    Former Ladies Masters champion Cheyenne Woods rates the revamped Royal Pines as "unrecognisable".

Former Ladies Masters champion Cheyenne Woods rates the revamped Royal Pines as "unrecognisable" from the course on which she triumphed in 2014.

Players in Thursday's opening round will confront a testing 5,893m par-73 course following a complete re-design by Graham Marsh.

"It's going to be a good challenge that really forces you to think your way around the course," said Woods, who shot 12-under to win two years ago.

"It is almost unrecognisable from two years ago and some holes are completely different.

"Around the greens is very interesting with run-offs, undulations and mounds."

The new Royal Pines is vastly different to the relatively flat, benign 18 holes which seven-time champion Karrie Webb obliterated with a 26-under-par score in 2010.

Woods is playing her fourth successive Ladies Masters and tees-off at 7.25am (AEST) today in a grouping with Laura Davies and Gwladys Nocera.
