The largest public access golf facility in Australia, the Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort is situated alongside the Murray River and home to 45 holes of golf. The club was founded in Victoria in 1897, but moved across the Murray and into New South Wales during the early 20th century when farmland at Mulwala enabled them to expand their golf course to a full 18. That course was redesigned by Sam Berriman in the 1950s, and later again by Peter Thomson and Michael Wolveridge in the 1980s. Thomson and Wolveridge also added the Murray Course in the 1980s, and a 9-hole Executive course.
All 45 holes at Yarrawonga Mulwala are generally well maintained, and interchangeable with each other as the nines all have a consistent feel across the property. The Lake Course differs from the Murray Course most noticeably via its more open, expansive playing corridors and man-made water features. Some of the original Sam Berriman holes standout for their subtle simplicity, such as the drivable 8th which is set against a lake. The par threes are also solid. Like the Murray Course the condition of the couch fairways and bentgrass greens on the Lake Course are usually excellent.
With perfect year-round weather for golf, the Murray River is a popular destination for Australian golfers and the Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort an ideal base for those wishing to stay several days and fill up on numerous rounds of golf.
