Australia's best and most established course by a mile - world class. Deserves it's Top 20 status and being a Melburnian and having been lucky enough to play a lot of the worlds best golf courses including all of those on Long Island, NY and Pine Valley etc this stacks up with the best of them. Shinnecock and Pine Valley better but RM has it all over places like Winged Foot, Bethpage, Merion, etc for pure greens, bunkering, shot selection and some of the best Par 3s (#5 and #7) short Par 4's (especially #3 and #10) and great blind long Par 4s (#6, #11, #17 and #18 for sure). The need to cross a main road to play 4 holes sux and is the main thing that keeps this from a Top 10 in my view.
