16 INSIDE GOLF TRAVEL | December 2015 Quick flights: two of the Murray’s hidden geMs, only an hour away! Arecent report by the Australian Golf Industry council revealed that the Murray river region is the most frequently visited golf destination by the core golf tourist in Australia. And for good reason, with spectacular weather, picturesque surroundings and some truly memorable golf, the area has something for players of all levels. At the top end of the Murray is mighty Mildura. While it may seem a world away from the major cities, Mildura is, in truth a short one-hour flight from Melbourne. the airport has benefitted from a recent multi-million-dollar upgrade, thus making the journey a quick and comfortable endeavour for the golf traveller from Melbourne, Sydney or Adelaide. Indeed, following a quick morning flight, golfers will have plenty of time to get to any one of Mildura’s fantastic golf courses for lunch and a warm-up before tee-off. A feature course just over the border from Mildura is the Coomealla Memorial Sporting Club, overlooking a magnificent stretch of the Murray river in the township of Dareton, nSW. If you’ve never visited coomealla, be prepared to be surprised. the course is a massive hit with golfers “in the know” from Adelaide, and we can see why, as coomealla is as good as any course in the region. nestled on the banks of the Murray, the fabulous golf course provides a test for any golfer. the greens are true, large and welcoming, while the tranquillity of the course is unmatched. If your driver is misbehaving, you can easily hit iron off the tee in most cases and still have reasonable chances for pars or birdies. there are also a variety of risk/reward options which will truly reward the big, accurate drives. All told, coomealla is a cracker of a course, and we Thurgoona Country Club Resort THE LANDMARK NELSON BAY Reservations: (02) 4984 4633 | Freecall: 1800 200 755 | Group Consultant: (02) 4984 8963 | Fax: (02) 4984 4677 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org | Groups Email: email@example.com Traditional Golf Package 2 x Nights Accommodation 1 x Round of Golf at Nelson Bay From: Twin Share - $230 per person Quad Share - $180 per person Championship Golf Package 2 x Nights Accommodation 1 x Round of Golf at Nelson Bay 1 x Round of Golf at Pacific Dunes From: Twin Share - $340 per person Quad Share - $305 per person Packages are subject to availability at time of booking and exclude all long weekends, public holidays and Xmas school holidays.
