Golf in Perth, WA | Travel to Western Australia
Take advantage of International Golf Specialists (IGS) home location in the amazing city of Perth and have your golfing holiday hosted by Managing Director Gary Allomes and the experienced staff of IGS. Perth offers incredible golf but the activities available away from the golf course also mean every day of your time spent in Western Australia will bring a unique and exciting experience. For larger groups, IGS arrange transportation by coach to some of the most popular destinations around the city. There are options of full and half day tours throughout the Perth area taking in attractions such as Fremantle Prison, Rottnest Island, Elizabeth Quay, Hillary’s Boat Harbour and Kings Park. You may also like to try a ‘hop on, hop off’ bus tour through the Swan Valley and experience some of Australia’s best wineries and breweries. This is a great way to spend an afternoon without the hassle of having to drive yourself between locations. Access to these tours is particularly easy for those of our guests who choose to play golf and stay at The Novotel Vines Resort – also located in the Swan Valley. Cruises along the beautiful Swan River, stopping for lunch or dinner at a riverside restaurant is also high on the list of many visitors to Perth shores and are a great and unique way for a group to dine out. IGS can cater for groups of all sizes and, as golfing tragics, can arrange intra group golf competitions to keep your golf tour really interesting!
The Best Time To Visit Perth
Perth’s golf courses are playable for 365 days of the year. The climate sees the best golfing weather between the months of October through to May but even the winter months mean most days on the course can be enjoyed without the need for any heavy clothing for protection from the elements. The summer months bring long, hot days, with a cooling ocean breeze hitting land in the early afternoon. Summer golf is best played in the mornings to beat the hottest part of the day, giving you the rest of the day to enjoy all the other attractions that Perth has to offer. The autumn and winter periods bring clear, still days, crisp cold nights and ideal golfing conditions. Whatever time you choose to visit WA, you can be sure of excellent conditions and fantastic conditioning of the courses.
Perth’s Best Golf Courses
West Australian golf tours offer a huge variety of courses and golfing challenges. Joondalup Resort is a 27 hole layout, and a must play for anyone visiting Perth. The immaculate presentation of this course is mirrored in its sister course of Meadow Springs. Both 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 all the more interesting 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 each and every one of the 18 fantastic holes. Drink in the bar afterwards, which overlooks the spectacular 9th green, is a terrific way to finish your round at this fantastic course, located in the Perth Hills.
With a climate made for outdoor fun, visitors to WA are spoilt for choice when it comes to their after golf activities. Water sports and boating on the river or ocean are readily available and hugely popular with the local population. You may wish to experience deep sea fishing or spend some time exploring Rottnest Island, located just a half hour ferry ride off the coast of Perth. The beautiful beaches offer the chance to take a dip in the ocean and then enjoy a relaxing drink or dinner at any of the restaurants and bars, making the perfect way to unwind after a day on the fairways. The city too offers great entertainment and shopping. Any non–golfing travelling partners will find plenty to do in the shopping centres and malls while the golfers are at play, and at night, the Crown Casino presents concerts and shows from around the world as well as first-class dining options.
Whatever accommodation requirements you have, Perth provides choices of hotel, resort and apartment options. International Golf Specialists ensures that the type best suited to you and your travelling group, and its location, fits in with the courses you wish to play and makes commuting between your accommodation and golf course as easy as possible. Staying on the course at Joondalup Resort will mean an easy stroll to the first tee while staying at a hotel or apartment in Perth City allows guests to take in a different experience every night.

With a great climate and plenty of daylight hours, visitors to Perth can squeeze so many things into each day of their visit. A visit to Kings Park is a great way to begin any trip to Perth and the best way to get the lay of the land. Covering an area larger than Central Park in New York, Kings Park provides a magnificent view across the Swan River, to the City, South Perth and the Hills region. Rottnest Island is a great day excursion, or you may wish to spend a night there and relax at the hotel, taking in a band and enjoying some well -deserved beverages. The wine producing regions of Margaret River and the Swan Valley are great places to stock up on your favourite drop and take in some of the most famous areas of Western Australia.
