The Carramar Golf Course is best described as a public course of resort-style standard situated 40 minutes north of the centre of Perth. Carramar is also just 5 minutes away from the new city of Joondalup. Designed by Bob Stanton, Carramar was built and Opened in 1994 by the City of Wanneroo. Off the Championship tees it is renowned, as one of the toughest tests of golf in Perth.
While the course measures 6121 metre (6733 yards) off the back tees, it does not play that long. Carramar’s reputed difficulty is that it is carved through native Australian bushland, giving errant drivers the opportunity to view some of the wildflowers and kangaroos that inhabit the course.
The most difficult hole at Carramar is the 423metre – par 4 – 5th which has been dubbed ‘Heartbreak Hill’ by course professional Tim Crosbie. Many a round has been ruined by this monster hole. Par golf demands a tee shot of some 250 metres off an elevated tee to pass the corner and leave a chance to get home in two up the hill! Make five and you’ll be happy! Many of the greens at Carramar are guarded by grassy hollows and large bunkers, but don’t let this scare you off- you can choose which tees to play from. Off the championship blue tees it’s a monster but off the white markers just a challenge.
