Berri Golf Club
Berri Golf Club is on the edge of the town, set amidst natural mallee trees with complementary native plantings. The fairways and greens are all fully irrigated. Excellent bar facilities, meals, gaming and golf carts are available seven days a week. The par 71, 6019m (par 73, 5284m for women) course is a challenge. The irrigation is fully controlled and much of the rough is also watered meaning play is almost always on grass. The greens are a mixture of bent, cobra and pennlink grasses giving an excellent surface. Most fairway are a blend of couch, Kentucky blue and fescue but in recent times some have been converted to santa anna which thrives in the conditions. A feature of the course is the opening hole. It is a par three of 161m from an elevated tee landscaped with roses and shrubs and plays up a slight rise to a green set among tall gums. The signature hole is the par four eighth. It is a gentle dog let where the approach shot must avoid bunkders on both sides of the green. The eighteenth is played from a two tiered tee adjacent to the Big River Motor Inn and is also played under the watchful eye of those enjoying the facilities of the Big River Tavern at the clubhouse.
