Golf Australia Express : Summer of Golf 2012-13
ON COURSES... THE LAKES’ THREE-PEAT No, we’re not talking about John Daly’s spat at last year’s Australian Open. Rather, the Australian Open’s third consecutive staging at the magnificent Lakes Golf Club. The Sydney track becomes the first course to hold a triple in as many years since The Australian Golf Club did it in the late 1970s. The list of winners at The Lakes is one to boast about, with major champions Jack Nicklaus (1964), Greg Norman (1980), Steve Elkington (1992) and Geoff Ogilvy (2010) hoisting the Stonehaven Cup at its hallowed turf. Last year it was Greg Chalmers who outlasted John Senden and Tiger Woods to claim his second Australian Open title. Could we see another big name win our national open in December? DESERT TREASURE Before Kalgoorlie Golf Course was built, playing a round in the goldfields was far from a grand prospect. But thanks to renowned designer Graham Marsh and the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder—who built the course to provide a quality local layout to help retain a transient population—this gem of a track will play host to the WA Goldfields PGA Championship from October 11-14 for the first time. And if the event’s rugged desert landscape allure, challenging lush-green layout and $110,00 bounty is not enough to attract the nation’s best, there’s another tasty jewel tempting that should get them over the line. The winner of the WA PGA earns the final spot in the field at the following week’s European Tour co-sanctioned $2 million Perth International. That’s one hefty nugget. OTG SUMMER NEWS
