Golf courses in Tasmania ace national list

Tasmania may be the smallest state in Australia, but it is home to three of the best five golf courses in Australia, Golf Australia magazine's latest national rankings for 2024 show.

Royal Melbourne's west course took top spot, while another Victorian course, Kingston Heath, was second.

Then came Cape Wickham links on King Island (image) , followed by two Barnbougle courses outside Bridport in the state's north-east.

"Cape Wickham is one of the most visually perfect courses I’ve ever played," said judge Steve Davis."The dramatic views combined with pure surfaces makes it a world-class links course.”

Barnbougle Dunes was ranked fourth, ahead of its younger brother, Barnbougle Lost Farm.

Judge Peter Robertson described Barnbougle Dunes as “the Tasmanian course that started it all. Still one of the best in the country and some of the best-value golf on the planet.”

Judge Adrian Logue said of The Lost Farm: “There really is something about Lost Farm that entices the player into thinking they’re a chance of making a good score. Certainly, great shots are rewarded but the punishment for a poor shot at the wrong time is just as able to cruel a whole round.”
The magazine said 163 courses across Australia received votes from its judges over a two-year rolling ranking period.

Other Tasmanian courses to make the list were the Tasmania Golf Club near Hobart Airport at 73,  Royal Hobart Golf Club at 67, "mini" course Bougle Run at 40 and Ocean Dunes on King Island at 17. .
