Organising Murray trip end of April for some mates a week on our way back to Sydney looking for an overnight stopover at either Howlong or Thurgoona can get $103/head Howlong and $139 (play and stay) which is the best?
We are staying at Commercial Club Golf Resort on the way down $107/head is this where we should stop o our way back?
Both are good tracks, although I have not played Thurgoona for a few years now. If it is wet, Thurgoona turns to a bog pretty quickly from memory. Played Howlong last year and it was in great condition. My opinion for what it is worth is that with the $$$'s Howlong have been spending on upgrading the course, it may be the front runner. They didn't poach the super from Royal Melbourne for nothing. Corowa which is about another 5 mins further out, is also a very nice, well prepared track.
Downside is that Howlong is about a 20 minute trip out from Albury, whereas, Thurgoona is on the way home basically. Accommodation at both is quite good,
Codboy might be able to set you straight as a sort of local..
You could cancel the trip altogether, get the group to save up their leave and come and join the rest of the maniacs at the ISG Nationals on the Gold Coast in October. No brainer really.
