf course.

Barnbougle Dunes Golf Links is just outside the coastal village of Bridgeport, 1 hour north of Launceston in the island state of Tasmania.

Barnbougle Dunes Golf Club (Lost Farm)


Barnbougle Lost Farm is a 20-hole Links Golf course on Tasmania’s north east coast. Designed and constructed by world renowned U.S golf course design company Coore & Crenshaw, the Lost Farm is situated on Barnbougle Farm adjacent to the Barnbougle Dunes Course which opened in December 2004.

With a reputation for minimalistic course design and a philosophy that traditional, strategic golf is the most rewarding, head architect Bill Coore created the Lost Farm with the intention to complement the canvas provided by Mother Nature.

Lost Farm features 20 holes all of which are playable during any given round, whilst the layout of holes at Lost Farm also offer a more diverse routing compared to Barnbougle Dunes, with fairways that roll both along the coast and inland.

Boasting spectacular holes that wind along the coast, adjacent to the Forester River and inland towards the Tasmanian hinterland, Barnbougle Lost Farm is a breathtakingly beautiful golf course that is dramatically different and yet simultaneously complements both the surrounding landscape and Barnbougle Dunes.

Cape Wickham Golf Club (King Island)


Designed by renowned US golf architect Mike DeVries, Cape Wickham sits on a magnificent piece of natural coastal land at the far north western tip of King Island, in the windswept waters of Bass Strait. Cape Wickham has already captured the attention of international golf writers and will no doubt enter the Australian golf rankings in an enviable position. A world top 30 course in the world.

The golf course meanders through towering dunes and along the beach, where the roar of the ocean and a salty breeze embraces golfers, plotting their way around one of the world’s most natural golf courses. One of the great features of the course is the variability in playing conditions depending on the time of day you are playing the course. The mornings tend to offer windless playing experiences with often crisp cloudless days whereas in the afternoon the wind tends to pick up and provides challenges on many of the closing holes. All in all Cape Wickham is a great thinking person’s golf course.

Ocean Dunes Golf Club (King Island)


Ocean Dunes incorporates a challenging 18 hole layout amidst rolling dunes and featuring unsurpassed views along two kilometres of majestic coastline, land made for golf and reminiscent of the links of Scotland and Ireland. Two spectacular par 3’s cross the surging ocean with 360 degree ocean views on nearly every hole and exciting, risk and reward short par 4’s abound with the inland variety of holes afforded by the coastal creek which flows through the course.
