Air Adventure Golf Tours believes that time spent in transit is time lost on the golf course, so they have designed tours that offer keen golfers a quicker transit to the greens.
Air Adventure has been an air touring company for 40 years and last year, following the increasing popularity of the Tasmanian courses, they created their first formal golf packages. “We have received such fantastic feedback from golfers over the past year” comments John Dyer, Managing Director of Air Adventure, “they love being able to travel without airport queues, rigid departure times or having to co-ordinate numerous components of the tour – when they travel with us we look after flights, transfers, tee-off times and accommodation.” Golfers can choose from 1-4 day packages that include any combination of the 4 world-class courses.
Tasmania’s golf season is typically October through to April. Last year Air Adventure took 500 golfers to play these amazing courses. This year, as word spread on the quality of the courses, it’s predicted to be more than 1,000.
Golfers board the Outback Jet at the main terminal of Melbourne’s Essendon Airport at a time that suits them, it is then either a 45minute flight to Barnbougle’s private airfield or a 35min flight to King Island Airport. When playing the Barnbougle courses, John remarks “you simply cannot beat the feeling of landing direct at the course in your private aircraft.”
Barnbougle’s overnight accommodation is at the Lost Farm Lodge, in an Ocean View Suite with stunning views of the course, the surrounding countryside and coastline. Golfers will also be able to stay on-course at Cape Wickham’s accommodation following its opening from 1 December 2016. Cape Wickham’s accommodation offers uninterrupted views of the course, beach, ocean and Australia’s tallest lighthouse.
