4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Brookwater Golf Club is home to a top-rated championship golf course, one of the best in the greater Brisbane area. The excellent tree-lined parkland layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Quietly tucked away in its woodland home, with high-end housing beyond a few sections of the perimeter, this pleasantly undulating Greg Norman design will challenge all facets of your game.

There's plenty of elevation change accompanying Brookwater's good-width fairways, which carve their way through the rocky, dry ruggedness of the surrounding bushland and eucalyptus forest. Vigorously protecting the mercurially sloping greens, an abundant array of large, deep bunkers exude a rustic, rough-edged look. Occasional water hazards also play their part, fronting some greens as at the short par-4 6th.

Amongst Brookwater's collection of well-crafted holes, you'll enjoy a wonderful quartet of not overly long par-3s, most played from dramatically elevated tees. The plunging, downhill par-5 13th is one of the layout's best holes, gently dog-legging its way through an attractive avenue of towering trees.

On a few stretches, and more so at the start of the back-nine loop, housing comes into view behind the tree-line, slightly taking the edge off the dramatic impact that characterises most of the course. Although further housing development is planned, at this time the layout retains a predominantly natural woodland feel. A course that's worth going out of your way to play.

Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Carlota Ciganda: the five-time Solheim Cup star was delighted to record a fourth Ladies European Tour win in her home national championship, the Ladies Spanish Open.

In 1975 he became the first African American golfer to play in the Masters tournament, and in so doing provided one of the pivotal moments in the history of professional golf.
