Like Calival,Korong Vale is little more than a dot on the map,another unheralded,almost unknown sandscrape course.As at calival Iapproached Korong with low expectations-and again I was pleasantly surprised.Altho not as good as the nearby Wedderburn course(also sandscrapes)Korong Vale is agreeably green in June,with lightly sanded scrapes giving a very fair roll,fairways with a good cover of common grass-enough not to need preferred lies,only lightly treelined.Tees are poor(use teepegs)and greenside approaches are better than they look. The course measures 5459m,par 69,ACR 67,with 5xpar3 144-229m,11x par4 269-425m and 2xpar5 471-493m.Despite its short length,it is a spacious course,with generous fairways,easy walking and mostly straight holes;excepting the 7th &8th.Overall it is a gentle,relaxing game of golf,spiced by a couple ofsubstantial par 4s(1st 400m,13th 425m.)a tough par3(2nd 229m)and a respectable par 5(6th 495m).In contrast there are also half a dozen short par 4s. Holes I liked included; 3rd 140m to a scrape oslanded among mounds and trees. 8th 305m dogleg right @ 150m,"guardian tree"17m short of scrape. 17th 330m trees randomly scattered between tee and green-do you ploay over or try to thread between?Not great but different. Korong Vale is not among Victoria"sbest sandscrapes but it is enjoyable and a minor miracle that a community of less than 200 can sustain and maintan a golf course,let alone one as well conditioned as this.Well done to those responsible!

There are black soil scrapes here which is open from roughly April-September. Basic golf facilities here. Course access is 1.5km east of the railway line in town and about 13km north of Wedderburn. Korong Vale is a small town with less than 200 people at the centre of the Shire of Loddon on the main road between the townships of Wedderburn and Boort. Closest 18-hole grass greens are in Bendigo which is about 1 hours drive east.
