Day 1 - June 24, 2018
The Links Kennedy Bay
Depart Pan Pacific: 08.30
Cost: $120 USD including cart and light lunch
Acclaimed as one of Western Australia's best golf courses, The Links Kennedy Bay is beautifully undulating and a true links course in the Scottish and Irish traditions.
Running alongside the vast blue waters of the Indian Ocean, this beautifully manicured course, with its 115 pot-style bunkers with revetted faces, is a delight to play from the white tees and nothing short of a challenge both mentally and physically from the black tees.
Opened in 2000 and designed by Michael Coate and the late Roger Mackay, in conjunction with 1991 British Open Champion Ian Baker Finch, this par 72 championship links golf course has been described by many as a true test of your golfing skills.
Consistently Ranked in the "Top 20 Golf Courses" and "Top 5 Public Access Golf Courses" in Australia, and named in the 2011 Rolex Top 1000 Golf Courses in the World, The Links Kennedy Bay is situated just 40 minutes south of Perth.
Please email directly to Sam Walker to get signed up. Pay the $120 on arrival to Perth.
