The owners of the Cobram Barooga Golf Club, Sporties Barooga, are relocating the 3rd green on their Old Course.
This project has come about due to the owners decision to move the pro-shop and golf operations from the current clubhouse, to the Sporties Club located adjacent to the 3rd green. The Sporties Club has excellent hospitality offerings and more convenient car parking for its members.
As a result the holes on the Old Course will be renumbered, with the 4th hole becoming the new 1st and the 3rd hole becoming the new 18th. The current 3rd green will become the new practice green.
The new green will be moved approximately 60 metres onto a natural low rise short of the current green. The works include a new fairway bunker to add interest to the tee shot on what will become a 330 metre par 4. The adjacent 6th tees will also be rebuilt and moved approximately 20 metres away from the new green.
