Barnbougle Dunes is a links golf course with breathtaking views near Bridport, north-east Tasmania. The dramatic scenery and challenging 18-hole championship course is among the best links courses worldwide.
The layout is a mix of voluptuous dunes, sandy waste and rough typical of a links course. The same blend of fescue grass extends from tee to green, and there is dramatic movement in its bumpy fairways and rolling greens. This is best exemplified by the outward nine, which plays through a series of saddles that both shelter and direct play lines. The back nine is striking with multiple panoramas of the course, adjoining the bay and the town of Bridport in the distance.
Enjoy the par-71 design which does not require brute strength, but allows you to exert power to an advantage at certain points. No matter what your ability, this course lends itself well to strategy and plotting a suitable path. There is a driving range, putting green and chipping green with bunkers for you to hone your technique. At the end of the day enjoy the spectacular public clubhouse or stay in the Barnbougle cottages.
Barnbougle Dunes is approximately one hours’ drive northeast of Launceston (83 kilometres/51 miles).
