Quite a pleasant course to play. Was in fairly reasonable nick, with fairways mown nicely and fairly green. Reasonable variety in the par 4's, some shorter ones but quite a over four were 375m +, with dog-legs and some basic elevation changes. Par 5's were the Wodonga's biggest downfall - I had no trouble at all reaching the first three with two strokes - one with a four iron and one with a 5 iron! Only 18 played as a true par 5. Par threes were all quite long, none less than 150m. Greens were soft and receptive, enough undulations to keep you interested, however the members need to buy some ball mark repairers, plenty of work to do there. Quite slow, but I didn't mind that. Overall a very enjoyable morning for me and I am more than happy to recommend this course.

Had a very pleasant 18 holes here. The greens and fairways were in good nick, off the fairways were a bit bare but you're not meant to be there anyway. Only criticism's were we had to tee off by 8am because of a women's days but we barely saw anyone else or many cars in the car park and the pro. I walked in to the pro shop to pay wearing thongs as I hadn't put my golf shoes on yet, as I normally do anywhere and was asked quite sarcastically if I had proper shoes to play golf in! I have only been subjected to this derision on one other occasion in the last 20 years.

Time for unbiased reviewWodonga Golf Club was established in the 1920s and relocated to its present West Wodonga location which opened its redesigned layout in 1982 and now measures 6173m Par 72 with four par 3s ranging from 152-195m, ten par 4s ranging from 327-394m and four par 5s ranging from 438-535m. Course has a mixture of winter ryegrass and Santa Ana couch grass fairways and teebeds. The medium-sized bentgrass greens are fairly flat with subtle break and play a little slow. The layout has the natural Felltimber Creek which is generally out of play splitting 7 holes (9-15) on the eastern (clubhouse) side of the creek and 11 holes (1-8 & 16-18) on the western side of the creek. Every hole is bunkered with a total of 35 bunkers on the course. Homes line the leftside of the fairway on holes 2-7, with the back nine fairways also having this similar feature. There are numerous dams and ponds on the course, none of which come into general play from tee to green. Gentle doglegs feature on this course with many flags not visible from the teebed. Highlights include: the opening 385m slight bend left 1st (index 1) plays gently uphill to a green with a leftside bunker; the 195m slightly downhill 6th (index 11) to a wide but shallow green with a leftside bunker; the 159m 8th (index 9) to a smaller green guarded by 2 bunkers and Felltimber Creek further left; the 172m slightly uphill 11th (index 12) with a bunker short right and a pond far right of the bunker; the 394m slight bend left 13th (index 2) which plays gently downhill to a front-sloping green guarded by a rightside bunker; the signature 152m 16th (index 16) with a teeshot over the Felltimber Creek gully to a green with a bunker short; and the 535m slight bend right 18th (index 4) with Felltimber Creek far right and a fairway which slopes left to a green guarded by 3 bunkers. The course's best attributes are the variations in their par 3s (at 6, 8, 11 & 16) with elevation differences from tee to green and good bunkering. There are no short par 4s shorter than 300m in length or no long par 4s over 400m in length, which makes the par 4s boring with similar length with a slight fairway bend left or right around the 200m mark off the tee. Overall, despite being the longest layout in north-eastern Victoria, Wodonga is a decent course without being too challenging, even from the back plates, with a striking design flaw which shortens the layout: longer par 4s play gently downhill and the shorter par 4s and par 5s play gently uphill from tee to green. As such, the par 5s (at 4, 7, 10 & 18) are weak and short and all, apart from the 18th, can be reached in 2 shots with minimal fuss. Played here 11th August 2012 off the back plates with $30 green fees. Course access is from Clubhouse Place (off Parkers Road) with approximate course elevation of 180m above sea level near the La Trobe University. The new clubhouse opened in August 2012 which looks good, but the club currently still has fairly basic practice facilities. With a population of over 100 000 in the Albury-Wodonga urban area there are only 3 golf courses (Albury, Thurgoona and Wodonga). The Par 72 layouts at Thurgoona and Wodonga are fairly similar, whilst Albury is a more traditional tree-lined suburban parkland layout. I recommend Corowa which is less than 30 minutes west of Wodonga via Rutherglen.

Played at Wodonga many times over the years, and have seen it in every condition, good - great - and otherwise. It was about 2 months ago that I played it last. The greens were very ordinary, full of weeds and, disease. They had recently verti-drained the greens but had gone to far and, they were very uneven. Fairways were in good nic. Tees hadn't been mowed for a while and it looked like the tee markers had been in the same place for two or three weeks. I have to say that something will have to change before I'll go back again, bad experience!

I played this course over the Christmas break, and after not playing it for over 5 years, I was delighted how much the course has matured. The fairway coverage was excellent given the hot weather the area has been experiencing, and the trees have matured over time. One previous review said that it was a bit easy, and some of the fairways may be a bit straight. This may be true, but I found that if you stray from the fairways, its not that easy get in the hole in regulation. The local SS&A service club has taken over management of the golf course and club house (a nice place at the end of a round) ensuring money is available to keep the course in good condition, so you can be assured of a good game of golf when you turn up.
