PostSubject: Golfing in Perth Australia   Mon Jan 18, 2016 11:50 am

I am planning to golf for a day with my GF in Perth, Australia in April. Any good golf course to recommend? We are thinking of not bringing our golf sets there. Can we rent golf clubs there?

Thank you.

HI Ant

Just to add in case not mentioned already, rental of clubs is expensive and the private courses there are not that cheap either... But going in April would be during such great weather and I am sure it would be a romantic experience with your girlfriend..

So wth.. Just spend the money and do it !!!! 

Have fun mate....

Hey,

I'm going to Perth also and playing on April 30th with some mates.

This is his advise when I asked him:

- Secret Harbour
- Meadow Springs (nice)
- Port Kennedy
- The Cut
- Collier Park (public course near city / enjoyable / not too hard)
- Wembley


Have fun!

Regards,
Alex

just got back and played

1. The Cut
2. Secret Harbour + Port Kennedy (15min apart)
3. El Cabarallo

Personally, my favorite was El Cabarallo. It's a very small outfit. but the owner took great pride maintaining the course. i felt they had the best green amongst the 4 course we played. Its a local course, built into the hill slopes.

the other 3 courses are magnificent in their own rights.
still, 3 links course that's not really very unique.
The Cut would prolly be my recommendation for its picture worthy scenary.

one thing i dont understand is the dismal green conditions. the fairway is great, but its common to find many marks on the green (and im not referring to pitch marks). ohterwise, golf in perth is fantaste. for that price, can hardly complain.

Have played all above except Wembley. 
Collier Park is public course, not very exciting. But it's near city so if time is an issue, you can try it.
The Cut is most challenging, but you need luck as weather is unpredictable. It's a links course, no buggy.

You may want to include Joodalup, another challenging course familiar to Singaporeans.

There is buggy on fairway for The Cut when I played there last Aug National Day weekend. 

Araluen is another nice course to play, with some signature holes and kangaroos on course, sometimes resting on the greens :-)

What can people do when kangaroos are resting on the green and refuse to move? skip hole?

Ha Ha. Guess you can chip over them or if they are in your line of putt, take a drop equidistant from the hole.

If I am worried about hurting them, I guess I will lay up short of the green and chip from thereon. Nevermind the higher score Laughing

These kangaroos are a stubborn lot. Sometimes u can hit a ball into them by accident they dun even budge. Like in pic by my oz fren recently at Vines. Me thinks they are very used to the fairways and residents there liao!
