Yarra Yarra Golf Club

Course Review

Description Established in 1898 Yarra Yarra is one of Melbourne's most prestigious golf club's, boasting an immaculately presented golf course and heritage listed Clubhouse where service is the focus for all members and guests. Yarra Yarra is one of the eight Melbourne Sandbelt golf courses, which collectively possess a worldwide reputation among golfers as being on the 'must play' list. The architect of this renowned Sandbelt course was Alex Russell who, in 1926, formed a partnership with the famed Dr Alister MacKenzie during his visit to Australia. Today, the course remains substantially the same as the original layout and like all great golf courses, has stood the test of time. In Tom Doak's 'Confidential Guide', a review of the architecture of the best courses in the World, the four Par 3's at Yarra Yarra are rated seventh (the only course in this category in the Southern Hemisphere). The 11th hole, described by Peter Thomson as a 'national treasure', is invariably in the experts' collections of the best 18 holes in Australia. The superb greens and bunkers are the highlight at Yarra Yarra and as good as many of MacKenzie's own creations. Typically large, fast and undulating, the greens feature some of the most extreme slopes in Melbourne, while the bunkers are constructed to blend naturally with their surrounds and are intrinsic to the strategy of each hole.
