Coomealla – Dareton S.W. NSW – Good design, always good condition and plays extremely tough. It’s truly a classic Australian country golf course set amongst the huge gums with the Murray river meandering by, roos lazing in the shade and cold cold beer on a hot day.

Yes must agree, I started golf at Coomealla around 14 years ago. It is very similar to the Yarrawonga murray course only tighter, certainly worth a hit if you are up around Mildura.

Yeah, I'd agree with Calderwood. It's beautiful and qualifies... it doesn't even have a town attached to it, just built into the bottom of the escarpment. Albion Park is closest... bout 3 mins away.

Maggie Island has a good litte 9 hole course, played there in march this year & enjoyed it

All you get from looking back is a bad neck!!

Not a bad track that one. Another just outside Mackay is Pioneer Valley. 18 hole course, 4 or 5 fairly plain holes but some of the others are very well laid out & a good test of course management.

I wouldn't go that far Chanceman. Are you talking about the long driveway amongst the trees to the club house, as a comparison??? Don't get me wrong, I've played there heaps but Augusta it's not.

Okay whilst everybody else is self promoting I had better get into the act as well. Coonabarabran for mine, fails slightly on the 2 Pub test, but has a very challenging 9 hole/18 tee grass green golf course. Which incidentally after 13 plus inches of rain looks sensational, bit of a shame about some of the damage caused during all the rain but nothing that can't be fixed. Course is playing its full 6190 mtrs plus, no run at all at present. Oh yes it also has an honesty box, great cold beer and an annual fee of $165.00.

I'd give Coonabarabran the thumbs up too although it has been many years since I played it. I was impressed with the variety that the club achieved with it's second set of tees. Par fours became par fives etc etc. As well as that the hospitality, especially on open days was, like most of the clubs in Western NSW absolutely terrific. Cheers Ken

Myrtleford is also a nice little track I played several years ago. I think I paid $5 for the round & the push buggy was free. It has some ripping holes for such a small town golf course.

Anglesea - Busy this time of year but top course! (PS This is a very biased opinion!) Peterborough VIC - Great little course! If your taking the mrs for a drive to see the 12 Apostles, be sure to chuck the clubs in the back and check out this little gem.

Wynyard in Tasmania is a great 9 holer, it is always in great condition, it is right beside the ocean with some great holes that can play differently depending on wind. It has great bunkering and major variations in types of holes.
