Huntingdale Golf Club
Rising to fame in 1979 with the inaugural hosting of the Australian Masters, Huntingdale has emerged as one of the most recognisable golf courses in Australia. Since 1979, Huntingdale has played host to some of the most famous names in golf, including Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Seve Ballesteros, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods. In 2008 Huntingdale celebrated the 30th consecutive year of hosting the Australian Masters and is justifiably recognised as ‘Home of the Australian Masters’. Huntingdale is now on a five course rotation for the Australian Masters and we look forward to welcoming the tournament back to its traditional home in the future.
Consistently rated as one of the best conditioned golf courses in Australia, Huntingdale is also the sand belt’s youngest.
The course greets players with superbly manicured fairways, strategic bunkering, large true greens and great memories of some of golf’s finest gracing the fairways in the Australian Masters.
“Huntingdale is the best course in Australia that is not on the roster for the Australian Open title”.
-- Peter Thompson
“It’s my first look at Huntingdale, and I thought it was spectacular...If I could play golf for the rest of my life, for fun, I would play courses like Huntingdale. It’s almost like something magical...”
-- Paul Casey
"I love the golf course...I love Huntingdale....I always have”
-- Robert Allenby
“Every golfer has to go to Melbourne and play the sandbelt courses at least once in their lifetime. Royal Melbourne, Kingston Heath, Huntingdale and Metropolitan are all fabulous”.
-- Nick Faldo
"I think some of the great golf courses in the world are right down there in Melbourne, that sandbelt...I absolutely love the face of the bunkers and the shape of the greens."
-- Tiger Woods
“I enjoy this style of golf...the course (Huntingdale) is not overly long, and there’s a lot of thought off the tee. You’re hitting a lot of different shots off the tee, trying to place the ball...it tests your entire game”
-- Tim Clark
“Great course with firm, fast greens. It doesn’t get any better”
