Bob Harrison,Greg Norman

Greg Norman was Australia's greatest player in the latter half of the 20th century, and would have been unmatched had he only been able to pick up some of the major championships for which he was a top contender. So if Norman needed any consolation, he has found it in his many successful business ventures, including golf course design. His course here at Brookwater dates back to 2002 and is a little bit out in the bush. At 6505 meters, it is ready should the big boys come to town, but is open enough for regular players. Norman's familiarity with Australia's classic courses has given him a keen eye for design; above all he knows when less is more, so his layout here at the Brookwater blends into the sparse bush setting. Like the classic courses, easier holes here ease a player into the round, while the finish is appropriately difficult.

Brookwater designed by Greg Norman is a big course & was certainly one of our favourites in Australia. It is such a well designed, thrilling golf course built through a beautiful eucalyptus forest. Steep evaluation changes, large bunkers, tricky greens & tough to hit the fairways off the tee make the course a real challenge. We smiled all the way around, despite waiting for the players in front all day and being terrified of snakes as it was one of our first rounds in Oz! A fantastic laid back club atmosphere too made us really welcome. Highly recommended. Would be 4.5stars in my book if that was an option and hope to come back & play a few times if we get to Australia again.

Another wicked design on the outskirts of Brisbane from The Shark, Greg Norman. Huge Eucalypts surround the whole course with tough tee shots these trees come into play, which requires the golfer to be very accurate from the tee box. Massive undulations are current throughout this top 30 Australian course with bunkers that are Greg Norman design renowned, IE very dramatic. Brookwater in some ways is a mini Augusta, as is Bonville GC in NSW. Do yourself a favour and make the trek out to play here. Playable all year round
