Perfectly situated just 15 minutes northeast of the city of Hobart, and bordered on three sides by water, the Tasmania Golf Club is one of the most picturesque golf courses in Australia. The layout was designed by Al Howard in 1971 and is best known for its famous par five 3rd hole, which horseshoes Barilla Bluff and drops steeply from tee to green.
The remaining holes are less spectacular, and there are some rudimentary design elements on display across the property, but this is a nice members course and a pleasant place for visitors to Tasmania to play after Barnbougle Dunes and Lost Farm.
The club was originally founded in 1925 as the Lindisfarne Golf Club, and moved to its current site after the old course was compulsorily acquired by the state government in the 1960s. Tasmania Golf Club has hosted many significant events including the Australian Amateur Championship and the Tasmanian Open on numerous occasions. A number of the leading state amateur and professional golfers have hailed from the Tasmania Golf Club, among them Lindy Goggin (three times Ladies Australian Amateur) and her son, PGA Tour star Mathew Goggin.
