i can only comment on SA 1. royal adelaide 2. links lady bay (played a few times in both seasons and its tough) 3. kooyonga (can go low but the course punishes your bad shorts somthing chronic) 4. grange (east and west). always breezy which makes club selection hard, the new east is going to be a gem. played 4 of the new holes and they are tough. the approach to the par 5 3rd is a tough shot. 5.mt osmond This is just my opinion, i have left out glenelg because i just dont think its that hard. Id rate sandy creek,flaggy,mt gambier and even the front 9 at echunga more testing. Mt compass in the wetter months can be a test aswell

Huntingdale has a slope rating of 138. Pretty sure that is the highest of all the Sandbelt clubs. I believe The National (Old Course) is the highest in Vic in the low 140s.

Are the slope ratings publicly available?

Played National Old just before club champs this year and it was very tough. New South Wales and Barnbougle Dunes in a wind is also tough. Mt Broughton off the tips was tough.

NSW best course on Mainland and toughest in a heavy wind.
