The East Course starts and finishes on the main site and is highlighted by seven ‘home paddock’ holes. The bunkering is superb while the greens, though smaller than the West’s, are as beautifully constructed and sloped.It incorporates some of the most dramatic undulation on the course, the short four, long four, and mid four start is brilliant with clear risk and reward options from the tee and birdie to double bogey possibilities. The closing stretch starts with the short par 4 15th and the heavily bunkered 16th, which is the flattest ‘home paddock’ hole of either course but one of the best and most underrated par 3s in Melbourne. The final two holes are famously used on the world-renowned Composite Course.

Royal Melbourne's East course is always going to live in the shadow of it's big brother the West course, there are great holes here in my opinion, mostly at the beginning and end of the round. Course was is good shape when I played there, greens running very true like you would expect them to on the sandbelt. Shot values score well here as do all the sandbelt course, the contours of this course are still of a very high standard. The resistance to scoring here at the east course is indeed fair and not to difficult, the fairways are wide enough, bunkers are in good condition to hit out of. Not that much elevation change at the east course but the routing is strong. The memorability at the east course is high as well, with great bunkering and green complexes meeting the golfer. Overall I enjoyed my day here immensely !!!!!!!!
