Golf in West Australia's South West - A Must Do!

Golf in the South West

Often overlooked by international and interstate visitors are the fabulous courses on offer in the South West region of Western Australia. Located less than an hour from the Perth CBD, the courses on offer in this region are some of the top ranked courses in Australia.

The Cut, Meadow Springs and Kennedy Bay provide unbelievable golfing experiences and are all within 15 minutes of one another. The Cut has ranked in the top 10 courses in Australia and provides some of the most challenging and scenic holes you will ever play. The links style course winds its way along the coast lining the Indian Ocean with many of the blind tee shots daunting to first time players.

Meadow Springs is the sister course to the world renowned Joondalup resort and is equal in beauty and challenge. The open fairways allow for aggression from the tee but you will require accurate approach shots to get close to the pin on the undulating greens. 

Kennedy Bay is a classic links course, carved through the sand dunes along the coast of Port Kennedy. With over 120 Scottish style pot bunkers and the prevailing breeze getting up after midday, this course provides a stern test of golf.

Further south is more remarkable golf with Capel and Dunsborough Links the standouts. In a popular tourist and wine growing region, these courses are accessible year round and guarantee a great golfing experience.
