Royal Perth Golf Club is located just a few minutes from the Perth CBD and situated on the banks of the Swan River. The Club has a strong history dating back to 1895 when it commenced on Burswood Island before moving to Wattle Grove Farm, Belmont in 1900 and then to its current site in 1908. The prestigious Club is the oldest in Western Australia and was awarded its Royal Charter in 1937.

Built on less than 30 hectares (74 acres) the founders have left a great legacy for generations of golfers over the past 100 plus years. The golf course is built on flat terrain with narrow fairways requiring accurate placement from the tee. Being an "old style" course, the greens, in general, are small in size making them elusive targets, especially when the sea breeze sweeps in off the adjacent Swan River.

The outward nine has three par 5's making it a par of 37 and, apart from holes 6 and 9, borders the golf course bringing out of bounds into play for errant shots moving from right to left. The inward nine is played inside the course boundaries and has a par of 35 with the 18th being the only par 5. Generally, the back nine is a little more difficult with three tough par 4's to negotiate.

By modern standards, Royal Perth is not long measuring just over 6,000-metres. Despite this, the golf course challenges the very best players with narrow fairways and renowned firm fast greens. Whilst there is little rough on the course there are near 80 bunkers increasing the degree of difficulty.

Royal Perth Golf Club has hosted numerous championships for both amateurs and professionals. Having hosted three Australian Senior Opens and the WA Open in recent years, this championship par 72 golf course is a challenging and tough test for any golfer.

The Club also offers some great dining opportunities with excellent service, sumptuous food, and an outstanding wine list to entertain its guests. The wine cellar is one of Perth's most extensive and one of its best-kept secrets.
