I used to think that my final round of golf in my life someday should best be played at my favorite golf course, the National Golf Links of America. Honestly, I'm not so sure about that anymore, I could truly celebrate the game of golf at KIG & BC, then leave my golf bag/clubs & shoes by the honor box for hopefully a junior golf to start their magical foray & then dine on a truly fabulous grass fed steak at the club's simple & inviting clubhouse. A very special place..."

KING ISLAND GOLF OPEN - Oct 31, Nov 1-2 2020
This is truly one of the world’s greatest 9 hole courses, located on the rugged west coast of King Island, on one of Australia’s idyllic golfing landforms. When the wind is blowing, experience one of the most wonderfully challenging courses in the country, demanding creativity and strategy to plot your way to the hole.
Situated in Currie, set amid coastal dunes meeting the Southern Ocean, King Island’s links have been described as resembling St Andrew’s of Scotland, with rolling fairways carved from the natural undulations.
The course is a composite 18 holes, with alternate tees (17) and greens (12) on ten fairways. Comprising of 3 x Par 3, 12 x Par 4 and 3 x Par 5's over a distance of 5476metres.
The compact course can challenge the best of golfers when the wind decides to blow, which is frequently! View course layout.
The course hugs a spectacular coastline, the bump’n’run of undulating fairways, endless ocean vistas, a clever routing and greens in great condition, make this one of golf’s great venues. See Gary Lisbon’s fabulous photofiles here .
