The Junee Golf Club has one of the Riverina’s most interesting and challenging 18 hole, 72 par golf courses.
Club selection is vitally important on most holes as there are a couple with out of bounds. Even though there are no bunkers, other hazards await the unwary golfer.
Holes range from the 519 metre par 5 third with a slight dog-leg left, to the short par 3 eighth from an elevated tee to a green below protected in front by a dry creek bed.
A course suited to both the average and longer hitters, although accuracy is needed by all golfers.
A great course for a social hit or a competition round.
