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.

Our 4 days at Barnbougle were without any doubt the golfing highlight of our time in Australia. Whilst I marginally preferred The Lost Farm course, Mrs V (the proper golfer in our family) has The Dunes as her favourite. Either way both are magical places & a real privilege to play. Harder in my view than the Lost Farm course, the front nine of this Tom Doak masterpiece is nothing short of sensational. The back nine is also great, & a proper test, whilst visually not quite the equal of what comes before. Barnbougle is a true Golfing Mecca with good facilities off the course too. Everyone there has come to play golf & I can’t remember seeing such a collection of happy golfers in one location ever before. Can’t wait to return.

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!"
