Considered by many to be one of (if not THE) best golfing regions in the world, the Melbourne Sandbelt is renowned for being a true golfer’s paradise. Some of the best players in the world, including Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Greg Norman, Rory McIlroy and others, have all publicly proclaimed their love for the remarkable courses that make up the Sandbelt. In recent years, the region has hosted The Presidents Cup (twice), The World Cup of Golf (twice), and it will play host to the Australian Open in 2020 and 2022.

The 2020 SGA Sandbelt Classic will be staged from September 27 – October 2. The host clubs are among the most exclusive in Australia featuring four of the top 20 golf courses in the country and airport and golf transfers to and from our accommodation at the new Shadow Play by Peppers are included for the tournament.

The event will commence on the #1 golf course in Australia and one of the top 10 golf courses in the world – The West Course at the highly exclusive Royal Melbourne Golf Club. The second round will be played at Kingston Heath Golf Club (above – ranked # 2*) that hosted the World Cup of Golf at the club in November 2016 and will host the 2020 Australian Open.

 

We will have a rest day on the Wednesday when golfers can have a break or play an additional optional round on a selection of other Sandbelt Golf Clubs. On the Thursday the field will tee up at Metropolitan Golf Club, the host club of the 2018 World Cup of Golf and the final round is at the venue that has hosted more than 30 Australian Masters tournaments, Huntingdale Golf Club.


In 2020, the SGA Sandbelt Classic has partnered with Shadow Play by Peppers, where we will stay for the five nights of the event. The new Shadow Play is a 3-iron from Melbourne’s bustling Southbank Promenade and a short walk to the Melbourne CBD and shopping precinct as well as the Crown Casino entertainment complex.

The package is based on quad-sharing in 2-Bedroom apartments for 5 nights with the option to upgrade to a single rooms in two-bedroom apartments or single rooms or twin-share rooms in one-bedroom apartments. Extra nights are available for golfers who wish to extend their stay.
