Magnificent Murray River Golf Experiences
For fans of the small ball, you'll find a golfing paradise and manicured greens, sweeping fairways and elegant country clubs. Set within the delightful backdrop of Australia’s greatest river, the Murray, the area is an enormous sand belt - perfect for the proliferation of groomed championship and recreational courses.
The amount of sunshine is legendary and so are the picturesque settings for golf. The courses are home to abundant wildlife populations so don’t be surprised if you’re sharing fairways with kangaroos and birds, along with fellow golfers. There’s something to suit every style and handicap, from Barham’s par 73 mid-river masterpiece, to the Rich River Golf Club Resort at Echuca-Moama, another exciting and varied test of golf...they're RV friendly too, making it a great place to park the RV and enjoy a relaxing time.
Don't go past the Cobram Barooga Golf Club located at the Barooga Sports Club. The Cobram Barooga Golf Club offers 36 holes of championship standard spread over the renowned Old Course and the newer West Course. Both courses offer a challenge to the serious golfer and are very playable for novice golfers.
Considering the Murray River epitomises the region, you can’t pass up a round at Australia’s largest golf course, Yarrawonga and Border Golf Club - especially its 470 metre par five which snakes a few metres away from the river’s swirling waters.
The combination of reds and greens at Corowa Golf Club are bound to please - the famous red wine of the nearby Rutherglen region and the 27 holes of undulating fairways and greens of the Corowa courses. A little further along the river is another ‘gem’ of a course, the Commercial Golf Resort Albury.
Other must-plays include the diverse challenges of Tocumwal Golf Club’s fine 36-hole layout, and one of the best maintained golf courses on the river - the Ted Parslow-designed course at Murray Downs Golf Club, near Swan Hill.
Each Murray golf course offers a unique set of challenging and picturesque conditions as well as a comprehensive selection of amenities. There are golf shops, course professionals, plenty of fine dining and cool beverages, and on-course accommodation to augment some excellent golf. So pack the clubs in the car and experience a different 18 every day.

Rutherglen Golf Club - Visit Rutherglen | Rutherglen Accommodation
The Rutherglen Golf Club is an 18-hole sand scrape golf course that is adjacent to the town centre; the clubhouse and first hole are about 500 m from the major town cross road. The course is a testing one of 5321 metres for men and 5068 metres for ladies, with a par of 69 for men and 71 for ladies. The ACR is 66. With the benefits of recycled water, the course is well maintained and remains open throughout the year. Visitors regularly compliment the quality of the course. The ladies run a 9 hole event on Monday mornings, and an 18 hole event on Wednesday mornings. The ladies also run events on the weekends.
The men have 18 hole events on Saturday and Sunday and ladies are welcome to also play at these times. On Friday afternoons there is a chook run for all comers, handicapped and non-handicapped players are all welcome. Playing on sand scrapes seems to phase some golfers but experienced sand scrape players simply regard them as a different challenge to greens. A chip and run game is mostly used and this strengthens the range of skills of the golfer; this is shown by the fact that most local golfers also play very successfully on courses with greens.
Corowa Golf Club - Visit Corowa | Corowa Accommodation
Just metres from the mighty Murray River and boasting magnificent scenery, Corowa Golf Club's course is a 27 hole championship-rated course offering challenges to all levels of golfing ability.

The front 9 fairways are mostly long and open, unlike the old course, offering the variety some golfers may prefer. The course itself is rated in the top 100 public-access golf courses in the country. There are practice areas for both putting and driving, with tuition available from the pro shop.

Cohuna Golf Club - Visit Cohuna | Cohuna Accommodation
Australian golf professional Stuart Appleby comments to US golf digest sums up a growing reputation among golfers who’ve played at Cohuna. That is, “If I had one round to play in my life… it would be there”! A well treed Murray River public golf course, Cohuna's extraordinary fairways and greens are set between towering river red gums alongside the picturesque Gunbower creek on Gunbower Island in Northern Victoria.
Cohuna is a fully watered course. The fairways are lush most times of the year and are beautifully maintained thanks in part to an automated watering system and the sandy soil. The golf course is relatively flat with gentle undulating fairways, winding through the red gum forest, with some creek frontage and the occasional bunker. The main challenge when playing the course comes from tight fairways and fully-grown gum trees that line all fairways. Hitting straight and long will enable you to score well. Chances are that when you miss the fairway, the towering forest red gums will make a direct way to the dance floor a rarity. Golf at Cohuna usually brings encounters with native fauna that include kangaroos, varieties of Murray River bird life and the occasional emu. A nature playground and golfers sanctuary, the tranquil environment of Cohuna golf course epitomises the allure of golf on the Murray beyond the challenge of the game itself. It’s the view of many who have played the course that Cohuna is a better golf course than many of the higher profile Murray River courses.

The course is a mix of flat and undulating land and has watered fairways and greens. Par is 73 for men and 72 for ladies. The course is a nine hole layout and land has been purchased to allow the development of a complete eighteen hole course. Two sets of tees are currently in use and each nine plays differently. Fairways are watered at night so golfers can enjoy an uninterrupted round during playing. In winter Mannum receives very little rain making it an ideal place to play when other golf courses are virtually unplayable due to wet conditions. The course has few bunkers and no water hazards - you will be thankful for this once you deviate from the fairway and experience the rough!

Tailem Bend Golf Club - Visit Tailem Bend | Tailem Bend Accommodation
A nine hole course that improves itself by having tee off’s in different locations for the front and back nine. Another course that is nice and lush despite being in a very dry area. Not a lot of trouble around Tailem Bend with no thick rough to find your ball, but a few trees around the place can cause some concern if wayward. The 6th/15th is an interesting hole which plays as a long par 3 the first time round, and a short par 4 on the back. A nice big green and a narrow opening means this is a great hole. Only one par 5 on the course and thats the 9th/18th which runs along the Princes Highway bringing road trains into play if you happen to get the hook out. Good little nine hole course thats great value too, and as flat as any course you are ever likely to play.
