Ladies: 285 metres Index:12
Tight dogleg right with out of Bounds on the right restricting any attempt at a short cut off the tee so play for position on the left side of the fairway leaving yourself 100m in. The green is long and narrow sloping away both sides with undulating mounds close causing issues trying to get up and down.
Par 4 Mens: 361metres Index:4
Ladies: 312 metres Index:6
A dogleg right with large Pines protecting the right side. A tee shot down the left side to the 150m is about the best you can expect. The green is sloping from back to front with out of bounds closer than it looks on the left side with a severe drop off behind the green if you are long. Try to leave yourself below the hole.
Mens: 247 metres Index:16:
Ladies: 232 metres Index:14
A short dogleg left with out of bounds in the speedway requires an accurate long iron to the centre of the fairway avoiding the grass mound. This leaves you a short wedge to the green but any shot lost to the right will fall away down the valley of sin creating a tough up and down for par.
Par 4 Mens: 390 metres Index:2
Par 5 Ladies:380 metres Index: 4
One of the toughest driving tests you will encounter on the day. Keep it on the fairway with a tee shot from right to left if you want to avoid a big number. This will see most players second shots coming from outside the 150m to a long raised green sloping from back to front. Short in front is a good miss.
Par 4 Mens: 340 metres Index:6
Ladies: 326 metres Index: 8
A straight tee shot between the goal posts so to speak is required to leave you with a short iron to a green protected front right by a well-used grass bunker that creates the illusion of a false front. An uphill putt is recommended as any putt coming from above the hole can build speed quickly.
Par 4 Mens: 300 metres Index: 8
Ladies: 300 metres Index: 8
A dogleg left to an uphill green. The tee shot needs to be on the left side as the right side will be cut out of an easy shot to the green with a tree overhanging that side. From the bottom of the hill it’s just under 100m to the centre of the green protected front right by the only bunker take an extra club as most come up short.
Par 4 Mens: 335 metres Index: 5
Ladies: 323 metres Index: 9
A dogleg right from an elevated tee you need to be position on the left side of the fairway to have a clear shot to the green due to large trees on the right restricting any second shot from too far back. The green is long and guarded by large pine on the front right so the centre of the green is an easy 2 putt par.
Par 4 Mens: 317 metres Index:11
Ladies: 295 metres Index:13
A straight hole with an elevated tee that increases the demand for a straight one due to trees lining both sides of the fairway. The right half allows for easy access to a green that slopes back to front with a steep drop off behind and water on the left.
Par 4 Mens: 340 metres Index: 9
Ladies: 321 metres Index:5
Plays as a slight dog leg with a large tree on the left and a deep drain punishes and tee shot lost to the right, the green is picturesque against the hills behind but this plays on your depth perception for your second shot. The green is protected by a grass mound short right and a steep drop off directly behind the green giving you a tough up and down challenge.
Par 4 Mens: 400 metres Index:1
Ladies: 323 metres Index: 3
Playing from a slightly elevated tee with water hazard on the left being a picturesque trout stream. This tee shot must find the fairway with the left side rewarding the brave with a shorter line to the large green, the second shot is always better left below the hole as it can be quick from above the hole.
Par 5 Mens: 447 metres Index:7
Ladies: 393 metres Index:7
A classic risk reward hole with out of bounds left side for the entire length and trees guarding the bailout right side, with a good drive down the center puts you in reaching distance of the green or at least set up for a short third. The green is split into a lower and upper tier that can create some tough putts above the hole coming back down.
Par 4 Mens: 392 metres Index:3
Ladies: 330 metres Index:1
Uphill and out of bounds on the left side that has ruined many good scores. Even with a good tee shot most players will still be well outside the 150m markers for their second. This green is quick with drop offs creating tough short game challenges from all sides. Below the hole when the greens are fast is recommended.

About Our Golf Club
Myrtleford boasts an 18 hole grass green course with fairways lined with trees and some of River Red gums are reputed to be 300 years old. It is a challenging course with accuracy on the narrow fairways and small greens being at a premium.
Most of the fairways are flat with only the 9th and 18th being on a hill. One aspect often commented on by visitors is the fact that on nearly every fairway the flight of the ball can be easily followed because of the background of hills surrounding the course.
Our clubhouse is available for function hire, with a well equipped kitchen and well stocked bar. Corporate bookings for golf days or functions are welcome. Motorised carts are available for hire along with a range of hire clubs.
Being a volunteer run club we prefer that bookings be made prior to your event.
