With the Presidents Cup matches being played at Liberty National this year the Northern Trust – formally The Barclays – will be played at Glen Oaks Club.

The Glen Oaks Club was formed in 1924 south of Lake Success on land purchased from William K. Vanderbilt property straddling the Nassau-Queens border. The club wanted to expand in the late 1960s and bought a 250-acre arboretum that was part of the Winthrop Estate and hired Joe Finger – famous for designing "The Monster" at the Concord Hotel – to build the course, that opened for play on Labour Day 1971.

The 27 holes at Glen Oaks were unchanged until 2011, when Joel Weiman and superintendent Craig Currier – who was previously superintendent at Bethpage State Park – led a renovation that was completed in 2014. The redesign features contoured fairways, impeccably manicured bunkers and bright green grass from tree line to tree line.

"You don't see this look around (Long Island). Everyone is going with the native areas, the fescue, the jagged bunkers," Currier said. "We went the total opposite way-real clean, elegant looking bunkers. People joke with us, calling us the Augusta of the North, but that's kind of the look we were going for."

The Northern Trust will use a composite course of Glen Oaks' 27 holes. holes 1-3 and 6-9 on the White Course, holes. 4 and 5 on the Red and the complete Blue course for a par of 70, weighing in at 7,300 yards.

My tips to win:

With this weeks event being played on a new course its hard to judge how the course will suit each players eye/game, so I have gone for inform players who can adapt quickly to new conditions and environments.

I am sure Hideki Matsuyama 11/1 – with BoyleSport – will be itching to get back out and playing, his mind must have been on none stop reply since the PGA Championship and what could have been. Hideki has three wins and three runners-up this year and after a weeks rest and a few practice rounds I feel he will be the man to beat this week.

There was an awful lot of pressure on Jordan Spieth 12/1 – with Bet365 – to become the youngest player to compete the Grand Slam so it was with no surprise that he didn’t really compete and it was one of the reasons why I didn’t tip him that week. But Jordan is a player that studies a course well and will be a couple of shots up on the field just because of his due diligence of the course, he is also in great form with two wins from his last four starts.

Rickie Fowler 16/1 – with Ladbrokes – has only been outside the Top 10 twice in his last seven starts that includes three Top 5s and a runners-up finish. Rickie’s record over the year has been nine Top 10s from seventeen starts – in stats form that means he finishes inside the Top 10 over 50% of the time – which is incredible consistency with so many good golfers teeing it up each week.

My each-way tips

If there is one player that can plot himself around a new course it has to be Matt Kuchar 40/1 – with BlackType. Matt has only been outside the Top 17 once in eight starts that includes a runner-up finish and four other Top 10s. Kuchar has not won on tour since 2014 and he is certainly due a victory after playing some great golf in The Open championship.

The defending champion this week is Patrick Reed 40/1 – with BetBright – and although this weeks tournament is being held at a different venue he will still want to put up a good defence of his title. Patrick comes into this week on the back of that fantastic final round 67 at the PGA Championship that see him just miss out on a getting into a play-off and had to settle for the runner-up spot. I must admit I was surprised to see him at these odds and I think he represents great value this week.

My Outside Tips:

There are quite a few decent outside bets this week: I can’t see it being to long before Justin Rose 70/1 – with BlackType – is back challenging to win. Francesco Molinari 70/1 – with 32Red – should come into this week in buoyant mood after firing a second round 64 that helped him take a runner-up spot at the PGA Championship

If you are looking for bigger odds check out Kevin Na 125/1 – with SportingBet another player that has come back into form and should be in confident mood this week after his Top 5 at the weekend or Sean O’Hair 250/1 – with BetFred.
