Regularly touted as South Australia's finest golf course, Kooyonga is a revered, historical golf club situated in Adelaide's inner-west. The city's international airport - a 30-minute drive away - has flown in some of golf's biggest and most important names for Kooyonga's six Australian Opens. Currently and consistently ranked in Australia's top 25, this private club is a 'must-do for Australian players.

Designed by arguably South Australia's most important golf course architect, H.L. 'Cargie' Rymall, the club came to fruition in 1922 when Rymall's usual train route to Royal Adelaide was disrupted. On the tram ride to his then club, he noticed Kooyanga's current site and its prime golfing environment.

With undulating sandhills, Santa Ana couch fairways, bentgrass greens, and native fescue rough, the course holds a testing but fair layout, with appropriate punishment of poor play. Blind spots, protected greens, and smart bunker placement all feature at Kooyonga. With spectacular conditioning, the course has a reputation for its year-round playability.

Small's legacy is in part due to his open-minded architecture. The course features consecutive par 3s on the back 9, but it's the opening due of par 5s that take players by surprise. South African golfing legend Gary Player managed to eagle both of the par 5s en route to his 1965 Australian Open win.

The course is private, open to the public depending on availability. With indoor and outdoor practice facilities, the club's all-weather reputation extends to all formats of golf. The visually appealing course is best taken in from the modern clubhouse's sweeping panoramic views.

Course Architect:

Herbert Lockett 'Cargie' Small (1923), Martin Hawtree (the 1980s), Crafter & Mogford (2000s)
