    Royal Melbourne is one of the world's greatest championship courses, an amalgamation of the work of two great golf course designers, Alister Mackenzie and Alex Russell. The Composite Course came into being in 1959 when Royal Melbourne was asked to hold the World Cup (known as the Canada Cup at that time).

    Royal Melbourne's two courses are known as the 'West' and 'East' courses. It was decided to use 12 holes from the West Course and 6 holes from the East Course for the World Cup, and hence the Composite Course was born.

    The result is a golf course of outstanding quality, with an intriguing mix of Scottish Links characteristics and Augusta National style beauty. The course also has the reputation for having possibly the fastest putting greens in the world. The course is also famous for its large and dramatically shaped bunkers.

    The course is ranked amongst the best in the world by numerous international golf course ranking bodies and publications.

    Royal Melbourne has hosted numerous international events and was selected by the US PGA Tour to hold the Presidents Cup, held for the first time outside the United States, in 1998.
