This year’s Australian Open Championship moves back to The Lakes Golf Club which was established in 1928. Architects Eric Apperly and Tom Howard were commissioned to design two golf courses, one public and one private course in the sandhills fronting Gardeners Road in Kingsford, Sydney.
The lake was part of the old Sydney water supply and the championship course was designed around the lake so it would become an integral part of the design. The public course had to open simultaneously as the Lakes Course and is known as Eastlake Links.
The course has had several redesigns since the original layout, in 1968, the Mascot motorway was built and closed the course. Von Hagge, Bruce Devlin’s partner, re-designed the layout. In 2007, Ogilvy Clayton design were commissioned to conduct a major redesign of the course and the club was then awarded with the 2010, 2011, and 2012 Australian Opens Championships and returns for the next two years.
The Lakes is regarded as a challenging course with wind playing a major factor along with 96 bunkers, sandy wastelands and if course those water hazards.

My tips to Win:
After two Top 5 finishes in his home Open Championship Cameron Smith 9/1 – with RoyalPanda – will be looking to take that next step to win his national title. Cameron has started the PGA Tours wraparound season well with two Top 25 from his three starts and with two third places finishes at the end of the season and making the Tour championship, I think he will be in the thick of it this week.
As many of you who follow my guide will know I have tipped Keegan Bradley 11/1 – with SportingBet – several times last year and felt that he wasn’t too far from being back to his best form. Keegan has started the new season well with two Top 20s from his two starts one being his sixth-place finish at the WGC HSBC tournament. Bradley won at the back end of last season and I expect him to continue that form this week.
This week’s defending champion is Cameron Davis 22/1 – with Bet365 – and I always find it hard not to pick the defending champion of a tournament, mainly because they will want to put up a good defence of their title. Davis should be in confident mood this week after winning on the web.com Tour and finishing in third place on the Web.com Tour Championship. Cameron has also and has had a steady start on the PGA Tours wraparound season.
It has been another rollercoaster year for Nicolas Colsaerts 40/1 – with SportingBet – on the European Tour with six Top 25 finishes from twenty-six starts – three of those were Top 10s with a third-place finish at the Shot Clock Masters. I think everyone knows the Belgium has the talent to challenge and with this field he really should be right in the thick of it come Sunday.
Matthew Millar 66/1 – with SportingBet – seems to be getting better with age, having turned professional in 1999 his best year was 2015 when he won the New Zealand PGA Championship and had ten other Top 10 finishes including four runner-up places from fourteen starts. Matthew currently sits inside the Top 10 on the PGA Tour of Australasia and has a win and six Top 10s including a runner-up from twelve starts coming into this event.
Nick Cullen 100/1 – with UniBet – has won on home soil beating Adam Scott in the 2014 BetEasy Masters and has four Top 25 finishes from his seven starts in this event. Nick currently sits just outside the Top 10 on the PGA Tour of Australasia OOM and has two Top 10s from his six starts.
Try Daniel Nisbet 200/1 – with SpredEX
As always good luck
