This is a difficult course to rate as we played it just after the greens had been cored, so they were bumpy and slow. On the day we played they were also thatching some of the fairways and so they also were rough and in poor condition. The bunkers were also in very poor condition, with virtually no sand. They did have mud, sometimes wet, sometimes crusty and dry, so that it was almost impossible to get a decent lie in them and to play with any distance judgement out of them. So our impressions of the course were very poor, but it would be interesting to play it again when things were in better condition as the layout shows promise. For the conditions we had the $40 green fees were too high. Although a resort style course meandering through a housing estate it is an easy walking course and so a cart is not required. Probably worth a game if you can get to it when the fairways and greens are in better shape.

Played the course twice last week while on holidays at Eagle Bay and was plaesantly surprised to find a playble yet challenging track. Was particularly impressed with the greens as they just played and rolled purely.

Also liked the fact that the course meandered in all different directions so you had to play into, with and across whatever wind was present. It was breezy the first day and stronger on the second but nothing too extreme.

Two holes (15 & 16) were still out of play but overall I enjoyed the course. Walked the first day and cart the second but it’s not a difficult walk at all.

Well it looked like a nice course. What we able to play was interesting, with many holes that stick in your mind, even though its flat country they have been able to produce a little bit of elevation change to make it enjoyable. It was disappointing being able to play only 12 holes of the course due to course maintenance and refurbishment. The first few holes are out in the open with little to no protection, I assume the last few are as well, which made it very interesting with the wind. Then it’s into the houses and trees, the houses are far enough back not to be in your mind on the tee. Then it’s back out into fairly open ground for some long open holes just to add a different dimension to what has already been offered.

I didn’t mind the greens; they were in good condition with just enough to get turn without being over the top roller coaster greens. The rough takes a little bit off the ball but it’s not wrist breaking stuff.

The clubhouse and pro shop are yet to come so other than the golf there was not a lot to offer. Knowing about the course reduction before we started also would have been nice. Overall it will be a good course when it is finished, it’s not too tricked up to be frustrating, and provides a lot of variety to be interesting. I’ll be back in a couple of years.

New golfers are going to find the Dunborough Lakes golf course very hard because when there is a strong southerly wind blowing on holes 14,16 17, 18 you may need to play low into a crosswind.

The course is about 2.5 hours from Perth and in the townsite of Dunsborough which is very close to the great vineyards of the Margaret River district.

The course is always challenging especially with the sea breeze. There are no adjacent fairways and this makes it more pleasant as there are no errant hits from other fairways.

The water holes seem to have ball magnets and require some thought and club selection. Trying to decide whether to go for the green over water or go around is always a challenge.

It is a very relaxing and pleasant place to play golf before heading of to the vineyards.

The greens are in great shape and fairways are relatively generous. After heavy rain the course can give plugged balls, but this is becoming less of a problem with new lakes and drainage being recently done.

I always find time to play the course when on holidays from Perth.
