Although a relatively short Par 72 at just under 5900 metres, Berrigan is a neat and well kept layout.
The small to medium sized front-sloping greens are a challenge for even the best putters. Covered in bent grass, they can become quite fast.
Tee boxes are raised and clearly defined throughout the course, while the fairways are reasonably wide and nicely covered in kikuyu grass.
There are seven bunkers on the course, so not a lot of sand to worry about. Only four holes having greenside bunkers.
- The 1st: A long par four to begin, and one of the toughest holes on the course.
- The 6th: A straightish par four with two short trees about 230 metres from the tee protecting the left side of the fairway. Two bunkers guarding the green.
- The 13th: Slightly uphill par three with a couple of bunkers guarding the green.
- The 15th: 500m slightly uphill par five with Out Of Bounds far left of short pine trees with a small pond on the right 240-260m off the tee to a bunkerless green.
- The 16th: A dogleg right with OOB on the left with 2 storage ponds near the tee and another pond 60-70m out from the green across the fairway to avoid.
The club also has two bowling greens.
Berrigan is a charming township of about 1000 residents halfway between Albury and Echuca, about 30 km north of Barooga.
Social golfers and visitors are always welcome at Berrigan Golf & Bowling Club. If the club is unattended, there is an honesty box for your green fees.
