Barnbougle Dunes is a course that rewards strategic thinking. Players can plot a path according to their ability, then exert power when the opportunity arises.
“It is difficult to imagine a player of any handicap not enjoying the Barnbougle Dunes experience.” – Steve Keipert, Australian Golf Digest, 2005
A course that caters to all
The outward nine at Barnbougle plays through a series of saddles that both shelter and direct play lines. The back nine is more open but arguably more striking, with multiple panoramas of the course, adjoining bay and nearby Bridport.
The fairways are wider than those of more traditional courses. The true lines to the flags are from the corners of the fairways and the perfect position alters depending on the direction and strength of the wind, the position of the pin and your standard as a player.
Some of the shortest holes are the most interesting, with both the 4th and 12th holes less than 275 metres from the back tee. Complementing these holes are the par four 8th and the two par fives in the back nine which reward powerful strokes combined with measured control.
A breakthrough in golf course design
The greens at Barnbougle 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.
As Nigel Wall of Golf Australia Magazine said, “Barnbougle Dunes represents a breakthrough in this country”. So why not plan your Barnbougle visit today to see why Tasmania has earned its place on the map of world golfing destinations?
