Designed by the renowned golf architect and player, Graham Marsh, Secret Harbour reflects the style of traditional Scottish courses such as Muirfield, Turnberry and St. Andrews.
The par 72, 6447 metre long course is part of the ‘Golf Coast’ group of course and is a leisurely 45-minute drive from Perth.
Founded in 1998, its carefully manicured rolling fairways are pitted with well-positioned pot bunkers and bordered by lush fescue grass. Golfers who are used to tree lined parkland courses will find a totally new challenge here.
The original ‘Links’ has been joined by the ‘Dunes’ front nine which Graham Marsh regards as probably his best work ever, using the natural contours of the seaside to bring back the art of shot making, and with a breathtaking backdrop.
Secret Harbour is recognised as a ‘must play’ course by visiting overseas and Australian based professionals, particularly those playing on the links courses in Europe.
Each hole presents several tee options depending on wind conditions and the player’s ability. The course offers a mighty challenge from the back tees and an equally enjoyable experience for the average player from the white tees.
Secret Harbour is consistently ranked in top 25 public access courses in Australia and visiting players frequently praise the quality of its greens – some suggest they are the best in Australia. It is ranked in the Top 10 in Western Australia and at number 37 according to Australian Golf Digest.
It has played host to the Holden Scramble State Final 2012, 2013, 2014; the WA Junior Ladies Open 2004, 2005, 2006; and was named the WA Golf Facility of the Year in 2012 at the WA Golf Industry Awards.
US rock legend Alice Cooper called Secrets his ‘Favourite place to play whilst on tour’.
Lee Trevino called it, ‘A great test of golf and a wonderful place to play’.
