RICH River Golf Club Resort is so much more than a golfer’s paradise.

Although it certainly is that.

Home to two magnificent 18-hole golf courses, Rich River also boasts three lawn bowling greens, three croquet courts and nine tennis courts.

So it’s hard to run out of things to do at Rich River.

The club also has 64 rooms available for accommodation and a bistro open seven days.

With a variety of options on the menu from breakfast through to dinner, Rich River offers great value dining along with discounted members specials.

As the weather cools off, hearty fare hits the menu as you step into the James Maiden Bistro.

Offering relaxed indoor or al fresco dining options along with spectacular golf course views, guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner from the modern menu (which includes daily specials).

And it is all complemented by a large range of premium Australian and New Zealand wines or local and imported beers.

The cafe is open daily from 8am and is perfect for a quick stop to refuel between a round of golf or lunch on the go. It offers a fresh selection of hot and cold meal options including burgers, healthy sandwiches, wraps, rolls, fruit salad and homemade cake and slices.

All the food at Rich River is proudly home (and hand) made. From the on-site butcher through to the beautiful cakes in the coffee shop, the food is always fresh and always delicious.

Employing 170 staff and attracting golfers from across the country, it’s no wonder the resort is such an important part of the twin towns.

Chief executive Shane Gloury said the Echuca-Moama community had a productive two-way relationship with Rich River.

“I believe we provide a lot of value to the community and the locals have been very supportive of us over the years,” he said.

“We love having out of town visitors but most of our members are locals.

“The club relies on the support of the community and we’re extremely thankful to have enjoyed it for so long.”

Mr Gloury said the evidence was clear that supporting local businesses had a flow-on effect to the wider community.

“If we all shop online and overseas it makes it hard for communities to look out for each other. I hope people take the opportunity to shop local whenever they can,” he said.

“Country communities are great at looking after each other and I think that’s what makes our towns such great places to live.”
