History

Melville Glades is a natural Australian bushland course that is maintained to the highest levels, providing golfers with a quality experience. Our manicured fairways are Couch, the excellent greens consist of G2 Bent and our tees are Santa Anna. These specific grasses provide the best playing surfaces for our climate and conditions. Our Members play more rounds of golf than any other private 18-hole golf course in Western Australia supporting our claim to be the best members golf club in the state, once again reinforced by our induction into the Clubs WA Hall of Fame for winning the Best Golf Club from 2009 to 2011.

The course has been in place since 1969 when first designed by Al Howard, a highly respected Sydney Course Designer. Design changes over time have been made by Graham Marsh, Ross Watson and Phil Jacobs.
