Melbourne Sandbelt, Australia






September – May

Australia’s tightest-packed collection of championship courses can be found in the Sandbelt region just southeast of the Melbourne city-center. This is where the great Alistair MacKenzie did his best work Down Under and several of the courses have hosted the world’s top players on numerous occasions including at the 2019 President’s Cup, which was played at Royal Melbourne. There is perhaps no better place in the world to experience and appreciate  the nuances of great golf course architecture.

What You Can Expect:

This itinerary keeps you in the Melbourne area throughout, as there is enough good golf in South Victoria to last you a month or more. The focus here is on the historic courses in the Melbourne Sandbelt, with five rounds all within a few square miles about a half an hour southeast of the Melbourne city-center. We have also included St. Andrews Beach, a bit further south but our favorite links on the Mornington Peninsula.

We recommend visiting Australia during their summer from December to February when the weather is warmest. Alternatively, the fall (March – May) and Spring (September – November) are relatively warm with highs in the 60s (F) and allow you to avoid the summer crowds, especially November and March.
Our vehicles and custom itineraries fit group’s of all sizes so there is no perfect group size. The larger the group, though, the earlier you will need to book your trip to ensure availability.
Absolutely. Should you choose to have the services of a driver, they will be available to the non-golfers while the golfers are at the course, meaning a fairly full sightseeing itinerary is feasible in conjunction with any golfing itinerary.
The easy answer is: the earlier the better. Let’s be a bit more specific though. Hotels and golf course tee sheets begin to fill up for the busy peak season 3-6 months in advance. To ensure optimal tee time availability, we recommend booking at least 6 months out.
