Rich River Oddessy

I’ve been on holidays up on the Murray and played at Rich River (Echuca-Moama) on Tuesday with my little brother.


I started off really well and shot a 51 on the front 9, but it all went pear-shaped from there! I shot a 60 on the back thanks to 4 penalty strokes at the 10th from two balls in the drink, which incidentally is nowhere near the tee. Dale ended up winning the 18 holes by 2 strokes. He shot a 55 on the front and 54 on the back. The course was in great nick — a fairly short first nine and a loooong back nine.

Plenty of challenging holes and only a couple of P3’s (3 in all!). The 16th ( a par 5 ) was one of the most interesting, as it is covered in bunkers on the fairway, with a water hazzard along the right! I nailed the hole from a 15ft chip on this hole which made my score respectable for the hole (a six I think).

Overall, I enjoyed the round, despite losing my game on the back nine.
