New South Wales
New South Wales (NSW) is one of the most spectacular courses in Australia and it’s one of the toughest tests of golf in the country. Initially Dr Alister MacKenzie designed New South Wales in 1928. MacKenzie was responsible for probably the most famed cliff-top ocean course in all of world golf, Cypress Point in the USA – and twelve months later he created the layout here at La Perouse. The NSW course overlooks Botany Bay, where Captain James Cook first sailed in to Australia in 1770. The course was built some 150 years later with the assistance of another famous architect, Eric Apperly, who was largely responsible for the bunkering and ensuring that MacKenzie's vision became a reality
The Australian Golf Club, founded in 1882 and set in the centre of Sydney’s busiest industrial area, is the oldest golf club still in existence in Australia. It moved to its present location at Kensington in 1903 and Dr Alister MacKenzie was commissioned to update the Australian layout. Sloan Morpeth performed further revisions and then Jack Nicklaus completely redesigned the course under the finance of Kerry Packer in 1976 to what is now the current championship livery. Host to no fewer than nineteen Australians Opens, the first and inaugural Australian Open was played here in 1904 and most recently in 2015.
Royal Melbourne Golf Course
The origins of Royal Melbourne date back to 1891 when a group of prominent Melbournians formally introduced the Royal and Ancient game to Victoria by establishing the Melbourne Golf Club on leased land near an inner-city railway station. As urban encroachment threatened, the search for a permanent home brought the club to the heathland scrub of Sandringham in the city's south. What they uncovered among the undulating sand dunes was the ideal location for their new links. Much has been written on the qualities of its West Course but put simply it is the combination of great land, great design and great construction. Indeed it is certainly hard to imagine that the game of golf gets any better than Royal Melbourne
Kingston Heath Golf Course
Kingston Heath is one of Australia's best golf courses and consistently ranks in the top 50 courses in the world. The course is renowned for its natural approaches created by its superbly crafted greens and stupendous bunkering. The combination of this ageless design has helped Kingston Heath remain a supreme test of one’s golfing smarts. In 2010 it was rated by Australian Golf Digest as the premier course in Australia, qualifying it as the most outstanding course in terms of layout, shot making, condition and strategy. It is also the preferred Australian venue of the R&A for the staging of International Final Qualifying for The Open Championship, held each year in January.
Victoria Golf Club
Perfectly located little more than a wedge from Royal Melbourne, the layout created is outstanding with a collection of fine holes falling beautifully across a naturally rolling landscape that is somewhat reminiscent of its famous neighbor, albeit on a slightly smaller scale. Long regarded as one of Australia’s elite courses, Victoria exists today as a tribute to the hardworking pioneers who laid the club’s foundations and the divine contribution of Dr MacKenzie who helped shape a very good course into a truly great one.
Metropolitan Golf Course
Tucked away quietly in Melbourne’s southeast, just fifteen minutes from the CBD, The Metropolitan Golf Club is one of the renowned Sandbelt courses and for almost a century has been regarded as one of the finest championship courses in Australia. Over the years the course has moved with the demands of the times and staged its first Australian Open in 1930, after modifications suggested by the famous Scottish course architect Dr Alister MacKenzie in 1926. With magnificent plantings and some of the purest couch fairways and bent grass greens on the planet, a round at Metro is an exceptional experience. The Metropolitan Golf Club was the host of the 2014 Australian Masters.
The golf course at Barnbougle Dunes runs along this shore, in between a wide complex of dunes that extend behind it. On this pristine coastline, 80kms north of Launceston, architects Tom Doak and Michael Clayton have designed Australia’s best seaside test. Doak, paired here with Victorian professional and designer Mike Clayton, is a well-travelled and cerebral architect and accents his courses with idiosyncrasies drawn from the world’s classic courses. Elements of these are present here, not in a Las Vegas style pastiche, but in a much more indirect manner in which the course is laid out in sympathy to the twists, humps and folds manifested by the retreat of the sea over thousands of years and the action of the prevailing winds. Barnbougle Dunes is the closest thing to a seaside links as exists in Australia. The holes are routed through the dunes, some as high as 100 feet
Barnbougle Lost Farm is a 20 hole Links Golf course on Tasmania’s North East Coast. Officially opened on 10 December 2010, Lost Farm sits adjacent to The Dunes, which opened in December 2004. Designed and built by world-renowned US golf course design company Coore & Crenshaw, Lost Farm has quickly captured the attention of international golfers of all abilities. Within a week of opening, Lost Farm was rated in the top 10 courses in Australia by Golf Australia Magazine, and also entered U.S. Golf Magazine’s Top 100 List. The course is now positioned firmly as one of the icons in Australia’s golfing crown, rated #3 in Australia by Australian Golf Magazine. With a reputation for minimalistic course design and a philosophy that traditional, strategic golf is the most rewarding, head architect Bill Coore created Lost Farm to compliment the natural layout of the land.
Cape Wickham Links - Construction of the course was completed in late 2015, under the watchful eye of co-designers Mike DeVries (USA) and Darius Oliver (AUS), and quickly gained international recognition in the world rankings. Since then avid golfers have continued to travel from all around the globe to visit King Island in order to experience Cape Wickham Links for themselves. Every hole on the course has an ocean view, which is extremely rare, and no 2 holes are the same. The undulating course normally plays firm, allowing the imagination to go wild with limitless shot-making possibilities. Tees, Fairways and Greens are all seeded with fescue grass, following in the footsteps of the old traditional links courses in Scotland and Ireland
Ocean Dunes incorporates a challenging 18-hole course, set amidst rolling dunes, and features unsurpassed views along two kilometres of majestic, King Island coastline – land made for golf, and reminiscent of the links of Scotland and Ireland. With 360-degree ocean views on nearly every hole, highlights include two spectacular par 3's that cross the surging ocean, plus a number of exciting, risk-and-reward, short par 4's. The 'inland' holes follow the coastal creek that flows through the course
