Royal Melbourne’s West Course is simply a combination of great design and construction. A course highlighted by dramatic undulation, fertile sandy soil and a natural rugged appearance. An Alistair Mackenzie masterpiece.
The course includes bold sandelt bunkering while the rough areas around the tees and bunkers are a mix of native grasses to naturally frame the hole, which provides a great definition and contrast. The greens are brilliant and for decades have consistently provided the finest putting surfaces in Australia. They are large and beautifully contoured they are built to accommodate approaches from a number of angles with each progressively more difficult the further the tee shot strays from the perfect line.
Royal Melbourne is continuosly ranked in the top 10 of The World’s best. Golf digest recently ranked Royal Melbourne as the best course outside of the US.
