Played here for the first time on a very windy day, so it was a real challenge. It's a very green course, with plenty of trees & bunkering. The greens were consistent & medium pace & the course fairly long at 5960 meters. Welcoming President & Captain made for a great day & also played in the local comp. A very good experience on a great course.

Cohuna is a fun track. I felt it had generous landing areas and was in good condition. The greens were a little slow, but just hit it slightly harder. Overall, great value and worth a go!

Here is an unbiased review...measures 5960m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 135-178m, ten par 4s ranging from 305-403m and four par 5s ranging from 460-492m. Course has a largely tall red gum tree-lined course with mostly Santa Ana couch fairways with a some kikuyu grass patches on most fairways. The fairways were mostly a little dry with thinly covered patches of either couch or kikuyu grass. The bent grass greens were small-medium sized and played a little slow. There are 10 bunkers on the course. Highlights include: the opening 350m straight 1st (index 4) with the tall red gum trees lining the fairway and Gunbower Creek left of the treeline; the 135m 11th (index 16) with a 2-tier front-sloping green guarded by 3 bunkers; the 403m 14th (index 1) which doglegs 45 degrees right from 200m off the tee with thick trees on the dogleg corner; the 338m 15th (index 3) which doglegs 60 degrees left from 180m off the tee with thick trees and shrubs on the dogleg corner and the 318m dogleg left 18th (index 8) with Gunbower Creek on the left snaking around at the dogleg corner to a green guarded by a bunker short. The par 5s are a little weak with the back nine par 4s the most varied and challenging aspect on the course. The course is not as tight as mentioned by others as the back nine opens up with wider landing areas on the dogleg corners. The 1st, 4th, 6th and 7th fairways have the tallest red gum tree-lined fairways on the entire course. There are a few gentle doglegs and one blind teeshot over a crest 305m dogleg right 3rd (index 11) which make this course more interesting than Kerang but not as challenging as nearby Barham and nowhere near the quality and challenges of Murray Downs which is 1 hour away. And yes, Stuart Appleby was born and breed here and the locals are so proud of this fact that the club entrance has a sign informing (or reminding others) of this fact! Cohuna has around 2000 people about 65km north-west of Echuca along the Murray Valley Highway. Played here 16/09/2011 with $30 green fees. Course is 5km north of the town taking the C265 then turning into Weymouth Road for about 3km. The course is only 20 minutes from Barham-Koondrook.

This is Stewart Appleby's home course and is set between towering river red gums alongside the picturesque Gunbower creek.

Being an ex-local, I have played this course many times. It is not funded by pokies and is of surprising quality for a little town with less than 300 members.

The greens are excellent and the fairways are usually lush and beautifully maintained, even in the hight of summer thanks to an automated watering system and the sandy soil. There are a number of bunkers and the course is relatively flat with gentle undulation.

The main difficulty when playing the course comes from tight fairways and fully grown gum trees that line all fairways. Hits straight and long enable good scoring but miss the fairway and the bush is close by making a direct way home a rarity.

A round at Cohuna usually brings encounters with Kangaroos on the back 9, a variety of river birdlife and occasionally an Emu or two. It is a tranquil environment where there are often only a small number of people on this course (other than Easter and Christmas). The experience is one that epitomises the allure of golf beyond the challenge of the game itself.

It is, in my view, a better course than many of the higher profile River courses with much easier access and a more leisurely feel.
