Golf Australia Express : Issue 5
WEST COURSE Surrounded by woodland of pine, oak and birch and the undergrowth of vibrant Rhododendrons adding a splash of colour, the West course presents both a glorious natural setting and a well-defined strategic layout. The course, designed by great architect Harry Colt— whose portfolio includes sublime golf courses such as Royal Portrush, Rye, Sunningdale (Old), Swinley Forest and St George’s Hill—features impressive bunkering (especially around the greens) and several longish carries over the heather. Fairways turning both ways add a wonderful flow and par- 3s, par-4s and par-5s of differing lengths and elevation present much variety. Scoring well is a tough assignment. Tight fairways framed by heathery rough and trees require skilled shotmaking. The West course is undoubtedly one of the world’s supreme stretches of heathland golf.
