You’ll wake with excitement as anticipation for our first round at Joondalup Country Club runs high. Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr, the championship course blends challenging golf with incredible surrounds. This spectacular yet uncompromising layout sweeps across dense bushland, cuts through steep limestone quarries and skirts picturesque lakes to present surprises and challenges at almost every turn. One minute you’re playing an approach shot beneath a 30-metre limestone cliff, the next you’re adapting to the fresh ocean breeze on an undulating links style fairway.

Non-golfers will enjoy a visit to the Perth Mint and discover the extraordinary stories behind the history of gold in Western Australia.

We hear you can go through more than 40 different crab dishes and a number of other delicacies, all prepared by local eateries and seafood purveyors.

A full day tour of sensational Margaret River awaits. We make our way to Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, with a stop at Augusta for morning tea. Cape Leeuwin is Australia’s most South-Westerly point, where the Indian and Southern Oceans meet. It’s so stunning, we’re sure even those who never take photos will be inspired to grab a few happy snaps. Nearby, we’ll marvel at the grandeur of Leeuwin Naturaliste Ridge beneath the soaring Karri Forest. We’ll stop for lunch in Margaret River with a little time to explore the artisan boutiques.

DAY 12: Friday 20 March SWAN VALLEY

Simply step out of your hotel for this morning’s round. The choice of course is yours.

Option 1: Play the Lakes course – 6:30am tee start.

Option 2: Play the Ellenbrook course – 9am tee start.

The Lakes, like all good championship courses, takes some thinking. Ranked #5 in Australia’s best golf resorts, course architects Graham Marsh and Ross Watson strategically used the stunning Swan Valley landscape to produce a challenging yet alluring course that commands respect. You’ll find many risk and reward holes along the gently undulating layout with water hazards and deep bunkers sprinkled throughout.

Tonight, enjoy a group dinner.
(B, D) Hotel: The Vines Resort, Swan Valley

 

DAY 13: Saturday 21 March SWAN VALLEY

This morning, tee off for your final round at th resort style Ellenbrook Course at The Vines. The landscaping areas on the fairways, for the most part, are generous enough for the average golfer, but a premium has been put on the consequence of finishing in either a bunker or in the drink.

Non-golfers enjoy a day at leisure. 15 minutes from your resort, you’ll find the Whiteman Park, a conservation reserve. Pick up a souvenir at the village shops, meet the local roos at the wildlife park or jump on a vintage train ride. (Own cost).

We join together tonight for our celebratory dinner in Muscats Restaurant, toasting our victors and new-found friendships.

We had a ball! You really should go on one!

The trip was absolutely wonderful. The smaller group (22) made for a very enjoyable golfing experience. We have been on a number of Go Golfing holidays, but this trip along with the Scotland and Ireland holiday is up there with the best.

Phil, Margaret River 2017

Could not have been much better! Very good and different holiday with challenging golf courses. Great group of people who mixed very well. Excellent food and wine. Much humour. Loved the region and its history.

Brian, Margaret River 2017

Golf courses were excellent especially The Cut, Joondalup and Meadow Springs. I really enjoyed the 2 lunches at Milford and Vasse Felix wineries. The Swan River cruise and the lunch at Sandalford was a great day.

David, Margaret River 2017

Vasse Felix was an amazing winery, had heard of it before from friends who have enjoyed their tasting menu…WOW!!!!! I have nothing but praise for the accommodation, the golf, the wineries and friends that I have made and our driver of course! Congrats Go Golfing on a great tour, thank you so much for the effort and organisation that went into this event.

Rhonda, Margaret River 2017

Loved the golf courses and the welcome at each – favourites were Joondalup, Secret Harbour and The Cut. The Vines had great friendly service and Mandurah Sebel was great to stay where we could walk to a choice of good restaurants. Bunker Bay beach was beautiful and so peaceful. Host and bus driver were great, friendly and looked after everything. Millbrook winery day and Vasse Felix lunch were real highlights – such fantastic service, wines and food.

Jackie and Paul, Margaret River 2017

The whole journey was well organised and delightful.
