There is no golf course in the world right now that is stirring up more buzz than that of Cape Wickham. November 2015, Cape Wickham welcomed the world to rave reviews and critic acclaim. In January 2016, only two short months after opening, something almost unprecedented took place in the world of golf as this course debute at #24 on Golf Digest’s “World Top-100”! Found on little-known King Island, this remote speck on the map is nestled between the southern tip of mainland Australia and northern tip of mainland Tasmania. Talk around the country is that it could quickly mature to be Australia’s best golf course. Let us present to you Cape Wickham: one of the most remote and enviable golf courses you will ever play on the planet.

ABOUT THE COURSE

Located only 45 mins south of Melbourne, by private jet, Cape Wickham, King Island’s critically acclaimed course sits majestically on the Tasman Sea.

Offering  the world’s most rare and magnificent mix of holes presenting towering coastal sea-scapes, rugged beach-front positions and sweeping inland vistas, Cape Wickham could be the most picturesque course in the world.

The layout at Cape Wickham is as diverse as it is stunning made up of three basic loops that take you on a journey to which you will never want to come back from;

  • Holes 1 – 5 place you dramatically on top of Cape Farewell headland.
  • Holes 6 – 13 has you on inland dunes at the southern most tip.
  • Holes 14 – 18 positions you beach-front along Victoria Cove.

There’s not a tree, a house or even a farm shed in sight. Modern signs of civilization are non-existent except for the coast’s sentinel – the impressive Cape Wickham Lighthouse – Australia’s tallest at 48m which is the focal point  of all northern views and adds a magical essence to this photographers paradise.

The wind will often dictate your club selection but the fairways here are particularly generous off the tee, and greens accessible from multiple angles. The routing of this course is superb and there is no weak hole which all leads to the most enviable and unforgettable golf experiences of you life.

Cape Wickham’s FIRST teebox…Welcome. If this doesn’t excite and terrify you at the same time you must not have a pulse. Dramatic panoramic views like this are standard and greet you at every hole of this masterpiece.

With many of it’s stunning  holes directly exposed to the elements and coastal Tasman breezes, It’s best to practice your wind-play and consciously put that ball a bit further back in your stance…

“We want you to know that a round of golf was one of the most memorable golf outings that the four of us have ever experienced. Not only because the course was very beautiful along Sydney’s stunning coast-line and incredibly well-manicured, but also the first class service that you and LuxGolf provided us with from beginning to the end. Prompt punctual pickup from our hotel, being chauffeured to the golf club in a beautiful Porsche, and spectacular sets of Callaway golf clubs for each of us, all accompanied with many goodies (golf balls, gloves, tees, drinks, snacks, etc.). Then, you were out there waiting for us green-side on the 18th when we finished. What an incredible service! We thank you very much and hope to play again with LuxGolf when we come back next time!

Where views like this distract all cognition, Cape Wickham’s greens seemingly disappear into the sea wreaking havoc on approach-shots  & indecision with club selections.
