Barnbougle Dunes Golf Links

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 will embrace golfers, plotting their way around one of the world's most natural golf courses.

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 Bridport, 1 hour north of Launceston in the island state of Tasmania.

Playing Tips

1
Par 5, Length 506m

A wide landing area for the tee shot is a forgiving introduction to your round. But the immediate risk/reward carry of the bunker on the second shot, and the various slopes feeding the ball away from the front half of the Opening green will alert you to the challenge ahead.

2
Par 4, Length 381m

An apparently simple and wide open hole comes to life when pondering the shot into a very deep and narrow green, with three layers. There is no forgiveness for a wayward approach into the prevailing wind.

3
Par 4, Length 339m

Look left to the fairway and you'll see a thin ribbon of green fairway, leading right to the blind green. The tee shot is best aimed at the left edge of the distant bunker, with a driver taking you down to the lower shelf of the fairway (not the best place to attack the common back, left pin). The safe play into the green is to play long and right.

4
Par 4, Length 271m

The site of Barnbougle farm's first homestead, a rare still day will present a chance to go for the green with your tee shot, and putt for an elusive eagle. However, the sensible play is to either lay up short of the enormous bunker and accept the blind pitch into the green, or drive up the left side and open up your view at the flag.

5
Par 3, Length 201m

While the coastal scenery & dunescape is distracting, the Turn hole demands a precise shot to the left hand side of the split level green, letting the contours feed the ball around to the pin.

6
Par 4, Length 381m

With a tail wind big hitters can take on the sand hill, or the safe play is down the left hand side fairway. However short your shot in may be, this subtle green with its awkward depth perception rewards only the most precise approaches.

7
Par 3, Length 112m

One of Australia's shortest golf holes, is also one of the nation's most challenging. A sweetly driven long iron into the wind, or a softly floating pitch shot when its still, don't miss it long or left, and you'll never be so glad to walk off with a three.

8
Par 4, Length 446m

You can take the high road or the low road, with more room to the right hand side, but a longer shot into the distant green. A hole where the par is irrelevant, and your own shot shot selection and execution is everything.

9
Par 4, Length 400m

A tee shot where driver rarely improves your position, a long iron up the left side will open your line into the green, or a 3wood up the right will reward the golfer with one of the best views at Barnbougle, looking beyond the green and up the never ending beach and distant dunes. The inviting clubhouse will recharge your batteries for the back 9.

10
Par 4, Length 409m

The left side bunkers on this wide open fairway attract the aggressive golfers, while the multi layered green ensures that golfers are happy with a steady par to start the back 9.

11
Par 5, Length 475m

When the wind is up, an eagle putt is available to those straight enough with their approach into this shorter par 5. However the common lay up to the left side of the green provides one of the most subtle short approach shots to the flag- to pitch, fly, bump'n'run or putt it to the hole.

12
Par 4, Length 254m

Carrying the gaping bunkers short of the green tempt many on a still day, but into the prevailing wind the safe line is to the wide fairway left of the green. On your approach shot in, don't let the Bass Strait vista distract you from your bump'n'run to tucked away pins.

13
Par 3, Length 188m

Shots into the right half of this mountainous green will feed balls to the lower left side, the long chip or putt will need to traverse humps and hollows. But don't fret, there is always a way to the hole.

14
Par 5, Length 508m

The variety of driving lines is determined by the tail wind, as is the ability to reach the green in two. For those laying up, you choose to carry over or lay up short of the neck of fairway between wetlands. Green side craters await the errant approach.

15
Par 4, Length 321m

The central bunker offers 4 lines off the tee; safely short, the safe left, tight right or beyond. The strategy you choose will be governed by the hole location- but regardless of the pin, don't miss this green left.

16
Par 3, Length 153m

The green feeds away and right from the tee, so as long as you miss the short left bunker, a two putt par awaits. When the wind is up however, you'll have to hit one out of the screws to get it near.

17
Par 4, Length 400m

The tranquility of the rivermouth disguises one of the course's most demanding tee shots. Thread the drive between fairway bunkers and run the ball up onto the diagonal green, protruding from the dunes.

18
Par 4, Length 403m

A tee shot aimed at the left verandah of the clubhouse will leave you with an open shot into the green. With its valley of sin short right, the sand hills back and left, and beach all down the right, you won't find many prettier settings in which to finish your round of golf.

Region: Tasmania (Launceston, Hobart, King Island)

Barnbougle Lost Farm

Lost Farm complements the natural landscape in which it is located. Featuring 20 holes, all of which are playable in any one round, the course layout tracks along the coast and inland amongst sand dunes. Strategic bunkering and undulating greens, combined with wide fairways make for a course which offers an exciting challenge for all golfers.

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.
