Played here for the first time & because the last review was so old, I didn't know quite what to expect. It's a fully watered course but that isn't quite what it sounds like. The greens were probably over-watered & could be quite sodden, with almost weird tropical grass poking through the rest. The Tees were all good & had some interesting layouts ahead. It's a mainly flat course but a couple of rises keep it interesting. The fairways were mostly wide but the watered part was quite narrow, so accuracy is required to achieve a good 2nd shot, or running away into the trees will change everything. It's a nice country course & worth a try

Time for an update on this Goulburn Valley course as the 2007 review is slightly out-dated and the 2009 and 2010 reviews need an update on the progress made by the club's volunteers Kyabram Valley View measures 5876m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 133-190m, ten par 4s ranging from 255-389m and four par 5s ranging from 445-484m. Established in the 1950s Kyabram Valley View is over 60 years old with grass greens being on the course for over 40 years. It must be noted that the recent 10-year drought breaking rains have improved the course conditioning here at Kyabram Valley View. Course has wintergreen couch grass fairways and teebeds with pockets of clover grass with red dirt/clay with clumps of clover weeds under the treeline. There are many unbunkered holes with now a total of 10 bunkers on the course. The small-sized (roughly 10-15m long x 6-10m wide) front-sloping bent grass greens are a little slow with many pockets of clover grass which gets sprayed off. There is no full-time greenkeeper here and the course has been run by volunteers for quite some time Highlights include: the risk-reward 255m 4th (index 16) which doglegs 90 degrees left from 220m off the tee with the green hidden along the leftside treeline and guarded by 2 bunkers leftside (or shortside if you go for the green in one!); the 368m slight bend right 11th (index 5) with a hidden red-stake pond in the rightside rough off the tee to an unbunkered green; the 162m 12th (index 9) with a teeshot over a storage pond to a narrow green with bunkers left and right and the same red-stake pond on the 11th on the rightside of the right bunker; the 385m slight bend left 16th (index 1) to one of the largest greens on the course which is 2-tiered front-sloping 20m long; and the 456m slight bend left 18th (index 11) to a green with 2 bunkers rightside. The par 3s (at 3, 9, 12 & 15) play similar as they gently uphill to the green and are generally unbunkered. I agree with others that the pick would be the 12th. The par 4s have a familiarity at the start of the round and this is much the same over the front nine with minimal bunkering and similar slight fairway bending holes. The back nine is more challenging with varied holes and more bunkering. The layout sees the 1st tee and the 9th green alongside each other as you cross over the practice putting green near the clubhouse/car park to the 10th tee where the 18th green is under the practice putting green at the clubhouse. The course has a water rights license which secures its water through an irrigation channel to the course and sprinklers are in place through most, if not all, of the fairways. Course access is from Curr Road about 7km south-west of the town centre. Played here 27/09/2012 with $20 green fees. Interesting and friendly town with the Kyabram Fauna Park to distract you from golf Kyabram Valley View is one of TWO golf courses within the town of around 7500 people, the other being Kyabram Parkland which is all par 3s located in town. Both courses are equally well-conditioned, but I would recommend playing here at Kyabram Valley View and using the Kyabram Parkland as a practice/beginners course.

This is one of the best small country courses I have played. The drought knocked it around somewhat,but it is now well on the way to recovery. The earlier review stating that the club is in financial strife sounds like sour grapes to me, as they have in the past 2 years spent in excess of $100,000 installing an automatic watering system and have sown the course to couch. A great little course for Saturday competitions, very friendly menbers who go out of their way to make you welcome and it is well worth a visit.

During spring 2008 a major redevelopement of this course was carried out. 9 fairways were renovated and sown into wintergreen couch grass. As a result they are now experiencing a wonderful 80% strike rate. They are also intending to sow the front 9 next spring depending on the water allocation. The greens on this course are equal to any in the Goulburn Valley. Incidently as stated in a previous preview re the financial state of the club this is not correct. New administration and curators have really turned around this golf course and I really believe that with the additional 9 holes to be sown in the coming spring , that this will be a top golf course and an added bonus for golfers along the Murray river resort towns,with very reasonable green fees for tourists and club sporting groups.

this course was in much better condition through the late 90’s and is in financial strife.

The course has 3 strong par 3 holes with the 9 th 191 to a tiny green being in my opinion an unfair hole. the pick of the 3’s is the 12th or 15 th.

None of the par 5’s reach any great standards and are all between 442 and 484 mts the 8 th being the best of them.

The pars 4’s here fail to inspire in any way they are all doglegs to some degree except the first and it bends slightly to the left.longest is the 379 mtr 11th pick of the lot goes to the 13 th hole with 2 of the 13 bunkers on this course leaving a narrow entrance to the green for the long hitter.
