The January 2012 issue of Golf Vacations magazine that hit the shelves last week features a nice article with Ian Baker-Finch listing his favourite Australian and International golf courses.
“I would rate the composite course at Royal Melbourne as the best in the world when it’s in the kind of condition it was in for the recent Presidents Cup,” says Baker-Finch.
“But as far as stand-alone layouts go, I’m sticking with Kingston Heath, an old favourite that I believe is the best course in Australia. This is down to its design aesthetics, exceptional year-round conditioning and quite possibly some of the best green complexes in the world.”
“Augusta is the most difficult course in the world to get a tee time. Enjoy the Masters telecast this year because it’s the closest you are ever likely to get.” Baker-Finch said.
