Barnbougle Golf (Lost Farm course)

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2010

Barnbougle Golf (Lost Farm course): Laid out on Tasmania's wonderfully natural north-east coast, Barnbougle's original Dunes course opened for play in 2004. The club's owner Richard Sattler, was clearly not content with just one world-class layout. The extraordinary tract of pristine duneland, which lay between his farmland and the sea, could easily support a second layout ... and maybe one with more than 18 holes. In 2010 The Dunes gained a sibling ... Lost Farm.

The Lost Farm layout features 20 holes, all of which are playable in any one round. The course tracks along the coast and inland amongst sand dunes that are significantly steeper than those of the original Dunes course. Designed by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore, the newer layout is located east of the original course, just across a small river inlet known as Adam's Cut. The far end of the course rubs shoulders with a huge shifting dune, which measures over 3 km long and a kilometre wide.

Boasting many spectacular holes, the layout winds through the impressive duneland, alongside the Forester River and inland towards the Tasmanian hinterland. The golfing thrills and ocean vistas onto Bass Strait, match those of its older sibling. Lost Farm, like The Dunes, presents another excellent golfing challenge in a classical seaside links setting.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.
