Australia - Royal Melbourne Golf Club

Royal Melbourne Golf Club is the leading course in the "Sandbelt" of Melbourne and is considered by most as the best golf club in Australia. Royal Melbourne has hosted numerous national and international events, most famously the 1959 Canada Cup, the 1970 World Cup and the 1998 and 2011 Presidents Cup. The club consists of two golf courses; the West Course and East Course.

West Course
(Ranking - #9 World and #1 Australia)

The West Course at Royal Melbourne is truly a masterpiece. It is ranked the number one golf course in Australia and among the top 15 in the world. This course was designed in 1926 by the renowned Scottish golf architect, Dr Alister MacKenzie. The greens are known for being some of the finest in the world and full of dramatic undulations. Most holes dogleg, so distance means nothing and angle into the pin is everything. For championships, holes 8 & 9 and 13 - 16 are skipped in favor of six from the East Course, which is ranked 28th.

East Course
(Ranking - #28 World and #8 Australia)

Opened for play in 1932, the course was quickly recognized as a top tier course. The course, which has wonderful bunkering and green complexes, will leave you with breathtaking views and has an exceptional closing stretch. This balanced course measures out at just under 6,600 yards. For composite tournament play, East's holes 1-3 and 16-18 are used along with 12 of the West holes.
