Situated a couple of kilometres inland from where the Margaret River reaches the Indian Ocean, the course at Margaret River Golf Club was fashioned in the early 1950s by local golf enthusiasts clearing the thick coastal bushland to carve out an 18-hole layout that winds is way up and down the slopes of the coastal ridge.
Feature holes include the slightly right doglegging par five 7th, where a creek runs across the fairway 80 metres from the green and a pond lies to the right of the putting surface. The par three hole immediately following at the 8th also demands respect as there’s water protecting the triangular-shaped green to the front, right and left.
On the longer back nine, two par five holes are played back-to-back at the 13th and 14th, where the two-tiered green on the 13th slopes from left to right, with the opposite camber on the 14th. The downhill 18th offers panoramic views from the tee before the fairway then veers right towards the home green.
