Located less than a 3-hour drive north of Melbourne, with golf holes laid out close to the winding waters of the Murray River, Cobram Barooga Golf Club boasts two 18-hole golf courses – the Old and the West – which were brought into play in the early 1970s.
The Old course has the reputation as a tighter track, with the newer West course offering greater latitude with more generous playing areas and bigger greens. Both layouts feature wonderful couch-grassed fairways lined by gum trees and beautiful bent grass greens.
Configured with two returning nines, each of which end with a long par five hole towards the clubhouse, the Old course measures 5,850 metres from the tips, playing to a par of 72. The signature hole might well be the shortest par three on the card, the 137-metre 12th.
