the greens at hillview are some of the best in perth public
course's. the roll on the greens are very true.
the fairways leave a lot to be desired, they are patchy and need
a lot maintainance.
i enjoy playing this course because it has a tricky layout and
I played this course last year and wasn't impressed with the
condition. I couldn't believe the transformation, the
fairways are very good, and you could get a nice roll on the
greens. The layout is as challenging as ever for a public course,
the bunkers were very nicely maintained and there was plenty of
definition between rough and fariway which is another
improvement. The course is long from the back tees, but not too
long from the whites. I spoke to the girl in the shop about the
improvements and she told me they'd spent $100,000 on new
equipment and have new staff throughout the place including the
greenkeepers, it shows, we had a good day.
Hillview..well it is a course that could but doesnt it is a
course that should but doesnt. Layout is good but greens and
rough are left in at best modest condition. Holes lack
imagination in some areas but the par 3 8th on the front nine is
challenging and well thought out but the course will leave you
wanting more. reasonable practise facillities are let down by now
chipping green...unless u call mowed grass green but with a
little effort this course really could shine. Course professional
is a great teacher.
A worthwhile course if ur in the area
This isn't the prettiest course by a long shot but I've
played this course many times and always find it challenging.
What makes it so challenging is the long driving needed to make
greens in regulation. There are quite a few bunkers and fast
sloping multi tiered greens make putting interesting. The
fairways are somewhat generous in width and are fast n hard so
you get plenty of ball roll. Stray drives will almost always end
in the soft sandy edges which are always hard to hit any decent
long shot from. A few hills and doglegs add to the challenge.
10,000 trees planted about 10 years ago are starting to mature
and give the course a more pronounced rough area in between
fairways. Good bar facilities and club house. Overall I think
good to better players will enjoy the challenge this course
