Simply magnificent. This is a championship course. Every hole feels distinctively unique and the layout is superb with hardly any up-and-back parrallel holes. Strategically, you have to play most tee shots off-centre on the fairways to set-up the best approaches. For the most part this is not a hit-it-up-the-middle track. The greens are multi-layered and huge in size by Sydney standards making putting very challenging.

A great opening hole and the 11th and 14th holes are iconic. Some of the widest fairways in Sydney but the sand waste and rough can be punishing if you stray too far to the sides. The look of the course with its fescue mounds, sand waste and the grass pathing between many of the holes gives The Lakes a natural links feel. The wind isn't as bad here as it is at NSWGC, but it's still a factor on most days. The course is mainly flat so it's a pleasant walk and there's almost no blind shots. Great club house and friendly staff.

Great track, managed to get on early morning so did not have the full extent of the wind until later in the back 9. Love how the course plays 2 different ways through the front and back, mixes up the scenery. Would rate it just ahead of NSWGC due to the fact it favoured my golfing style.

WHat a great track! Played on 21 February and the wind was howling out of the South. 40-50km/h of more all day made for an extreme test of golf - but there were still opportunities to score well if you played smart and straight. Just about every hole is memorable, but my highlights were the Par 5s, all of which have water in play off the tee and are reachable in 2 but have serious consequences for a miss. The greens were being reseeded which made them a little bumpy, but you've got to expect that a few months after a major tournament. The rest of the course was in immaculate condition, with the fairways looking and feeling like carpet. Service and facilities were first class all the way. I can't wait to play The Lakes again.

Played in the recent open day on the 16th of Jan. The front 9 with a deconstructed sandy waste feel, which i thought suited the course very well. The green contours great fun, however like any great course local knowledge is a must to score well. relatively wide fairways, which was a nice surprise and some really deep bunkers and long rough for the miss hit shot. Easier than i expected, but thoroughly enjoyable. Back 9 saw the North Easter hit us which started increasing the difficulty level. The 12th a very long par 4 into the wind and an unusual short par 4 13th. The highlight is of course the par 5 14th with the 2nd shot water carry all the way, you just can't resist having a go! I really enjoyed the contrast of the 2 nines and maybe even enjoyed the front 9 more... can i say that? Course was in excellent condition even though they were reseeding the greens. Service fantastic. This is what great golf is all about!

WOW, what a course! With the Aus Open a week or so away the fairways and greens are in top notch condition. This course is a tale of 2 nines: the front 9 looking like someone dropped some grass on a beach and the back 9 looking like someone dropped some grass on water. Both the front and back 9 are challenging though, especially into the kind of wind we had to play in, you could surf some of the waves on the lake! Do yourself a favour, play a round at the lakes!

What a fantastic course. Thoroughly enjoyed playing there. Greens and fairways were in perfect condition. Can't wait to watch the pros take on this beauty this year in the Aus Open.
