Golf worth travelling for

The Dunes Golf Course - Barnbougle

Travel to experience a unique golf course

Is Golf worth travelling for?

The Dunes Golf Course Barnbougle is a ‘must-go’ golf destination and definitely worth the travel to experience a unique golf course.

If a golf weekend with a group of mates is on the cards then seriously stop looking and start planning a trip to the Dunes golf course.

The Dunes golf course has a quirky history – it was once a strip of land along the coast of a potato farm on Tasmania’s north east coast. A fun fact to share (with those mates you’ve left behind) when you return from an enviable weekend away!

The Dunes golf course was designed by U.S Golf visionary Tom Doak and Australian Mike Clayton to channel the traditional links courses of Scotland and Ireland. We think they’ve done a ripper job and proof is definitely in the play.

Why play the Dunes golf course?

You can expect rolling fairways set amongst the wild and dramatic landscape where you can really test your skill playing dunes golf.

The Dunes golf course is a spectacular example of traditional Links golf where breathtaking scenery and challenging golf truly come together.

Fairways are wide, wider than most golfers will have experienced 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.

To sum up, golf at the Dunes is a game of strategy, where each shot requires tactical thought and lateral thinking.

Performance anxiety setting in? Relax, we’ve got you covered. There’s Practice Facilities to get you warmed up and if you want to take it up a notch, you can book a lesson with the professionals to perfect your driving, putting and chipping skills.    

Overlooking Barnbougle’s pristine beach sits the stunning Dunes golf club house – where you can seriously wind down between and after games with a well earned cold beer, premium local wine or any other bevvie to wet one’s whistle as you tuck into a hearty meal made with the freshest Tasmanian produce.
