Barnbougle Dunes Golf Links
Barnbougle is a links golf course unlike anything ever seen in Australia. You play between, over, and across towering dunes, where breathtaking views and thrilling golf provides a dramatic setting that is equal to the best links courses in the world.
The course is strong enough to test the best players but fair enough to be joy for any player. Spectacular views and some of the greatest short holes in the world, it is an 18 holes championship links golf course whose layout and design equals the great courses of Britain and Ireland.
Located on the edge of the small Tasmanian town of Bridport, Barnbougle Dunes is an hour's drive north-east of Launceston, right on the wild north coast that overlooks Bass Straight. A course for the people, Barnbougle Dunes continues the tradition of the great American public courses at Pebble Beach and Pinehurst and the Old Course at St Andrews in Scotland, having no members.
Everyone is welcome to play and enjoy the first class clubhouse facilities.
Barnbougle Dunes is a course that requires strategy and plotting a suitable path according to your ability. It does not require brute strength, yet there are places to exert power to an advantage.
The outward nine at Barnbougle plays through a series of saddles that both shelter and direct play lines. The back nine is more open but arguably more striking with multiple panoramas of the course, adjoining bay and the town of Bridport.
The fairways are wider than those of more traditional courses. The true lines to the flags are from the corners of the fairways and the perfect position alters depending on the direction and strength of the wind, the position of the pin and your standard as a player.
Barnbougle Dunes ACR is 75, making it a very challenging course.
