The Metropolitan Golf Club

Melbourne, Australia

Course Overview

Course Overview

Metropolitan enjoys a reputation as the best conditioned year round course in Australia.

Prior to the 1997 Australian Open Greg Norman described Metropolitan’s pure couch grass fairways as the best he had played on anywhere in the world. During the 2001 World Match Play Championship a number of the world’s top ranked players compared the condition of the course to Augusta National.

The bentgrass greens are large, firm and fast and are hand mown right to the edge of the greenside bunkers. In total there are 96 bunkers on the course and almost every hole is flanked by huge stands of Australian native trees which provide sanctuary to many species of native birds, including the noisy but beautiful sulphur crested Cockatoo and the multi coloured rainbow Lorikeet.

The Metropolitan Golf Club is a private golf club. Play is primarily restricted to members and their guests. Limited playing times are available to interstate and overseas visitors.

Playing times for visitors who are members of an interstate or overseas golf club are generally available on Monday morning or afternoon, Wednesday mornings, Thursday mornings and Friday mornings and afternoons.
