Royal Melbourne Golf Club | black rock
Rua Cheltenham, Black Rock, 3193
The Royal Melbourne calls itself the pinnacle of golf in Australia and, to be honest, it's hard to disagree with that statement. In fact, Royal Melbourne has two full 18-hole golf courses, East and West, the latter of which is regularly voted the best golf course in Australia by the Australian Golf Digest.
The world-famous course is Australia's oldest and the first non-American course chosen to host the PGA President's Cup. Of course, if you live in the south and love golf, playing here is a must on your bucket list.
Clube de golfe Kingston Heath | Heatherton
Rua Kingston, Cheltenham, 3192
Not content with consistently being ranked No. 2 on lists of Australia's best golf clubs, Kingston Heath bills itself as the sandiest in the country. An incredible 128 bunkers line the course and surround nearly every green, meaning you'll likely spend more time in the sand than David Hasselhoff, in the words of great marksman McGavin.
However, Kingston Heath has hosted the Australian Open seven times, hosted several iterations of the Australian Masters and is ranked in the top 20 on Golf Digest's ranking of the top 100 golf courses in the world.
Brighton-Golfplatz | Brighton
230 Calle Dendy, Brighton, 3186
It may seem strange to rank a $30 course among some of Australia's most exclusive golf clubs, but we are not elitists here and believe that Melbourne's best courses belong to more than those who have a wardrobe of jackets, tuxedos and pants. .
Brighton has all the hallmarks of a sand course, with bunkering on almost every green, no intimidation and priced to suit all levels of play.
Club de Golf Victoria | Cheltenham
Parque Carretera, Cheltenham, 3192
Victoria Golf Club was designed by Oscar Damman and Bill Meade with assistance from Dr. Alister MacKenzie, dean of the architecture course. The par 72 golf course has been the site of many famous events over the years, including the Australian Open and Australian Women's Open and even hosted President George Bush Sr. for a round in 1998. If that isn't a synopsis , we don't know what it is.
Ranfurlie Golf Club | Cranbourne
825 Cranbourne Frankston Road, Cranbourne, 3977
Not only is Ranfurlie one of the best public courses in Australia, it's one of the best courses in Australia overall, period. Ranfurlie combines traditional links design with sandbelt golf which, as you might have guessed, means lots of bunkers. You can join Ranfurlie as a member to play whenever you like, but on certain days of the week it is open to almost anyone to enjoy premium golf on a tight budget.
The Metropolitan Golf Club | South Oakleigh
Carretera de Golf, Oakleigh South, 3167
Everything about the Metropolitan exudes elegance, including its name. However, it has done more than enough to earn its air of exclusivity, from being a multiple host of the Australian Open to repeated placements in the top 20 of Golf Digest's top 100 Australian courses. In 1997 at the Metropolitan, Greg Norman lost a sudden-death playoff by putting three putts on the last green. We've all been there.
Sanctuary Lakes Golf Club | Sanctuary Lakes
70 Greg Norman Drive, Point Cook, 3030
Sanctuary Lakes was designed by Greg Norman and is located on Greg Norman Drive. It is a great homage to the great white shark. Golf Australia named it the best course open to the public in Melbourne, making Sanctuary Lakes an ideal stop for most people willing to pay a little extra in the name of a reasonably rewarding day of golf.
Located just 20 minutes from the CBD, it has all the facilities of a championship circuit, including a full driving range. We all know you're going to enjoy the first ride of the day anyway.

3167 Glennie Avenue, Oakleigh South
Just down the street from the Metropolitan is the Commonwealth Golf Club, a member of the Seven Sisters and a true benchmark for Sandbelt golf. If you are visiting Melbourne by road or from abroad, it is comparatively easy (and cheap) to get to Melbourne compared to its neighbours, although as always you must be a member of a club in the state or country you are visiting. live.
Sandringham Golf Course | Black Rock
Cheltenham Road, Cheltenham, 3192
All of Sandringham is a respectable golf course, despite the affordable green fees. Ideal for young golfers, seniors and virtually anyone who wants to enjoy golfing in Melbourne, Sandringham's design emphasizes shot selection and skill above all else. It's challenging, interesting, one of the best public courses in Melbourne and very, very good value for money.
Yarra Yarra Golf Club | Ost-Bentleigh

Cross the Commonwealth Highway a short distance from the Metropolitan and Kingston Heath and you will find Yarra Yarra. The four-hole par 3 Yarra Yarra is consistently ranked among the finest examples of golf course architecture in the Southern Hemisphere and around the world.
If for some reason you decide not to play all the other world famous courses that share the same Yarra Yarra zip code then you definitely won't be disappointed.
