Where2Golf says: 

Royal Hobart Golf Club: Located at Seven Mile Beach, about 15 km east of Tasmania's capital, Royal Hobart is a traditional, attractively presented, parkland course, certainly deserving of its Royal status - the predominantly doglegging front-nine holes and straightaway back-nine holes are laid out on relatively flat, lightly contoured terrain - the uniformly challenging fairways, never too wide, are lined with a wonderful variety of both indigenous and imported trees, providing clear definition to each hole - good quality bunkering plays its part along the fairways and especially around the greens - none of the excellent collection of par-3s bring water into play, but all are stylishly bunkered, and the par-3 15th, at 200 metres from the back-tees is quite a challenge - putting on the subtly sloping, excellent quality greens adds to the pleasures of a round at Royal Hobart - with predominantly woodland around the course perimeter and very little housing to be seen, you are assured a quiet and natural setting here at Royal Hobart - scenically there is not too much to look at beyond the course, although a pudding-shaped hill behind the clubhouse gives the gently doglegging par-4 18th an interesting backdrop.

Did you know?

Royal Hobart was established in 1896, and was originally called Newlands Golf Club. The club changed its name to Hobart Golf Club soon after, with the members playing on a course in the Sandy Bay area. In 1915 the club moved to a new location at Rosny, on Hobart's eastern shore. The club's final move to its current Seven Mile Beach site, came in 1956. | Royal Hobart is one of eight golf clubs in Australia honoured by exercise of the Sovereign's royal prerogative. George V conferred the Royal title on the club in 1925. The eight Australian 'Royals' are (in order of gaining Royal status): Melbourne, Sydney, Queensland, Adelaide, Hobart, Fremantle, Canberra and Perth. | The Club has hosted many top level tournaments, including the 1971 Australian Open, won by Jack Nicklaus. For more details see Top Golf Tournaments at Royal Hobart GC.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.

Latest golf course reviews
Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park. Perhaps not as lauded as nearby Little Aston, and Copt Heath, this heathland gem also lays down a really enjoyable test of golf in a wonderfully natural setting. Read more... 
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
