Not much needs to be said about
this golf course built amongst the towering sand dunes near Bridport on
Tasmania's north coast. The unique links course is already being hailed as
one of the worlds great links courses even before it's official opening.
The course belongs here and looks like it has been here 100 years.
Bridport is not just

visitor. Fifteen or twenty minutes drive west is the home of Tasmania's
premium wineries. Bridport itself is a favourite summer holiday
destination for Tasmanians with the population increasing by 10,000 or
more. There are 2 hotels and another resort and a nine hole country golf
course. A newly completed walking trail follows the coastline past
several 'boutique' safe beaches. Extensive sand dunes continue east of Barnbougle and are a very popular camping destination.
