Sanctuary Golf Resort

Just outside of the major regional center of Bunbury - a two-hour drive from Perth - is Sanctuary Golf Resort. With 31 apartments and townhouses, the Sanctuary is a well-regarded resort in the popular South West region. The golf course, open to all of the public, is the area's most talked about, with a reputation of being a parkland course with resort-style hazards.

The course was designed in 1994 by prominent West Australian golf architect Michael Coate. At 5,800 meters, this par 71 is relatively short. Sanctuary's biggest and most unique features are the bountiful hazards. Sixty-four bunkers are strewn across the course with man-made lakes being part of 12 of the holes. The greens are soft and run truer than most resort greens.

One hole exemplifies the entire course. The 12th is a 445-meter par 5 known as 'the island.' Split into three 150-meter parts by an inlet, making par is as difficult as it looks from the tee. The green sits to the right of the fairway with a large, steep bunker to the left. Dexterity is essential: a long drive, accuracy, and club selection are all integral. The most important factor is not letting the layout intimidate.

Any frustration toward the lakes after a round can be alleviated by practicing drives into it. The aqua driving range is popular, especially amongst hotel guests unfamiliar with golf. The course is easily walkable but cart hire is available. The resort itself is well received and the on-site restaurant is one of Bunbury's finest.
