Est. 1985

The prestigious Joondalup Resort is home to a unique and thrilling 27-hole golf course, rightly acclaimed as one of Australia's very best. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, the Quarry, Lake and Dune nines sweep across dense, undulating bushland in spectacular fashion. Whether cutting through the steep cliffs of former limestone quarries, or skirting picturesque lakes, each hole carries its own identity and challenge.

On the original two nines, Quarry and Dune, you'll find some of the most visually striking holes. Exquisitely crafted in a quarry gorge, the layout is characterised by significant elevation changes, incredible bunkering and huge, testing greens. The signature par-4 2nd on Quarry plays from an elevated tee, back up to a huge green perched on a plateau. A vast and intimidating "moon crater" fairway-bunker looms large from the tee, giving the hole its notoriety. Quarry's par-3 3rd, as photogenic as they come, requires a shot across part of the open quarry.

The Dune course contains a similar feast of elevation changes, wonderfully sculpted holes, "wildly" rolling fairways and plenty more limestone cliffs.

Although not as revered as the Quarry-Dune combination, the Lake-nine presents another loop of excellently maintained golf holes, full of intrigue and challenge. In keeping with its siblings, the fabulously bunkered holes occupy folding terrain, flanked by bushland, towering eucalyptus and occasional, large, unobtrusive villas.

One of Australia's most imaginative layouts, a "must, must play," but don't expect to shoot anywhere near your handicap on a first visit.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
