What a course! Having played both the Heath and Royal Melbourne West recently, I would have to say that Kingston Heath won me over. While Royal Melbourne has the space, the tricked up greens, the beautiful undulating fairways and some incredibly designed holes (and it deservedly holds the number one course ranking in Australia), I'd rather play Kingston Heath on a regular basis. The main reasons being the presentation of the course, absolutely immaculate. If you hit the fairways, it's like you are hitting off carpet. The greens are fast and true. The par 3's are a joy to play, and the par 4 third and sixth (with a beautiful view back to the clubhouse are two of my favourite holes. The key with the Heath is hitting straight to position. I can't think of many better closing holes on a course than 15-18. Practice facilities are the best I have ever seen.

I played here today in corporate day. What a classy place. I will admit I have only been playing proper golf for 4mths so havent played anything to compare this to apart from Natadola Bay in Fiji, which isnt in Kingston Heaths league at all. The fairways are just sublime, like green plush pile carpet. I was surprised how wide a lot of the fairways were. And the first cut of rough is not to bad. This course does you with doglegs on a lot of the par 4s. So its here where good golfers have a chance to take the course on by being able to shape the ball as the hole requires. Greens were super fast and its tough to pull up your approach shot on anything longer than a 6 iron i found. Clubhouse is awesome and so was the service. THe locker rooms/change facilities were more like a 5 star hotel than a place of sport.

Played here yesterday in the state final of the race to cypress lakes on a perfect day for golf. The course is clearly one of the best in the world and deserves every compliment. The design is almost perfect with a challenge on every hole and the last 4 holes will chew you up and spit you out if your not careful. The clubhouse is swish, the service fantastic the facilities first class. All in all, this was an absolute pleasure. I can see why Tiger was persuaded to come and play now.

I will preface this by stating that my review is undoubtedly biased by the condition of the course. Major renovation works were being carried out, fairways cored and top dressed, re-contouring of certain areas and laying of grass. That being said, I was not made aware of these works when I booked for a $165 charity game. The clubhouse is beautiful and the amenities sublime. The course is short and easily navigated by a very good golfer. However it can also be an absolute pain if you don't hit it straight every time. In 40km/h winds our group had a very easy 71 (+3), a relatively easy 90 (13), a horrid 105 (12) and an unimaginable 130+ (21) with a visit back to the pro shop to buy more balls. I will give it another try when I am certain in it's in appropriate condition, however on first glance (and taking my bias aside) I rate several in Australia higher.

After having the privlige of playing it for a second time yesterday during the Vic Fourball Competition, I now have a deeper appreciation and love for this little course. Every hole gives you a different challenge from the short par-3s to the brutally long par-4s. Conditioning is first class as you would expect with some of the truest rolling greens you will likely putt on. Just be prepared for a hairy ride on those slick downhill putts. Golf is an easy game, hit the drive into the fairway, the next shot onto the green and putt a couple of times. But it's the risk-reward dilemma which elevates this from a public course. It is not an automatic driver off the tee nor do you automatically go for the green and risk going into the deep bunkers which surround most greens. Sometimes the safe option is the best option and those who play conservatively will probably have the lowest score. But by golly it is tempting to pull out the big boy and try and carry the bunkers at the 250m mark. Coupled with perfect weather, it really was the closest thing I've felt to "golfing heaven". People quickly forget that the reason Tiger Woods came all the way to Australia was to play KH, not for the $3mil pocket money. That pretty much says it all.

Played there on a junior day. Surprising amount of run on the fairway which gives you an extra 15m on all drives. Amazing fairways to hit off. Spongey but tough. The dog legs will catch you if not careful. Evil bunkering on the 15th especially, although i managed an up and down from the far right of the right bunker.
