No. 2 ranked course in Australia and for good reason. Beautifully designed by Soutar and MacKenzie in 1925. From the moment I entered the front gate, to having my bag taken to the pro shop, to receiving wonderful token gifts and a photo from the staff of me standing at the starters box to a beer at the end of my round, all the hype surrounding 'the Heath is justified.
Absolutely perfect day had on the 2nd best course in Australia in my opinion! No wonder it's held every major golfing event :) It's easy to walk around this course that sits on such a rich sandy base. Not a lot of elevation change to this course as is the case with most of the sandbelt courses, but the routing and design of the holes are what makes it truly world class.
The course has great holes everywhere, no more so than on the run home, at the 142m Par 3 15th, design heaven is seen from every angle. The bunkering at KH is outstanding in terms of design and the quality of each one, good depth, quality of sand. This is only one of the dangers as the razor edge greens attached to them play generally very quick with bunker to bunker shots more than likely if the golfer gets it wrong. Undulating and great sized greens make for the beautiful make up of this world class course. Tys.
