I ticked off another fine Australian course, sometimes you can play great courses locally in and around the big cities without travelling to far, but today's location was a fair hike. Out west on the NSW / VIC border at the heart of the Murray River. Murray Downs Resort. This course is currently is great condition considering that on the drive out here, you travel through towns listing water restrictions are required to be adhered everyday. Fairways are outstanding for a "country course" Huge green complexes greet the golfer :) Great bunkering on display as well as great use of water features. Visually stunning course. The routing is great! and change of direction and occasional wind keep the golfer having fun And that's exactly what I encountered! Especially after almost eagling the 1st hole from a fairway bunker 60m out! Played 1 - 11 by myself, then linked up with Brendan and his 14 yr old son Cam from The Northern club in Melbourne who are also country members of the MD track. #thecourseliveduptothehype!
