Media: Australia’s Top 100 Courses 2012

Australian Golf Digest releases its biennial list of the country’s top 100 courses. For the first time Royal Melbourne (West Course) topped the 2012 list.

The East Course had topped every list up until 2010, when the honour went to Kingston Heath, which hosted the 2009 Australian Masters won by Tiger Woods.

However, Royal Melbourne returned to the top of the latest rankings relegating Kingston Heath to second ahead of Ellerston (NSW), Barnbougle Dunes (Tasmania) and Sydney’s NSW Golf Club.

  1. Royal Melbourne West (Vic)
