LIV Golf pitstop: our golfers paradise, on your way to Adelaide

If you’re heading to LIV Golf, then schedule a pitstop off the freeway to stretch your legs with our incredible string of golf courses (including a widely renowned, 18-hole championship course in the heart of Murray Bridge).

Murray Bridge Golf Course

Less than an hour from Adelaide, the Murray Bridge Golf Club is a championship course that regularly hosts the SA PGA pre-tournament warm-up events. However, the beauty of this perfectly manicured course, is that you don’t need to know a member to get a game.

The combination of country hospitality matched with a friendly, supportive playing environment is half the reason why travellers (of all skill levels) love to play here. The other reason is the facility itself – with its all-year round lush fairways, greens and challenging holes, plus the pro shop and large clubhouse overlooking the picturesque space.

Before you tee off

The club’s onsite Pro Shop is the only one of its kind in the area and provides all the equipment and apparel you might need. Even if you’re unsure on what you might be looking for – there’s a pro onsite to provide you with tips and information on products, as well as one-on-one coaching for beginners, juniors and ladies.

You’ll also find a putting green just outside of the Clubhouse, and practice nets so you can enjoy some pre-game preparation (or post-match practice).

Par-fect scenes await on the course

The Murray Bridge Golf Club prides itself on its well-presented course. Here, you can expect sloping, mixed grass fairways, neat rows of trees and plenty of water (and sand) hazards. If you don’t feel like wheeling out the golf buggy, hire a ride-on electric cart instead to get around the 5km stretch.

Have a round on and off the greens

The clubhouse will be your go-to for refreshments after you’ve finished up a game. With large windows spanning the building, you can drink in the sensational views of the course while enjoying a cold one from the bar.

Plus, if finishing off the day with a red wine is part of your golfing tradition, you’ll be treated to some sensational drops from the locally sourced Langhorne Creek Wine Region. So, while you’re ordering some dinner from the restaurant’s menu (open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday), add a glass of Bleasdale or Lake Breeze wine into the mix for the perfect end to a day on the greens.

Tip: If you like those iconic drops, then you can’t go past exploring more of our local Langhorne Creek Wine Region. Kimbolton Wines and Bremerton Wines are two of our favourites, and have perfect spaces to stop, taste and enjoy the local flavours.

Stay and play

We have a gold mine of golf courses to explore in our backyard, so extend your stay and test out our favourites, including:

We recommend booking a stay with River Shack Rentals, who offer beautiful holiday homes along the Murray River (from Morgan to Wellington).

If you’re looking for some more experiences to add to your getaway, there’s a mammoth range of bucket list-worthy activities on offer. With the River Murray International Dark Sky Reserve on our doorstep, take the rare opportunity to stargaze the Milky Way with Juggle House Experiences.

Otherwise, what about an up-close wild animal encounter at Monarto Safari Park? Or a 280km/h fast lap at Shell V-Power Motorsport Park?

If you’re after some river relaxation, try a leisurely nature tour of Mannum with Four Knots Murray River Cruises, or even a jet ski or kayaking tour in Murray Bridge with Freedom Boat Hire.

For nature lovers, get out and explore the Coorong National Park with Spirit of the Coorong on a range of their nature-based adventure tours.
