The Golf Courses of King Island
Cape Wickham Links has ocean views from every hole. The course made a spectacular entry in to The Golf Digest USA world top 100 ranking, debuting at no 24!
Ocean Dunes starts with four ocean holes that completely blow you away! Thereafter the course turns inland, but the quality of holes does not diminish. Each hole has its own surprises, and has you on your toes with anticipation. The holes move through the huge dunescape offering variety and perfectly complementing the ocean holes.
King Island Golf & Bowling Club is a nine hole course on rolling linksland near the town of Currie. In recent years it has gained acclaim as one of the best nine hole course in the world.
Whilst not in the class of the two new courses, the nine holer occupies classic links land and would provide an excellent warm up round to the main event.
Barnbougle Dunes was designed by legendary architect Tom Doak and opened in 2004. It was immmediately recognised as a classic and is a lock as one of the top 35 courses in the world. It has to be one of the most fun courses to play on the planet!
The second course at Barnbougle is Barnbougle Lost Farm, which was designed by Coore & Crenshaw in dramatic sand dunes adjacent to the Little Forrester River and the original course. It has been recognised as a world top 100 course
