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

This event has been cancelled for 2024. Sign up to our newsletter for news on the next Halliday Barnbougle Cup and exciting new golf trips. 

If you've promised yourself that in 2024 you're going to hit the links more often, then look no further, we're bringing you the fourth Halliday Barnbougle Cup. Join us in Tasmania – from May 31 to June 2 – for a weekend you won't forget.

So what can you expect? 

Spend the weekend playing golf on the world-renowned Barnbougle courses – Lost Farm and The Dunes – you'll drink fine wine and eat exceptional Tasmanian produce.

On Friday afternoon, you'll make your way to Barnbougle in north-east Tasmania (which is just a 60-minute drive from Launceston), where you'll check in at the Lost Farm Lodge and wake up overlooking ocean views of the stunning Anderson Bay or the Lost Farm Golf Course.

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.

On Friday evening you'll enjoy a welcome barbecue, paired with outstanding wines, where you can size up the competition hitting the course with you.

It's a bright and early call time for breakfast on Saturday, with golfers teeing off from Lost Farm shortly after. Barnbougle's Lost Farm consists of 20 holes dotted along the coast and dunes, it opened in 2010 and has since been ranked number three in Australian public courses and number 23 in the world.

After a day of driving, putting and chipping, you'll be treated to a spectacular four-course dining experience at Lost Farm Restaurant. The four-course dinner will be expertly matched to more than 10 wines, and you'll be hosted by the Halliday Tasting Team's formidable Jane Faulkner.

If you're not golfing over the weekend, there's still plenty to do at Barnbougle. Head to the resort's Spa 180 for a massage or facial (or both!), check out the town of Bridport, or spend an afternoon tasting wines at some of Tassie's top producers.

The DunesSpend the weekend playing golf on the iconic Lost Farm and The Dunes courses.

On Sunday you'll tee off at The Dunes for a final morning of golf. The Dunes is Barnbougle's original course, it's a perfect example of traditional links golf, but note, golf at The Dunes requires strategic thinking – so be careful not to get distracted by the breathtaking views.

The Dunes has won a slew of awards since it opened in 2004, it's the number two golf course in Australia and number 34 in the world.

After 18 holes at The Dunes, we'll meet you at The Dunes Clubhouse for lunch, where we'll crown the 2024 winner of the Halliday Barnbougle Cup, before saying our goodbyes (until 2025!).

See you in the southern state!
