Royal Melbourne’s Presidents Cup Course is an amalgamation of the work of two great golf course architects, Dr 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). 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. Since that time a number of versions have been used in tournament play.

The Presidents Cup routing begins at 3 West with a new tee complex built to allow for a massive stand to be erected that will provide a huge amphitheatre for players and fans alike.  The 2019 Presidents Cup course incorporates the best holes in the “home paddock” combining to make a golf course of outstanding quality, with an intriguing mix of Scottish Links characteristics and rugged Sandbelt beauty.

The bold bunkering is visually spectacular while the rough areas around the tees and bunkers are a mix of native grasses which naturally frame each hole, providing great definition and contrast without distracting from the strategy. The greens are simply brilliant and for decades have consistently provided the finest putting surfaces in Australia. Large and beautifully contoured they are built to accommodate approaches from a number of angles with each progressively more difficult the further the tee shot strays from the perfect line.
