For some people, the word ‘golf’ conjures up imagery of elderly gents in polo shirts and sweaters trotting around a green at a leisurely pace. However, there is so much more to golf than this shallow view. Even if you’ve never really tried your hand at golf — or you simply aren’t very good — there’s plenty to like about many of the golf courses in and around Perth, especially if you want to get the family involved. There is also a great collection of mini golf courses, giving the whole family something to do.
