Golf Courses of Perth
Perth is a perfect destination for an Annual Golf Trip. The weather is generally warm, and perfect for golf- with the Fremantle Doctor (sea breeze) coming in off the Indian Ocean to cool the afternoon play. The beaches and parks are popular, as are the marine activities. A visit to Fremantle is a must. Here you can check out the market, the boutique shopping, the history along the foreshore, or choose from a nice selection of world class restaurants.
And of course there is a varied selection of quality golf courses all within a short distance from the CBD.
