Greg Norman gives us his favourite courses he has designed.
The latest issue of Golf Vacations magazine has a great article written by Greg Norman. He is one of the world’s leading golf course designers and has now completed 74 courses worldwide with another 35 projects currently under way.
In the article he talks about his top ten favourite golf courses he has designed. I was particularly amazed at the extent of his courses. In the article are courses from Australia, Ireland, USA, Mexico and China. The three Aussie golf courses are Ellerston, The National Moonah Links and Brookwater Golf Club.
Check out the January issue of Golf Vacations which is out now for the full list – which includes a 36-page Presidents Cup supplement. Here’s what he had to say Brookwater:
BROOKWATER GOLF CLUB (QLD, AUSTRALIA)This site was full of tall, mature gum trees and native vegetation that we strategically used to frame the golf holes. When you play the course, you will feel as though you are on a walk through the woods and each hole is isolated from the others. The site offered a series of dramatic ridges and we routed the golf holes to take advantage of these ridges and the dramatic elevation changes. We tried to carve the holes out of these vegetation stands and into several valleys on the course. The scenery here is just fantastic.
