COMMENTS

Horizons Golf Resort snared the coveted cover of the Hallmark 2004 Great Golf Courses of Australia calendar that features breathtaking shots of some of Australia's most picturesque courses.

Opened in 1992, Le Meilleur Horizons quickly became know for its slick greens, hazardous waterways and undulating fairways creating a challenging course. The course features superbly conditioned couch fairways.

The course itself is 6,187 metres from the back tees and consists of 4 par threes, 10 par fours, 4 par fives and incorporates 96 bunkers. All measurements are listed for the championship tees, but there are four tees in total - championship, members, resort and ladies.

The course consistently rates within the top 20 Australian courses by Australia's golfing fraternity and was ranked the number one resort course in NSW in 2002. The golf course covers almost 68 hectares, with 7.5km of cart paths and 85 bunkers.
