A beautiful 9-hole course with views of the Swan River, as well as Perth, Fremantle & the Indian Ocean. A nice place for a walk by the river, or cycle. There’s also a kiosk with pro shop & hire clubs.

Played Point Walter two weeks ago on a Monday. Excellent location and reasonable length for 9 hole hackers course. Some doglegs, not much deep rough easy hazards. Greens were ok, but slow and overdue for a cut, probably never rolled. Sea breeze after lunch challenges the big spray hitters. Previous review mentioned someone pushing in front, same thing happened to us, quite typical for regulars to play any hole any sequence because 'they own the place'. Many slow players, no marshall to keep up pace of play. Good cafe, friendly pro shop staff, but pro shop stock is dismal, think PGF, Brosnan and other overpriced junk.

I played 18 here recently. It was mid morning, midweek so I was expecting it to be quiet but it was actually quite busy. Unfortunately, it was rather slow going but as I was playing by myself I suppose I couldn't complain. It was annoying, however, when I was putting on the 4th and as soon as the two-ball ahead of me had finished teeing off on the 5th another two-ball appeared from nowhere and pushed in in front of me. Then, on my second time around I got stuck behind a guy who was playing three balls by himself. I found the rough tricky to play off and the greens pretty fast. I don't agree that the Par 3's are tough- they are two of the easiest I've played. The Pro shop staff were cheery and the shop was well-stocked.

A very good 9 hole course in scenic surrounds. Very good condition, this course should see more golfers, we love the place. It is rather short (the par 5 should be a 4 on length alone), but the doglegs in both directions and placement of trees in the middle of the fairway add to the challenge. Make it a bit of fun and keep the driver in the bag. Very scenic and a pleasure to play.

A scenic 9 hole gem that all Perth golfers should play once, at least. Our 4-ball started at 3pm on a Sunday afternoon, there was a bit of traffic but we rarely waited more than a minute or so off any tee. The first hole *should* be straightforward, but it requires precise golf to get on in reg. Perhaps Perth's shortest par 5 is an opportunity to make an impression on your scorecard, but you'll have to negotiate one of its toughest par 3s before you do. Every hole here is different, dog-legs in both directions, harsh-but-fair rough and some of the best greens on any WA public course.

Got a quick 9 holes in on the afternoon of Saturday 21/3/09, hitting off at about 4.40pm. I guess I was just looking to play somewhere new for a change, so I decided to head South of the river in search of this little course and check out the scene. At $16.50 for 9 holes, its about average for a Perth public course. The course is a bit undulative which makes things interesting for the first time, especially the par 4 1st and the par 5 2nd that are both uphill tee shots. However I think the second at 406m long has to be the shortest and easiest par 5 in WA. Any competent player who fails to par this one should consider it almost a bogey. Its also probably one of 3 holes on the course I'd hit driver off the tee on, the others are the 8th and the 7th. The only real strength of this layout though is possibly the length of its two par 3's, the second at 165m (downhill) and the 6th at 177m (small elevated green). At only 5250m long, this is a par 70 course that would have a theoretical CCR of 65 most days I'd Imagine. Single figure golfers should consider paring it to be their goal and anything more to be just an average round as mine was at +3 for the 9 holes. This has to be one of Perths easiest golf courses. A few bunkers could make this course a better challenge, though the major criticism I have is the variance of the greens. They are cut a good length and are well maintained for a public course by the greenstaff who I saw out watering them, however the 8th and 9th greens are like concrete and quick, with all the others very soft and slow. I guess for a public course you must expect this, but this had the capacity to ruin my score. I'll still stick by my belief that Maylands Peninsula has the most consistent greens for a public course in Perth, whether they be slow or quick - they are all of the same speed and firmness. Despite being a reasonable course for a 9 hole layout, I'm not sure if I'd drive all the way back almost to Freo to play it again - I've been there, done it and nothing really took my fancy. I still consider 18 holes at either of the two Wembley courses or at Maylands Peninsula to be the best value for a public course. Point Walter has a nice BBQ area, bar area with a small pro shop. Its ok for beginners and people having a social hit. It get 2.5 stars from me but I wouldn't rate it much higher.

Good value for money course with good views of the Swan River. No bunkers or water hazards to contend with, and the fairways are in good condition. The greens could do with some work though. Doesnt seem to get many players on weekdays, so great secluded spot to get a quick 9 holes in.
