4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club (Murray course): Occupying a quiet, housing-free, natural setting, Yarrawonga Mulwala (formerly Yarrawonga & Border GC) is home to two excellent Peter Thomson designed championship golf courses, as well as a nine-hole executive course. More tree-lined and arguably a tighter test than its companion, the Murray course is generally higher rated than the also excellent Lake course.

In its natural wooded setting, where towering gum trees line the holes, your full repertoire of shot-making will be needed to score well on the Murray layout. Beyond the relatively flat, springy and sometimes tight fairways, large expanses of swampy woodland lie in wait. At the par-5 5th hole you play right alongside the Murray River, cheered on by the lively resident population of cockatoos, rosellas and the like. Don't be too surprised if the odd kangaroo also skips past.

Water plays its part on one or two other holes, although never quite as scenically or splendidly as at the 5th. Beware the many "optical" traps that Thomson has created on this flattish terrain. On several occasions the bunkering creates the impression of approach shots being shorter than they really are - trust the indicated yardages, rather than your eyes! The greens here are not overly sculpted, but still home to many subtle breaks and borrows that will require a fine touch with the putter.
