Where: Walter Rd. Inglewood, Western Australia
Located in Perth’s northern suburbs, the Mt Lawley Golf Club opened in 1929. Royal Perth golf professional David Anderson designed the private course to compliment the gentle undulating sandy soil.
In the Scottish tradition, each of the holes are named and it is a part of the club's culture to refer to holes by name rather than number. The course features tight tree-lined fairways, traditional bunkers and firm, slick greens. Bunkering is a design feature (there are over 60 of them) with greenside traps cut close to putting surfaces that are generally subtle and mostly break off the shoulders of the bunkers.
Mount Lawley Golf Club is a traditional course reminiscent of the famous sandbelt courses in Melbourne. The course has long been considered the best member course in Western Australia. Mt Lawley’s signature hole is the short (132m) downhill par three 13th, named ‘commonwealth’ for the shape of the green resembles a map of Australia. The 13th is also the most affected by the treacherous West Australian wind. Other highlight holes include the dogleg 12th hole and the deceivingly short par four 16th.
