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 play," but don't expect to shoot anywhere near your handicap on a first visit.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.
