Iranian government. In ,. Plus, after once being ranked inside the top in the country Royal Canberra had slipped to outside the top Watching members play the course it was amazing to see just how much golf was played out of the rough. On such a big property there was very little short grass — rough surrounded every green and bunker and the fairways were only 20 to 25 metres wide.
It was a logical time to consider which direction the club should head in. In no way did we want to change the feel of the course — it still wanted to be a parkland, tree-lined type of layout — but we saw there was so much more potential. Australians have often compared Royal Canberra to Augusta. It was lush, tree-lined and undulating like Augusta, and I guess felt more like an American golf course than an Australian one. Augusta, by contrast, is an incredibly wide golf course — wider even than Royal Melbourne — with short grass extending from tree line to tree line and surrounding every green.
Combined with width it has an amazing set of greens that demand you position your ball perfectly back in the fairway. With width the player has the freedom to choose their own line — for good or ill. Fairways were widened as much as we could — in light of the fact that much of the vegetation had to be preserved. The bunkers were all rebuilt with a bit more shape and artistic flair, and a relatively new drainage system Kustombind was added to help preserve their appearance no matter how much it rained.
In building the new greens we wanted to return the ground to its natural contours so they would fit better into the landscape. This meant removing many of the mounds and hollows that surrounded most of the green sites. Putting surfaces now have predominantly long tilted surfaces, a little like the sandbelt in Melbourne, and the combination of slope and bunkers pinching into the putting surface sets up the strategy back on the tee. Sometimes you will need to hug the right side, other times the left. Rarely will the best line be from the middle of the fairway.
No longer is the only shot a lob wedge from the rough. A blend of grasses more akin to American golf was chosen by the club to suit the difficult Canberra climate — bentgrass on the tees, greens and fairways and rye grass in the roughs. As it turns out, the effect is a course that looks more like Augusta than ever before!
Of all the changes made to the course, without doubt the talking point will be the holes around the edge of the lake, in particular, the long par-4 14th — a cape style hole played across the edge of the lake. Looking back I wonder what the mood of the membership was back at the inauguration speech, having been forced to move from the original home? No doubt it was similar to what many of the current members felt when they first heard the course was to be renovated.
Royal Canberra Golf Club is more than a century old and moved to its current site in the s.
The course was designed by John Harris, and has since been worked on by a number of architects, including Peter Thomson and Michael Wolveridge in the s, who added an additional nine holes. The firm has worked with the club in Canberra, Australia, since , with the recent work focusing on holes Royal Canberra is home to 27 holes of golf, and OCCM will be shifting its focus on the final nine holes in the near future. For a country where most of our best courses are within a few kilometres of the ocean, it became known as one of our better inland courses.
When OCCM was first brought in to work on the course, Cocking explained that the course had become very narrow, with trees encroaching on play and having an effect on the turf quality. The bunkers were badly in need of attention and there were some agronomic issues which drove the need to reconstruct the greens and tees. So it was a logical time to consider which direction the club should head in. In no way did we want to change the feel of the course — it still wanted to be a parkland, tree lined type of layout — but it could be significantly better.
With regards to the back nine, Cocking described these holes as lying on some of the best land on the property. The project team has removed vegetation in selected areas and opened up large expanses of grass to link certain tees and greens. The valley which ran across the 14th, 15th and 16th holes typically got wet in winter and rather than fighting the contours, it seemed more appropriate to work with the heavy ground, so we converted this valley into a creek. It looks great but more importantly it adds a lot of interest to the second shot on what is a very reachable par five.

Cocking says that some club members were apprehensive at first about any tree removal, but reported that these areas have been among their favourite changes. The fairways were widened as far as possible by Cocking and his team, in light of the fact a lot of the vegetation had to be preserved. The bunkers were all rebuilt in an artistic style, replacing the simple shapes with sands similar to those used at Augusta. Putting surfaces now have predominantly long tilted surfaces, as opposed to tiers.
The combination of slope and bunkers pinching into the putting surface sets up the strategy back on the tee. Around the green there is also a lot of short grass — so missed shots may funnel away from the target a little further and the variety of recovery shots has been increased. No longer is the only shot a lob wedge from rough.

Some alterations have been quite extensive but more often than not the work has involved repositioning a tee or perhaps subtly reworking a bunker or tee carry. As with all our construction on the sand-belt we try hard to give the impression the new work have been there for a long time. Changes at the 5th were completed 12 months ago and show how even a small change such as widening a tee and making some changes to the carry can make a significant difference from the tee.
Peninsula Kingswood South and Royal Canberra are currently under construction and were therefore not considered. It will be interesting to see how far these two courses can climb in the rankings. With more work to come over the coming years, we look forward to Sun City moving further up the rankings in future editions.
Given the number of new courses that have entered the top 20 in recent years, the work done at these clubs has been vital to their continued recognition among the top echelon of courses in the country. LIKE most living things, golf courses change over time. Sometimes this can be slow. Trees grow, bunkers erode, even putting green levels can change with constant top dressing and bunker play, adding as much as 30cm over time.
Some changes occur much faster. As seen on theage. Martin Blake. For a player of his quality and experience it is a puzzling record, and one he cannot explain.
