Region: Melbourne Sandbelt
Woodlands Golf Club is a very underrated sandbelt course and somewhat of a hidden gem. Highly regarded by golfing purists, the championship layout features small and fast greens. The narrow fairways are all pure couch and offer a great surface from which to play. There are many bunkers to overcome, particularly the long bunker shots to pins which always seem too close to the bunker edge.

The architect of this renowned Sandbelt course was Alex Russell who, in 1926, formed a partnership with the famed Dr Alister MacKenzie during his visit to Australia. Today, the course remains substantially the same as the original layout and like all great golf courses, has stood the test of time.
The superb greens and bunkers are the highlight at Yarra Yarra and as good as many of MacKenzie's own creations. Typically large, fast and undulating, the greens feature some of the most extreme slopes in Melbourne, while the bunkers are constructed to blend naturally with their surrounds and are intrinsic to the strategy of each hole.
The course has been the scene of many major tournaments in its history, leading to world-wide recognition by amateurs and professionals alike.
