Tasmania Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1971

Bounded by water on three sides, the Tasmania Golf Club is set on the picturesque Barilla Bluff, jutting out into a spectacular natural harbour (Pitt Water) - located just 15 minutes east of Hobart CBD and 2 minutes from Hobart Airport - this challenging, undulating course is characterised by tightish, tree-lined fairways, that lead you to well bunkered, breaking greens - towering eucalyptus are among many tree varieties that provide good, but not overly dense separation to the holes - more of a shot-makers course than a utopia for wayward big-hitters, as the steep, downhill, short par-4 1st will underline - you won't have to wait long to play one of the most spectacular golf holes in all of Australia - played from an elevated harbour-side tee to an elegantly right-to-left doglegging fairway, the par-5 3rd is perched above the tree-lined bluffs and hugs the harbour's scenic shoreline from tee-to-green - on the also immensely scenic back-nine, the 11th hole steals the show; this downhill par-3 is played to a glorious backdrop provided by the harbour and on your left, Barilla Bay - always challenging thanks to several pronounced elevation changes and the general tightness of the fairways, but also fabulously scenic throughout, with Pitt Water and more distant hills providing many wonderful views from the course.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
