One of the pleasures of playing at the Wanderers is the fact that you open your round with a downhill tee shot on a par 5, either the first or the tenth, to a broad fairway. It helps free up your swing for the holes ahead. The Wanderers is not only a beautiful parkland layout, with mature trees framing fairways, but it has extremely attractive greens complexes, created by Rob O’Friel more than 20 years ago which have stood the test of time. There are some long and narrow greens where the pins can be tucked away in tough positions. Invariably a missed green can see the ball running away down a slope or into a well-placed bunker.
