Six Australian golf courses feature in Golf.com’s 2013 list of the Top-100 golf courses in the world.
Golf.com have released their biennial list of the top-100 golf courses in the world with Pine Valley once again taking out top honours. Cypress Point and Augusta National occupy positions two and three with St.Andrews Old course and Shinnecock Hills rounding out the top 5.
Six Australian golf courses are on the list including the Tasmanian golf course duo – Barnbougle Dunes and Barnbougle Lost Farm. Both courses improved their rankings compared to the 2011 list which now sees Barnbougle Dunes ranked at 34th in the world and Lost Farm ranked at 72nd.
With a number of highly anticipated courses entering the biennial ratings for the first time in 2013, Richard Sattler owner Barnbougle was very pleased with the result.
“The international golf community has seen a number of highly anticipated courses open since the last US Golf Magazine ratings were released in 2011.” Sattler said.
“For the Lost Farm and the Dunes to not only hold their position in the ratings, but to improve them so significantly – from #82 to #72 (Lost Farm) and #41 to #34 (Dunes) – is incredible and indicative of how the special nature of Tasmania and Barnbougle is being received on a global scale.”
Royal Melbourne West maintained its number 13 ranking and as the most highly ranked Australian golf course.
Other Australian courses to make the slit were Kingston Heath at 28, New South Wales at 41, Royal Melbourne East at 94 and Royal Adelaide at 99.
