Tasmania, Australia

Barnbougle is now home to three courses – Barnbougle Dunes, The Lost Farm, and the short Bougle Run – making it one of the world’s great golf resorts and worthy of flying halfway around the world to experience.

The golf world stood up and took notice of little-known Tasmania as a links golf destination when the original Barnbougle Dunes course opened in 2004. It was the brilliant vision and collaboration between Tom Doak and ex-Australian professional, Mike Clayton.

They transformed a former family potato farm on Tasmania’s pristine northeast coast into a World Top 100 Golf Course.

The Dunes has been as high as #11 on Golf Digest’s Top 100 list and sits firmly in Australia’s Top 5 layouts. The design rewards creativity as the player strategically negotiates the dramatic dunes adjacent to Anderson Bay. The 4th hole is home to the largest bunker in the southern hemisphere and is definitely a hazard to avoid.

The Lost Farm & Bougle Run

While similar, The Dunes sister course, Lost Farm, by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, has its own distinctive character. Located about a pitching wedge across the river that runs through the property it exhibits the minimalist style Coore/Crenshaw is known for as the routing compliments the natural contours of the landscape. 

Like The European Club in Ireland, the land exposed 20 green and tee sites, therefore Lost Farm features two bonus par 3s – 13a and 18a. It has been as high as #23 on Golf Digest’s Top 100 list and enjoys being consistently among Australia’s Top 10 Courses.

The newest addition is Coore/Crenshaw’s short course, Bougle Run. The 14-hole layout sits on top of the dune line behind the Lost Farm course. This setting provides fabulous views across Lost Farm out to Anderson Bay. The design showcases twelve par 3’s and two par 4’s and is a great fun pre or post-round experience to compliment the two championship courses.

There are a variety of quality accommodations right on-site including the 2-bedroom Dunes Cottages, the 2-bedroom Ocean Villas, the 4-bedroom Bunker Villas, and the single and double accommodations in The Lost Farm Lodge. All are complemented by the Barnbougle Spa and dining options featuring the freshest local ingredients.
