Commercial Golf Resort (formerly Albury golf club) measures 5774m Par 70 with six par 3s ranging from 136-198m, eight par 4s ranging from 316-407m and four par 5s ranging from 453-506m. Albury Golf Club was established in 1899 in Lavington and land was acquired at its present location in 1924. In 1920s AGC was redesigned as an 18-hole layout. In 2003 Commercial Club amalgamated with Albury Golf Club to take over management. The Commercial Club owns the golf course and the motel which has some good on-course accommodation options along the 18th fairway. The tree-lined parkland style layout has kikuyu grass fairways and is in the process of seeding all its tees with Santa Ana couch grass. The small-medium sized penncross A1 bent grass greens are a little bumpy and play a little slow. With a total of 30 bunkers on the course there are only 2 bunkerless holes on the closing par 3s at 15 & 17. There is one storage pond in front of the 2nd tee which is used for course irrigation and bore water pumps into dam. Gentle doglegs feature on this course with many flags not visible from the teebed. You start your round at the eastern end of the car park and play 10 holes back to the clubhouse with holes 11-18 being played on western side towards Nail Can Hill Reserve. The concrete lined Bungambrawatha Creek along holes 3-5 form the eastern boundary of the course, whilst Ryan Road forms the northern boundary and North Street forming the southern boundary of the course. Highlights include: the 355m 3rd (index 1) which doglegs 45 degrees right from 210m off the tee with OOB Bungambrawatha Creek along the right that also cuts across the fairway 40m from the green guarded by 2 bunkers; the 390m slight bend right 6th (index 4) plays gently uphill to a front-sloping green guarded by a bunker short left; the 184m slightly downhill teeshot 7th (index 6) with banks and hollows on the right and a bunker short left; the 178m 10th (index 11) with a well-guarded green in front of clubhouse protected by 3 bunkers; and the short 335m slight bend left 18th (index 12) with an elevated tee above the fairway which slopes left and OOB homes, town's water storage tanks and motel along the right rough to a small green guarded by 2 leftside bunkers. Despite the opening up-and-back par 5s being fairly unchallenging, the course's best attributes are the variations in their par 3s. The highest points on the course being the elevated teebeds at 16 & 18, and the layout is a little odd that you cross the 6th fairway to reach the 8th tee, whilst the greens on the back nine are generally smaller than those greens on the front nine. Played here 29/7/2012 with $30 Monday-Saturday green fees and $20 Sunday green fees. Course access is from North Street approximately 170m above sea level at the northern end of Kiewa Street near the Albury CBD. Overall, the Par 70 layout at Albury is a decent course without being too challenging even from the back plates and plays similar to the other nearby Par 70 layout at Howlong which is 30km west along the Riverina Highway. With a population of over 100 000 in the Albury-Wodonga urban area there are only 3 golf courses (Albury, Thurgoona and Wodonga). The Par 72 layouts at Thurgoona and Wodonga are fairly similar, whilst Albury is a more traditional tree-lined suburban parkland layout. Not bad terrace overlooking the course at the clubhouse and decent practice facilities with a putting green, practice fairway along the 1st tee and a chipping green underneath the clubhouse.

A club with a long history (founded in 1899) which has been pretty much ignored by the Commercial Club after they took over operation early in the last decade. If you love a golf club which focuses on poker machines rather than golf then this will beright up your alley. The course itself is probably the better of the two Albury courses in that positional play is a little more important than at Thurgoona and there is a greater variety of holes.

Very happy with the condition of the course. Fairways and greens were superb this time of the year. Hole locations were confusing as a first visitor. Had lots of fun and will be back soon.

Course has been closed for the last couple of weeks. Need a submarine to play it.

I can provide an update on the course and its current condition, having played it last week. The nines appear to have been reversed, as it now finishes with a shortish par 4 to a very small green. The Par 3 is now the 10th. The Riverina is gripped by drought, but Albury is standing up well. The kike fairways help, but the grass is still alive and mostly still green. The greens are in excellent condition. Not a really top-notch course, but still an enjoyable game.

Albury Golf Club is a step back in time to golf course design from the 1950’s, with the exception being the newly-contructed par 3 18th.

Albury is a very good track, quite hilly near the end of the front 9, with some of the fastest sloping greens anywhere. The fairways are quite narrow in places, with large mature gum trees lining these fairways. Accuracy off the tee really is at a premium at Albury.

The shortish par 4 8th is a standout for me…elevated tee, fantastic views over Albury & the surrounding countryside, with the Snowy Mountains in the background. The 8th is an even better hole if you manage to knock it on the green & then 3-putt for par.
