I headed to the fantastic Links Kennedy Bay for an event on the rapidly expanding Future Golf Club WA schedule!
Future Golf Club is the second largest social golf group in Australia and is growing rapidly, with close to 3000 members in total. They aim to make golf accessible to all, and give golfers of all levels the ability to play some of the best courses in the country!
As for the course, if you want to experience the tradition of true links golf there is nowhere better than The Links Kennedy Bay with 18 holes offering choice to golfers of all standards and tastes. It is in one of the best regions for golf in Western Australia & acclaimed as a jewel in the golfing crown.
Acclaimed as one of Western Australia’s best golf courses, The Links Kennedy Bay is beautifully undulating and a true links course in the Scottish and Irish traditions.
The course is fully irrigated however dry all year round, with its sandy base is exceptionally fast running and tight. The gently undulating Windsor Green fairways wind through sand dunes amongst western coastal wattle, grevillea, sedges and lilies. The excellent large Bent greens are all one would expect on a true links – firm, fast and true.
Running alongside the vast blue waters of the Indian Ocean, this beautifully manicured course, with its 115 pot style bunkers with revetted faces, is a delight to play from the white tees and nothing short of a challenge both mentally and physically from the black tees.
Opened in 2000 and designed by Michael Coate and the late Roger Mackay, in conjunction with 1991 British Open Champion Ian Baker Finch, this par 72 championship links golf course has been described by many as a true test of your golfing skills.
