“Amazing Place”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Wow, what a place. I booked a small 2 bed cottage for my wife and I and my parents. The accommodation is nothing fancy but simple, clean and just perfect for me. That is all I ask for in a room. A great little balcony to just sit back and let the star of the show shine. The golf course and the setting is stunning. My golf was terrible but what an amazing course it is, so interesting, undulating and challenging and if it all goes bad just admire the beauty. We had dinner at the Dunes restaurant on the first night and it was perfectly fine. Completely met my expectations and again a stunning setting, the bar is nice a cosy and the fire place is beautiful. The second night we ate at the Lost Farm restaurant and wow what a view. The food was equally good. My wife had the best pork belly ever. Hats off to the everyone involved. I will return to play the Lost Farm. Just have to work on the golf a bit now.

We had 3 great days at Barnbougle. Both golf courses are fantastic links experiences. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was excellent and the accommodation was basic but OK. A single shared bathroom in a 2 bedroom cottage is my only criticism

We knew the course would be great being ranked Number 1 public course in Australia but the stay in the villas just made this a magical golfing experience.
Every villa overlooks the practice putting green and driving range and you can sleep with the curtains open such is the privacy.
Wonderfully appointed two bedroom villas just a short stroll from the clubhouse.
20 of us were planning for over a year on this visit and the two courses plus the villas did not disappoint. A great golfing destination.

We played both the Dunes and Lost Farm over two Days. Both where great but I personally favor the lost farm.
Both places served great food for a golfer both for breakfast and lunch as well as for dinner. Very good to stay at the course.
The cottage was Clean, not so fancy (eg plastic floors instead of tiles int eh bathroom etc) but just what a tired golfer needs ie a good bed.

Room Tip: The Lost Farm is a bigger Place, more like a normal hotel incl a SPA so if I would go back I'd s...

After a Christmas/new Year holiday with friends near Freycinet we decided to take the leisurely route back to Devonport to catch the Spirit of Tasmania. Barnbougle Dunes was a must see on this holiday as we wanted to drive via the NE of Tassie to experience this region that get's little attention on holiday brochures. We chose Barnbougle Dunes because of it's location - where Bass Strait blows into seemingly vast stretches of isolated coastal dunes and merge into paddocks of farming land where livestock outnumber tourists. Our cabin at Barnbougle was basic but clean and had all the essentials for our 1 night stay. As ex - golfers ( thanks to injuries) we still felt a thrill walking out to the golf range and later watch the active golfers return to the bar with wide smiles , ruddiness in wind blown checks and Bass Strait tossled hair reliving magic moments on the uniquely Tasmanian golf course. We dined at the Dunes restaurant on site and thoroughly enjoyed both friendly service , quality food and stunning coastal location. Definitely recommend this place to golfers and non -golfers alike. Who can tire from exploring or gently wandering the vast peaceful expanse of the NE Tasmanian çoast where other tourists are only spotted making their way around the staggeringly spectacular golf course.

We stayed in one of the two bedroom cottages that are just near the practice green and driving range. The cottage was well appointed, but in winter we needed an electric blanket.

We didn't use the spare bedroom, but there was no air conditioning there at all.

The staff were very friendly. We had a very nice dinner and lunch at the club house. Good value and quality.

The golf course is simply amazing. It should be on every Golfer's "Bucket List". It is a credit to the Owner's vision.

Room Tip: Lost Farm (next door - same Owner) is a little more livelier probably.

Played here on Saturday.....wow.....I play off a 4 handicap and rate this place amongst Royal Melbourne/ Victoria. We stayed in the cottages and if anyone has a bad word then they can't be satisfied. You are there to play golf....the cottages are 2 bedroom with a large bathroom. The only advice is if you grab a box of cereal in at Bridport for breakfasts...be warned there are no bowls in the room. Once again the staff are a miserable bunch and struggle to raise a smile....not sure why they are so sad. Jody is the go to person.....very helpful amongst a bunch of non helpful peeps. Plan a golfing trip and get down there.
