A jewel of the Melbourne Sandbelt, Kingston Heath enjoys an enviable reputation for its superb conditioning all year round. 

While most courses in the modern era are built on over 250 hectares, the 18 holes at Kingston Heath were built on only 125 hectares. The course is perfectly manicured. Its bunkering and clever use of dips and hollows fool the non-observant golfer. If you wildly deviate from the fairway, the rough (comprising long grass, tea tree, and sandy scrapes) will test your ability to get the ball back into play.

Since the 1948 Australian Open, Kingston Heath has regularly hosted national and international tournaments, including seven Australian Opens and one Women’s Australian Open. The club marked its centenary in 2009 with a new clubhouse and by staging the Australian Masters, won by Tiger Woods.
