Perth Golf Course

#1   The Cut Golf Course

The Cut Golf Club is one of Western Austrialia’s newest golf courses just outside of Perth, it is a perfect blend of new world chic and old world tradition. Opened in 2005 and has rapidly gained a reputation as a must play course, “The Cut” is an 18 hole, par 72 designed by architect James Wilcher who has crafted courses throughout Australia and Asia for professional golfers Greg Norman and Nick Faldo.

The Cut Golf Course is a typical coastal links course, set amid sprawling sand dunes with an unpredictable fresh ocean breeze to confuse and frustrate the golfer. For more than half its 18 holes you are playing along the coast and have spectacular views of the sea. The course features emerald fairways over an undulating landscape that you would expect when playing a dune course, ever changing lies and plenty of sand and rough vegetation to trap the wary travelers.

 

#2   Joondalup Country Club

Designed by the internationally renowned Robert Trent Jones Jr, Joondalup Resort golf course presents a tough, uncompromising lay-out, featuring great variation in setting and style.

The spectacular golf course in Perth sweeps across dense bush land, cuts through steep limestone quarries and skirts picturesque lakes, to present surprises and challenges at almost every turn. One minute you are playing an approach shot beneath a 30-metre limestone cliff, the next you are adapting to the fresh ocean breeze on an undulating links style fairway.

 

#3   Araluen Golf Course

Araluen Golf Resort is located 40 kms southeast of Perth City in the uniquely beautiful hills of Roleystone. Set in what has often been described as an “enchanted valley”,  Araluen Golf Resort boasts a world class golf course surrounded by natural Australian bushland inhabited by abundant native wildlife and boasting breathtaking views of Perth City and beyond.

When you play a golf course, a great way of testing the quality of the course is by how many holes you remember. At Araluen you are guaranteed many wonderful memories. The signature Par 3 16th, the amazing Par 4 9th, are two that stand out immediately, but every hole has its own special feel about it. The final three holes are considered three of the best finishing holes played anywhere.

#5   The Links Kennedy Bay

#6  Secret Harbour Golf Links

Crafted into the spectacular ocean side landscape, this unique course boasts 18 superbly designed holes.  Designed by the renowned golf architect and player, Graham Marsh, Secret Harbour Golf Links reflects the style of the traditional Scottish courses such as Muirfield, Turnberry and St. Andrews.

Experience a traditional Scottish links course with small pot bunkers and rolling fairways situated amid natural sand dunes and beautiful views of the Indian Ocean. Each hole presents several tee options depending on wind conditions and the player’s ability.

 

#7 Meadow Springs Golf and Country Club

 

Offering “golf as nature intended” and designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr, this course presents a highly regarded test for players of all levels, but is also renowned for its playability.

Measuring 6189 metres from the blue tees, the golf course promises a unique experience through open bush land, the layout dictated by the natural features of the land. Towering 200 year old Tuart trees line generous fairways and subtly rolling greens. Few holes run parallel enhancing the sensation of being alone in the wilderness. Its excellent drainage makes Meadow Springs one of the best all-weather courses in the country.

#8 Royal Perth Golf Club

 

Royal Perth is a remarkable golf club. It’s a proper full-length 18 hole golf course, playing to a length of over 6,000 metres and a par of 72. What’s remarkable about the course is that it occupies just 74 acres, barely enough land for nine holes these days.

While there aren’t a stack of great holes at Royal Perth, this is really solid golf and a test that good players in particular will thoroughly enjoy. The best holes are probably shorter par fours like the 4th and 8th, and the two par threes added by consulting designer Terry Gale, a 50-year member of the club. The rest are solid without being spectacular.
