Course
Opened – September 1991
Course Designer – Graham Marsh and Ross Watson
Special Features - The scrub surrounding the course can provide many unplayable lies with the only option being a return to the tee or where previous shot was played from.
General Playability - Will be open to some low scoring however the greens will be very much part of the challenge and there are some very strong par 3’s.
Undulating / Flat - only minor undulation.
Tree lined/exposed - lined with heavy scrub and bush.
Many / few water hazards - A number of hazards, mostly in play on holes 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18.
Changes to the course - No real changes although the last  time  the Johnnie Walker Classic was played here in 2006 all 18 holes of the lakes course were used but this year we are returning to the composite course of the Lakes and Ellenbrook courses as used in the previous tournaments staged here.
