In recent years the Club has been the venue for many major Championship events, including the Tasmanian Open (1968, 1976, 1980, 1986, 1991, 2003), Australian Amateur (1968, 1974, 1987, 1993, 2000 and 2006), Australian Women's Amateur (1968, 1978, 1990, 1997) and the Qantas Australian Open in 1971 won by the legendary Jack Nicklaus.

Course Information

Par: 72
ACR: 72
Length (m): 6115
Architect: Vern Morcom
Design Year: 1956

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 402m

An extremely demanding opening hole requiring length and accuracy off the tee, with bunkers and undulating fairway ready to punish any wayward drives. The second shot will require a long to mid iron to a small elevated green. Players missing the green left or right will be left with a difficult chip shot. Par on this hole is an achievement.

2
Par 4, Length 331m

A short hole that doglegs left with all the trouble being with the tee shot. There is no advantage for the long hitters to draw the ball round the corner as often a full 9-iron or wedge will make it easier to stop the ball on the small, well bunkered green.

3
Par 4, Length 409m

One of the more difficult holes on the course. A slight draw from the tee will set the player up with a long to mid iron to the green. The second shot will require good judgement as this shot is very deceptive. The green, which slopes from the back to the front, rewards the attacking shot.

4
Par 3, Length 154m

A simple par three requiring a 7- or 8-iron to a large green surrounded by bunkers. Afternoon players may have to contend with a strong sea breeze which will blow across the hole from left to right complicating the shot.

5
Par 4, Length 315m

An interesting short dogleg par four. Length off the tee is not necessary. A well positioned tee shot to the middle of the fairway will leave a 9-iron or wedge to a bunkered green.

6
Par 5, Length 436m

This short par five will be a definite birdie hole for the long hitters. A drawn tee shot will leave a long to mid iron to the green.

7
Par 4, Length 309m

Players must shape their drives round the corner or else they will drive through the fairway into trees on the left. A 2-iron from the tee will leave a 9-iron to a generous size green. The conservative method of playing will offer more birdie opportunities.

8
Par 3, Length 173m

A good length par three requiring a 3- to 5-iron. There is much trouble left of the green with bunkers, rough and trees in the landing area.

9
Par 5, Length 491m

A good driving hole that will suit the long hitters. A drawn drive will enable the bombers to get home in two. The green is well protected on the left and left front with bunkers, and on the right is a swale and bunker. Players landing in the swale will find it extremely difficult to get up and down.

10
Par 4, Length 384m

A straightaway par four, the fairway bunker on the right and a bunker on the left may catch many drives that stray that way. The shot to the green is very deceptive with the top edge of the left hand bunker 10 metres short of the green, causing many players to underclub.

11
Par 3, Length 127m

This short par three has been the ruin of many a score. In still conditions the hole can be quite easy. However, when the wind gets up it is a different story calling for precise club selection and direction with bunkers completely surrounding the green.

12
Par 5, Length 445m

Another birdie hole that requires a straight drive leaving a fairly easy second shot. The green is protected on the left by a large bunker and on the right by a large mound. An interesting note is that Jack Nicklaus during his victorious 1971 Australian Open was not able to better par on this hole.

13
Par 5, Length 512m

A great hole with danger on every shot. The players drive over a slight rise with water left and bunkers and thick scrub right. The second shot requires length and accuracy with a fairway bunker on the left and scrub on both sides of the fairway to punish a miss-hit shot. The green is protected by two large bunkers front and back.

14
Par 4, Length 393m

This hole requires a good drive and exact club selection. A lake on the left hand side of the fairway will catch any wayward shot. A good drive will give the player a medium to long iron into the green. A bunker well short of the green makes club judgement very difficult.

15
Par 3, Length 200m

A tough hole requiring a very good 1- or 2-iron. There is a large bunker short right and another one green high to the left. Missing the green from the tee will require a good touch to secure par.

16
Par 4, Length 362m

A straightaway par four that requires caution off the tee as all the trouble is on the drive. A 1- or 2-iron will leave 5- to 7-iron to a generous green with bunkers either side.

17
Par 4, Length 329m

An easy par that should produce many birdies. A good drive will leave a simple pitch to a bunkered green.

18
Par 4, Length 359m

A medium length par four dogleg to the left. A slightly drawn drive would be ideal leaving a short iron to the green. A bunker on the right and the rough creep-in on the left will keep the players on their guard. The green runs from right to left with bunkers in front to the right making club selection tricky.

Tasmania Golf Club

Bounded by water on three sides, the spectacular Tasmania Golf Club course is set on the picturesque Barilla Bluff, where it has been since 1971. Narrow tree-lined fairways are augmented by superb panoramic views with large rolling greens and strategically placed green-side bunkers. The Tasmania Golf Club is a beautiful course and is an excellent test of golfing ability.

Bounded by water on three sides, the spectacular Tasmania Golf Club course is set on the picturesque Barilla Bluff, where it has been since 1971. Narrow tree-lined fairways are augmented by superb panoramic views with large rolling greens and strategically placed green-side bunkers.

The course was created by curator Ian Grimsey under the guidance of noted course architect, Mr. Al Howard. The feature hole of the course is the par 5, 3rd hole. From the championship markers it is awe inspiring and has been more than favourably compared to the notorious 18th hole at California's Pebble Beach layout.

