Tasmania, Australia’s island state is renown for its untouched wilderness, pristine coastline, cool climate wines and fresh local produce. On the north East coast of Tasmania lies a hidden gem and one of the world’s top Links golf courses, Barnbougle Dunes. Upon 200 acres of undulating coastal dunes the creative genius of famed golf architect Tom Doak and Australia’s Michael Clayton has been realized. Barnbougle, still only in its youth, continues to gain a reputation as one of the world’s top links golf courses. The breathtaking landscape upon which the course has been created mirrors the wild coastal links courses of Scotland and Ireland. In 2010 Barnbougle Lost Farm, the Coore and Crenshaw designed second course at Barnbougle, opened for play. Barnbougle Lost Farm is situated adjacent to the Dunes course on the wild and dramatic coastline of Anderson Bay.. Unlike a standard course, Lost Farm features a quirky 20 holes – all of which are playable to golfers during a round.
