Until the late 1950's the nature of the course remained links like. Only sparse acacias, and in the low lying areas, paperbarks existed and there were vast tracts of sandy waste.
The routing of the course changed little during this time, other than the need for modifications when the clubhouse was re-sited from the North East corner of the property to where the now third clubhouse sits, following the first fire in 1932.
In the late 50s a tree planting programme began, introducing conifers and eucalypts to the course.
The current layout, featuring moderated undulations and water hazards was redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1977, following an approach to the club by Mr Kerry Packer, who generously agreed to meet the costs of the work.
