Australian Open course a stunner

Geoff Ogilvy tees off on the par three 6th

Perched on cliffs and hills overlooking Botany Bay, the New South Wales Golf Club course was one of the real stars of the show as play got underway in the 2009 Australian Open in brilliant sunshine in Sydney.

Often rated as one of the best in the country and right up there with anything else in the world, the spectacular La Perouse venue is a delight for spectators and a real test for competitors, especially when the wind blows.

The photo shows Geoff Ogivly teeing off on one of the signature holes – the 185 metre par three sixth. Perching behind the 6th green is one of the popular vantage points for spectators.
