Review for Royal Melbourne (East)

Reviewer Score:


Not bad. Not RM West that's for sure and I am not really sure this is a Top 100 world course either having been lucky enough to play a number, especially in the US. The composite course holes are great. The 1st is a great way to start and 2 3 and 4 really test you as you go through a long uphill Par 4, short dog leg Par4 then long uphill Par 3. Wolds class opeing set of holes. Then once you cross the road it falls away quickly I think (and gets flat - too flat) other than the odd gem (like the Par 3 6th, Par 3 13th and absolutly wonderful short Par 4 15th). Crossing 3 sets of roads to get back to the main RM piece of land takes away from the experience. 17 and 18 are then a world class massive Par 5 and long Par 4 coming home (closing holes of the composite course). There are plenty of courses in Australia that don't get rated highly for whatever reason that are a better set of 18 holes.
