It’s amazing how good a golf course can look even in the
middle of severe water restrictions! Especially so in autumn when
there is so much colour.
The course was green following some rain a week ago yet all the
storages are almost empty. The fairways are noticeably poorer
than when I last played here a couple of years ago but they are
falling from otherwise very high standards. In saying that
they’re still fine to play on perhaps with preferred lies
needed in some areas. I had assumed they would be significantly
worse than they were given the signs stating Stage 4 water
restrictions around the town.
The greens are still in excellent shape.
This is a lovely little country town course, set near a creek on
the outskirts of town and parkland in style. Plenty of trees but
not too much to make the course penal. In fact there is generally
only a line or two of trees separating the adjacent fairways so
you can’t get into too much trouble on this course. The
course isn’t long but with a number of dogleg holes it
isn’t short enough to really attack either. The lack of
bunkers makes play easier too.
Small clubhouse only open during the few weekly comps otherwise
use the honesty box.
Holes of note:
The first is a disappointing par 3 which serves only to get you
onto the course proper.
The 4th is a short par 4 that calls for a well shaped drive to
allow an easy attempt for birdie. The green sits down near the
stream which borders one side of the course and is in a very
5, 6 and 7 all parallel one another and are standard country golf
The 9th is an uphill dogleg hole that continues a format found
regularly on this course, that is a requirement to be able to
work shots off the tee so as to take advantage of the doglegs.
They are generally not long enough to blast a drive down and then
worry about the turn, so being able to shape the ball (the way
you actually want rather than my ‘random’ shaping!)
is a great advantage.
The 15th runs parallel to the creek at the back of the course and
the 16th is a par 3 with an OOB paddock along it’s entire
Well worth a hit if in the NE of Victoria (which the marketing
people call ‘Legends, Wine and High country).
When I visited this country golf course in Autumn 2003, it was in
absolutely top condition, with absolutely superb greens and
fairways. The course is located in a beautiful scenic valley, and
features several outstanding specimens of native trees. The
layout has several interesting and challenging holes, but the
lack of any bunkers and a few sets of parallel holes of similar
length was the only drawback. This course is obviously well
looked after and is worth a visit when in the NE Victoria region.