However, this is just one of 18 challenging holes in a well balanced combination of par 3's, 4's and 5's for golfers of all standards to enjoy. This magnificent course was rated by the Australian Golf Digest Magazine as the best in Tasmania in its survey of 'Australia's Top 100 Courses for 1999.

The course has a beauty all of its own combining stands of eucalyptus trees and native shrubs. The promontory is also one of the last breeding grounds of the Eastern Rosella and it and many other native birds may be spotted during a round of golf. 

The Tasmania Golf Club is very proud of its reputation locally, interstate and internationally both for its physical beauty and as an excellent test of golfing ability. The course is only a 5-minute drive from the Hobart International Airport, and 15-minutes from Tasmania's capital city.

Course Information

Par: 72
ACR: 72
Length (m): 6200
Architect: Al Howard
Design Year: 1972

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 272m

The left side of the fairway should be favoured for the tee shot for a better approach to a green bunkered on both sides. Long hitters may drive this green.

2
Par 4, Length 307m

The sharp dog leg right calls for a well placed tee shot, perhaps an iron for the long hitters, to open up the green which is bunkered left and right.

3
Par 5, Length 500m

The famous third hole requires a drive to the right side of the fairway to make the trees on the left side of the dog leg easier to negotiate. The left side of the fairway past the dog leg is a safer line to avoid a bunker short and right of the green.

4
Par 4, Length 359m

An approach to a well-bunkered green from the left half of the fairway may be advisable if the pin is back right.

5
Par 3, Length 182m

This hole being uphill plays longer than its recorded length particularly into the prevailing wind. A shot to the left of the green will generally bounce on and avoid deep bunkers to the right.

6
Par 4, Length 323m

The ideal line here is the left side of the fairway to leave an approach that can be aimed away from the left side of the green which falls away steeply. The green slopes severely from back to front so staying below the hole is essential.

7
Par 4, Length 344m

Stay centre to right with the tee shot. The bunkers may not be able to be seen for the approach shot to the green. One bunker is to the left front of the green and there are two more deep bunkers to the right.

8
Par 3, Length 124m

This hole is greatly affected by wind which makes club selection vary greatly. There are three bunkers left and one right. Stay below the hole on this green if possible.

9
Par 4, Length 406m

Rated the most difficult hole on the course. Left centre is the line from the tee. Deep greenside bunkers left and one right. Stay below the hole on this green if possible.

10
Par 4, Length 360m

The drive should land on the right side of the sloping fairway. The green has a bunker right and a deep one front left.

11
Par 3, Length 102m

The shortest hole on the course affords beautiful views of Barilla Bay but can appear intimidating with two bunkers to the left of the green and a water hazard over the back of the green. It becomes increasingly difficult as the wind strengthens and a safety shot to the front right portion of the green may be satisfactory.

12
Par 5, Length 457m

A drive to the left of the fairway will finish in the centre. If the hole is cut back right lay up and play a short approach from the left side of the fairway to get it close. Greenside bunkers left, short left and right.

13
Par 4, Length 366m

The tee shot should be aimed to land on the right side of the fairway for a more level stance and to allow for the considerable slope. Greenside bunkers are placed front left and right. Once on the green stay below the hole.

14
Par 5, Length 442m

Left centre is the line from the tee. If a short approach remains plan to play it from the left side of the fairway. The green is bunkered left and right.

15
Par 4, Length 278m

The tee shot should be played to the right centre of the fairway. The shot to the green is straightforward although two deep bunkers to the right of the green may not be easily visible.

16
Par 5, Length 504m

A drive in the centre of the fairway at the longest hole on the course is ideal. If possible avoid having to play a blind approach shot from the base of the hill. Green side bunkers are front left and right.

17
Par 4, Length 324m

The line for the tee shot here is centre right. An approach from too far below the crest of the hill will leave a blind shot to a green with bunkers on the right and a deep bunker on the left.

18
Par 3, Length 148m

The uphill final hole plays longer than its measured length. If possible stay below the hole on this sloping two tiered green. Bunkers are placed short right and left of the green.

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.

Top 100: 4

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.

The Launceston Golf Club is the oldest 18 hole golf course in Tasmania and has a proud reputation locally and interstate for the presentation of its facilities and as an excellent test of golfing ability. The 5987 metre par 72 layout provides something for all golfers whether a beginner or seasoned golfer.

Carved out of natural bushland it provides the golfer with well manicured greens, strategically placed bunkers on every hole and eucalyptus tree lined fairways. With stands of black wood and wattle trees throughout the course you are unaware of the close proximity of the surrounding hustle & bustle of the suburbs. The undulating layout makes it very easy to walk throughout your round of golf. 

The signature hole is the 13th hole “Spion Kop”. The 157 metre par 3 has a narrow tree lined fairway, deep gully to transverse and strategically placed bunkers protecting the green, this hole has been the downfall of many golfers over the years.

The Club is situated between the leafy residential suburb of Norwood and bustling shopping centre of Kings Meadows. It is easily accessible only being 5kms south of the of the Launceston City Central Business District and 6kms from the Launceston Airport.
