If you want to play golf in South Australia you’ve got to play and stay in the great Riverland. It boasts five magnificent golf courses including Berri, Renmark, Barmera, Loxton and Waikerie.
A popular tourist destination for the people of Adelaide as well as golfers touring the Murray playing the great game of golf, the 18 Hole “Berri Golf Course” is a favourite in the Riverland with beautifully presented grass greens.
The Riverland’s climate is perfect for golfers and visitors to the region, and both the Renmark and Berri community owned golf resort style venues have their own bistro restaurant and accommodation facilities on-course.
The men’s par 71 and ladies par 73 Berri golf course is forgiving for the less experienced, yet challenging for committed golfers wanting to test their skills.
The par three opening hole is one of many highlights at this Riverland golf course. An elevated tee landscaped with roses and native shrubs plays up a slight rise to a magnificent green that’s set among flowering tall gums.
Around the course you’ll discover that the fairways and greens at Berri are fully irrigated making for a very pleasant golfing experience. The par four eighth signature hole is challenging. In this instance you’ll be required to avoid bunkers on both sides of the dance floor as you make your approach shot.
The surfaces of the greens are excellent due to mixture of Bent, Cobra and Pennlink grasses and the fairways are mostly Santa Anna and Kikuyu that thrive in the SA Riverland and other golf courses dotted along the Murray River.
An easy walking layout makes for a very enjoyable game with small hills, bumps and bunkers breaking the picturesque landscape. Established flowering gums, natives and Mallee trees line all fairways from the 1st to the 18th.
At the final hole you’ll find a two-tiered tee adjacent to the superb on-course accommodation at Big River Motor Inn. Here you’ll play under the watchful eye of guests staying on-course and those enjoying the Tavern.
And, if you didn’t pack your golf clubs don’t worry!
Hire facilities at the Berri Golf Club’s Pro Shop include clubs, buggies and motorised carts with two practice fairways and a practice putting green.
