DAY 1 Wednesday 9 February 2022 Victoria Golf Club
Play Victoria Golf Club, rated #73 in the World by US Golf Digest Today we will meet at Victoria Golf Club one of the jewels of Australian golf. Victoria Golf Club has challenged some of the game’s greatest players in professional tournaments. Yet it still provides an enjoyable round for the skilful player or the golfer that simply enjoys playing the great game of golf. Five-time winner of The Open Championship, the late Peter Thomson, Jack Nicklaus, Gene Sarazen, Tiger Woods and Karrie Webb have all graced Victoria with their presence. After golf you will enjoy a meal in the club’s dining room and then retire to the wonderfully appointed club accommodation.
DAY 2 Thursday 10 February 2022 Barnbougle, Tasmania
Play Barnbougle Dunes, rated #16 in the World by US Golf Digest Today after breakfast overlooking the first tee of Victoria Golf Club we will take the ten minute trip to Moorabbin Airport. After acquainting ourselves with our luxury plane we will land, after a one hour flight, on the airstrip adjacent to the second fairway of Barnbougle Dunes. Once we have stored our luggage in the Dunes clubhouse we will start the Tasmanian section of our golfing adventure. Barnbougle Dunes is a Links Golf Course unlike any other in Australia. Meandering along Tasmania’s dramatic North East coast, it’s where breathtaking scenery and thrilling golf truly come together. Fairways are wide, wider than most golfers will have experienced on traditional courses. The greens are lively; rolling with the natural undulation of the dunes and with the 4th hole boasting the largest bunker in the southern hemisphere, this course is designed to challenge. After golf on the Dunes we will take the shuttle to the Lost Farm Villas where we will stay for two nights. The views from the restaurant have a marvellous outlook over both the course and the Bass Strait.
DAY 3 Friday 11 February 2022 Barnbougle
Play Lost Farm, rated #47 in the World by US Golf Digest Today after waking to the sound of crashing waves you will play the Lost Farm course. The Lost Farm tracks along the coast and inland amongst sand dunes that are significantly steeper than those featured at the neighbouring Barnbougle Dunes. The strategic bunkering and undulating greens combined with wide fairways make for a course that offers an exciting challenge for golfers of all abilities. For the super keen golf tourist there is the optional opportunity to play Bougle Run designed by internationally acclaimed golf architect Bill Coore of Coore & Crenshaw. Bougle Run offers 14 holes set atop the undulating sand dunes found behind Barnbougle Lost Farm. The track offers twelve par-3s and two par- 4s, which includes some of the highest points of the entire complex.
DAY 4 Saturday 12 February 2022 Hobart
After a leisurely breakfast we say goodbye to Barnbougle and fly south to Australia’s southernmost capital Hobart. On arrival in Hobart the rest of the day is free to enjoy the Salamanca markets or perhaps take the ferry to MONA Gallery.

Play Royal Hobart Golf Club Royal Hobart is recognised as Tasmania’s premier members’ Club and particular emphasis is placed on presenting the course in impeccable condition all year round.

Thirteen holes are on the coast itself, with eight holes running along the coastline, and another five with tee or green on the shoreline. The additional holes wind through the adjacent dunes. Combine Turnberry with Pebble Beach and you have a pretty good idea what to look forward too.
