It would be difficult to imagine a longer journey than that from the sand greens and dirt fairways of Grawin Golf Club to the manicured surfaces of the world renowned Royal Melbourne.

And for Pam Yates, twice a club champion at the nine hole “Club in the Scrub” 70 km from Lightning Ridge, a trip to RM would be a dream come true.

One of the most common questions we hear about The Golf Link Cup is how the scoring system works.
As a national tournament which takes in virtually every competition round of golf played, it's important that the scoring system be as fair as possible.

The first Monday of series one of the 2013 Golf Link Cup and I felt I had to celebrate the new season of TWO Golf Link Cup qualifiers by getting out on the course and trying to generate some positive Golf Link Cup points for myself.

So I called my friend (22 handicap from Commonwealth GC) and we headed for the club that signed the most participants for the 2012 Golf Link Cup, Southern Golf Club.

The greatest names in world golf have often assembled at Royal Melbourne to engage in head-to-head combat and last year the best female players in the world were given their first taste of Royal Melbourne’s splendours. In part two of our feature on the host of the Golf Link Cup National Final, we look back on a number of the high-profile tournaments that have captured the imaginations of players and spectators alike.

Her bountiful curves have enticed, enthralled and confounded the world’s best golfers for the past 100 years and when the eight finalists of the Golf Link Cup step onto the first tee at Royal Melbourne Golf Club’s West Course on Monday they will add a personal chapter to a rich history of tournament play at the famed venue. Although major professional tournaments such as the Presidents Cup, Australian Open and Heineken Classic (to name just three) have been played over various incarnations of Royal Melbourne’s Composite Course, the Golf Link Cup finalists will feel the same nerves as they grace the West Course’s first hole, a par 4 of 392 metres.
