Have played this course only twice and both occasions were after significant rainfall in winter. The course held up pretty well considering the amount of rain. Greens are fairly quick but challenging in slope. 5 Par 3s and 5 Par 5s make for a challenging day. The fairways are in tip top shape. $36 for social 18 holes, I think it is slightly cheaper mid week. Took 4 hours to get around walking. There are a few spare greens on the back 9 so some local knowledge helps when heading into the back 9 and playing skins - don't put it on an unused green. Friendly pro shop and club staff.

This course for me was summed up by a couple of locals who I joined whilst playing around. They were in the best sense of the word fair dinkum good blokes. The course is a great quality track and is anong the best regional courses you can play. I look forward to playing here each time I'm in town.

To put it simply - a beautiful course. I had played the Wagga City Course the night before, and there is simply no comparison between the two, in almost every department. I played holes 1 through 5, then 12 to 18 (12 holes). The reason for this was pretty silly, but I just could not find the 6th hole! The 5th hole concludes right near the clubhouse, but there was no clear signage about where to go next. In hindsight, I believe it may have been to the right and back 50 metres or so, but it was unusual that it wasn't signed. I even asked some nearby locals - and their suggestion, rather unusually, was to play the 18th hole instead. I couldn't seem to get a clear answer as far as where to go next! So, I played the 12th onwards after wandering for 5 minutes or so. This course is in great condition. I can't recall a single lie on the course that I was unhappy with. The fairways I saw were prestine, with the greens also in very good condition. The pro-shop staff member was friendly (a young fellow), which helped the experience (as the previous night I was not delighted by the customer service at Wagga City Course). I paid $25 for 9 holes, plus $4 for a pull-buggy. I ended up playing a few extra holes. If I lived in the area, I would frequent this course often. I didn't go inside the clubhouse but it appears there is a restaurant which would have been a tremendous spot to be after playing 12 holes in 35 degree temps. I also really enjoyed the layout of this course (far superior to Wagga City Course). The blind tee shots are unique and really make you think about the type of shot you're going to hit. I'd love to go back and play this course again, in full. I'd strongly recommend the Wagga Country Club.

Wagga Wagga Country Club (WWCC) measures 6054m Par 72 with five par 3s ranging from 123-213m, eight par 4s ranging from 307-400m and five par 5s ranging from 457-505m. This course lies on the southwestern shores of the artificial Lake Albert about 5km south of the CBD taking Tarcutta Street / Lake Albert Road / Plumpton Road. The course, like Wagga City Golf Club (WCGC), sits slightly above the CBD at approximately 180-200m above sea level. The course layout has medium sized tree-lined with kikuyu fairways which are thinly covered but quite green in places for early September. The medium-sized bent grass greens were recently cored and the teebeds had lush kikuyu grass. There are 36 bunkers on the course with only 3 holes being entirely bunkerless the 1st, 6th and 16th holes. I noticed some holes had fairway sprinklers with distances on them marked to the centre of the green, whilst other fairways did not. Highlights include: the 472m straight 3rd (index 10) with a blind teeshot over a crest with OOB Nelson Drive on the left and a bern across the fairway about 20m short of the green guarded by 2 bunkers; the 355m slightly uphill 8th (index 4) which gently doglegs 30 degrees to the right from 200m off the tee to a green guarded by 3 bunkers; the 307m straight 9th (index 8) with 2 fairway bunkers 20m and 40m short left of the green guarded by another 2 bunkers short right and back left; the 213m slightly downhill 10th (index 3) with a greenside bunker right of the Par 3. Some good memorable finishing holes include: the 505m uphill dogleg left 15th (index 5) has lake views from the fairway crest with 3 fairway bunkers guarding the dogleg corner with OOB homes on your left which then plays downhill from another fairway bunker 80-110m out from the green guarded by another 3 bunkers; the 379m uphill dogleg left 17th (index 1) is a shorter version of the 15th without any fairway bunkers and only 2 short greenside bunkers to avoid and the 180m 18th (index 7) which plays alongside the lake with 2 short greenside bunkers to avoid. Just like at WCGC I also noticed there is a spare Par 3 hole behind the 15th tee. The par 4s were quite varied and challenging but I found the back nine par 3s were great to par and the par 5s offered a good variety with blind teeshots over undulating fairway crests with some OOB and bunkers to avoid. Wagga is the largest city in the Riverina with over 50000 people with about 62000 people including the city local government area's smaller towns and villages. Wagga is about 4.5 hours from Sydney but 130km (or around 1.5 hours) north of Albury. Played here 5th September 2011 with social green fees now $30. I must agree with other reviewers and say WWCC has a tighter and better layout than WCGC with taller trees and much more bunkering than WCGC. Having played all grass green courses in the Riverina, I must say the layouts and conditioning of WWCC, Cootamundra, Deniliquin and Leeton are amongst the best in the Riverina.
