Barnbougle Dunes, Tasmania Golf Tour

I have recently returned from Tasmania where I hosted our very first, International Golf Specialists golf tour to Barnbougle Dunes.
Barnbougle Dunes is an amazing golfing destination, located 50 kilometres north east of Launceston, just near the seaside fishing village of Bridport. There are two purpose built links courses, the older Dunes course and the newer Lost Farm course. Both are constructed within and around the sand dunes of the Forrester River, and sit adjacent to Bass Strait. 
Both courses have famous American designers, Tom Doak (Dunes) and Bill Coore (Lost Farm) and are designed on the lines of the famous British and Irish links courses. The Dunes is only 8 years old, but looks like it has been around for a hundred years. The Dunes course is Golf Digest #1 Public Access course in Australia … Lost Farm is #2!
The tour was so successful, we have arranged two more group tours to Barnbougle. The dates are 03 -06 December 2013 and 18-21 February 2014. Both tours are listed as “Exclusive Tasmania Tour” on the website.
Some comments from those that participated in the recent tour … “a fantastic trip with a great bunch of guys to a sensational golf location”. “This must be what golf in heaven is like”. “Barnbouglewas something special … can’t wait to go back again next year”!
We have great rates and contacts at Barnbougle Dunes, so why don’t you join an International Golf Specialists group tour, or let us prepare a specialised itinerary for you & your golfing mates and experience a golfing “Mecca”!
