Queensland Australia offers so many golf courses and awesome resorts so three weeks in this part of Australia is just a drop in the ocean. Surely there isn´t enough time to play all of them but that´s the best reason to come back as early as possible. I had the opportunity to play Brookwater GC close to Brisbane before we left beautiful Australia.
The spectacular 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course with its amazing bunkering and the great use of natural waterways designed by Greg Norman is just divine. I was lucky to play Brookwater GC after the strategic redesign of greens, fairways and bunkers. Brookwater GC is really challenging and impressing at the same time.
The golf course winds through naturally undulating Australian scrubland so my current accuracy on the greens was an absolutely score killer. I know I am repeating myself but once again the shape and quality of the fairways and greens was just outstanding right down to the last detail.
I even can’t tell you what my signature hole was. I just enjoyed every single angle of this course. Seriously this is a declaration of love! Also reinforced by the fact that my dudes jumped around the course again.
One hole which really got me was No.4 a brutal par 5 with 529 from the yellow tees. First you hit a long drive in a valley. Once you made it you have to play all the way up to the hill and the green. Again just awesome. Up and down, the slightly hilly situated course offers many holes like this. But once again if you´re long and not straight, no chance. Every hole is protected by two to five bunkers. Deep greens while super fast and quite hilly as well.
Don’t mess around with them. I can also recommend a late round on this course. A very individual highlight is the truly breathtaking play of light and shadow which imparts the very unique character of this course. In summary Brookwater GC is a total must play.
Everything is perfect and the course is a true adventure. It wasn´t a surprise that this course is maintained by Troon. All perfect and totally in shape.
