Had a 2 day visit to Barnbougle Dunes/Lost Farm. The weather was pretty bad. Windy with rain both days but it adds to the experience of playing this course. The staff are warm and friendly. It seems like they know they have a very special place and that people in most cases have travelled a long way to play there and are very accommodating.
The courses themselves are superb. They are always in super condition (I've played there 3 times) and quite challenging. Your experience will be enhanced if you play off the tees appropriate to your handicap. Don't play the hero off the black tees if you're not that good.
We stayed on course at Barnbougle Dunes. The cabins are well appointed and convenient. You are best to hire a car from Launceston Airport. The course is an easy 75-90 minuted drive from the aiport. Having a car also allows you to commute between the 2 courses easily (they are probably 7kms apart clubhouse to clubhouse). We haven't eaten at Barnbougle Dunes but have eaten in the sports bar at Lost Farm. They do great pizzas.
Lost Farm is more dramatic/visually spectacular given there are several holes that run through big sand dunes. Barnbougle Dunes is a more strategic test but no less brilliant. In short, if you love golf these 2 courses are a must do. And if you go once you're likely to want to go again and again and again and..........
