In golf terms, Barnbougle is young. Whilst the rolling fairways of the courses, set amongst the wild and dramatic landscape, look as though they were established long before we could jump on a plane and fly across Bass Strait to Tasmania, it was only in 2004 that the first course – The Dunes – opened for play. Designed by renowned modern golf architect Tom Doak and Australia ex-European tour pro and course designer Mike Clayton, Barnbougle Dunes was once a strip of land along the coast of a potato farm on Tasmania’s north east coast. Their design philosophy was embraced by golfers far and wide and the Dunes soon earned a position amongst the world’s top ranked golf courses. Since opening in December 2004, The Dunes has maintained its position as the number one public access course in Australia. The Dunes is also a regular on ‘must play’ lists around the world.
With the reputation of Barnbougle Dunes continuing to augment, the idea of a second course at Barnbougle was conceived. In December 2010, Lost Farm, the 20 hole sister to The Dunes opened for play. Designed and constructed by Coore & Crenshaw on the steeper and more dramatic sand dunes across the river from The Dunes, Lost Farm was developed with similar design principles – that the best links courses compliment the natural topography of the land.
Lost Farm has quickly captured the attention of international golfers of all abilities. Within 8 months of opening, it entered the World Top 100 List (by U.S. Golf Magazine) at #82. It continues to attract serious golfers from around the globe, and no one has been disappointed on arrival. Tasmania may be a remote location, but it's worth every single air mile.
