Course Overview

Please note: Course is currently under renovation.

Royal Melbourne was formed in 1893 and The Australian in 1882. Other clubs were formed in these early years but are now defunct. For seven years (1888-1895) The Australian had no golf course. This has led to the claim that Royal Melbourne is the oldest club in Australia. However, The Australian never ceased to exist as a club and today its members still play for the oldest golf trophy in Australia, the Cadogan Cup, presented to the club in 1884 by an English visitor, C.H. Cadogan.

 

Bear Facts

In 1976, Jack Nicklaus was asked to alter the course to increase the difficulty in preparation for the Australian Open.
