King Island Golf Travel Made Easy
King Island, located in Bass Strait between Victoria and Mainland Tasmania, with a population of around 1500 people has become the focus of devoted travelling golfers from Australia and around the World.
Cape Wickham Golf Links, on the northern tip of King Island (designed by Mike DeVries and Darius Oliver) is not only laid out across some of the best links land available outside of the UK and Ireland but is located on what is surely some of the most visually spectacular golf land in the world! You may have heard it referenced to as ‘Australia’s answer to Pebble Beach’ and the comparisons are understandable (though Cape Wickham arguably has more high-quality holes than Pebble). It is currently Ranked #3 in Australia and #24 in the World.
And as if one amazing course on the island wasn’t enough, Graeme Grant’s Ocean Dunes, situated just a few minutes outside of the island’s main town of Currie midway down the west coast, opened a year or so later, but has also received rave reviews from critics and travelling golfers alike. Entering the Australian rankings for the first time in 2018 and debuting at #10 probably tells you all you need to know. Also set on some spectacular links land, the holes have been magnificently designed to flow seamlessly across the ocean’s edges before turning inland, travelling up and down through the natural dunes in a manner that would have you assume that this is how Mother Nature had always intended things to be!
Many will say there is no use having the subjective debate over which of the two courses is better, however the reality is that most passionate golfers won’t be able to resist the topic. Nevertheless, we are confident there will be no clear winner on the matter – which is a testament to how good both of these golf courses are!
