Barnbougle Dunes

Tasmania is home to a couple of hidden gems and two of the world's top links courses.

The Courses

 

Barnbougle Dunes – # 4 in 2014 Australian Golf Magazine’s Top 100 & # 34 2013 Golf Magazine's World Top 100

Barnbougle is a links golf course unlike anything ever seen in Australia. You play between, over, and across towering dunes, where breathtaking views and thrilling golf provides a dramatic setting that is equal to the best links courses in the world. The course is strong enough to test the best players but fair enough to be a joy for any player. Spectacular views and some of the greatest short holes in the world - it is an18 hole championship links golf course whose layout and design equals the great courses of Britain and Ireland.

Barnbougle Dunes is a course that requires strategy and plotting a suitable path according to your ability. It does not require brute strength, yet there are places to exert power to an advantage. The outward nine at Barnbougle plays through a series of saddles that both shelter and direct play lines. The back nine is more open but arguably more striking with multiple panoramas of the course, adjoining bay and the town of Bridport. The fairways are wider than those of more traditional courses. The true lines to the flags are from the corners of the fairways and the perfect position alters depending on the direction and strength of the wind, the position of the pin and your standard as a player.

Some of the shortest holes are the most interesting with both the 4th and 12th holes being less than 275 metres from the back tee. Complementing these holes are the par four 8th and the two par fives in the back nine which reward powerful strokes combined with measured control. The greens at Barnbougle run at speeds closely resembling the original greens of the great British links. The greens have been contoured in tune with the tumbling land around them. In places they tumble, while there are broad slopes on others & ridges through the playing lines of a few.

Lost Farm

Lost Farm - # 6 in 2014 Australian Golf Magazine’s Top 100 & # 72 2013 Golf Magazine's World Top 100

Barnbougle Lost Farm is a 20 hole Links Golf course on Tasmania's north east coast. Designed and constructed by world renowned US golf course design company Coore & Crenshaw, the Lost Farm course is situated on Barnbougle Farm adjacent to the Barnbougle Dunes Course.

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.
