Lake Karrinyup is the best course in the west of the country, a result of the work of Alex Russell. In the mid-2000s we rebuilt the greens and bunkers as well as making changes to many holes to keep the course relevant for modern tournament play. We widened several fairways making the driving ‘easier’ in some cases but the greens all ask to be approached from a particular part of the clubs broad fairways.
Our most recent work at the club took place in 2017 and 2018, which involved the re-profiling of all 18 greens to address some agronomic problems. As a part of this renovation work, we took the opportunity to reshape all of the bunkers to reclaim the rugged style Russell had originally envisaged when he instructed his construction crew to ‘make them just as they are in (Robert) Hunter’s book’.
