Cobram/Barooga Golf Course is a magnificent 36 hole golf course situated along the Murray River in NSW, this is a beautiful part of Australia and this golf course is a perfect example of that at the time club was advertising that this course was a masterpiece, I agreed with that and decided to create a real masterpiece of thier course.
I contacted the club President at the time, Wayne Lucas, who was enthusiastic and extremely helpful when I told him what I wanted to do. Wayne sent me numerous photos and detailed information on the course and also offered me a complimentary game for two complete with a golf cart so I could experience the course for myself.
I travelled to Cobram and met Wayne who gave me a guided tour of some of the holes that might be of interest and a general look around. Afterwards we enjoyed an afternoon playing golf and taking in the magnificent scenery, I can’t remember if I won or lost the game but I was left with a lasting impression of a breathtaking golf course. Wayne’s infectious love for his course and his unfaltering hospitality helped me enourmousley and I just could what to start this painting. The painting was a major undertaking which was completed around 6 months later and with a huge excitement to get started on the artwork I hope does the course and Wayne proud.
This part of Australia is a must to visit, with plentiful water supplies that the Murray River allows and magnificent old gum trees it is the idea setting for a golf course or two and Cobram/Barooga is a magnificent example well worth the visit. For more information on this course visit
