Golf Course Beach (K 9) is located immediately south of Town Beach. The 4.7 km long beach faces southwest across Roebuck Bay and curves round slightly to face east in lee of Entrance Point. The beach is backed by a continuous foredune, with minor vegetated transgressive dunes along the southern half, where the dunes sit atop the red pindan soils. In addition the old meat works is located behind the eastern end, then the rifle range and finally the golf course, with the best access at the southern end of the beach. It consists of a narrow high tide beach fronted by a band of beachrock, then 1 km wide tidal flats, with mangroves fringing each end. It is not a popular beach owing to the more restricted access. The beach terminates on the northern side of Entrance Point clustered around which are three small beaches (K 10-12), all fronted by the deeper water and strong tidal currents which sweep around the point.
