Royal Adelaide Golf Club

With a core of outstanding holes and an unmistakably adventurous streak,
Royal Adelaide provides a platform for creative shots and an extremely
enjoyable golfing experience.






About the Club Although the original Royal Adelaide Golf Club was founded in June 1870, it
survived but a few years. The current club, founded at Glenelg in 1892,
moved to the sandy craters and dunes of Seaton along the city’s western
railway in 1904. The Seaton site remains the home of the club, which was
granted approval to prefix the title ‘Royal’ in 1923.

Despite its many alterations, including work by Dr Alister MacKenzie in
1926, Royal Adelaide retains the distinctive character of a comparatively
open links course. MacKenzie’s gift to the club was to leave behind the
extraordinary 3rd hole that, with a frontal pin, may well be one of the
best short par fours anywhere in the world.

The first bungalow-style clubhouse was ready for occupation at the end of
1905 and since that time there have been countless additions and
alterations to accommodate the increasing number of Members and their
varying requirements.

The links at Seaton has been the venue for many international and
interstate matches and championships. The Club has hosted nine Open
Championships of Australia and sixteen Amateur Championships of Australia.
The Australian Ladies Amateur and Open Championships have also been played
over the links. A one-of-a-kind course, Royal Adelaide has changed
substantially over the years, yet retained its fundamental character and
charm.
Design Features Royal Adelaide retains the distinctive character of a comparatively open
links course, an attribute by no means common in this country. It is this
character which members and visitors alike recognise as a priceless asset in
a golf course situated so close to a major city. Taken as a whole, the Seaton
course, with its wide open spaces, poses more problems than appear at first
sight, except under the most benign conditions. Most members are more than
happy to complete their round having played to their handicaps.
Course Highlight 3RD, PAR 4, 266 METRES
Designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, this short par 4 is the introduction to
the sand dune country after the relative flatness of the first two holes.
The natural dunes gave the 3rd all the necessary golfing elements needed
for a classic two shotter without the use of a single bunker. All that was
required was the building of a tee and a green – the rest was left to
nature.

From a tee perched on the side of the railway line, the tee shot calls for
a clear decision from the golfer. For the brave golfer who gambles on a
driver from the tee, the hole is reachable but the tee shot is blind. As
the fairway beyond the ridge slopes from right to left down from the dunes,
the drive must be precisely threaded down the right edge of the fairway in
order to receive a favourable kick towards the green opening.

Prudent players may hit a 3-iron to the top of the ridge that traverses the
fairway, leaving a tricky wedge shot into a long and narrow green. The
green is slightly angled across the line of play and guarded at the left by
a steep, narrow embankment, covered by heavy rough.
