2022 Rankings - Golf Digest Magazine
ROYAL MELBOURNE WEST remains entrenched at the top of the list, this gem of a design is possibly Mackenzie's best work, combined with a wondrous site, superb construction, and supreme conditioning. The Legend fairways have been presented by Superintendant Richard Forsyth to permit the ball to bounce and roll thus preserving the architect's intent, where the clever doglegs mitigate much of the long hitter's advantage. The firm fecue surrounds brilliantly enhance the fun of the running approach shot to greens that can be presented as the firmest and fastest in the world. As showcased to a global audience for the 2019 Presidents Cup, the course presented thrilling matches and superb shot-making by the world's best players without being humbled - yet remains playable for senior members throughout the year.
