Huntingdale Golf Club, located in the heart of Melbourne's world famous 'sandbelt' region is one of Australia's most prestigious private golf courses.

Rising to fame in 1979 with the inaugural hosting of The Australian Masters, Huntingdale has emerged as one of the most recognisable golf courses in Australia, and the world. Since 1979, Huntingdale has played host to some of the most famous names in world golf, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Seve Ballesteros, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, Geoff Ogilvy and Tiger Woods.

In 2008 Huntingdale celebrated the 30th consecutive year of hosting the Australian Masters and was justifiably recognised as 'Home of the Australian Masters'.

Consistently rated as one of the best golf courses in Australia, Huntingdale greets players with superbly manicured fairways, strategic fairway bunkering and large undulating greens. This combination of features at Huntingdale ensures this course challenges the best professionals and the latest technology. The greens at Huntingdale are true and fast and are generally kept in "Masters" condition throughout the year.  Players hitting wayward shots to the far side of the greens can anticipate long undulating putts. The final stretch of holes contain some of the toughest and finest finishing holes in the world.

Course Playing Tips

Hole 1, Par 4 (391 m)
A really crucial opening hole. Obviously you want to get off to a good start. Take a driver from the first tee and on a calm day this leaves me some 150 metres with a 7 iron second shot uphill. Keep to the right half of the green to avoid the bunkers on the left from which any shot is a difficult one.

Hole 2, Par 4 (322 m)
A 2 iron or rescue club off the tee favouring the left half of the fairway because you can be sure of getting around the corner, followed by a full wedge or easy 9 iron to the green which is surrounded by rebuilt and effective greenside bunkers. The green has also been rebuilt with interesting slopes and undulations.

Hole 3, Par 3 (169 m)
This two tier green is surrounded by deep bunkers, a straight shot is required with a mid to long iron from the tee.

Hole 4, Par 4 (362 m)
The fairway bunkers on the left, and the trees on the right, call for an accurate tee shot. The wide green offers variation to pin placements. The right side of the green is well guarded by bunkers while the left side is open for golfers wishing to play safely.

Hole 5, Par 3 (193 m)
This long par 3 slightly uphill demands accuracy with most good players using a long iron. The three tier green adds interest to putting and the greenside bunkers have this green well guarded.

Hole 6, Par 5 (515 m)
Driver down the left side of the fairway is the correct strategy on this long sweeping par 5. Longer hitters looking for the green in 2 shots must be sure to stay out of the fairway bunker on the right side of the fairway as a mid to short iron will be required to safely clear the front lip of the trap.

Hole 7, Par 5 (490 m)
Position on this hole is everything. You feel like you've dropped a shot if you have to settle for a par. Take a driver from the tee, which usually leaves a 3 or 4 iron to the green.

Hole 8, Par 4 (314 m)
Take on the hole with driver and leave yourself a small wedge in, or take the safe route and hit rescue or an iron from the tee. Either way, stick to the right half of the fairway and avoid the fairway bunker. Take careful note of the pin position so as not leave yourself an impossible putt on a very difficult green.

Hole 9, Par 4 (378 m)
One of the toughest holes on the course. With no wind take a driver or 3 wood from the tee which leaves a 7 or 8 iron to the green. Once again the centre of the green is the target.

Hole 10, Par 5 (453 m)
Like the 7th, I feel a 5 here is a bogey. A good drive, skirting the fairway bunker, leaves a 2 or 3 iron to the green where you tend to aim front right. There is less trouble in that right hand corner.

Hole 11, Par 4 (400 m)
A drawn tee shot runs past the traps on the right leaving an 8 iron approach which must carry the left-hand traps. Also one of the most difficult greens to putt.Most players would cheerfully take 4 here every time.

Hole 12, Par 3 (161 m)
Aim for the centre of the green on this deeply bunkered par 3 as the green is long and narrow. Club selection can vary from 4 iron to 8 iron depending on tee location and wind direction.

Hole 13, Par 4 (318 m)
Play to a position in front of the first bunker on the right side of the fairway to eliminate the potential score blowouts that can arise from a encounter with the water hazard. From here use a mid iron to approach to a green that is angled away from the fairway and surrounded on both sides by very deep bunkers.

Hole 14, Par 5 (555 m)
A challenging "600 + yard" par 5. A careful second shot is required to the undulating fairway which has trees and a carefully positioned fairway bunker on the right hand side and a new water hazard on the left. A large green awaits the approach with 4 or 5 difficult flag placements available to test the players.

Hole 15, Par 3 (141 m)
A totally different hole with water very apparent on the left. The green is large with great variety in it's undulations. There are deep bunkers on the right and when the wind gets up it will play havoc with the shot to the green. Putting will be especially demanding on this green with several testing flag placements available.

Hole 16, Par 4 (351 m)
A markedly different proposition off the tee. The bunker in the centre of the fairway will make the player on the tee think. A driver up the right half will usually be best. The prevailing wind will have a big influence on the strategy adopted as will the player's position in the event. A real "Risk and Reward" proposition. The greenside bunkers are wonderful.

Hole 17, Par 4 (425 m)
A totally different feeling on the tee with the opening up of the fairway. A driver with a fade can be played with greater ease but the water will be easily reached down breeze. Another large rolling green awaits a mid iron approach to a difficult putting surface.

Hole 18, Par 4 (410 m)
One of golf's toughest finishing holes. Excellent fairway bunkering left and deep scrub on the right make this a treacherous driving hole. Swales and hollows through the back will very much be in play and more demands will be placed on the accuracy of shots to the large undulating green.
