The photos show images of the construction of the club and the course, as well as a few shots from today to show the transformation of the venue over time.


Murray Downs Golf & Country Club is situated in the heart of Kidman Reid’s historic Murray Downs sheep station on the opposite side of the mighty Murray River at Swan Hill in Victoria. Construction of the Murray Course commenced in mid October 1988 and was formally opened in March 1991.

The Clubhouse construction was state of the art for its time and resulted in a venue with a fabulous view over the golf course and bowling greens.  The venue has plenty of natural light due to many floor to ceiling windows and has been refurbished to reflect a modern yet warm and friendly atmosphere.

A decision was made back in the late 80’s to construct a course that would attract golfers of all standards. Efforts made to build individual holes based on specific strategies for play as they separately apply to the long hitting professional, the average player and the beginner was a masterstroke.

Ted Parslow (Course Designer) has ensured that the most important ingredient for low scoring is playing to position. Fairway shaping, mounding, bunkers, tees, lakes, and green orientation have been carefully considered so as to maximise the reward for the golfer who plays to position. Today, over-adventurous shots are often severely penalised.

A wide range of trees and shrubs were planted at the Murray Downs Golf and Country Club. These were carefully chosen for their suitability in the area and located in groups so as to frame each hole, define preferred shot direction and to provide an ever changing vista to golfers as they proceed with their round.

Today, the Murray Downs Golf and Country Club is the Number 1 course on the Murray River.
