COURSE DETAILS

This is truly one of the world’s greatest 9 hole courses, located on the rugged west coast of King Island, on one of Australia’s idyllic golfing landforms. When the wind is blowing, experience one of the most wonderfully challenging courses in the country, demanding creativity and strategy to plot your way to the hole.

Situated in Currie, set amid coastal dunes meeting the Southern Ocean, King Island’s links have been described as resembling St Andrew’s of Scotland, with rolling fairways carved from the natural undulations. The course is a composite 18 holes, with alternate tees (17) and greens (12) on ten fairways. Comprising of 3 x Par 3, 12 x Par 4 and 3 x Par 5's over a distance of 5476 meters. With the development of new seventh tees for the men and lady golfers over the spring – summer of 2012/2013, the compact course can challenge the best of golfers when the wind decides to blow, which is frequently!

Played this course in Feb 2017, on a windy day. It is a very exposed course, which exposes bad golf! A fun & scenic course despite that, which is 9 holes played twice from different tees & a couple of extra greens added in. Hard to rate it against the other heavyweight courses on the island, but it's still a good course.

A very challenging 9 Hole course with different positioned tee offs, many elevated, for when you play 18. This is a walk only course with undulating fairways that test your fitness.

Situated in Bass Strait, the wind coming in from the West affects nearly every hole played. You must play accurately here or you will be in trouble. Stray into the the heavy rough and it's goodbye ball. You are relatively safe if in the light rough

The 5th/14th Hole only is possibly the tighest as you have to hit long if you accept the challenge to clear the water that skirts the edge of the fairway.

If your are a little bit dubious of being able to do so, you can still easily par this hole by staying to the right on the fairway with your first shot.

For the photography buff who also enjoys golf take your stills camera and/or video camera with you. You will get some breathtaking views.

The course is being brought back to its best after sometime of neglect

When the wind is really blowing this is one of the hardest courses in the country.

Spectacular coastline hugging the course, elevated tees, undulating fairways and greens in great condition make this 9 hole course a must to go around twice.

Golf balls can be consumed by thick rough and ocean if you aren't careful.

A very entertaining (and challenging) course

One of the few courses left around that is 100% left to the elements. With very few trees and no protection from the west, it can be almost un-par-able in a strong norwester. Greens have come back great with current greenkeeper and well worth the travel to experience golf in a unique setting.
