Barnbougle Dunes, Bridport

(4.2/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
The jewel of the northeastern coast of Tasmania, Barnbougle Dunes is considered one of the world’s premier golf courses. Architects Tom Doak and Mike Clayton designed the 18-hole championship layout, setting the course on 81 hectares (200 acres) of undulating sand dunes that overlook Bass Strait. The layout is not long, but can be challenging to inexperienced players when the wind is blowing hard, which is often the case in this part of Tasmania. The site also includes 22 accommodation villas, a restaurant, and a conference facility perched on the dunes. Golf lover or not, enjoy a sunny day outdoors, and be sure to stop by the clubhouse for a refreshing drink after each round. Make Barnbougle Dunes a centerpiece of your Bridport vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bridport trip itinerary planner.

  • My third visit to Barnbougle and the first time staying at the dunes (previous trips were staying at lost farm, just down the road). The Dunes golf course itself is awesome and possibly the best links...  more »
  • Came here on a golf trip with a few others. We walked the course and it was tough going. If you choose to take a cart, book well in advance and you have to have a driver/caddie for insurance purposes....  more »
  • We arrived here to play the 2 Barnbougle courses. This is the more challenging one, especially the front 9. It is very much like a links course in Ireland or Scotland, built into the dunes. Beautiful ...  more »

  • Spent the most incredible weekend down at Barnbougle with some friends and family. It has always been Dad's dream to play these hallowed fairways and the experience was even better that we could have imagined! Both courses are simply breathtaking. The views of the coastline are incredible and the conditions of the courses superb. They are quite different from each other which made for an exciting weekend of golf. Especially couldn't believe what a great deal the green fees are! On site accommodation is great with all the facilities you need; I could not get enough of the treatments at the spa! Just a perfect way to relax after a few hours on course while the boys headed to the sports bar. Everything was made even better by the wonderful staff. From the proshop, to the restaurants, to the villas, everyone was so helpful and friendly, making us feel totally welcome. Am busily planning my next trip already!
  • Best course i have ever played on. It was a great day of golf nice scenery. The greens are tricky to read but that is the best part of it, all the staff are lovely.
  • I and 7 other golfers spent 5 days at Lost Farm at the end of April.The weather was fantastic .The two course are seriously difficult and you have to use your golfing brain to avoid serious trouble.It is not a resort so anybody thinking it is will be disappointed. The courses cater for the very good golfers and the ''C'' graders.I've read the comments about course maintenance and in our experience we did not find this a problem because of the local rules allowing you to lift out of divetts and foot marks in the bunkers. The accommodation at Lost Farm is very up market .The rooms are spacious ,the bathrooms of generous proportions .I found the mattress too soft for me and may have contributed to back problems I experienced on the golf course.The restaurant at Lost Farm was excellent and none of us had any serious complaints.My breakfast on one occasion took 30 minutes to arrive but that was all.The Lost Farm complex does have a no BYO policy but it is not set in concrete and one can approach the staff and negotiate a ''corkage '' fee. The group is very keen to return next year which probably is the best praise of all.
  • awful condition…. the tees are appalling, the fairways less than average, and the greens 3rd rate. great layout as tho it`s designed by walt Disney. but for $100 you would expect the place to be up to scratch… it`s not!!! reminds me of those 9-hole courses in Scotland where you put the green fee in a box. very underwhelming. and then there`s the flies………..
