With many holes lined by trees, six US Opens and one Ryder Cup under its belt, the South course at Oakland Hills Country Club should be treated with respect.
Ellerston is the course that Greg Norman built for the flamboyant Australian media magnate Kerry Packer, the country's richest man, who sadly died in December 2005 at the age of 68.
