Journey to golf course (20mins).

Today play The Lakes. Situated in the city, it was redesigned in the 70's by Devlin & Von Hagge and is renowned for its water hazards. Eleven of the 18 holes feature water, so the route is both picturesque and challenging. It has a long history of Australian Championships and is ranked among Australia’s top courses.

Day 4: SYDNEY

Journey to golf course (25mins).

Today play New South Wales. Designed by Dr. Alister MacKenzie (whose next project happened to be Cypress Point), this course is one of the greats ranked #5 in Australia and #37 in the world.  Opened in 1928 and situated on the rugged cliffs of La Perouse, it overlooks Botany Bay at the site of Captain James Cook's 1770 landing.  The layout is framed by water on three sides and has many characteristics of links golf – undulating fairways, spectacular views and complete exposure to the elements.  NSW’s four par 3s are considered by many to be the finest collection in the country.  No. 6 at 202 yards stands out as one of the game’s great “ocean carry” par 3’s not unlike No. 16 at Cypress.

Overnight: The Langham, Sydney.  Grand Langham Terrace room with breakfast included.

Today play Commonwealth. One of the finest courses on Melbourne's Sand Belt. This course of amazing charm is a real gem, designed by Sloan Morpeth & built in the 1920's. Commonwealth has hosted the Australian Open and is consistently rated among the top courses in Australia. Commonwealth features all the good facets of the Sandbelt courses: fast greens, exceptional bunkering and beautiful flora. Probably most important about this course is that having played it, you feel that you have just enjoyed a wonderful experience.

Day 6: MELBOURNE

Journey to golf course (30mins).

Today play Royal Melbourne West Course. Continually rated as the #1 golf course in Australia, and has been as high as #5 in the world, is the most recognized golf course on the world famous Melbourne Sandbelt. The site remains one of the finest ever found in the world of golf, full of dramatic undulation with fertile sandy soil and a natural rugged appearance. Designed by Dr. Alister Mackenzie, the bunkering is spectacular while the rough areas around the tees and bunkers are a mix of native grasses which beautifully and naturally frame each hole, providing great definition and contrast without distracting from the strategy. The greens provide the finest putting surfaces in Australia. 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 ideal line.

Overnight: The Langham, Melbourne.  Langham Club Grand River room with breakfast included.

Day 7: melbourne

Journey to golf course (30mins).

Today play Kingston Heath, host of the 2016 World Cup of Golf. There are seven solid clubs in Melbourne’s Sandbelt, Kingston Heath has a lot of people convinced that it’s the best because its “pure” 18 trumps Royal Melbourne’s composite 18. We’re playing both but wonderfully arguable!  Dr. MacKenzie’shand here was designing the bunkers which are essentially ground sculptures and regularly unavoidable.  There are ever present.  Overall design credit goes to DanSoutar from Sydney who was charged to design a course that would “stand the test of time” according to the consult of J.H. Taylor and Harry Vardon who had seen the future of the game with the advent of the rubber-cored ball. 

Overnight: The Langham, Melbourne.  Langham Club Grand River room with breakfast included.

Day 8: MELBOURNE

Journey to golf course (30mins).

Today play Victoria Golf Club. Acclaimed by many golfers the world over for it's fine hospitality, Victoria is steeped in tradition and the site of many major tournaments. Always a joy to play with gently contoured fairways that flow through avenues of magnificent trees, it is designed to challenge both the amateur and professional golfer. Certainly a traditional style course of great quality and variety. Peter Thomson was several of many notable members to start their careers here. The course had 3 designers, amongst them, Alister MacKenzie, and is rated in Australia's top 10.

Overnight: The Langham, Melbourne.  Langham Club Grand River room with breakfast included.

Day 9: MELBOURNE

Journey to golf course (20mins).

Today play Metropolitan. Rated among the very top courses in Australia, this course and Royal Melbourne were one in the same until 1901 when part of the membership favored a move to the southern sandhills while the other preferred their inner city home.  The new club was formed in 1908; tournament play began in 1930 after a series of Dr. Alister MacKenzie’s modifications. Seven Australian Opens later, along with five Australia PGAs plus a host of professional events including the World Golf Match Play Championship have defined Metropolitan as one of the best.  You’ll  notice here how the bunkers are cut into the greens which requires a hand finishing you won’t find on a handful of courses anywhere in the world.

Overnight: The Langham, Melbourne.  Langham Club Grand River room with breakfast included.
