History

Royal Fremantle was the first 18 hole golf course in Western Australia, and dates from 1907. Originally designed by Arthur Oliphant and Peter Anderson, the club was granted royal status in 1930.

In 1970 Tommy Howard and Sloan Morpeth redesigned the course after land was lost to a development

Course

Royal Fremantle GC- Hole 4Royal Fremantle GC- Hole 4 

Royal Fremantle is a delightful parkland course in the heart of suburbia. With lush kikuyu fairways, and a typical Aussie bush setting of gum trees and blackboys it really is a lovely place to play golf

This is a good members course rather than a championship course, but is a strong test of golf.

Notable holes include:

- the long par 4 opening hole, which sets the standard high to start

- the short dogleg par 4 fifth is a picturesque hole which requires some accuracy off the tee to find a path to the green
