Kingston Heath

Kingston Heath members relocated their club from Elsternwick almost a century ago and since then various architects, superintendents, and committees have influenced this great course.  The course now is perhaps the best it has ever been, the result of a decision-making process envied by every club in the country.

 

For almost twenty years now we have made changes to every hole.  Some, most notably the lengthening of the 12th hole, have been significant but most have been subtle and hopefully unnoticed by those with a trained architectural eye. They include bunker and tee reconstruction, a long-term vegetation plan, restored fairway edges, the promotion of heathland areas especially in the transitions from tee to fairway, and the concept of linking holes with more short grass. Our most recent work was the construction and redesign of the 19th hole, a hole that will once again be utilised when Kingston Heath again plays host to the Australian Open in 2020.
