Favouring the straight hitter, the popular Murray Course meanders through towering river gums and sandy river flats where numerous lakes and lagoons are ready to swallow the errant shot.
1Hole 1. Drive is positional, depending on which level the pin is placed – your approach can be obstructed by over hanging limbs on either side of the fairway.

3Hole 3. Straight away Par 4, Short and right of the green is a conservative leave, trouble awaits shots finishing through the green or to the right or left.
