The undisputed No. 1 golf course in Australia and the 6th best course in the World (Golf Digest), the West Course at Royal Melbourne is as pure a golf experience as can be found on these shores. It is simply a great golf course design, wonderfully and faithfully constructed and maintained. Alister MacKenzie’s 1926 routing fits perfectly into the contours of the rolling sandbelt land. The greens are miniature versions of the surrounding topography. The crisp bunkering, with vertical edges a foot or more tall, encroaches into fairways and putting surfaces. Most holes dogleg and the fairways are wide – distance is not a major factor, but with fast and firm greens, angle-into-the-pin is everything. Royal Melbourne has played host to numerous national and international tournaments and in 2019 will again be the venue for The President’s Cup. The Club, which was founded in 1891 has a proud reputation of providing visitors with a friendly, welcoming and inclusive experience to sit alongside its peerless golf courses.
