Unfortunately you have to be a member or the guest of a member to play on this, one of Australia's best courses. And it's a five year wait for membership, even after you've been seconded by two members. It's a little shorter than most 18 hole, par 72 courses, but all the dips and bunkers, if evened out might take it it up to a more usual length. Most of the bunkers are natural, the one on the 15th is considered one of golf's most perfectly formed.

If you lose yourself in the rough you may be there for some time, there's not just scrub, tea tree bushes and long grass the contend with there's also a lot of sand – Kingston Heath is considered one of the major sandbelt courses. And it's not all plain sailing once you get onto the greens either, the grass is far less smooth than it looks and there are several greens that look like a par 1 but play like a par 3.
