King Island Golf and Bowling Club is located at Currie, on King Island’s west coast. King Island is 80 kilometres/50 miles north east of Tasmania – a 50-minute flight north-west of Wynyard and a one-hour-and-twenty-minute flight from Devonport.
The Club’s nine-hole course-which has been compared to St Andrew’s of Scotland and is an authentic coastal links with undulating fairways. This challenging course has fantastic ocean views and is completely open to the elements, with west winds affecting almost every hole. Highlights include the third, par three hole which is played from a clifftop towards the sea, and the testing fifth hole, which requires a long hit to clear water skirting the fairway.
You can follow your round with a well-earned drink and a tasty meal in the licensed club house. Guides, clubs and buggy hire are all available and the Club also has bowling greens and squash courts.
The two-day King Island Open, held here each November, attracts over 100 golfers from across Australia. The Open includes 18-hole and 36-hole events for ladies and men as well as a 36-hole junior handicap event.
