“Any course where you can win an Australian Open is bound to have special memories. The golf we play in America is quite different, and it was refreshing to be able to play the thoughtful and strategic golf demanded by The Lakes. We do it rarely on the PGA Tour.” – Geoff Ogilvy (2006 US Open, 2010 Australian Open Champion)

Holes: 18 ~ Par: 72 ~ Slope: 143 ~ Scratch: 74

The Lakes Golf Club is located within the Botany Water Reserve. Due to this unique environmental location and the historical significance of the site, The Lakes Golf Club takes great pride in its approach to environmental issues.

Through our Environmental Management Plan (EMP) we actively pursue the preservation of the wetlands area. Our aim is to nurture an environment that will protect rare and distinct remnant vegetation and will provide a sanctuary for wildlife.

Situated on a pure sand base, the land that The Lakes occupies contains pockets of protected Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub, a species that is particular to a small south-eastern pocket of Sydney.
