Champions of the Murray

Each year, Golf On The Murray partner clubs hold a Qualifying Event where members pay $5pp to compete in a 4BBB Stableford. Winners and runners-up from the ladies and men's competition go on to represent their club in the Champions of the Murray final!

As a successful finalist, each pair will win a weekend golf package to compete in the finals where they will challenge the other Golf on the Murray Clubs to be crowned the Champions of the Murray.

This complimentary weekend package includes:

  • Golf polo shirt
  • 2 nights accommodation (excluding home club finalists)
  • Breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning
  • 18 holes of golf on Saturday in the Champions of the Murray Final
  • Cart hire
  • Presentation Dinner with pre-dinner canapés and two-course meal.

If you would like the chance to be a part of this member’s event next year, be sure to enter the qualifying events at any of our Golf on the Murray Clubs.

Event Testimonials 

"Thanks for a great weekend, great concept. Great weather, great company, great course and great fun ( shame about my golf ability on the day, but the day was still fab). Much appreciated... a lot of work from a few people. Cheers, Sue Davis (Murray Downs)."

"We are now safely home after a lovely weekend at Rich River. Not only did we get to enjoy the impressive accommodation and meals, Colin was lucky enough to take home some of the prizes. He is telling his mates about it all now. I can imagine their envy! Thanks again to all the organisers and we look forward to hearing about Yarrawonga next year. Kind regards, Colin and Jennifer McNamara."

"The itinerary was well-organised, professional and well communicated. It was great to meet the other finalists and the Presentation Dinner was very special. Congratulations to our Club for being part of such a successful marketing initiative, with the Murray being the top golfing destination in Australia. Yours sincerely, Karin McKenzie (Yarrawonga)."

 

Finals - Saturday 25th May 2019

The Champions of the Murray 2019 Final was held on Saturday 25th May at the Cobram Barooga Golf Club. Proudly sponsored by Aristocrat, 48 finalists from the qualifying Partner Clubs were keen to play their best to take out this year’s title!

Our golfers were welcomed by the Golf on the Murray Committee at a delicious breakfast with each player receiving a GOTM Goodie Bag including a sleeve of Srixon golf balls.

While it was a cloudy start to the day, it wasn't long before the sun came out and our players were keen to hit off as the 4BBB Stableford event on the Old Course began!

The evening festivities began with a cocktail party and canapés from 6:30pm. Our golfers had the chance to mingle and discuss their golf technique (or tales of woe) for the day – although everyone was asked to keep their scores a secret!

Delicious main meals were served, followed by official presentations. The Chairman, Greg Roberts, highlighted the achievements of Golf on the Murray and the importance of working together to promote our region. He pointed out that the Murray is currently the No.1 destination in Australia for Golf Tourism, before announcing the winners for the day.
