I have never played the west course, so this is all I have to go on, but Victoria is a better track. The holes at RM East you start and finish, 1 to 4 and 16 to 18 are simply superb and amongst the best collection of short par fours, two classic threes and possibly the best finishing hole in Australia. All of them have been part of the composite course and six currently are. However, once you cross the road the course becomes a little flat and mundane, albeit well designed, excellent condition but not inspirational. That was a bit of a letdown. especially after the first four holes. Perhaps it was just that I had such high expectations, but I felt I would have been happy to play those 7 holes three times rather than the whole 18.
