Australasian Golf Museum Nov27

Australasian Golf Museum...

The Australasian Golf Museum, located in Bothwell village, tells the story of how golf evolved from a crude game played by a handful of villages on Scotland’s east coast, to now being a truly international game, and Australia’s most popular participation sport. The museum illustrates why the early settlers in historic Bothwell became Australia’s first golfing community, with the nearby Ratho Golf Links recognised as Australia’s oldest golf course, and the township having as many as 5 different golf courses. The evolution of the game is explained through the different eras, as defined by the changing golf ball; from Feathery (1400s to mid 1800s) to Gutta-percha (1850s to 1900) to Haskell (turn of the century to World War II) and the modern balls. Many of Tasmania’s champion golfers are featured, from Australia’s first born champions, the Pearce Brothers, to Lucy Arthur, Len Nettlefold, Elvie Whitesides, the Toogoods and the Goggins....

Kingsbarns Distillery...

The proposed Kingsbarns Distillery is situated in the Kingdom of Fife (2011 European Golf Destination of the Year) not far from St Andrews, the home of golf, on the beautiful Cambo Estate overlooking Kingsbarns Golf Links,where the distillery’s Founding Directors Doug Clement and Greg Ramsay, used to caddy together. Our historic and charming, East Newhall Farm Steading consists of a doocot, octagonal horse mill, stables, byres and farmhouse. The farm provides us with the ideal venue to take whisky-making back to its artisan “barley to bottle” origins and reconnect it with the land, back to a time (16th to late 18th century) when farmers themselves would save their spare crops that would otherwise spoil and distill them in small batches in their byres. We have recently been awarded a grant from the Scottish Government through their Food Processing, Marketing & Cooperation Scheme of £557,942. This is a capital grant which provides assistance towards the construction of buildings and purchase of plant and equipment. Securing this grant has attracted an offer we couldn’t refuse, to sell the project and deliver a healthy return to our investors. We are beginning building works in 2014 and hopefully distilling later the same year....

Craigie Knowe Vineyard...

The Craigie Knowe vineyard on the east coast of Tasmania – at Cranbrook, in between Swansea and Bicheno – is a magnificant property.  Our client bought the property in 2009 and has since requested we increase the vineyard production in partnership with a local winemaker, and convert the old homestead into a gorgeous luxury guesthouse with 3 spectacular rooms.
