Five of Australias Best Golf Courses:
St Andrews Beach Golf Club: The Golf Club at St Andrews Beach is located in the heart of the Cups Region on the Mornington Peninsula. Comprising two 18 hole championship courses as well as a championship composite layout designed by internationally renowned architect Tom Doak, the course is complemented by a members clubhouse, driving range, 5 star hotel, holiday villas and sports precincts. The exclusive members only Gunnamatta Course is now playing and new members are welcome. Limited opportunities exist for interstate and overseas golfers to play St. Andrews Beach.

The Royal Melbourne Golf Club: The Royal Melbourne Golf Club, is rated no. 6 in the World and was the venue for the 1998 Presidents Cup. Australia’s foremost golf club, Royal Melbourne is home to two world-class golf courses – the Dr. Alister MacKenzie masterpiece, The West Course, unchallenged as the nation’s best for seventy years, and the excellent East Course designed by MacKenzie’s partner Alex Russell. The tournament hybrid, or Composite Course, is made up of 12 holes from the West and 6 from the East. A private club, open to members and invited guests only. Golf club members from overseas and interstate may apply. Contact us for more information.
Barnbougle Golf Course: Barnbougle is a links golf course unlike anything ever seen in Australia. You play between, over, and across towering dunes, where breathtaking views and thrilling golf provides a dramatic setting that is equal to the best links courses in the world. Steve Keipert, Australian Golf Digest in Jan 2005 said ‘Barnbougle is so jaw-droppingly spectacular that it will be love at first sight for even the most travelled golfer’. The course is strong enough to test the best players but fair enough to be joy for any player. Spectacular views and some of the greatest short holes in the world, it is an 18 holes championship links golf course whose layout and design equals the great courses of Britain and Ireland. Designed by American Tom Doak and Victorian Mike Clayton.
New South Wales Golf Club: Regarded as one of the top golf courses in Australia and currently rated number 34 in the world, NSW is a wonderful combination of undulating fairways, beautiful scenic vistas and a recently refurbished clubhouse which is a magnificent combination of traditional architecture and five star comfort. The NSW golf course is a links style championship course spectacularly located on the Pacific Ocean and on historic Botany Bay. Even when there is a gentle breeze prevailing the course will test the above average player with its tight fairways and testing greens. NSW Golf Club has also been compared to Pebble Beach. Though the fairways are ‘unmanicured’ and natural we are told that this course definitely has more and better ocean views than Pebble Beach. This is a ‘must’ for all discerning purist golfers.
Kingston Heath Golf Club: Kingston Heath Golf Club is one of Australia’s best golf courses. Ranked as the number two course in Australia and the 21st best course in the world, Kingston Heath enjoys an enviable reputation for its superb conditioning all year round. The 18 holes were built on only 125 hectares (most courses in the modern era are built on over 250 hectares), it is perfectly manicured and its bunkering and clever use of dips and hollows visually fools the non observant golfer. Many people would argue it is a more aesthetically pleasing course than Royal Melbourne, however if you wildly deviate from the fairway, the rough (comprising long grass, tea tree and sandy scrapes) will test your ability to get the ball back into play. Kingston Heath has hosted the Australian Open on 7 occasions in the last century with the most recent tournament in 2000 producing a result out of the ordinary.
