The 2022 King Island Golf Tour will mark my third hosted tour to King Island. We've made some exciting changes to the itinerary based on past players feedback and I am delighted to extend this invitation to anyone who would like to play, taste and see the very best that King Island has to offer.
After meeting the friendly locals last year, and sharing a yarn or two with them about the historical significance of King Island, this tour has been made with a purpose to not only celebrate what I truly believe is Australia's best golf experience, but also to celebrate the food, the culture and the down-to-earth country hospitality of King Island.
This tour has now sold out in a record breaking 2 weeks since launch. If the inclusions below tick all your boxes I recommend you add your name to our waitlist below otherwise you can also attend the same tour a couple weeks later while spots still last. View the schedule tab above to view our second tour to King Island and the full details.

Our next stop is linked to one of these wrecks the Neva And hence the naming of disappointment bay which is anything but a disappointment one of king islands most spectacular bays.

TUE MAR 22 - DAY 3 : BUCKET LIST GOLF AT CAPE WICKHAM
We’ve been hosting groups to King Island since it first opened and have returned back many times since. When asked “What’s your favourite hole”, there is honestly no easy answer, there are just too many great holes to single one out. It’s pure links golf, as nature intended, and we won’t be surprised when this course makes its way into the top 10 in the world. Our advice for todays round is to enjoy every shot, the good and the bad, it's a magical experience that only a privileged few have yet enjoyed.
Whisky & Cheese Tasting
As you pass halfway during your round, you'll be in for a treat and a taste of the island, today we enjoy locally distilled King Island Whisky & a selection of accompanying local King Island Cheeses.

Following your breakfast, you'll transfer this morning to Ocean Dunes approx. 45 mins from Cape Wickham.
Fortune favours the brave on this course. Heroic tee shots will set you up nicely for your approach, but a miss hit here or there and you’ll be needing to restock on golf balls at the pro shop. There’s some real cracking holes which rival some of the best in the world, so take your time to soak it all in and enjoy the experience.
