Melbourne is a real royal affair for golfing enthusiasts
February 5, 2016
It takes a pretty serious player to fly to the other side of the world to get their golfing fix, but the land down under is widely considered to house some of the world’s finest golf courses. If you can’t decide which part of Australia to pick for your golfing destination, we can point you in the right direction. Melbourne’s famous ‘sand belt’ – a stretch of land enriched with heaven-sent soil for golf, combined with its delightful weather, make it an excellent choice if you want to experience the holiday of a lifetime.
Sitting within this revered sand belt in Black Rock, Victoria, is the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, one of Melbourne’s leading golf institutions. Achieving royal status is no mean feat, and the club boasts two excellent courses; the West Course and the East Course. Endowing it with an almost iconic status, the West Course was created on the advice of the R&A, who commissioned skilled golfing architect, Dr. Alistair Mackenzie to design the layout – resulting in what most golfing aficionados would deem as near to perfection. The East Course, while sitting in the shadow of its neighbouring course, still boasts some remarkable holes, particularly the par 3s, as well as benefitting from the excellent turf of the sand belt.
Nearby, the majestic Kingston Heath Golf Club rivals Royal Melbourne for the number one golfing spot in the area. Also spanning the esteemed sand belt and designed by Mackenzie, this course utilizes the natural environment to amazing effect. Astute bunkering and stretches of white sand surround the lush greens and fairways, as well as some charming par 4s and shorter holes.
Once you’ve exhausted the courses, why not round it all off with a relaxing evening beside the magnificent Pacific coastline. Just a short distance from Melbourne, the fashionable St Kilda is one of the hippest and most picturesque points of the bay. If chilled out street bars, funky cafes and beachside hangouts are your thing then this is the place for you. One of our favorites is Laidback: Donovans, where you can relax with a glass of Australia’s finest and enjoy the scenic ocean views – even a certain Miss Minogue has been known to frequent the funky venue.
