The Royal Melbourne Invitational

22 - 24 April 2024


On behalf of the Members of The Royal Melbourne Golf Club, it gives me great pleasure to invite two representatives from your Club to the Royal Melbourne Invitational, which will be held on 22, 23 and 24 April 2024.


We are delighted to showcase and share our golf courses, and the Club more broadly. The Invitational is an opportunity for us to express our appreciation for the relationships that exist between us and other leading Golf Clubs from around the world.


The three-day event will provide your Club representatives with the opportunity to play both the East and West Courses before concluding on the Composite Course. Playing the Composite Course at Royal Melbourne is a rare opportunity and one that we are excited to provide to your members. I am certain this will cap off a very enjoyable three days of golf at Royal Melbourne.


Further information about the Invitational, along with the ability to accept your Club’s attendance, can be found below.


We hope that you will join us for three days of great golf and camaraderie.


Yours sincerely


Tony Rule

Captain, The Royal Melbourne Golf Club

The Courses

Our courses are maintained consistent with the principles espoused by Dr. Alister MacKenzie. The generous fairways and fast and firm conditions provide good challenges for both low and high handicap players.

The West Course

Designed by Dr. Alister MacKenzie during his visit in 1926, the West Course opened for play in 1931 and is recognised as the finest course in Australia and top-10 in the world.

The East Course

Designed by Alex Russell, the East Course opened for play in 1932 and provides a wonderful test of golf which complements its neighbouring West Course. The East Course suffers little in comparison with its older brother and is widely regarded as a world top 100 course.

The Composite Course

A mix of 12 holes of the West Course and six holes of the East Course, the Composite Course was formed in 1959 for the Canada Cup and remains in use for the many tournaments the Club has hosted since.
