According to local lore, Royal Melbourne's composite course may be the world's greatest, but there is no better course in Melbourne itself than Kingston Heath. Though not overly lengthy at 6352 meters, the course still presents one of the great tests in golf. The preliminary design constructed in 1905 received the Alister MacKenzie touch some twenty years later, when the master added some of his renowned bunkers and set the stage for the stunning vision that is the contemporary Kingston Heath. No two holes here are the same, though the longer ones are mainly doglegs; MacKenzie's bunkers and tea tree groves demand that all golfers consider their shots carefully, and they can expect to use every club. Beware especially the 3rd, one of the world's best short par 4s; accomplished golfers will find it drivable, though the grueling small green that awaits discourages most from even trying.

No. 2 ranked course in Australia and for good reason. Beautifully designed by Soutar and MacKenzie in 1925. From the moment I entered the front gate, to having my bag taken to the pro shop, to receiving wonderful token gifts and a photo from the staff of me standing at the starters box to a beer at the end of my round, all the hype surrounding 'the Heath is justified. Absolutely perfect day had on the 2nd best course in Australia in my opinion! No wonder it's held every major golfing event :) It's easy to walk around this course that sits on such a rich sandy base. Not a lot of elevation change to this course as is the case with most of the sandbelt courses, but the routing and design of the holes are what makes it truly world class. The course has great holes everywhere, no more so than on the run home, at the 142m Par 3 15th, design heaven is seen from every angle. The bunkering at KH is outstanding in terms of design and the quality of each one, good depth, quality of sand. This is only one of the dangers as the razor edge greens attached to them play generally very quick with bunker to bunker shots more than likely if the golfer gets it wrong. Undulating and great sized greens make for the beautiful make up of this world class course. Tys.

This is a great course. I was lucky enough to see the recent World Cup of Golf played at Kingston Heath; course was in awesome condition and the players just raved about it. At 6800 yds its not the longest course but there is not one weak hole on this course.
