Topping out at 153 metres and slightly uphill, the 8th hole at Brighton Public Golf Course isn’t a long par-3 but finding the green is a tall order for many.

Brighton Public Golf Course is regarded as one of Melbourne’s best Public golf Courses, and regularly ranks in the Top 5 of Melbourne’s metropolitan public courses. Our location is one of our greatest assets – situated an easy 20 minute drive from the CBD, and in the heart of one of Melbourne’s most exclusive Bayside suburbs.

It is an all weather course catering to the average golfer, yet still provides a good test of golf for the more skilled. The holes are generally tight, and many greens are ringed by some of the best bunkering you will find on a Melbourne public golf course. This feature of the course bears testament to the fact that Brighton truly is a member of Melbourne’s famed sand-belt.

Horrible! Have played Royal Brighton dozens of times and this easily the worst condition I've seen it in. And for 30 bucks for 9 holes on the weekend, they are kidding themselves! 30 bucks for 9 doesn't worry me when the course is in even just an average condition, but the course is a disgrace. Tee boxes are like little mountain ranges with patches of grass here and there, there is grass in the rock hard bunkers, fairways have a nice covering of bare dirt, sand and some patches of dry grass. The greens were in pretty good condition though Wont be rushing back there.

Played this on the morning of New Years Eve (what ever we call that)and there wasn't too many on the course. Had a very enjoyable game, however, not a course for the golfing enthusiast. The course itself is short and designed for the Beginner or the guys like myself that only get out a few times a year. The front nine while very short (all of the par 3s I was either pulling out wedge or 8 iron) was quite enjoyable and holes like the 9th would not be out of place on better sandbelt courses. The back nine however was a bit monotonous with its similar length par 4s heading up and back. Don't over think it and you'll enjoy it, but don't expect that you're playing at Kingston Heath either.

Bit of a goat-track. I grew up on Royal Brighton as a kid and remembered it fondly. It seems to have shrunk in the past 20 years and they've swapped the 9s around. Don't bother playing between December and May - the fairways and tee boxes are in very ordinary condition. Greens are simple and in good condition but there are just too many drivable par 4s (with the tees forward, and fairways running like crazy I counted 7-8, some on the front 9 which you take a 3-4 hybrid) and all but 2 par 3s need a 80% pitching wedge. Bunkers are easy (notwithstanding the lack of sand). Front 9 was a very frustrating 2.5 hours - we were paired up with the worst type of hackers. Thankfully they only played 9. Back 9 was a more enjoyable 80 mins with nobody else around. Take it for what it is - a beginners course centrally located but if you're after speedy play, some golf etiquette and a good lie when you're in the middle of the fairway - give it a wide berth.

Fairways not in bad condition for Summer. However players don't repair pitch marks. Play is slow - over 5 hours on weekends. The back nine is up and down. Go to Sandringham instead.

Played this weekend and while its not a bad course it can be a bit short for longer hitters,one of our group put his ball through the green (off the tee) on a couple of holes and yes it did seem as if the bunkers were filled with concrete !other than that it was in pretty good nick. Major concern was the speed of the group in front of us,that refused to let us play through......and they were members,it took us over 5 and a half hours,ridiculous .

Played on sunday and was to the higer side of average. The big issue is the bunkers. They are well laid out and make for some decision making. Big problem with them is lack of sand, its like hitting out of the carpark, if thats not bad enougth, the amount of tree debris etc in them is not great. on the plus side, unlike some public courses, ie Yarra Bend, they send groups off at comfortable intervals. Playing in a group of 3 we were not held up by the 4 in front.
