If we have learned anything these past 12 months it is that time matters.

We have examined how we spend it, treasured it when we’ve had it and thought of ways in which we can use it better.

We can work from anywhere, live where we want to rather than where we need to and tailor our lives to maximise the enjoyment we extract from every day.

So why wouldn’t you play your golf somewhere truly special?

When it opened almost 20 years ago, Brookwater Golf & Country Club in the greater city of Springfield, west of Brisbane, was an exclusive enclave for its well-to-do members, but a decision to be more accessible to visitors and some subtle course adjustments have made Queensland’s No.1 course an experience for all golfers to savour.

The service is exceptional, the setting quintessentially Australian and the Greg Norman-designed golf course of such a standard that you will replay certain shots over and over in your head until you next return.

The tee shot at the first; the roller-coaster ride of the par-5 fourth; the fall to the fifth green; the climb to the 10th; the closing four holes that will examine every aspect of your game under the pressure of trying to close out a round.

Head inside the award-winning clubhouse and indulge in the stunning panorama it offers while discussing the highs and lows of the previous 18 holes; that delicate pitch onto the ninth green, the tee shot that just caught the bunker on the right side of the 13th fairway.

There is public access seven days a week, availability for tailored corporate golf experiences and a range of membership packages all currently open.

However you choose to play it, every round at Brookwater is time well spent.
