Was lucky enough to play Joondalup back in March this year and let me start by saying that I am a huge Robert Trent Jones Jr fan (Two of my all time favourite courses are Palmer Resort Coolum and National Old) and he didn't disappoint with Joondalup. Joondalup is like no course I have ever played, a totally unique golfing experience that all golfers should experience at least once in their lifetime. We played the Quarry and Dune combination of 9's (which I am told is the best combo to play) and some of the terrain and scenery is absolutely spectacular. The course was in sensational condition and whilst the layout was challenging, good shots were rewarded. The course has a real 'intimidation' factor on a number of its holes, but it is all a matter of mind over matter. What I really enjoyed about this course was the uniqueness of hitting shots over massive ravines, out of enormous bunkers, right next to the side of hugh cliff faces and putting on the large, undulating greens. Whilst not the toughest layout I have ever played, Joondalup is certainly the most unique. It would have to be one of the most enjoyable and fun golfing experiences of my life. A MUST play for all golfers, just purely for the experience. Hope you enjoy the pictures, they don't do the course justice...... C'mon all you Perth ISGer's get your act together and organise an ISG day there, it is well worth it!!!

I think the problem you will find is that while some like the place, just as many hate it and would never be seen dead on it. Its design is very polarising. Not for me Im afraid, but thats just me.
