Definitely worth a hit. No bunkers, but a nice layout that will still test you. don't stray to far off the fairways and there are a couple of grass bunkers which are harder than sand if your ball sits right down. Lovely clubhouse and verandah enables great viewing of the 18th.

Waited until I played most of the Riverland courses before the reviews. This one is a beauty. O.K. there are no bunkers but greens are good, plenty of grass on the fairways and a very nice clubhouse under new ownership. If I had to pick only one course to play in the Riverland (which you would be stupid to do) this would be it. Considering we played in the pouring rain and I scored badly, it still made an impression. Played 24/Sept. The Relic

The Waikerie Golf Club now known as he Waikerie Golf & Country Club has new owners since Oct 1st 2013. Now with an updated Clubhouse with large wrap a round deck completes the whole golfing experience at argubly the best course in the Riverland. With no bunkers or water hazards the thick long grass certainly still makes it a challenging course. Green fees have not changed are are still just $30 for 18 holes. Worth a stop on your way through the Riverland.

Measures 6064m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 121-177m, ten par 4s ranging from 296-402m and four par 5s ranging from 449-481m. The course uses one-third reclaimed water from the town and two-thirds from the river allocation for its irrigation. Course has poa/Santa Ana couch fairways in the summer months with the rye grass coming through and dominating over the poa/couch in the winter months. There is rye grass rough with red dirt and weeds under the treeline which is quite playable at the moment with some moisture underneath in the summer it could be difficult. The medium-sized bent grass greens have good speed and at the moment are the best in the Riverland. The course layout plays surprisingly challenging despite having no bunkers. The huge double 13th and 15th greens was also a present surprise to see in the country. Highlights include: the opening 402m slight dogleg right 1st (index 1); the 397m slight dogleg right 7th (index 2) with an elevated tee mound and OOB fence along the right; the short 296m slight dogleg right 10th (index 13) with an OOB vineyard along the left from the dogleg corner; the 381m 12th (index 6) which doglegs 45 degrees left from 240m off the tee; and the 481m 18th (index 10) which doglegs 45 degrees left from 240m off the tee to a 2-tier front sloping bunkerless green. There are 12 holes where the flags are not visible from the tee mound which adds to its challenge as the fairways are quite wide. I agree the layout is impressive and challenging but would like to see some bunkers as Waikerie is the only Riverland course without a single bunker. All 5 Riverland courses are over 6000m with Berri's 6034m Par 71 just being the shortest layout. Worth a hit but every grass green course (Berri, Barmera, Loxton and even Renmark) in the area are similar to each other. Played here 3rd October 2011 with $30 green fees. Course access is on Dunlop Road just off Playford Road about 10km west of the town centre past Ramco Lagoon. Waikerie is the smallest of the major Riverland towns with around 2000 people with around 7000 people in the surrounding district. Waikerie is about 30 minutes west of Berri and 45 minutes from Renmark.

Waikerie is listed as the shortest of the Riverland courses and the only one under 6000 metres, but you wouldn't know it after the front nine. A couple of par 4's around the 400 metre mark and some longish par 5's will definately have you scratching your head. Once you start on the back though you will see why as the holes are consistently shorter. The course is well designed if a little up and down. However, because of the way the 1st and 10th are set out you don't necessarily notice. Perhaps disappointingly the two par 3's on the front are very similar, one of the only criticism's of the course. The back nine has two elevated tee off's, on the 11th and 14th, the later in particular being superb as the hole winds away from you. 6 of the 7 holes on the back that aren't par 3's dog leg in some fashion, and when contrasted with the much straighter front nine is an excellent change. You'll want to keep it on the grass because the rough is very sandy and can be tough to hit clean shots from. But if you do you should thoroughly enjoy your round here, at what is argubly the best of the riverland courses. TandM
