The Halliday Barnbougle Cup is returning for the ultimate weekend of golf, food and fine wine.

Mark your diaries! The annual Halliday Barnbougle Cup is returning for the third consecutive year, from June 2–4.

If you've dreamed of teeing off at The Dunes, love great food and fine wine, we have the perfect weekend getaway for you.

Make your way to Barnbougle in north-east Tasmania (which is just a 60-minute drive from Launceston) in time for Friday afternoon. On arrival, check in to the Lost Farm Lodge – where you'll wake up overlooking the stunning coastline and hinterland. 

Choose from a single queen suite – ideal for couples – complete with one queen bed, two televisions, and a large walk-in shower. For larger groups, the double queen suite offers two queen beds and a sliding door to create two individual rooms. Each room has an ocean view – looking out across Anderson Bay – or view of the Lost Farm Golf Course.

The official 19th hole is the Lost Farm Sports Bar, so what better way to spend your Friday night than scoping out the competition while drinking some of the finest Australian wines paired with a gourmet barbecue.

Your wake up time will be bright and early on Saturday morning, as you tee off for your first day of golf. Warm up on the practice facilities before venturing out onto The Dunes Golf Course, a breathtaking example of a traditional Links golf course. The Dunes is unlike any other course in the country, it rewards strategic thinking, and has been ranked number two in Australia and number 11 in the world.

The Lost Farm Golf Course features 20 holes dotted along the coast and coastal dunes. Lost Farm offers a challenge to golfers of all levels, and has been ranked as number two in Australian public courses and number 23 in the world. 

Following an afternoon of driving, putting and chipping, wind down with a whisky tasting from Tasmania's own, Lark Distillery. Lark – founded by distiller and pioneer of Australia's spirit scene, Bill Lark – has been making award-winning whisky for over 30 years.

Lost Farm is perched atop a costal sand dune, enjoy a four-course dinner with more than 10 carefully curated Halliday-rated wines and expert insights from your host, Halliday Tasting Team member, Dave Brookes.

On Sunday morning we'll tee off at The Dunes for a final morning of golf. Non-golfers can head to the spa for some tranquility, or take a self-guided trip to the local town of Bridport. Lunch will be held at The Dunes Clubhouse, where we'll crown the winner of the Halliday Barnbougle Cup for 2023. 

After lunch, it's time to stay our goodbyes, begin the journey home or continue to explore Tasmania.

For those staying on, there are a smattering of wineries nearby to visit. Stop off at sparkling giants, Pipers Brook and Jansz Tasmania, Dalrymple is across the road, and Delamere, Brook Eden, Clover Hill, and Bay of Fires are just a short drive away.
