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.
After a morning round in Melbourne Royal West, we moved to Metropolitan in the afternoon. Here again, I had a fabulous time on this course that is one of the very best manicured courses in the country, even in the world! Tee boxes, fairways and greens are perfect but bunkers are really out of this world! Truly taking advantage of that Melbourne Sandbelt. Having a drink at the new amazing clubhouse is a must! Really thinking about spending more time in Melbourne in the future...
Metropolitan is quite simply one of the best courses in Australia, beautifully manicured fairways are a treat to the golfer upon standing to address their shot.
Pure couch fairways with large landing areas are kept in pristine condition all year round, fast bent grass greens are hand mown to the edges of the outstanding greenside bunkers which are those ones found typically on the Melbourne Sandbelt, they're a real treat.
Enjoy the opportunity to play here if it comes your way :)
