Played Kwinana Golf Course a number of times after work in
Rockingham during 2007. I was very amazed at the layout and
condition of this course, as by driving around it, all you see is
scrub, grass trees, sand, sand and well, just MORE SAND! However
this course is a hidden gem of WA! At 6271m and with a par of 72,
the length and undulation of this track will give even the better
player a test and a half, especially if the wind gets up on this
The best hole for me was the par 5 12th, which is a dogleg left
after the drive and plays steeply uphill for the 2nd/3rd shots.
The smallish green is at the top of a hill with a bunker
short-right. If you get on the wrong side of this flag when the
greens are quick you will be sorry as I was if you miss. Its
impossible to stop the ball and you could even end up off the
green and running back down the hill towards that bunker!
The par 4's on this course are a tremendous strength, boasting
some great doglegs left and right, with wide open fairways but
sandy unforgivable rough. The bigger hitters can blast away to
carry the taller trees and will be a short iron from the green at
Some of the long, downhill par 4's provide great asthetics and a
true appreciation of the course's vegetation. The finishing holes
to each nine are brilliant. They are each dogleg left par 5's
with tall trees, grass trees and scrub in play for the wayward
2nd shot on each side of the fairway. The 17th hole is a 400m+
par 4 and is index one. It is very long and I couldn't get there
with a long iron. It definitely deserves it's rating of index 1
and thats after a flushed drive!
The greens are about medium sized and are a good pace, quite true
and very grainy. In fact this course is the perfect test if you
dont putt firmly or the grain will make you miss time and time
again, even from close range. So if you putt well here you have
definitely earned your stats.
This is a very interesting course and boasts very good value for
money membership. It is one of the best public access courses in
the Perth region and one of the longest. You must hit the driver
well all day or you will make heaps of bogies on the longer
holes, so remember that if you go there. Kwinana is no Joondalup
but deserves 5 stars due to its layout and condition. Its the
hidden gem of Perth. It is definitely worth a look if your in the
area or have a day to play somewhere different in a competition.
If you know the course well you will get full value for good
I played there today for the first time after reading the reviews
on here and I was very pleased with my day. First of all the
value for money is excellent, this course is cheaper than most
other courses around and superior. The fairways are very lush and
green and also have plenty of give in them to allow you to get
under the ball. The greens were very fast and extremely
challenging, you really have to have a great touch to get it
close or it could roll on quite a way. There is also a good
variety of holes, there is a lot of dog legs and not many dead
straight holes which keeps it interesting. The rough is fairly
forgiving in most areas bar a few and for once I didn't lose a
ball. There are also quite a few long holes which is a nice
change from most of the metro area courses.
This is one of the best public courses around the Perth area and
I would highly recommend it, an excellent course with excellent
rates what more could you ask for.
I'm a member at kwinana and i would have to say this is
brilliant. i like the fast greens which makes it easy to read
your puts and also the fairways are in really good condition now
but it is also a challenge for some golfers such as myself i play
off 25 and i'm small for my age and because the fairways don't
run you need to carry the hole way for your shot be good and
because it is a long course i'm not a big hitter but i like this
course a lot and is probably a five star from me.
played there again today great course long fast greens pleasure
to out there
I have played this course afew times now and I am loving it. It
is a longer course than others in the area, with the back nine
being much hillier. The course is in top condition with the
greens running very smoothly and true. There are a nice
combination of dog legs, tricky greens and idylic pin placements
to make the layout exceptional. My favourite hole is the 12th par
5. For the big hitters, it can be reached in two quite easily,
however, the large, sloping green runs into a bunker making the
decision to lay up a sensible, yet less rewarding option.
I have played this course often, and consider it one of my
favourites – especially in winter, when it really bares
It starts well with the easiest of the par fives and, apart from
the difficult (index 3) second hole, generally works you harder
as you go along. All the fairways are uniform in grass cover and
depth, and a constant mix of lies to test every shot and club.
The greens can play at slightly different speeds – the
difficult par 5 12th is quick and deadly for you heavy handed
putters! The par 3 14th also demands alot of respect.
The sand bunkers are consistant and adorn 12 of the 18 holes.
Overall, this is a great course for every golfer and a very
pleasant days outing.
TIP; most tee shots are best placed centre/left on the fairways.
Kwinana golf course is a great course and a real surprise. The
challenge is great, and needs to be played well, or your day can
very easily go wrong. Lots of doglegs can get you into trouble,
but fortunatly, not much water. A real well designed course and
well worth a look.
I have played at this golf course and it is very demanding
because if you hit one bad shot you could be in the tree’s.
I also like this course because it gave me a challenge with all
the hills that you’ve got to predict where the ball
go’s and the best hole of all is the 18th. i would say this
because if you don’t get a good shot off the tee then you
mite be in a little trouble. I can give you a tip about this
course is that if you hat the rough this is a good course because
the fairways are wide and that with mainly all the par 5’s
i would try get your ball as closs as you can to the green in 3-4
shots otherwise you’re stuffed. on one of the holes it is a
very good hole for anybody who slices the ball because you have
to hit over a bend and it has a big right hand corner there so if
you slice you will be fine. When playing there and you’re
in the rough be careful because the tree’s over hang. I
would rate this course a 4-5 star rating simply that it is a
beautiful looking course and that it would be a very good one to
I have played this course several times now. It's long and
demands a lot of respect. Expect to test your abilities. Have
found that this course rates 4-5 strokes above your current
handicap. This is not an easy short length course like a lot of
others around. But don't be afraid...
Greens tend to be smaller, fairly fast and true, fairways in good
order, enough bunkers to test your abilities, and a pleasant well
This is a private/public course and is well maintained by very
proficient staff (by the looks of it).
Facilities are good and have been, and are still being, upgraded.
Has good clean lockers and bar facilities.
I enjoyed the test immensely and hope you do as well.
