This is the Par 3 5th hole at the Tom Doak and Mike Clayton designed Barnbougle Dunes on the North Eastern corner of Tasmania. The course opened in 2004 to rave reviews and has since climbed to be rated 11th in the World in the 2014 Golf Digest rankings.
This is a great example of the work of Tom Doak and yet another of his magical modern links courses. How lucky we were to have the benefit of his views and advice over St Enodoc. Talking of which looking at the picture playing over the large bunker to the green is quite reminiscent of our Himalaya which features on the cover of Volume 1 of Tom Doak’s Confidential Guide; so was this design influenced by our 6th?
