Meadow Springs Golf & Country Club
A traditional parkland style course in the Australian bush, Meadow Springs is known for its year-round conditioning with superb fast and true greens, just 70km from Perth.
About the Club
Located an hour south of Perth, Meadow Springs meanders through natural Australian bush with towering 200-year-old Tuart trees lining the immaculate, undulating fairways.
The course presents a highly regarded test for players but is also renowned for its playability. Generous fairways mask well-placed bunkers and players should be careful with second and third place shots as missing the large undulating greens in the wrong places can be costly.
A traditional parkland style course, Meadow Springs is known for its year-round conditioning with superb fast and true greens. The course is not long by today’s standards, at 6189 metres but is very much a strategic course, which golfers must think their way around. And with few holes running in parallel, you’ll often feel alone in the wilderness.
Opened in 1987, Meadow Springs Golf & Country Club was designed by famed American, Robert Trent Jones Jnr to offer ‘golf as nature intended’. While every hole is memorable in its own way, the most photographed is the 17th – a 360 metre par 4 which doglegs to the right, showcasing Trent Jones Jnr’s signature bunkering.

The resort style course has played host to the WA Open Championship seven times, although the current focus is on providing an outstanding product to members, public and corporate golfers.
