Western Australia's Best Golf Courses

West Australian golf tours offer a huge variety of courses and golfing challenges. Amongst the best in the state is Joondalup Resort, a 27 holes layout, and a must play for anyone visiting Perth. The immaculate presentation of this course is mirrored in its sister course of Meadow Springs, which is located just 45 minutes from the CBD. Both of these courses are high on the list of the best in WA for playability, conditioning, and facilities.

For those who enjoy traditional links golf, The Cut and Kennedy Bay are two of the best links layouts in Australia. Both are amazing golf experiences which are made even more interesting and challenging when the sea breeze blows in from the nearby Indian Ocean. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find two links courses of such quality, and in such proximity to each other, anywhere in the world. Another course which is always highly recommended for golfers visiting Perth is Araluen Country Club. There is no such thing as a bad hole at Araluen. Even players having their worst of days will find themselves enjoying every one of the 18 fantastic holes. With dramatic changes in elevation, testing greens and stunning views around the course, Araluen is a favourite with many locals and a course that must be seen to be believed.

To take in some of the country courses around Western Australia, the southwest of the state has an abundance of great courses and tourist attractions. Dunsborough Lakes near Margaret River, Bunbury GC and Busselton GC are all located within an hour of each other and make a fantastic golf tour, especially when combined with the other attractions throughout the southwest region. The city of Albany in the state’s south provides some amazing golf at Albany GC where you can always expect four seasons in one day. Lush fairways and perfect greens greet any golfer who makes the journey to this historic town.

In contrast, Kalgoorlie Golf Course is etched into the red dust of the West Australian desert, just outside of one of the largest gold producing towns in the world. Kalgoorlie is Australia’s longest course, when played of the back tees, and looks like an oasis in the desert with the green fairways and greens popping out from an otherwise barren landscape.
Western Australian is a land full of diversity and one that provides endless options of golf and activities for all travellers visiting its shores.
