Royal Melbourne Golf Club
(Composite Course)
This course is playable in firm/fast challenging conditions but you will need some imagination. The course could always do with some tweaking and has a few clones but with a new golf game and program on the horizon I decided to release it.

Thanks to Andrew Jones, Rob Miller, Daniel Watson, Peter Beckwith and Wayne Hewitt.

CLIPNOTES by Ben Bateson (ousgg)

Real, heathland course
There are a few awkward pin placements where you should stick to M*/F*
Concept  10/10
A terrific Australian scrubland course, Melbourne is expertly crafted across largely flat terrain. With demanding hole lengths, wellshaped and natural fairways, and excellent bunker placement – not to mention the punishing bushland rough – it lays more than adequate claim to being Australia’s premier course and is regularly voted as one of the best in the world. Peter’s expertise of Down Under courses has meant that we finally have a Links version to be proud of.
Appearance  8/10
An excellent texture set and Peter’s usual delightful touch with the planting are absolutely perfect for the region, and the isolation of the course is really brought across well. Unfortunately, there are still a few extrusion marks remaining on the course, and the bunkers seem to have an inconsistent feel, featuring several uncharacteristic sharp edges and bunker lips which aren’t always suitable.
Playability  9/10
A championship-standard layout, Melbourne manages to swerve the dullness of similar courses, with a range of challenges required on all shots. The unusual layout, full of long-iron and mid-wood shots, is ripe for attacking, and the thrill of landing one of these unlikely long shots is a major factor in keeping you going.
Challenge  10/10
It can’t be understated what a well-balanced and tiptoe game is to be had at Melbourne, and the combined punishments of the rough and outstanding hole design are a dual threat. Battling through for par is very much the norm, and hence the course achieves its objectives.
Technical  9/10
There are still a few areas on the course with an unfinished feel, which is unfortunate. Having said that, Peter has impressed yet again with some outstanding natural planting and the creation of a perfect environment.
Overall One of the world’s best courses, made over in exactly the way it deserves. 46/50
