The Royal Melbourne Golf Club is continually rated as the number 1 golf course in Australia and has been as high as number 5 in the world. It is the most recognised golf course on the world famous Melbourne Sandbelt.
There are a number of key features of Royal Melbourne – tea tree scrub lining the fairways and catching any errant shots, cavernous bunkers surrounding most greens and also placed strategically on most fairways to catch a slightly wayward drive and lightning fast greens that give up their fair share of 3 putts.The golf club boasts 36 holes comprising of the East and West courses. The 18 hole composite course comprises 6 holes from the East Course and 12 holes from the West Course all contained within the one boundary.
The West Course forms the majority of holes contained within the main boundaries of the golf course aside from 4 holes (13 to 16) which are played across the road in an adjoining property. The par 5 holes are not long and all are reachable in two for the longer hitters. The difficulty of these holes is not so much in the length of the holes but rather the harsh penalties which exists for a less than perfectly struck shot.
