COURSE DETAILS

The 18 Hole "Berri Golf Course" is a favourite in the Riverland with beautifully presented grass greens. Established flowering gums, Natives and Mallee trees line all fairways. An easy walking layout makes for a very enjoyable game with small hills, bumps and bunkers breaking the picturesque landscape.

This course could be really good if it was maintained to the standard of other in the Riverland. Having said that, I always look to play it because it offers something that many other courses do not. Real variety. The feel from front 9 to back 9 is completely different. The front feels tighter and windier, and the back 9 after the 11th seems to open up more, allowing you to rip it a bit. The standout holes for me were the 7th, 9th, 10th , 12th & 15th. You have golfed your ball well here if you play to your handicap.

The Big River Golf Club at Berri is located on the northern side of town on the Old Sturt Highway and split in half by Shiell Rd where the pro shop is located. The front nine is surrounded by quiet farm paddocks with a great contrast between the dry scrub and the well manicured fairways and greens. There are numerous bunkers spread throughout but no water to contend with. There are plenty of dogleg holes on the course and a couple to mention are the 15th and 18th. Most golfers would naturally take driver off the tee but if there is no shape on the ball it can easily run through the fairway into dry and sandy rough. Berri is part of the scenic Riverland region and along with other courses like Renmark, Loxton, Bamera and Waikerie make for a great relaxing golfing getaway. $33 for 18 holes or $25 if you stay at the Big River Motel.

Last Riverland course played. How about we forget about 'resort' and try for great country course. Greens, as per the whole area , are just about spot on. Fairways are hot and cold, usually good but preferred lie on your fairway covers those still a little rough. Bunkers here don't seem to come into play that much. No real stand out holes, just back and forward with crossing back to tees common. No clubhouse as such but the tavern next door is pretty flash. Thus the 19th hole golf talk is not a part of the experience. The 'Resort' is on the other side of the course from the clubhouse/Tavern and that's where buggy hire is done. When the resort owners (here and Renmark) work out what is the main point of a Golf experience the Riverland could be something special. Thanks to Gordon for the great company. The Relic.

Berri's Big River Golf & Country Club measures 6034m Par 71 with four par 3s ranging from 150-200m, eleven par 4s ranging from 305-391m and three par 5s ranging from 455-497m. Course has a mix of couch/kikuyu grass fairways with mostly medium sized bent grass greens. The front nine is on the northern side of Shiell Road whilst the back nine is on the southern (or clubhouse and proshop) side of Shiell Road with an interesting layout with holes 10-14 then you cross past the proshop and clubhouse to play holes 15-18. I agree the layout has you walking back to the next tee on at least 8 occasions but there are sprinklers in use on most holes and there are 24 bunkers on the course which adds to the challenge and conditioning. Course is flat and easy to walk with wide tree-lined fairways. There are mostly kikuyu grass tee mounds with only a few couch tee mound areas. There are no water hazards in general play. Highlights include: the 464m straight 4th (index 15) with a teeshot over a crest with 4 bunkers short and around the green; the 163m 6th (index 16) with couch grass green surrounding the trees; the 390m slight dogleg left 8th (index 1) with 2 greenside bunkers; the 320m slight dogleg left around the motel accommodation 11th (index 11) with a fairway bunker left at the dogleg corner and another 80m short on the right to a green with 2 shortside bunkers; the 150m slightly uphill 16th (index 14) with 4 bunkers; and the 391m slight dogleg left 18th (index 2) with a bunker 20m short right and another greenside bunker right. Played here 1st October 2011 with $30 green fees. Course access is from Shiell Road. Berri is one of the larger towns in the Riverland, with only Renmark having a higher population. Worth a hit but every grass green course (Renmark, Loxton, Barmera and even Waikerie) in the area are similar to each other. No Riverland course is overly challenging and neither stands out over the other. Great clubhouse at Berri though.

While the course is usually in very good condition, and the facilities are certainly first class, the layout doesn't do the course any favours. On multiple holes a walk back to the next tee is required, which can get a little tedious and frustrating. That being said, the course isn't without charm. The par 3 6th is a challenging par 3 with trees all around the green, and between the tee and green as well. The 11th also being a good test due to the three or four bunkers on the hole that require an accurate drive on what is a short par 4. Like all the riverland courses the greens are generally excellent and the 19th makes this course well worth the walk. TandM
