King Island

King Island, perched in the middle of the Bass Strait between Victoria and Tasmania, is now touted to become the next 'mecca' for golfers from around the world. 

The Courses

Cape Wickham - #3 Golf Digest Australian Top 100 & #24 Golf Digest World Top 100 in 2016

In the middle of Bass Strait, on the northwestern tip of remote King Island, sits Australia’s tallest lighthouse and one of the world’s most spectacular golf sites. Cape Wickham Links was designed by Mike DeVries and Darius Oliver, and opened for public play on October 30, 2015. King Island itself is a beautiful place, and renowned on the Australian mainland for its delicious cheeses, beef and seafood. It also has a fascinating maritime history with a number of notorious shipwrecks during the early 19th century leading to the construction of the Cape Wickham lighthouse. Finished and operational in 1861, the lighthouse now stands sentinel over the closing stretch of holes at Cape Wickham. It’s visible from many parts of the layout as well, most memorably as an aim point for those standing on the 4th tee.

Beyond a magnificent lighthouse, what this golf course has in spades are glorious coastal views, incredible scenic variety and towering sand dunes and valleys. Standing on the first tee or the putting green or inside the clubhouse gives a glimpse of the beauty here, but doesn’t reveal everything. The final five holes stretch out to your north and beneath the lighthouse, while to your west is the Cape Farewell headland where the opening five holes are set. You look across the north facing Victoria Cove and beach, stare straight at the lighthouse and all around see holes that abut the Southern Ocean. What you don’t get any sense of is the flow or rhythm of the golf course, or the heart of the layout, which in many ways is the stretch from 6 through 13.  Cape Wickham is indeed the most beautiful and spectacular site for golf anywhere in the world. Hopefully golfers admire the holes and appreciate the design. At the very least they should enjoy the setting.

Ocean Dunes

A very special links golf project is unfolding on King Island overlooking the Great Southern Ocean - in the mould of Scotland’s great links.
