The world-class, Arm End public golf course will provide ongoing funding for our environmental regeneration and protection programs. The golf course will also provide employment opportunities for the local and wider Tasmanian communities.
Arm End will have the only public 18 hole golf course in Southern Tasmania, perfectly bookending the state with the top-ranking Barnbougle and Lost Farm courses in the north.
Golf tourism to Tasmania is increasing with visitors from around the state, the nation and the world bringing economic growth. With a world-class facility on its doorstep, benefits will flow to the local Peninsula community and on to Hobart and the surrounding regions.
Whilst other courses have signature holes, the awesome landscape of Arm End means golfers at every hole could risk their game whilst losing themselves in the spectacular views!
The layout is being developed by Australian-based course and landscape architects Crafter + Mogford and they’ve identified this as unlike any other site in the country. Their key responsibility in master planning this iconic site is the integration of public access and world-class public access golf.

The approved plan sees the successful integration of a number of considerations including; cultural, environment and key desired recreational uses in what we believe is a well-balanced outcome for all current and future users. Amenities and outcomes include; an 18-hole world-class golf course, several kilometres of track network, provision of public open space at Shelly’s Beach, picnic and lookout points across the site, fishing and bird-watching locations, extensive indigenous revegetation and habitat creation, removal and control of weed species, stabilisation of areas of erosion and preservation of cultural heritage sites such as Gellibrand’s Vault….. On every visit we remain in awe of the site’s potential.

There is a clear and significant opportunity in the case of this Project to set a new standard of sustainable golf development in Australia.
GEO, August 2021
Globally golf has an incredible opportunity to play a meaningful part towards the UN’s Agenda for Sustainable Development, able to contribute across all 17 goals.
the international not-for-profit Golf Environment Organization (GEO) was formed to inspire, support and accelerate sustainable golf, rewarding credible action to strengthen and promote golf’s environmental and social value.
Arm End is creating a regenerative, world class public access golf course that demonstrates high standards of environmental management for the course and the entire site which is now registered with GEO to begin certification to the highest level.
