100% the best course I have ever played

If you do not like Royal Melbourne, then you do not like yourself and you should give up golf. This is by far the best course I have ever played. I am not a member but have played here many times. The staff is awesome and not 'stuffy' at all. The course is absolutely awesome. The holes are memorable and unique. This not your typical "par 4 down, par 4 back, par 3 over, then....par 4 down and par 4 back" layout. Great course, highly recommended.

Just to give more context to my love for this course. I have played: Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Valderrama, Portmarnock, All of Bermuda, The Ocean Course, Erin Hills, Whistling Straits, Winged Foot, and Medinah (just ot name a few). So I know a great course when I see one!
