A blend of fescue and bent grasses, the course flourishes in the coastal environment. Fairways are wide, wider than most golfers will have experienced on traditional courses. The greens are lively; rolling with the natural undulation of the dunes and with the 4th hole boasting the largest bunker in the southern hemisphere, this course is designed to challenge.
The greens at Barnbougle Dunes run at speeds closely resembling the original greens of the great British links. Contoured in tune with the tumbling land around them, the greens feature a combination of broad slopes and ridges through the playing lines.
