Sheffield Golf Course, also known as Badger Heights, is a course with a view in North West Tasmania. The nine-hole course is located at the foot of the Badger Range, near Sheffield, a 40-minute drive south of Devonport (30 km) and a one-hour drive west of Launceston (93 km).
Sheffield Golf Course is undulating and heavily wooded, with stands of graceful eucalypts fringing the greens. You can play a challenging round of golf here; the 210 metre, par three sixth with a dam at the back of the green is one of the more demanding holes. Club hire is available for men, women and juniors, and because the course favours left-handed players, some left handed sets are also available for hire. As a green fee guest, you can join members in the regular competitions and relax in the fully-licensed clubhouse after your round.
This area is dominated by the craggy peak of Mount Roland (1,234 metres) and the course has outstanding views of the mountain and across the Kentish Plains. There are a number of well-marked bushwalks here, and walking tracks to the summit reward you with stunning views.
Holes: 9, Par: 68, Length: 5,041 metres, Australian Course Rating: 65.
