A couple of hours drive from Adelaide, Burra Golf Club is set amongst peaceful rolling hills and pastoral farms and is split by the Barrier Highway. The elevated 1st tee which sits next to clubhouse offers spectacular views of the course and the surrounding countryside. The short par 4 3rd runs nervously close to the highway and is a left-handers slice nightmare! In fact, all of the OOB areas linger on the left side of the fairways. Water is in play on the 384m 5th hole 230m from the tee and also on the right side of the putting surface. There are no bunkers on the course and most greens sit relatively level with the wide fairways. The quiet country atmosphere is the main reason for a round at Burra and with its close proximity to the Clare Valley makes for a great golfing day out. $20 for unlimited golf.

Very enjoyable, rather tight, course with a social, friendly crew. Turn up Thursday at 0900 for 9holes of relaxed golf. Saturday morning is slightly more serious. Preferred lie on the fairways which are pretty well grassed. No bunkers but clever tree placement(thanks a lot, God) makes for enough trouble. Watch out for speeding grey nomads as you cross the highway mid round. Greens can vary with the seasons so don't get too precious but they're mainly fast. Twenty bucks and a couple of ales makes for a pleasant day out in a beautiful old town. Say g'day to barman Eddie and Captain Thommo for me. The Relic.

Time for an update and not sure how it rates as a 5-star "golf at its absolute best" but Burra measures 5682m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 99-182m, ten par 4s ranging from 280-405m and four par 5s ranging from 418-458m. Course has a mix of natural / winter rye grass fairways which were a little dry in patches. There is some rye/natural grass in the rough with patches of couch grass around the bunkerless greens. There are couch grass greens which were dry and yellow in patches. The small tee mounds have couch grass but there are no bunkers on the course. Interesting flat, easy walking short tree-lined layout sees you play holes 1-3, then you cross over the busy Barrier Highway (careful as vehicles are travelling at 110km/h) to play holes 4-13, then cross back over the Barrier Highway to play holes 14-18. Highlights include: the 386m straight 5th (index 3) with a dam 15m short right of the bunkerless green and a water hazard across the fairway 80-120m out from the green; the 293m slight dogleg left 6th (index 9) with an OOB fence on the left and the same dam in the right trees at the dogleg corner; the 182m 15th (index 8) with an OOB fence on the left; the 375m straight 16th (index 2) with a wide fairway and hollows on the left of the green; and the 351m slight double dogleg left then right 18th (index 4) which plays uphill for the last 100m out from the green. The par 5s are quite short and weak here. There are about 7 holes where the flag is not visible from the tee mound as there is a slight dogleg, but apart from this most holes are fairly straight forward. Burra is a small town in the northern Mount Lofty Ranges with around 1000 people. The course is similar but not as varied as Clare which is about 30 minutes south. Burra is one of only three grass green courses from the Adelaide plains to Port Augusta the others being Clare and Balaklava. Also, Burra is the last grass green course on the Barrier Highway travelling east on the Barrier Highway to Broken Hill. Played here 23/09/2011 with $20 green fees. Course is 1km north of the town centre on the Barrier Highway. Clubhouse has views over the first hole and there is no full-time professional in town. Burra is a State-heritage town and can be reached in a day-trip from Adelaide. Nothing special, but worth a hit.

the first thing that strikes on this fine country golf course is the long well manicured fairways, the grass here is kept extremely well, being regularly mowed and watered resulting in a course that is not only a pleasure to play upon but also to walk round. the greens themselves are very good, tricky in camber making for some challenging putts, but still a pleasure to use with very good ball speed as opposed to the regular sand greens. 8it is a challenging course with a few interesting doglegs and each fairway is bordered by small trees making it tricky should you clice or hook slightly. and also with a couple of short holes tempting you to try for that ever elusive hole -in-one! all in all a great course well worth the detour should you be passing with the clubs.
