Welcome to King Island, here there is no fanfare, no award winning clubhouse, no high-rise buildings or fancy entrance road. Just two magnificent courses along some of the golfing world’s most perfectly undulated links terrain, and that is what makes this place so special. I invite you to see the magic for yourself at the inaugural King Island Cup – a week of world-class golf, food, fun and friendship.

THE COMPETITION FORMAT

The King Island Cup is a Ryder Cup style team event between King Island local golfers and our group. The format will combine twosome matchplay aggregate & better ball and the final round will be played as a singles matchplay. Single entrants will be paired into a team. Played over 3 rounds, one team will reign supreme, and the Cup will either remain with the King Island locals or be brought to the mainland to call home for the next 12 months.

IT'S ALL ABOUT US & NO ONE ELSE

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.

MEET NEW PEOPLE

This event is extremely social! Limited to only 40 players. We will compete as a team and play with new locals everyday. It's perfect for couples and singles. Single entrants will be partnered up - that's our guarantee!

The Golf Courses

king island cape wickham go golfing

Cape Wickham

Ranked #1 in Australia (public access)
Ranked #21 in the World

Welcome to Cape Wickham, a true test of links golf that you won’t forget. If you find yourself not having the best score, take a deep breath and remind yourself of where you are – how good is golf.

Every hole on the course has an ocean view, which is extremely rare, and no 2 holes are the same. The undulating course normally plays firm, allowing the imagination to go wild with limitless shot-making possibilities. Tees, Fairways and Greens are all seeded with fescue grass, following in the footsteps of the old traditional links courses in Scotland and Ireland.

Ocean Dunes

Ranked #4 in Australia (public access)
Ranked #29 in the World

Aptly named, Ocean Dunes consists of rolling dunes and unsurpassed views along 2km of majestic coastline – land made for golf. The course has received international fame for its two spectacular signature par threes crossing the surging ocean and are sure to delight, but with so many 360 degree ocean views from nearly every hole you will certainly never forget Ocean Dunes, King Island.

The Competition

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

 

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.
