"We play a lot of unbelievable courses on the PGA Tour, but Kingston Heath would be far and away the best of the regular tournament courses - that's not including the Majors. The US Open has stunning courses, but overall, most of the American courses are nowhere near as good as Kingston Heath". Geoff Ogilvy
'Kingston Heath is the pick of the Melbourne Sandbelt courses and I haven't seen anything better around the world". Peter Senior
"I've always loved coming down here and playing these golf courses… it' a treat.
"You don't need a golf course to be 7,700 yards for it to be hard. You can build it just like this. Have it nice and tricky and it's just a treat to play." Tiger Woods
“Kingston Heath is totally awesome. Someone please tell modern day architects we don't need 8000 yard tracks they're not enjoyable. Best yet “ Ian Poulter
The course is renowned for its natural charm and strategies created by its superbly crafted greens and bunkers.
Designed by Dan Soutar and built by Mick Morcom, considered by Mackenzie the best green keeper he had come across, the course was opened in 1925. At 6812 yards and par 82 made it one of the longest and hardest courses in Australia.
