Greg Dowling reveals seven unique experiences in different parts of the country What are Australia’s best-kept golfing secrets or challenges? Destinations G olfers taking aim on the fifth hole of the Murray Course at Yar rawonga need to avoid inland Australia’s grandest water hazard. Anything wide of the river gums standing tall in the left rough dives head- first into a fast-flowing reach of the Murray River. This signature par-five of 470 metres has a fairway centreline with a natural hogsback most of the way to the elevated green. Also worth trying from this tee is to attempt the carr y of about 215 metres across the river. Big-time bragging rights are on offer here, with the claim being that you hit a golf ball from NSW to Victor ia. The North Course at Sandhurst Club in Melbourne features a unique fortification to defend one of its magnificent greens. A striking example of the fortress concept is The Wall hole, the first of four par- threes. It transports golfers back in time to Scotland (especially St Andrews, the home of golf). where many holes became famous because a stone wall bordered the edge of a green. 14 June / July 2012
