An island of rugged, untouched natural beauty, Tasmania is the ideal setting for a golf course — especially if that course incorporates the wilderness into its fairways, as Barnbougle Dunes does. Located next to the seaside village of Bridport on the island's northeast coast, this 18-hole, championship, public golf course was designed by fairway architects Tom Doak and Mike Clayton. As its name implies, it is set among rolling sand dunes on 200 dramatic acres. In addition to a clubhouse for post-game relaxation, facilities include a casual dining room where guests can sample regional cuisine and wines. Accommodations consist of charming cottages with large viewing decks overlooking the golf course and sea.
