Get iIn the swing of things at Bistro38

THE option of taking a 20-minute drive up the freeway to Joondalup has never been more enticing.

While the 27-hole golf course provides the perfect playground for business, Bistro38 provides an unforgettable culinary experience.

Bistro38 is Joondalup Resort’s fine dining restaurant and, because it’s part of the resort, you are guaranteed impeccable service in classy surrounds.

The marketing team at the resort promotes the “nature” of the place, which is tough considering it’s situated amongst a thriving residential marketplace. But, remarkably, a visit to the resort leaves you feeling as though you’ve left the metro area. Although located off one of the main streets, it is tucked away so that you almost feel like you’re down south, with the greenery providing the soothing tonic needed to enjoy good food and a great round of golf.

It’s this scenery that you can look out to while savouring the delights of executive chef Nigel Keene.

Mr Keene, previously an executive chef at the Hilton, prepares contemporary meals with a range of choice to leave you in complete culinary confusion – laksa, breast of chicken, T-bone steak, or pasta.

But choices need to be made quickly because the 27-hole golf course is there for the taking.

Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jnr, the course has a wide, open driving range, and we’re told quarries two, three and four will test the nerves.

A round of golf can be booked to coincide with completion of your meal at the bistro, which opens early, allowing breakfast and golf to be arranged just as easily as lunch and an afternoon round.

But if you want complete indulgence, the resort offers what’s called a par five package. Par five for a five-star indulgence rating – overnight accommodation, dinner at Bristro38, buffet breakfast and 18 holes of golf in a shared motor cart.

With a resort like this the options to spend your time are extensive, so ring the resort for the full rundown on the different packages available.
