Today we tee off at Launceston Golf Club. Tasmania’s oldest 18 hole course is carved from natural bushland and blends seemlessly into its surroundings. The par 72 poses many challenges: it will have you using every club in your bag and rewards those who take a risk. The signature hole is titled ‘Spion Kop’ and presents a daunting par 3 over a steep valley.
Non-golfers start their day with a tour of Bridestowe Lavender Estate where rows of lavender seem to stretch infinitely, painting the landscape purple. After wandering the fields, we’ll visit Hillwood Berry Farm and finish with a delicious lunch and wine tasting at Leaning Church Vineyard.
Relax with an evening at leisure.

After the cruise, we’ll make our way to Barnbougle where natural treasures abound. Discover secluded beaches, lush forests and quaint towns. Though a beautiful destination on its own, Barnbougle is most known for its magnificent golf courses, both ranked in the top 40 in the world and top 4 in Australia.
Check in to Lost Farm, the luxury golf lodge that is home to the two sensational courses you’ll be playing. After you’ve settled in, we’ll get together for a chipping and putting competition!

(B, wine and cheese) Hotel: Lost Farm Golf Lodge, Barnbougle
Golfers are in for a superb round today. After breakfast, simply step out of the lodge for your first taste of golf in Barnbougle. Ranked #4 in Australia, The Dunes is a spectacular example of traditional links golf. A delicate blend of breathtaking landscapes and an undulating layout intertwined with grassy dunes result in truly thrilling golf that will leave every golfer craving more. Situated on the dramatic North East coast, your round here will be nothing less than spectacular.
The Dunes requires a game of strategy and favours tactical shots. The fairways are wide and the greens roll with the natural undulations. Beware the 4th featuring the largest bunker in the southern hemisphere!

(B) Hotel: Lost Farm Golf Lodge, Barnbougle
We’ve saved the best ‘til last… Ranked #2 in Australia and #33 in the world, Lost Farm is a sensational links experience right on the coast. Though just across the river from its older sibling, the course offers a vastly different experience over its 20 holes. The captivating layout perfectly compliments the natural shape of the land resulting in a traditional and strategic game.
Watch out for the sand dunes that are significantly steeper than those on The Dunes and strategically placed to defend the green. It’s safe to say, Lost Farm provides a challenging but deeply satisfying round you’ll never forget.
The golfers aren’t the only ones in for a treat today as non-golfers will indulge in a relaxing spa experience at Barnbougle Spa.

A very professionally run golf tour company that provides a fantastic mix of golf and sightseeing, whilst meeting other people that shared the same interests.
I would recommend to anyone to travel with Go Golfing. The accommodation was first class. The golf courses were absolutely brilliant and in mint condition.
The trip was a fantastic experience, the people and hosts were terrific. This was our first tour so we had no specific expectations. The golf courses were exceptional, the accommodation throughout was excellent and couldn’t be faulted.
I chose this trip because it was an organised combination of golf and sightseeing with 5-star hotels and highly rated golf courses that we would most likely never otherwise have the opportunity to play.
Highlights are hard to pinpoint as the whole trip was a highlight. As a first-timer with Go Golfing, I think the trip was well-organised.
As a first-time non-golfer, the trip was great. The accommodation was excellent, the people were all very friendly, the host was excellent and looked after us well.
