The SGA 2022 Sandbelt Classic
October 3-7, 2022
Tee it up on the country’s top golf courses in SGA’s annual "Bucket List" event
Considered by many to be the best golfing region 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 soon play host to the Australian Open.
The event will feature a mouth-watering selection of Australia's highest-rated, Bucket-List courses, including Kingston Heath Golf Club, Huntingdale Golf Club, Peninsula-Kingswood G&CC, and a golf club that is so exclusive we cannot mention them by name here (Ring us for details). There is also a bonus/optional round of golf available at Metropolitan Golf Club.
In 2022, 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.

2022 SGA Sandbelt Classic Courses
Kingston Heath Golf Club
The event will commence at Kingston Heath Golf Club (ranked # 2 in Australia), which hosted the World Cup of Golf in November 2016 and will host a future Australian Open. It is among one of the world's very best courses, and has been celebrated by the planet's top players.
Ultra-Exclusive Sandbelt course
The second round will be played at one of the very top golf courses in Australia (and the world). This is at a golf club that is so exclusive we cannot mention them by name here (Ring us for more information).
Trust us when we say that this is one of the best courses you can play in Australia, and will be a "Bucket List" experience that will make you the envy of many.
REST DAY - OPTIONAL GOLF
Metropolitan Golf Club
Wednesday is the rest day when golfers can have a break or play an extra optional round at Metropolitan Golf Club, the host club of the 2018 World Cup of Golf. Regarded by many as one of Australia's premier championship golf clubs, Metropolitan's history dates back to the 1890s and the course is currently ranked #12 in Australia.
Huntingdale Golf Club
On the Thursday we tee up at the venue that has hosted 31 Australian Masters tournaments, Huntingdale Golf Club. A true test of golf, Huntingdale is known for manicured fairways, strategic fairway bunkering and large undulating greens.
Peninsula-Kingswood Golf Club
For the final round, we will go for the first time to the North Course at Peninsula-Kingswood G&CC, ranked #5 in Australia. Playing over sandy and undulating ground, The North Course is a pure Sandbelt experience. Firm and fast with tilted greens, expansive bunkers, wide fairways and roughs that combine sand, native grasses and heathland vegetation that the Sandbelt region is known for.
