Description:Royal Melbourne's two courses, the East Course and the West Course, are each ranked amongst the best in the world. Royal Melbourne has hosted numerous national and international events, most famously the 1959 Canada Cup, the 1970 World Cup and the 1998 and 2011 Presidents Cup. Royal Melbourne is the only golf club, outside the United States of America, to be selected by the PGA tour to host the Presidents cup more than once.
The golf courses were designed by Dr Alistair MacKenzie (West Course) and Alex Russell (East Course) and are classic in their design. There are a number of key features of Royal Melbourne - tea tree scrub lining the fairways, cavernous bunkers surrounding most greens and also placed strategically on most fairways to catch a slightly wayward drive and lightning fast greens that give up their fair share of 3 putts.
The courses are not suitable for beginners. The maximum handicap applying for men is 36 and women 45.
