Founded in 1928 with a course layout designed by Alex Russell, the business partner of legendary golf architect Dr Alister Mackenzie, Lake Karrinyup has maintained a wonderful bush setting for golfers while providing a tranquil haven for an abundance of native flora and fauna.
Lake Karrinyup is a club of strong traditions and the lovely washed limestone and hardwood jarrah timber-lined walls of its magnificent clubhouse reflect the history of its many famous visitors. The first Australian Open to be held in Western Australia was held at Lake Karrinyup in 1952 and Norman Von Nida had to overcome a strong field that included old rivals such as Peter Thomson and Kel Nagle to become national champion. Over the ensuing years in which Lake Karrinyup hosted the Australian Open it has seen some of the worlds best golfers attempt to tame the tough course. Some who did so and became Australian Open Champions included Bruce Devlin (1960), Jack Nicklaus (1968), and Gary Player (1974) who made Lake Karrinyup the home of his seventh Australian Open Championship.
The Lake Karrinyup Country Club of today is one which constantly upgrades its demanding world class golf course and fine clubhouse facilities. It is an island of tranquillity and natural charm well hidden from any sign of the busy bustling urban landscape that surrounds it. Simply put, it is a wonderful place to play the constantly challenging, great game of golf.
