ISPS Handa Australian Open

The DP World Tour continues its Australian stint with the ISPS Handa Australian Open at the Australian Golf Club in Kensington, Sydney.
The course originally set out by Clark, Hutchinson and Martin in 1903, was changed, not for the better from a links venue to a parkland US style course by Jack Nicklaus, paid for by Kerry Packer.
The modern course measures 6610 metres (7220 yards) par 72 with a course rating of 76.

South African Open

The strange decision to run an alternate event the South African Open at the Blair Atholl Golf and Equestrin estate surely diminishes both field’s quality. The Gary Player design measures 8161 yards (7420m) and is considered the longest course on the DP World Tour. However Ockie Strydom shot 63 last year proving length is not the defining factor in a courses ability to withstand the pros.
It’s hard for non South Africans to win here.
