King Island Golf Tour with Jim Tucker

25-27 September & 17-19 October 2021

Fully Escorted Tour

A FIRST…Brisbane to King Island direct. This tour has been specially created to take out all the hassle of changing aircraft in Melbourne to reach the stunning courses of Tasmania’s King Island. Our wonderful VIP charter jet has room for 70 passengers but is configured for just 24 people. That equals comfort, fun, being spoilt and no luggage restrictions. This tour sold out in May, so be quick.

About Ocean Dunes Golf Course (Play Once)

Ranked 4th On The List Of Australia’s Best Public Courses. On the majestic west coast of King Island, facing the Great Southern Ocean, Ocean Dunes Golf Course is already a ‘must visit’ destination for travelling golfers wishing to test themselves among the beautiful rolling dunes of King Island.

About Cape Wickham Golf Course (Play Twice)

This spectacular new golf course offers an unsurpassable golfing experience enhanced by the raw natural beauty of King Island. Immerse yourself into a rare and dramatic mix of coastal holes cleverly routed around Cape Wickham Lighthouse on the northern tip of King Island.

Construction of the course was completed in late 2015, under the watchful eye of co-designers Mike DeVries (USA) and Darius Oliver (AUS), and quickly gained international recognition in the world rankings. Since then avid golfers have continued to travel from all around the globe to visit King Island in order to experience Cape Wickham Links for themselves.

Every hole on the course has an ocean view, which is extremely rare, and no 2 holes are the same. The undulating course normally plays firm, allowing the imagination to go wild with limitless shot-making possibilities. Tees, Fairways and Greens are all seeded with fescue grass, following in the footsteps of the old traditional links courses in Scotland and Ireland.

About your guide, Jim Tucker

A career in journalism spanning more than 40 years has given Jim a ringside seat to some of the great events in world sports. A trip to the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh took a deviation by train and taxi to see the last two holes of Greg Norman’s breakthrough British Open victory at Turnberry in 1986. Part of Norman’s final divot is still wrapped in a Turnberry golf towel in a box. In the garage. Always seeing the broader possibilities of touring life led to Jim leading two supporters’ tours to Rugby World Cups in France and Japan as well as another following the 1997 Ashes tour of England. He has paired up with Alliance Airlines to create fun and personally-styled golf tours to some of Australia’s best golfing locations. Hamilton Island, Bonville, King Island, Barnbougle, the Hunter Valley and Adelaide-McLaren Vale are just some of the destinations sampled or on the radar.
