Welcome to my blog. 

Royal Melbourne

I played here in 2013 with a business colleague, Andrew McK. delightful host, just what I needed after  along flight in from LA. Admittedly, I flew on the A380, pretty new and an amazingly comfortable - and big - aircraft.

Mighty large plane.

Me at the Club. Fantastic golf course.

Me at the Club. Fantastic golf course.

This is from the Club's website:

The Club was founded in 1891 and has been host to numerous national and international tournaments.  We have a proud reputation of providing Members and guests with a friendly, welcoming and inclusive experience.

Our golf courses and renowned hospitality provide Members with world class facilities for golf whilst enjoying fellowship and camaraderie with their guests.

Our courses are maintained consistent with the principles espoused by Dr Alister MacKenzie. The generous fairways and fast and firm conditions provide good challenges for both low and high handicap players.

I don't recall much about the course at all: i was so jet lagged from the journey in fro The States. I do recall difficult bunkers and taking a little while to realize the course was measured in meters not years...
