"You always want to support the tour in your home country, and it's a really good tour again this year with a good schedule," she said. Her favourite event on the tour is the Australian Masters. "The Australian Open, for some reason, always feels like a really intense week of golf. But then you get up to the Masters... it's on the Gold Coast on a wider course, the weather's nice and I just kind of relax so much more," she said. Garrett reckons Aussies don't always appreciate just how good golf courses are in this country. "On the whole, Australia is very fortunate. You don't realise how good our courses are until you go elsewhere. "Overall, on the good courses in Australia the greens are always fast and smooth. The greens in Europe can get a bit bumpy in certain places, although the courses in Wales, Ireland and Switzerland are always immaculate."

AMBASSADOR: Garrett is pictured in Melbourne last year on a cruise organised to promote the Australian Ladies Open at Kingston Heath. She has a strong sense of loyalty to the Australian Tour events.

The par-3 15th hole at Magenta Shores: "A great little par-3 that is very pretty and scenic. It can play easy, or so tough because the bunkers are steep and the rough is deep." The par-4 17th hole at Gosford: "It's a tough driving hole with a dogleg right, and a tough second shot. It's a good hole, even though I hate hitting shots to the right." The par-5 4th hole at Everglades: "You can go for the green or two, or lay up. It's a good risk and reward hole." The par-4 6th hole at Wyong: "A positioning hole where it's all about the drive. It's a tight hole where you don't want to be in the trees on the right. On the tee you have to decide whether you'll use the driver or, say, a 5-wood and have a longer shot into the green." The par-4 14th hole at Toukley: "A good, tough hole with water down the left and out of bounds down the right."
