Tasmania is as famous worldwide for its magnificent food, wine and whisky as it is for its memorable historical and natural attractions. And then, of course, there is golf.
In recent years the global spotlight has started to shine ever brighter on the quality of Tassie's golf courses.
Leading the way are what can be considered Tasmania's 'Awesome Foursome' – Barnbougle Dunes, Barnbougle Lost Farm and, the two King Island jewels, Cape Wickham Links and Ocean Dunes.
The four layouts have become the flagship for Tasmanian golf, gaining the Apple Isle an international reputation for excellence. In fact, Barnbougle Dunes, Lost Farm and Cape Wickham have all been ranked in the best 100 courses in the world, while all four can be found in the leading six courses of Golf Australia magazine's Top-100 Public Access Courses ranking for 2021.
With domestic travel now front of mind for most golfers, there has never been a better time to experience Tasmania's world-class golf courses. If you have never been, here's a sample of what you're missing ... it might even whet your golfing appetite to jump on a plane and have your own Tassie golfing adventure.
