Murray Downs world famous for its superb golf course
Murray Downs Station was an 102,000 acre property across the Murray River from Swan Hill. Owned jointly by Suetonius Henry and his brother Charles Myles Officer, sons of Sir Robert Officer. Suetonius and his wife, Mary Lillias Rigg Cairns, resided at the station. Murray Downs remains a working station today. Source
Murray Downs Golf Course History
Murray Downs Golf & Country Club Resort is situated in heart of Kidman Reid's historic Murray Downs sheep station on the opposite side of the mighty Murray River at Swan Hill in Victoria.
Construction of the Murray Course commenced in mid October 1988 and was formally opened in March 1991.
Ted Parslow (Course Designer) has ensured that the most important ingredient for low scoring is playing to position. Fairway shaping, mounding, bunkers, tees, lakes, and green orientation have been carefully considered so as to maximise the reward for the golfer who plays to position. Today, over-adventurous shots are often severely penalised.
