Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club (Lake course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1927

Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club (Lake course): About an hour's drive from the cities of Albury and Wangaratta, Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club (formerly Yarrawonga & Border GC) sits on the north bank of the Murray River, just inside New South Wales. The town of Yarrawonga is located on the opposite bank in the state of Victoria.

Occupying a quiet, housing-free, natural setting, the golf club is home to two excellent Peter Thomson designed championship layouts, as well as a nine-hole executive course. Although slightly less tree-lined and not quite as tight a test as its companion, the Lake course stands good comparison with the more highly rated Murray course.

Good-width fairways lead you to relatively large greens, often defended by cavernous, elliptical bunkers, and on a couple of occasions by ponds. On the layout's more open back-nine, staying out of the sand traps will require some adept course management and good shot-making.

There is a little more undulation on this course than on the Murray, and also the opportunity to catch glimpses of Lake Mulwala, home to a former forest, and now a mass of tree trunks standing eerily above the water line. If you are visiting Yarrawonga, ensure you allow time to play this very good parkland course in addition to the more renowned Murray layout.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
