Air Adventure Australia today announced a new touring option taking in both courses at Barnbougle on mainland Tasmania, and the brand new Cape Wickham on King Island. So if you are looking for a golfing holiday that offers far more than just the game, this is the way to go!
Guests board the Outback Jet at the Sharp Airlines terminal of Melbourne’s Essendon Airport at 9am and in just 45 minutes they are landing beside the fairways on Barnbougle’s private airfield and preparing for their first round at Barnbougles’ Lost Farm.
John Dyer, Managing Director of Air Adventure says “To be able to link the golfing paradise of Barnbougle with potentially the worlds most remote golf course, Cape Wickham, makes this a golf tour like no other. You cannot beat the feeling of landing direct at the course in your private aircraft, let alone the convenience and efficient use of your time.”
“We look after every element from tee off times, accommodation, transfers and flights. There is simply no better way to play these incredible courses.”
Accommodation for the 2 nights is at the Lost Farm Lodge, in an Ocean View Suite with stunning views of the course, the surrounding countryside and coastline. Between rounds there is ample opportunity to experience the Club House, the Lodge Restaurant and Sports Bar, or indulge in a relaxing spa treatment.
Teeing off on Day 2, guests enjoy the 18 holes of nearby Barnbougle Dunes. Rated the No 2 golf Course in Australia by Australian Golf Magazine (2013), and the number 11 in the world by US Golf Digest, the Dunes sits amongst a spectacular backdrop on Tasmania’s north east coast. Opportunities abound for guests to improve their game with teaching professionals available for extra tuition.
Day 3 commences with a short 45 minute flight to King Island for 18 holes at the brand new Cape Wickham Course (opens November 2015). Be one of the first to play this spectacular new course that is set to debut highly on the world rankings. Located on the rugged north coast of King Island, this is true links golf, demanding creativity and strategy. Then visit the famous King Island Dairy where you will have the opportunity to purchase their world-class produce at ‘cellar door’ prices, before departing for your short flight home.
The return trip is completed just 30 minutes after departing King Island, with guest arriving at the Sharp terminal at Essendon Airport approximately 6.30pm.
