    Getting here: Buses from Sandringham and Southland

    With no direct train line serving Black Rock, Sandringham is the nearest train station. Taking just 29 minutes from Flinders Street via the Sandringham line, regular coaches will be running from the station to the Royal Melbourne Golf Club.

    For those travelling on the Frankston Line, regular coaches will be running from Southland directly to the course.


    Additional public transport information can be found via the official Presidents Cup 'play your visit' page.

    Places to play

    Visiting fans can immerse themselves in the abundance of golfing opportunities just minutes away from the Presidents Cup action.

    The prestigious Victoria Golf Club, which regularly hosts the Australian Masters, provides the ideal opportunity to embrace the inspiration of seeing the world's best in action.

    The course was, like the Royal Melbourne, designed by the great Alister MacKenzie and is ranked in the top 10 in Australia and top 100 in the world.

    Also located in Victoria's wonderful sandbelt golf region is a public golf course, Cheltenham Golf Club, offering a 18 and 9-hole test, while Sandy Mini Golf presents a very different challenge for those looking to work on their short game.

    If you're staying closer to the CBD then Brighton Golf Club is also open to the public and boasts an excellent 18-hole par-67 course.
