The Golf Course 

The course is 5543 metres for men and 5031 meters for ladies. Par for the course is 70 strokes, 35 for each nine. The ACR is 68 for both men and women

In 1970 alternate tees were introduce by Des Sullivan and Cam McNab. This added variety to the golf course. The Tee boxes in the early days where just mounds of hardened dirt, but eventually all became wooden structures. Up until 2012, all tee boxes are built from brick. Rubber tee mats were introduced in the early 1960s, but since 1987 synthetic tees were installed.

The course now in 2013 has gone through a most impressive upgrade in the history of the club. After many years of negotiations among prominent Club members and Rottnest Island Authority Board members and the Island CEO the course is currently being upgraded with capital works.  Further information and photos are found on Course Development 2013 page
