Tom Doak and Michael Clayton share a love of great traditional courses from the first half of the 20th century and before, and having found a wonderful piece of land at Barnbougle Dunes in Tasmania, they do it full justice, creating a course that could grace the shores of Ireland or Scotland. Though, as with all the best courses, the wind can surely blow, this course is fair, with all the hazards visible. The clubhouse sits in the midst of the course, bracketed by two loops of nine holes, which prevents any long stretch of holes into or down wind. Perhaps the best hole is the 15th, a splendid par four along an inlet next to a dune ridge. After play the well-appointed clubhouse offers a warm welcome, with a restaurant, a bistro and an excellent wine cellar, not to mention the great dormitory facilities that are essential on far-away courses.

The Dunes course is certainly the tougher of the two courses at Barnbougle. The fairways here are quite wide, with enough room to move off the tee for all golfers, which side exactly you're required to be on is another thing ! Plenty of tee box options and depending the winds, you may want to lessen the length by teeing off on the front tees. Visually stunning layout with good variation of length across all three types of holes. It is a truly remarkable links course with undulating fairways and greens. The course is world class and golfers from all over the world flock here because of the seaside links your greeted with upon playing here. Enjoy the "spare two holes!"

Playing a Tom Doak course in Tasmania was something I had always wanted to do. So knowing I’d be in the region I decided to seize the opportunity! Got to play the course by myself and in excellent conditions. The price is very competitive for course of this quality though I feel they could do better with a couple of goodies and a higher end approach. As for the course, though excellent as expected I find it a bit too uneven with the front 9 being one of the best in the world with holes 3-7 being top top class including the par 3 7th, Tom little devil, and the back 9 is somehow less fabulous and flatter. For the anecdote my round became truly unforgettable when I crossed path with a Kangaroo on the 16th tee box! We got to stay at the hotel (lost farm) and that was very nice though the diner was a let down for the price. Definitely a great resort to come and play at!

Found this a stiffer test than Barnbougle's Lost Farm course, particularly the front nine, which was playing tough with the wind blowing opposite to the normal prevailing wind. Nonetheless, Tom Doak has carved out a wonderful course amongst the sand dunes, especially holes 4 to 9 situated adjacent to the ocean. The clubhouse offers great dining for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the staff throughout the resort are first-class.
