Melbourne is home to some of the best golf courses in Australia and certainly can compete with any other major city. In particular the Sandbelt region is blessed with a high concentration of championship-level courses, and visitors are spoilt for choice. Here are some of the very best in the region.
Not the cheapest golf course around Australia but after all it does advertise itself as The pinnacle of golf in Australia. And many pros and experienced players would be hard put to argue against this summary.
There are actually two 18 hole courses at Royal Melbourne (East and West). And the West has been named as the finest course in the whole of Australia by the Australian Golf Digest.
It is actually the oldest course in Australia, and holds the distinction of being the first course outside America to host the PGA President’s Cup.
Possibly the sandiest course in Australia, which throws up a unique challenge to competent golfers and members. There are 128 bunkers on this course that means you have to be a really accurate golfer to attempt playing at Kingston Heath.
This course has been home to the Australian Open no less than seven times as well as also hosting the Australian Masters competition. It even appears in the top twenty golf courses of Golf Digest’s top 100.
Brighton Golf Course is one of the most affordable in and around Melbourne, but that is not to say it is not a first class test of golfing skills. Just like Kingston Heath this course is a real test for golfers who hate bunkers as they appear on every hole on the course.
What is endearing about Brighton Golf Club is the way it welcomes visitors as well as members. There is no overly strict club rules and playing here is relaxed and more about the sport than golf ethics.
