King Island's Ocean Dunes on the Market

Ocean Dunes on King Island has been listed for sale.
The spectacular Ocean Dunes golf course on King Island is up to sale two years after it first opened for play.

Situated on King Island midway between Tasmania and the Australian mainland, Ocean Dunes' breathtaking 18-hole layout, clubhouse and the nearby King Island Hotel are included in the sale, which has been listed by Colliers International and Comac Retail Property Group with an asking price of $16 million.

"Colliers International and Comac Retail Property Group are exclusively engaged to offer for sale the freehold land and improvements and the business of The Ocean Dunes Golf Course and King Island Hotel, King Island, Tasmania," the listing reads.

"The property provides a unique opportunity for a purchaser to acquire one of Australia’s top public courses with further development potential to truly capitalise on the increasing popularity of King Island as a golfing destination."

Since its front nine holes opened in late October 2015 before a complete unveiling in September 2016, Ocean Dunes has won critical acclaim and been ranked as the fourth-best public access course in Australia

The course - which is located on the west coast of King Island near its main township of Currie - was designed by former Kingston Heath superintendent and golf course architect Graeme Grant and offers sweeping views of Bass Strait.

Ocean Dunes currently features a small clubhouse but it comes complete with planning approval to develop 21 motel suites and 80 holiday accommodation units, providing potential for it to become an international golf destination in a similar manner to Tasmania's Barnbougle.

The listing follows the sale of nearby Cape Wickham golf course on King Island's north coast in July.

Expressions of interest in the sale of Ocean Dunes are due by 6 December at 4pm.
