Barnbougle, The Dunes
With it's spectacular vista's of Tasmania's North East Coast, Barnbougle Dunes is a links course unlike any other in Australia, and is a fantastic example of traditional links golf. Meandering along Tasmania's dramatic North East Coast, it's where breathtaking scenery and thrilling golf truly come together. The recipient of global accolades, Barnbougle Dunes was designed by U.S. Golf Visionary Tom Doak and Australian Mike Clayton to channel the traditional links courses of Scotland and Ireland. Golf at The Dunes is a game of strategy, where each shot requires tactical thought and a little creativity can be rewarding.
A blend of fescue and bent grasses, the course flourishes in the coastal environment. Fairways are wide, wider than most golfers will have experiences on traditional courses. The greens are lively; rolling with the natural undulation of the dunes and with the 4th hole boasting the largest bunker in the southern hemisphere, this course is designed to challenge. The greens at Barnbougle Dunes run at speeds closely resembling the original greens of the great British links. Contoured in tune with the tumbling land around them, the greens feature a combination of broad slopes and ridges through the playing lines.
Barnbougle, Lost Farm
Just a short pitching wedge across the river from The Dunes lies Barnbougle's second installment, Lost Farm. Designed and built by world renowned US golf course design company Coore & Crenshaw, Lost Farm has quickly captured the attention of international golfers of all abilities.
Despite their close proximity, Lost Farm is remarkably different to The Dunes. Lost Farm features 20 holes, all of which are playable in any one round, and the course layout tracks along the coast and inland amongst sand dunes that are significantly steeper than those featured at The Dunes. The strategic bunkering and undulating greens combined with wide fairways make for a course that offers an exciting challenge for golfers of all abilities.
Barnbougle has numerous lodging options including the 3.5 star Cottages At The Dunes, the 4 Bed Bunker Villas, the 2 Bedroom Ocean Villas, and the Luxury Golf Lodge at Lost Farm. Regardless of your group size and budget, Barnbougle has accommodation suitable to your needs.

Two spectacular signature par threes crossing the surgin ocean are sure to delight, but with so many 360 degree ocean views from nearly every hole, you will certainly never forget Ocean Dunes, King Island.
Ocean Dunes offers accommodation options at King Island Hotel in Currie, which is owned by Ocean Dunes.
Cape Wickham Links, King Island
Cape Wickham Links sits on 363 acres of coastal land and is unique and rare in Australian and World golf given that eight holes are adjacent to Bass Strait, another two holes have greens on the coastline, and a further three holes have tees beside the ocean. You can also enjoy views of Bass Strait from all 18 holes at Cape Wickham. The 18th hole is also a stand out as it bends around the beach at Victoria Cove, with the beach being in play should an errant ball end up there.
The land is gently undulating and interspersed with giant sand dunes and ridges. The layout at Cape Wickham is made up of three basic loops with holes one through five being on the Cape Farewell headland, holes six to thirteen in dune land to the south of Cape Farewell, and holes fourteen to eighteen in the Lighthouse/Victoria Cove Zone.
Cape Wickham Links has on site accommodation featuring 16 Deluxe rooms with balconies and superb north facing views over Victoria Cove Beach, Cape Wickham Lighthouse, or the golf course.
