Played here over 3 days of a group weekend & enjoyed the course & staff very much. Fairways were terrific but it took a while to get used to the damp conditions on green approaches from over watering. For that reason there wasn't any run around greens & all approached had to be directly at the pin. Good consistent bunkers & tricky but readable greens. A good test of golf with a par 73, ACR 72 & slope 127. Would highly recommend playing this course to anyone.

This is a good course don't get me wrong. The fairways r great, greens incredible but it lacked something for me. Creativity. I know it architecturally designed but I just went away a little disappointed. Can't explain why but prefer Murray downs. More creative I feel. Still good but I'm not hurrying back.

Time for an update...now measures 6140m Par 73 with four par 3s ranging from 132-192m, nine par 4s ranging from 289-392m and five par 5s ranging from 445-494m. Course has smooth couch fairways and teebeds. The front nine greens are medium to mostly large-sized bent grass greens. The back nine greens are smaller in size. Overall, the greens are smooth with good consistent roll. There are 39 bunkers on the entire course. Highlights include: the 365m straight 1st (index 4) with 2 fairway bunkers 100-150m out of the green on the left with red stake pond left and right short of the green guarded by a bunker short left; the 476m straight 2nd (index 7) with 2 fairway bunkers off the tee with another 2 bunkers 50m short right of the green guarded by 2 leftside bunkers; the 392m straight 5th (index 1) called Gallipoli with a huge bunker with 5m high face in front of the green across the fairway and the 192m 15th (index 5) with 2 bunkers guarding the small front-sloping green. Apart from the 2nd all par 5s are quite weak. The fairway landing areas are quite wide and although the front nine start is quite challenging most holes are straight. Course access is about 2km north of Barham on Moulamein Road. Barham is a town on the Murray River of around 1200 people about 1 hour west of Deniliquin. Played here 16/09/2011 with $35 green fees. Better condition than nearby Cohuna and Kerang but not as good as Murray Downs. I'd recommend anyone to play here if in the Swan Hill area which is less than 1 hour's drive.

Love playing this course every year. Yes,the 4 new holes at Barham have been a big success giving the front 9 an ideal blend of old and new. Yes, the par 5 2nd is a beauty (3 of the best are required to hit this in reg). As is the bunker surrounded par 3 3rd to test your distance control. Hole 4 brings you back to the old course and you know you're on the Murray. The back 9 plays a tad short giving all golfers a chance to make birds on the 3 par 5s. If you're on your game, this is your chance to come home like the proverbial house-on. Having said that there are still some fabulous long par 4s in holes 11 & 17.2 of my favourites. The smaller greens will no doubt challenge your shots coming in and your short game will need to be on the money. The long par 3 15th hole ruins my card every time. At 190 odd meters, the only safe zone is short and straight. If you don't hit your irons a mile you'd be better off laying up (of course I never do). Take wood and spray it left or right and I can guarantee you're looking at double.

I Totally agree with the above review.The 2nd is one the best par 5’s I have experienced.There is OB on right,water down left and Bunkers either side of not so wide fairway.It is defineately a placement hole with a large elevated green.This 18 handicaper has not yet reached the green in regulation, I try again in March.The third hole is a 190 odd par 3,elevated green with large bunkers either side.The signature hole on this Course is the 380m par4 5th.Straight Heavy Rivergum tree lined fairway tee to another elevated green.Protecting the front of green is the deepest and widest Sand Trap I have ever encounted about 30m accross and 10m vertical .A long tee shot is required to have a chance of taking on the Sand to reach in 2.A lay up is the go as many a Card has been ruined at this hole nicknamed Gallipolli.

Was always a "nice little course" on the Murray, but the addition of 4 new holes on the front 9 make this course close to the jewel in the crown along the mighty river. It's more of a challenge without being outrageously difficult - subtle changes, adding bunkers right in landing areas & bunkering existing greens. The new 1st offers a wide fairway, but the mid-iron approach is tricky, with sand at the front & water behind a wide, but very slick green. The rest of the course follows a similar pattern - you need accuracy, but if this 18-handicapper can scratch around it and have a ball, anyone can.
