In 1992, Cashmore’s big break came when he was asked to turn his attention to the design of The Dunes Golf Links on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. He has created a fine links course there which is highly rated (currently rated by Golf Digest magazine as number 25 in Australia’s Best Golf Courses). Through his company, Cashmore Golf Design, Tony has designed such wonderful courses as 13th Beach in collaboration with world-famous golfer Nick Faldo (rated number 33 in Australia) and The Henley Course at The Heritage Golf and Country Club (rated number 76).
