“Don't let those wide fairways lull you into a false sense of security”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

because you will need to stay on them, and that's not easy to do when the wind blows, and blows and blows. But what a superb experience..!!! My score was pretty pedestrian, but I took away superb memories, and will look forward to having another opportunity to play.

The view from the restaurant, overlooking a small portion of the course and the ocean, is simply stunning, so allow time to relax there following your game . . . the meal was delish as well :))

“A Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Spent four days at Barnbougle Lost Farm. Played both Lost Farm and the Dunes. Lost Farm is very Irish and punishes you off the fairways, the Dunes is friendlier in the rough but more challenging greens. Both courses offer four variations through the choice of different tee boxes and even subtle variations create an entirely different course. The accommodation at Lost Farm is very comfortable and the restaurant is excellent, albeit not extensive. The wine list offers great choice in price, vintage and region. Well worth a visit from the keen golfer.

“Great Restaurant - Brilliant Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Having recently had the pleasure of visiting the restaurant at the Lost Farms Golf Course at Bridport, we wish to advise that it is a great spot to chill out and enjoy the scenery together with a brilliant view back over Bridport and the Lost Farms Golf Course. The menu is relatively basic, but the food is lovely. We had the char grilled burger and the pan fried bream with avacoda, mango and a lovely tartare sauce. Both were cooked perfectly and we would happily go back there again for them. The only problem is that you really need a local to show you where to find "Lost Farms" as there is little advertising and the road signage is poor.

“Barbougle Lost farm Golf Links”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

I travelled to Launceston, Tasmania in January 2013 and whilst there I took the opportunity to play both Golf Australia magazine's number 1 and 2 public access courses as listed in their January 2013 edition.

Barnbougle Lost Farm is not a long or difficult course to walk and play with the black tees measuring at 6503m (Black), red tees measuring 6102m (Terra-Cotta), blue tees measuring 5402m (Blue) and the white tees measuring 4410m (Cream). There are no electric buggies to hire so every player walks.

This is no ordinary links course with the story going that the two developers decided to build 20 holes just in case one of the holes didn't turn out as they hoped. They then sat down over a bottle of red wine to decide which two holes to drop. After the bottle they still couldn't decide which holes to drop, so they had another bottle of red. Again they couldn't come to a consensus and decided to have a third bottle of red wine. In the end the developers decided to keep all the holes in play and therefore become a 20 hole course with a par of 78.

The first thing that I noticed about Lost Farm were the size of the dunes and how wide the fairways were. The course was beautifully presented. I played on the hottest day in january for sometime and this was also the day of the Tasmanian bushfires. It was quite hot on the day but only in the mid 30's. The thing that i noticed was that it was very still and hot down the bottom of the dunes, but you got a beautiful breeze when you walked back up to the tees and greens.

For the longer hitters the 3rd, 9th, and 14th are reachable off the tee (I hit all 3).

At $98 for the round it was well worth the hour drive from Launceston.

“A fantastic course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Great complement to the Dunes Course and when staying on site you can use your room card at both courses for charge back.
