Reasons why Royal Melbourne is clearly the best course on the
*RM is routed on spectacular land, with a variety of holes that
test all aspects of a player's ability. By contrast,
Metropolitan is essentially flat, with most holes being difficult
primarily due to length.
*The holes at Royal Melbourne are exciting, subtle, and you
discover something new every time you play them. The holes at
Metropolitan are relatively benign, without the subtleties that
distinguish a good course from a great one.
*Metropolitan does not have the two best par 3's on the
sandbelt, 5 and 7W.
*Where does Metropolitan have a five-hole stretch as good as 3-7W

conditioned fairways, terrible greens and nothing else. Compare
with the thrilling design of Royal Melbourne, probably equal to
anything in the world.
