AUSTRALIA #9 – WORLD #40
Ranked as the #2 public golf course in Australia , Lost Farm is Barnbougle’s second instalment, located just a short pitching wedge across the river from The Dunes.

Lost Farm features 20 holes, all of which are playable during any given round and boast beautiful views along the coast, and into the Tasmanian hinterland along the Forester River. The course’s distinctive undulating character, Wide-open fairways and exquisite hole layouts provide a tough, yet fair challenge for golfers of all abilities.
In addition to some of the best golf in the world, Lost Farm offers world class dining and accommodation facilities. The restaurant at Lost Farm dishes up a delicious array of Tasmanian produce, from succulent seafood to locally grown beef. Lost Farm is a truly breathtaking golf course that complements the surrounding landscape and is a genuine treasure of Tasmanian golfing.
