You’ve heard the stories. Barnbougle is ‘as good as it gets’.  It is golf that is deliciously unpredictable and highly addictive. It is some of the most exciting, beautiful, and “magical” golf in Australia. It is as close as it gets to playing the likes of Lahinch and Ballybunion in Ireland and The Old Course at St Andrews, Scotland. And, thanks to 6 different sets of tees, you don’t have to have a low handicap to enjoy it.


The Barnbougle 4-Ball Golf Challenge is a unique team’s event format combining best ball, ambrose and aggregate competitions in handicap divisions. Single entrants will be paired into a team.


Our group take over. The whole place has been booked out for our exclusive use and it wont take long before doors are left open and bottles of wine are shared over balconies.


This event is extremely social! You will compete in teams of 2 and play with new teams everyday. There are over 20 singles who join us each year and all singles will be partnered up - that's our guarantee!


During the week you will dress up in fancy dress. It helps you earn points for your team. We have seen green leprechauns, blue Barnbougle pencils, purple trolls and yellow daffodils.


This is God's country. The untouched wilderness, rolling dunes and clean air will inspire you to breathe a little deeper for those glorious, “tell-your-friends-about-it” shotmaking moments.

The Barnbougle Golf Challenge is an enjoyable week where you can play two of Australia’s greatest courses and relax a little more as you are on holidays. I came as a single player but Go Golfing found me a playing partner with ease. I found the pairs events great, as we could plan a strategy together. Great competition, courses, accommodation and food all week. I would recommend this tournament to all golfers. I enjoyed it very much!

Bernard Hogan

The Go Golfing management ensured the booking process was easy. The whole week was an unforgettable experience with great courses being both Barnbougle
Dunes and Lost Farm played twice during the week. The company of friendly fellow golfers with time to play golf and relax made for a positive golfing holiday in a beautiful location.

Barnbougle Lost Farm

#23 in the World by U.S. Golf Digest

Just a short pitching wedge across the river from The Dunes, lies Barnbougle’s second instalment – Lost Farm. Despite Lost Farm’s close proximity to The Dunes, it is remarkably different, featuring 20-holes that wind along the coast and through the coastal dunes.

Ranked as the #2 public course in Australia by Golf Australia Magazine, and #23 in the World by US Golf Digest, the Lost Farm course is an exciting challenge for Golfers from all levels of experience. Before you depart for Lost Farm, take a tour of the course, or reserve professional lessons onsite. When you arrive, make the most of our practice facilities and competitive rates on golf fees for both 9 and 18 hole games–all day.

Barnbougle Dunes

Barnbougle Dunes

#11 Golf Course in the World by U.S. Golf Digest

The elder of the two courses, The Dunes is a spectacular example of traditional Links golf. Why not take a Course Tour to become acquainted with this beautiful landscape? There are Practice Facilities to get you warmed up and if you want to get serious, perfect your driving, putting and chipping skills under one of our teaching professionals. Overlooking Barbougle’s pristine beach sits the stunning Dunes Clubhouse – where you can wind down between and after games with a refreshing drink and a hearty meal.

The Dunes course also offers a range of services you can peruse, from club and golf cart hire to professional assistance from your own personal caddy.

The Competition

Entry is open to all male and female golfers with an official handicap.


Tournament Divisions & Team Events

Tournament divisions will be split by Men Only, Ladies Only and Mixed Divisions. Prizes will be awarded daily and overall within each division for winners and runners up.

Six teams (each with 12 golfers) will also be randomly drawn to form a team. Each team will be allocated a colour. There will be a prize the winning team based on the aggregate points accrued for the 4 rounds. Additional points are also awarded for the best dressed team on the welcome dinner and toward winners of the beach games and chipping and putting competitions

Handicap verification

In partners­­­hip with GOLFLink (Australia) and International Golf Associations the tournament committee will review the 6 month playing history of all entrants. The tournament committee reserves the right to amend player handicaps. 

The ‘slope handicap system’ will be utilised to calculate player handicaps for the Championship rounds. Under the slope system, the difficulty of the golf course and the tee blocks played from determine a player’s handicap prior to the start of each round.


Pace of play

For the enjoyment of all players, field sizes will be limited. Tips to improve speed of play and the penalties for slow play will be provided to all players.
