Queenstown Golf Club
The Queenstown Golf Club is a nine-hole course in far west Tasmania. Queenstown is a four-hour drive west of Hobart (256 kilometres/159 miles), and 40 minutes east of Strahan (40 kilometres/25 miles). The Queenstown Golf Club offers a tight course with five, par four holes and four par threes. Due to the wet west coast climate, this course—which is surrounded by mountains—can be heavy in winter but summer conditions are excellent. As a green fee guest you can join members in regular competitions including a Wednesday ladies' competition and mixed competition each Saturday and Sunday. After your round, you can get to know the locals over a drink in the club bar. Queenstown is a copper and gold mining town, settled by prospectors in the 1880s. You can take a tour of the Mt Lyell Copper Mine or visit the Miners’ Siding to discover the town’s mining heritage. Test your skills at other west coast golf courses including the Strahan Golf Club and Rosebery Golf Course, or for a change of scenery, try a four-wheel drive tour or fish for trout in nearby Lake Burbury. Holes: 9, Par: 64, Length: 4,512 metres, Australian Course Rating: 63.5.
