The Metropolitan Golf Club was original part of the Melbourne Golf Club, the Royal title was bestowed on the club in 1895. The original links at Malvern was in danger of being overrun by housing so in 1901 many members moved nearer to Port Phillip Bay to the home of the present Royal Melbourne course. Those who remained formed the Caulfield Golf Club and in 1906 purchased farm land in Oakleigh an in 1908 the members moved to the new course and began play as The Metropolitan Golf Club.

The original course was designed by J B MacKenzie who was a member of the golf club and he transformed the farmland by establishment a magnificent plantation of Australian native trees and shrubs and has the most famous specimen of red flowering gum (Corymbia ficifolia) in Australia. This huge tree comes into bloom in February and is now the emblem of the golf Club along with a winged golf ball.

The course has seen several changes over the years from the original design, Dr Alister MacKenzie suggested modifications in 1926 and one of Gene Sarazen favourite – the 14th – holes was lost when some of the land was compulsively taken for a school development in 1960. American architect Dick Wilson designed a series of new holes on adjacent land, which are now hard to distinguish from the original course.

In 1997 the course was lengthened and re-bunkered and is now ready to hold its first World Cup matches, to sit alongside its list of other major tournaments that includes seven Australian Opens Championships, five Australian PGA Championships, ten other professional tournaments and five Australian Amateur Championships.

My tips to Win:

Playing in front of a home crowd Australia who are represented by Marc Leishman/Cameron Smith 9/2 – with SkyBet – have got to be the team to beat this week.

Hard on their heels will be the English team made up of Ryder Cup team mates Tyrrell Hatton/Ian Poulter 15/2 – BetVictor – and with their win over a strong US Team these two will want to add the World Cup of Golf to their team honours.

Each-way tips:

I was surprised to see Italy with Andrea Pavan/Ranato Paratore 45/1 – with UniBet – this far down the betting odds. Pavan is having a great season and while Paratore can be wild off the tee, he is a very streaky player and this pairing could gel well.

Another team I was surprised to see this far down the betting odds is Sweden, with Alexandra Björk/ Joakim Lagergren 50/1 – with BetVictor – both won for the first time this year and I think representing their country will bring out the best in this pair.

Outside tip:

This could be an underated pairing and I think these are great odds for the Netherlands who are represented by Joost Luiten/Daan Huizing 80/1 – with BetVictor – I think everyone knows about how good a player Joost is, but Huizing has been playing on the Challenge Tour and will no doubt be inspired by playing with one of Hollands best ever golfers.

As always good luck
