Bridport is located on the shores of Anderson Bay and is a popular holiday resort town for Tasmanians.  There are several small 'boutique' safe beaches along the coast.  The beach just to the east of the town is cut off by the Brid river, making direct access only by wading or swimming the river.  The eastern end of the course is bounded by the Great Forester River.  Mt Horror dominates the skyline to the east!  Barnbougle Dunes is a farming property just east of the river and is separated from the bay by towering sand dunes.  A perfect setting for a golf course. The Tom Oaks designed course is difficult to compare with other courses in Australia.   It is in a category of it's own akin to the great links courses of the United Kingdom.  It's almost perfect.  Perhaps it is!  It is a work of art - a masterpiece!

 

The course is very user friendly - although it is very intimidating the first time you play it!  You tend to forget about the golf and simply admire the golf course and the scenery!  Most fairways are very wide and of a sensible length for the average golfer.  However, once you stray off the fairway the ball is usually lost.
