• Dunes Links

Tom Doak & Mike Clayton (2004) 18 holes - 6,148 yds - Par 71

Tasmania #1 Course + Australia's Top Courses #3 + Golf Magazine World Top 100

Barnbougle Dunes winds through towering coastal dunes along one of Tasmania's pristine beaches presenting golfers with a true sea-side links experience. Course designers, Doak and Clayton, used the natural undulations of the spectacular stretch of coastline to produce18 wonderful golf holes to challenge and entertain golfers of all abilities.

Reminiscent of the original wild coastal links of Scotland and Ireland, Barnbougle Dunes Golf Links is a blend of Mother Nature's wilderness with the craftsmanship of man. According to Tom Doak, creator of the new "minimalist style" trend in modern golf architecture, "an actor is only as good as his role, an architect as good as his property". 

And here at Barnbougle Dunes, Doak was endowed with an exceptional piece of land. Stretching between, across and over towering sand dunes, Barnbougle is a total links experience that strike all the senses with the sun, the wind, the whiff of sea salt and the roar of the ocean accompanying players through their round. A blend of fescue and bent grasses, the fairways are wide, the greens roll with the natural undulations of the sand dunes, and with the 4th hole boasting the largest bunker in the southern hemisphere, the course is certainly designed to challenge.

• Lost Farm Links

Ben Crenshaw & Bill Coore (2011) 20 holes - 7,111 yds - Par 78

Tasmania #2 Course + Australia's Top Courses #5

Not content with one world-class course, Barnbougle was joined in 2011 by a second course, Lost Farm. Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, Lost Fam is located to the east of the original layout, across a small river, and occupy a spectacular oceanside location, straddling across a series of straddling sand dunes circling around a flat central paddock, a place where farmers would find missing cattle sheltering from the elements, hence the course name.

Lost Farm features exceptionally 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 Dune

When Coore first saw the land available for the layout, he was breathless with excitement but uncertain he would be able to build a layout worthy of such a setting ! Dunes here  are taller than at neighbouring Barnbougle and the valleys between them are also broader so that the site available for golf was larger and stretched further inland. These factors gave Coore the opportunity to arrange the golf so that holes run to all points of the compass, rather than predominantly east and west. Coore’s final routing is superbly balanced and mixes an opening stretch across the flatter central paddock, with a diverse group of holes weaving through the expansive dune valleys and four absolute showstoppers either right on the water or atop the beachside dunes.

Walking courses + Caddies available

Clubhouse: Proshop, changing rooms with showers, bar, restaurant & terrace

Tasmania

Tasmania

About the size of Ireland, Tasmania enjoys a temperate climate and an unspoiled environment. A great part of which is under the patronage of the UNESCO Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Tasmania is an Federall State Island located 240 km. (150 mi.) south of mainland Australia, from which it is separated by the Bass Strait. Tasmania is known as the Natural Island, for its large, unspoiled environment - One third of the island is under National Park status 

In the early 1800’s, Tasmania was populated by white European settlers sent to the island as a place of punishment resulting from England’s overcrowded prisons. Although Tasmania was originally discovered by Abel Tasman in 1642, the first settlers did not arrive until 1803, when a small group was sent from Sydney as a ploy to stop the French invading the island. Shortly after in 1804, a second convict group and military guards were sent to Sullivan’s Cove West of Derwent and were set with the pressing task of developing industry on the unforgiving island.

Other settlements followed, including the penal colonies of Port Arthur and Macquarie Harbour. As industry developed and the population grew, the small fishing village in West Derwent was named Hobart Town and later shortened to Hobart as it is know today.

Area: 68.401 sq.km. (26,410 sq.mi.) • 315 km. (189 mi.) long and 286 km. (175 mi.) large • Estimated population of 500.000
