Step into the shoes of the pros for a day and test your drive on the only course designed for the Australian Open.
"The Open Course at Moonah Links is the first ever 18 holes built and prepared for a national championship. With exceptional viewing platforms for spectators. It is one of the longest courses in Australia, and probably in the world in this category.
It measures 6783 metres, so it offers more than a casual stroll in the outdoors. It is a mighty and ferocious test of golfing ability, the likes of which even the top pros only occasionally experience. In terms of difficulty, I estimate a club-handicapped player would merit an extra eight strokes assistance to return a net par score, yet the course has great flexibility. It can be played at many different lengths depending on tees selected.
Indeed, it is expected that the total length will only seldom be used for the real championship occasion.
In addition to its condusive natural contours, the site is blessed with ever-present wind of some direction and strength, and this enhances its attributes. Planning has arranged that no particular direction is especially helpful, it is always a factor.
The Leviathan of a course is a new experience for Australian golf. Visitors will get a whiff of what top championship play is really like."
Peter Thomson - 5 times British Open Champion.
The Legends Course stands as a tribute to past champions who have contributed to the rich history of Australian golf."
"In contrast to the Open Course, which was purpose built to challenge the modern champion, the Legends Course will be a more friendly golfing experience for players of all ages and abilities.
The course is a loop of 18 holes that generally follow the valleys through a variety of landscapes ranging from ancient Moonah woodlands to open links land. The fairways are generous and the putting surfaces gentle, but the bunkering style is bold and wild in appearance.
At 6,315 metres, the course should be fun, but it won't be a pushover.
We trust the Legends Course will do justice to the champions it honours and will inspire others to emulate their feats."
