New Member: Margaret River Golf Club

By April 13, 2016 April 21st, 2016 Member Profiles, What's new about MRBTA members?

The Margaret River Golf Club is a private club open to both new members and visitors.

The club is located in the heart of the Margaret River Wine Region, just 5 minutes drive from the town centre, and situated on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Coastal Ridge. The 6092 metre par 72 course is one of Western Australia’s most highly regarded country courses.

The golf course was created by a group of golfing enthusiasts in the early 1950’s in a bushland cleared setting near the mouth of the Margaret River and winds its way up and down the slopes of the coastal ridge.

This spectacular setting is complemented by an abundance of flora and fauna, native and local trees. The resident kangaroos have been a major attraction for visitors, golfers and non-golfers alike for many years.

Although not heavily bunkered, the course features numerous water hazards, mostly on the front nine holes. The back nine in particular requires careful shot consideration owing to the undulating fairways and large trees.

The Margaret River golf course is in pristine condition year round and at its perfect best during the winter months especially. Visitors are welcome but bookings are essential. Clubs, buggies and carts are available for hire at the on-course golf shop that also stock a wide range of equipment and essentials.

The clubhouse offers a well stocked bar and stunning views over the course from the verandah.

The bar is open daily from 11am to 7pm during summer. Menu available all day.
