Joondalup Country Club, Western Australia

Joondalup Country Club is the best public access golf club in Western Australia, and is regarded as one of the great golfing challenges, not only in Australia but also internationally.

Joondalup is simply the “Best of the Best in the West”! With 27 championship golf holes designed by internationally renowned designer, Robert Trent Jones; a modern & contemporary Clubhouse, Golf Shop, and excellent practice facilities, Joondalup Country Club has it all for the keen golfer. Joondalup Country Club is usually the first stop for golfers visiting Perth, in particular golfers from South East Asian countries such as Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand where golf is an elite sport, and much more expensive than the golf courses of Western Australia.

In addition to the magnificent golf facilities, Joondalup Country Club has its own 5-star resort adjacent to the golf course. Nestled in natural bushland just 30 minutes north of Perth CBD and five minutes from WA’s Sunset Coast, the Resort offers an oasis of relaxation, comfort and state of the art facilities, including a convention and wedding reception area.

The Golf

Joondalup Country Club
Few golf courses anywhere in the world offer the dramatic contrasts, the scenic beauty and the sheer golfing challenge of Joondalup Country Club. Designed by the internationally renowned Robert Trent Jones Jr, this Perth golf course presents a tough, uncompromising lay-out, featuring great variation in setting and style.

Joondalup comprises 27-holes of pure golfing exhilaration with three distinct and unique nines.

The Quarry nine is the most spectacular and stunning of the three courses … 6 of the holes are designed around abandoned limestone quarries that both thrill and intimidate the very best of golfers. Fortunately, four series of tee boxes allow the golfers of varying standard to leave their egos on the first tee and enjoy the challenges without feeling overwhelmed.

The Dunes nine has some spectacular holes also through the limestone quarries, with the 3rd, 4th and 5th holes some of the most interesting, requiring great strategy to gain par or better! Major elevation changes throughout the nine make fora rollicking and fun-filled round and great post-golf conversations in the Clubhouse.

The Lakes nine offering is slightly less dramatic than its siblings, but certainly no less enjoyable with more quarry holes, a couple of short par 4’s and two spectacular par 3’s. The closing hole, a downhill Par 5, 530 metres from the tips provides an amazing risk / reward hole to settle the side-bets and bring out the best in the competent golfer. A good drive sets you up for a shot at the green with your second … however you have to carry your ball over a lake that guards the green on two sides and deep bunkers on the other two sides! A spectacular finishing hole on what is a memorable golfing experience whether you played well or otherwise.
