The Zeehan Golf Course is a challenging, nine-hole course in western Tasmania. Zeehan is a classified historic town, two hours’ drive south west of Burnie (155 kilometres/96 miles) and 40 minutes north of Strahan (46 kilometres/29 miles).
This short but tough Zeehan Golf Course includes three, par three holes and five par fours. The course has a light coverage of trees and most greens are elevated, increasing your challenge. Green fee guests are welcome; the course does not have hire or club room facilities. The Zeehan Golf Course rewards players with stunning views of surrounding mountains, including Mount Heemskirk. This small, forested mountain was named by explorers Bass and Flinders after a ship used by Abel Tasman during his epic voyage of discovery to Van Dieman’s Land in 1642.
In the early 20th century, Zeehan was Tasmania’s third largest town, with a population of 10,000 people. You can discover the town’s rich mining heritage at the West Coast Pioneer Memorial Museum. Take a walk to see Zeehan’s many historic buildings, including the Gaiety Theatre (1899), once Australia’s largest concert hall and theatre.
