Nestled in between the coast and the Margaret River township, Margaret River Golf Club is the ideal setting for guests who want to enjoy some fresh air in beautiful surroundings. The well-manicured green ensures that the club is one of Western Australia’s most highly regarded country golf courses. Golfers, walkers or just outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the ample array of local trees on display through-out the course.


Whether it be karri, jarrah or peppermint trees located among the water features on the course, the surrounding wildlife of kangaroos, native birds and rabbits will also provide a wonderful experience. With spectacular views of the countryside and southern vineyards, Margaret River Golf Course is an ideal escape for families, friends or colleagues visiting the South-West.

The on-course golf shop provides visitors with the opportunity to hire clubs, carts and buggies, while balls and tees are also available. If planning a visit, it’s always a good idea to contact the club and just confirm the tee times.
