The 27 hole layout at the private Royal Canberra Golf Club is one of the best in the country; rated 12th in Australia by Australian Golf Digest. Pines, birch, cedar and Australian natives give a truly sensory experience. The local mob of kangaroos and fantastic views of Lake Burley Griffin add to the occasion. The Royal Canberra Golf Club is a private members' club. Access for play is restricted almost exclusively to members and members of reciprocal clubs and their guests. Consideration can be given to requests from interstate or overseas visitors.
