Local engineer J. B. MacKenzie, doing his work in 1908, was only the first to put a stamp on the Metro. Alister MacKenzie is responsible for the special feel of the course here, as is the case with numerous courses in the Sandbelt region of Melbourne. Dick Wilson came from America to help the club adapt to the expanding suburbs, and in the past few years Mike Clayton has also made a contribution. The first six holes alone establish the place of the Metro among the great Sandbelt courses. Since 1930 the course has hosted numerous Australian Opens; after winning in 1936, Gene Sarazen declared a special attachment to the 14th hole. The Metro and its neighbors just have what it takes to keep the world's top golfers coming to play. MacKenzie's bunkers, which are still mowed by hand, defend greens of which the club is rightfully especially proud.

I am here for the World Cup or Golf. The course is truly in incredible conditions right now. It's a traditional sandbelt golf course here which means that there are superbly manicured fairways as well as a lot of beautifully executed bunkers that cut into the edges of the firm and fast greens.

We played Metropolitan immediately after course maintenance so sadly didn’t see it at its best, as I understand it is normally in amazing condition. Fun to play & some excellent holes. Would like to play again.
