There is a big argument between the developer of Australia's most famous golf course Barnbougle Dunes in northern Tasmania. Richard Sattler, the farmer who owns the land where Barnbougle Dunes sits as well as another section large enough for another eighteen holed golf course.

Links Golf Tasmania is suing Mr Sattler in the Federal Court.

Mr Lennon opened the Barnbougle Dunes golf course in 2004 and is soon going to testify.

Top QC from Melbourne Joseph Santamaria says Mr Sattler owed the company Links Golf Tasmania a fiduciary obligation for seven years to 2009. However, there exists no document where he commits himself in respect of the new course.

Mr Sattler set up a competitive business using the information, contacts and intellectual propery gained in this relationship. This argument is continuing. While Barnbougle Dunes is famous and the sandy coastal property is promoted as a perfect links course you can enjoy golf in a much more protected situation in the picturesque Kingston course not far from Middleton on the Channel Highway. Travelling from the airport you will drive straight past. Friendly golfers will welcome you with true Tasmanian charm when you come to play or enjoy a beer in the bar.
