King of the sandbelt courses
Aug 2020
Royal Melbourne is a championship course. The club was founded in 1891, and is known as "sandbelt course.". It has hosted many Australian and international tournaments. Royal Melbourne is a private club, but it has reciprocal arrangdments with other clubs overseas. The dress code is sensiible and not out of line with normal golf wear. The 19th hole is inviting, dress worn on the links is standard..

Poor fairway and green quality

We played a nine & dine and the conditions of the fairways were pretty poor. On some holes you have more bunkers than fairways. The prices for green fee and club renting have been moderate. The restaurant and pro shop are fabulous.

The best course in the world!!

The greens are the toughest I've ever played. It won't beat you up with length but is the most demanding approach course I've ever seen. Greens were perfect and very firm, hope to play again in my lifetime

The greens are fast
Nov 2016 • Business
I attended a golf function played at Royal Melbourne West Course. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. As you would expect from Australia's No1 course this place is the golf heaven. The extensive practice facilities are superb, allowing you to practice every element of the game. The course itself is spectacular. The fairways are inviting and quite easy to get a drive off. The trouble comes around the greens. Most are protected by many many bunkers. If you are not in a bunker and you choose a chip and run be careful. The ball runs and runs and easily finds its way off the green. When you do get on the green the real fun begins. They are fast!
The Clubhouse is magnificent. The facilities re first class. For and drink are of a high standard. The names on the honour boards is worthwhile taking some time to look at.
I hope to be lucky enough to play here again.

Beautiful for a wedding
Oct 2016 • Friends
We attended a friends wedding here on a Saturday and would recommend this place for anyone's wedding! Unfortunately it was really windy so the ceremony was moved indoors and the staff were able to cater for it so easily. In between the ceremony and reception we were able to purchase drinks at a lovely bar which opened out onto a giant deck with lots of tables and chairs (great for smokers). The reception room was very big and the staff were lovely. The food was delicious and arrived in a timely matter. All of the bathrooms were clean and neat as well as there being a beautiful outdoor area to enjoy the night sky (again great for smokers). It was very easy to find this place and not a lot of setting up is required as it is so beautiful. Very easy place to find. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a great place for your wedding! Thanks again to the RMGC for everything!

Celebrating their 125th anniversary

An amazing week of golf, interesting company, awesome food and hospitality
We played the East and West courses enjoyed both very much. The last day I played with an ex club champion and she was extremely helpful on saying exactly where to hit particularly on your approaches to the greens. The greens are quick !
The food was outstanding - the buffet on the first night had so much choice it was mind blowing. If you get the opportunity to play here don't hesitate the staff and facilities are the best you won't be disappointed
