Golf Australia Express : GA Express 259
OceanAw aits WORDS & PHOTOGRAPHY BY BRENDAN JAMES OCEAN DUNES King Island, Tasmania W HEN the curtain was pulled back on two world class links on Tasmania’s King Island two years ago, they promised great theatre and a lot of fun. Neither Cape Wickham nor its southern neighbour Ocean Dunes has disappointed on both counts and, not surprisingly, the pair has been added to golfing bucket lists around the planet. Ocean Dunes – ranked by Golf Australia as the No.4 Public Access Course in the nation earlier this year – covers idyllic golfing terrain with fairways that weave over and between sand dunes, and features several holes on its two- kilometre stretch of ocean frontage. Located just north of Currie and less than five minutes’ drive from the airport, Ocean Dunes is the brainchild and passion of long- time course superintendent and course designer Graeme Grant. Ocean Dunes opens with a 500-metre par-5 that rises over the crest of a hill and then turns at right angles behind a massive bunker, deep swale and tall dunes to plunge down to the green set against the edge of the rocky shoreline.
