Hobart’s Golf Development – A Closer Look at 7 Mile Beach and Arm End Golf Clubs

The addition of two brand-new golf courses in stunning locations near Tasmania’s capital of Hobart is a sure way to highlight The Island State’s booming golf industry.

With heavyweights in the north such as Barnbougle’s Lost Farm and The Dunes courses, or King Islands’ Ocean Dunes and Cape Wickham, The Island’s southern golf courses have long escaped mainlanders’ golf pilgrimages to the state. This is set to change with the addition of two new golf courses: 7 Mile Beach Golf Course and Arm End’s public golf course.

The two new links golf courses will substantially boost golf tourism to Hobart, with Tasmania Golf Club and Royal Hobart Golf Club being the only two long-standing golf courses of national acclaim. The addition of two more courses will make Hobart a great five or seven-night destination.


“For golfers wanting to visit Hobart, the two new courses will open up the city. The compulsory plane trip or Spirit of Tasmania Ferry will be more worthwhile for mainlanders and international guests wanting a longer stay. Hobart has some great attractions and for visitors to eat their way around the best restaurants, play some great golf and visit abundant attractions, the new golf developments open up myriad opportunities.” Glenn Hedley, Founder.

Popular restaurants in town include the Argentinian Frank Restaurant, DANA Eating House, Pooley Winery, the Ball & Chain steak place, Mures Seafood, modern Aloft, Tia Ama’s Italian, Templo and Peacock & Jones. With popular attractions like MONA Museum, Mt Wellington, Cascades Brewery, Bruny Island day trips, Port Arthur day trips, South Arm and myriad cultural festivals, Hobart is a buzzing town and by far the prettiest capital city in Australia. Those of us that don’t play golf will enjoy Hobart and its various attractions while the golfers enjoy Tasmania Golf Club, Royal Hobart, 7 Mile Beach and Arm End golf course. Our Tasmania Golf Cruise is running in 2023 playing the first two golf courses, and future departures will include the new 7 Mile Beach and Arm End golf courses.
