The lush greens of Albury’s Commercial Golf Resort are a pleasing sight for any golfer. Featuring tree lined fairways and well placed bunkers, the course has a few testing holes to challenge even an experienced golfer. Beware of the burrow on the 6th and 18th hole.
The golf course at Thurgoona’s Country Club Resort will test golfers of all abilities. Designed by Peter Thomson and Mike Wolveridge, the course offers beautifully covered couch fairways, large bent grass greens with subtle slopes, and strategically placed bunkers. Beware of the 16th hole – the challenging par 3 includes an attempt at the tee over water.
And not to be outdone, Wodonga’s Golf Course should be on any keen golfers radar. Located on the edge of Wodonga, the picturesque course has a settling stillness to it. Lining the fairways, the native trees are important to the course design, as is Felltimber Creek that snakes its way through the course. Though not for the faint-hearted, the course is over 6km in length.
Not interested in walking the fairways? Albury’s SS&A Club lets you tee off from courses around the world by using cutting-edge sensor and virtual technology. Or you could try Drummond Golf’s Big Swing Simulator for something a little out of the ordinary.
You’ll find we do hospitality right! If you’re looking for a loud and lively venue with live music, find your tribe to the SS&A Club, or if it’s cosy and intimate you’re after, try Temperance and General, for something off the beaten track with a quirky and welcoming vibe, you can’t beat IIFingers Whisky Bar. Seek out The Bended Elbow in Dean Street, a great pub with three distinct bar areas over two levels.
The most Important Meal of the Day
We understand walking the greens and standing all day can be tiring, so you’ll need to fuel up before starting for the day. There are great cafes serving up breakfast close to the venue, like Early Bird Cafe (not open Wednesdays) and Canvas eatery, just a short walk across from the Albury Entertainment Centre through QEII Square. If you’re starting your day in Wodonga, get down to Beanstation for the perfect brekky.
Just looking to source your daily caffeine? No problem, we’ll show you how to coffee like a local.
Explore the Region
Albury Wodonga is the perfect base to explore our nearby wine region, the high country or one of the many charming country towns. Organise a day tour and explore the many well-known wineries in nearby Rutherglen or take a scenic drive to Corowa Whisky and Chocolate, take a tasting tour or make your own giant chocolate freckle.
Take a historic drive to the town of Beechworth and wander the picturesque streets to find Beechworth Honey, Old Beechworth Goal and a host of heritage and foodie destinations.
Meander north to the village of Holbrook to check out the giant submarine. On your way back, stop at Jindera Pioneer Museum, built around an existing 1847 general store, homes, grounds and machinery sheds.
