Established in 1909, Kingston Heath Golf Club is one of the premier golf clubs in Australia. The course is situated in the Sandbelt region in the southeast suburbs of Melbourne. Kingston Heath has hosted numerous prestigious national and international events over its history. The golf course is the future host to the Presidents Cup in 2028. Dan Soutar designed Kingston Heath in 1925. The famed Dr Alister MacKenzie was also brought in to offer bunker advice and guidance. In the view of many, he created the best natural bunkering one would ever wish to encounter. MacKenzie also suggested some minor alterations to the original Soutar layout, including turning the 15th from a short par four into a medium par three – and what a par three it is! The deep bunkers tend to overwhelm the small target and you should definitely try and avoid them by hitting the green at all costs.
