Golf Courses

Commonwealth Golf Club

Glennie Avenue, Oakleigh South, VIC, 3167.
Region: Melbourne Sandbelt

Commonwealth Golf Club

Commonwealth Golf Club is a par 73 golf course which combines a collection of strong par 3 holes with mid to long par 4's and four par 5's - 2 of which are realistically reachable in 2. Commonwealth was, until recently, ranked in the Top 100 golf courses in the world. Why it fell out is anyone's guess but, with the plethora of new courses being developed worldwide each year, it is getting harder to maintain a position in this highly subjective list.

Par (Length): 73 (6380m)
Design: Sam Bennett (1921)
Top 100: 31

Huntingdale Golf Club

Windsor Avenue, Oakleigh South, VIC, 3167.
Region: Melbourne Sandbelt

Huntingdale Golf Club

Huntingdale is a private members course located in the middle of the world famous Melbourne Sandbelt. It was the host of the Australian Masters for 30 years and has hosted the world's best golfers.

Par (Length): 72 (6184m)
Design: Charles H. Alison (1941)
Top 100: 38

*Letter of introduction required


Kingston Heath Golf Club

Kingston Road, Cheltenham, VIC, 3192.
Region: Melbourne Sandbelt

Kingston Heath Golf Club

Kingston Heath Golf Club is universally regarded as one of the best manicured courses in Australia and arguably the world. Its strategic bunkering and clever use of dips and hollows fools the non observant golfer and any deviation from the fairway is generally met with a challenging recovery. The course was built on a compact parcel of land resulting in some of the best short par 4?s and world class par 3 holes.

Par (Length): 72 (6352m)
Design: Dan Soutar (bunkering by Alister Mackenzie) (1925)
Top 100: 2

*Letter of introduction required


The Metropolitan Golf Club

Golf Road, Oakleigh South, VIC, 3167.
Region: Melbourne Sandbelt

The Metropolitan Golf Club

Metropolitan Golf Club is one of Australia's premier golf courses. Tucked quietly in Melbourne's south eastern suburbs it is one of the renowned "sandbelt courses" and widely recognised as one of the finest golf courses in Australia. It has also been described as the Australian equivalent of Augusta National. The perfect fairways, marbletop greens and blindingly white bunkers all combine to offer a test of golf not seen previously in Australia. Metropolitan is a tough but fair test of golf.

Par (Length): 72 (6427m)
Design: J.B. Mackenzie (1906), Dick Wilson (1959) (1906)
Top 100: 10

*Letter of introduction required


The Royal Melbourne Golf Club (West Course)

Cheltenham Road, Black Rock, VIC, 3193.
Region: Melbourne Sandbelt

The Royal Melbourne Golf Club (West Course)

The Royal Melbourne Golf Club is a 36 hole private members club located in the heart of the world famous Melbourne Sandbelt golf region. The West Course is regularly rated as the number one rated golf course in Australia (and was recently ranked number 6 in the world) and was designed by world renowned golf course architect Dr Alistair MacKenzie. The natural peaks and troughs in the terrain have been used to maximum benefit with strategically designed and memorable holes throughout.

Par (Length): 72 (6030m)
Design: Alister MacKenzie (1931)
Top 100: 1

*Letter of introduction required


NOTE: A number of private golf clubs require that visitors have a registered handicap and are members of a recognised interstate or overseas golf club. Documentary proof is generally required. In such cases, GOLFSelect will request that each member of the group supplies a letter of introduction from his or her golf club. Golf clubs that have this requirement are listed with the comment "Letter of introduction required".

Client Testimonials
What a great trip! The arrangements you made for us were outstanding and we truly enjoyed all the accomodations and golf courses. Looking forward to returning to such a beautiful part of the world sometime soon.
Richard S, New York, USA
I am writing to thank you for the wonderful golf holiday that you put together for Paulina and me at very short notice. When we decided to make a visit to Melbourne we looked up websites and found yours. After contact I gave you a "wish list" of courses little expecting that you would be able to accommodate them all into a two week stay which amounted to us playing 17 different courses in 13 days. Your organisation was excellent, accommodation very adequate for the stay, and we were well
Thank you for your assistance in organising our US Masters tour and associated golf. In summary, we had a fantastic time. We really appreciated your assistance in advising on course selection, and timing of the trip - we couldn't have planned it without your assistance. Thanks again to you and your team for your assistance.
Tim M, Melbourne, Australia
To make a long story short: thanks a lot once again for the perfect planning of everything! The whole vacation was great and your preparation and execution of the itinerary was just the best I have experienced yet.
Kai M, Munich, Germany
I have had the good fortune to use GOLFSelect's services on two recent occasions. for a personal golf trip and for a foursome of over-the-hill alpha male choppers from Chicago Golf Club. This latter group has combined golf experience of nearly 200 years, enjoys regular play at their much-revered home course, has played great courses all over the world, and, quite naturally for quasi-retired geezers, expects everything to be perfect or better !!! Except for me, none had ever played golf in Australia. All were missing their anchovy-stuffed olives in Ketel One martinis and were just waiting for any excuse to bash me for having seduced them into traveling halfway around the world to play golf in a country they didn't know had any golf courses !!! Let's just say the margin for error was pretty slim !!! 10 days, 11 courses, 16 rounds and three very surprised and satisfied golfers returned as converts (not convicts) ! I, of course, was already a convert based on my previous outing. Gary and his people know the courses, know the people at the courses, understand the travel logistics and all the other details to package a perfect golf odyssey or single-day outing. He adds to that his genuinely personal and amiable service and he is always available to deal with the inevitable changes. I recommend GOLFSelect unequivocally!
