Black Bull is a purpose-built Thomson Perrett Championship Course on the banks of Lake Mulwala and caters for all golfing abilities. The large rolling Grand Prix couch fairways are only bettered by the first class G2 bent greens and natural surrounds that you will experience when playing at the Black Bull. Black Bull also has its own amen corner known as the “Bull Ring”. The first of the Bull Ring is Hole number 4, a 180m par-3 across water surrounded by bunkers both left and right. Hole 5 is a short par-4 with water all the way down the right side, with a fairway that sits on an angle ready to kick your ball towards the waiting landscape. Once you get past the tee shot, a difficult shot to a two- tiered green awaits. Finally, Hole 6 is rated number one on the card for a reason as this 400m par-4 has water down the right side and a narrow passage to feed the drive past to avoid the 4 fairway bunkers waiting to trap the ball. Once you negotiate the tee shot a long approach into another two-tiered green wrapped by water awaits. Hole 6 faces due West and you will more than likely be into a head wind, good luck! Overseeing the “Bull Ring” is a life-sized bull known affectionately as “Charlie” who loves to take a selfie with the travelling golfer. Black Bull’s reputation continues to grow with the well-known Accor’s Sebel luxury international hotel and serviced apartments joining forces with Silverwoods. The hotel will be sitting in a prime location within Silverwoods on the edge of Lake Mulwala known as The Point and will boast some of the best accommodation and food to be found along the river. The hotel will include a 300-seat conference facility, bar, bistro, gym, pool and other health amenities within the resort when due for proposed completion in 2018. Word is quickly spreading around town and to the wider regions that once the hotel is built, it will provide numerous opportunities for personal and commercial use – like holidays, mini-breaks, functions, conferences, events and a wonderful place to stay when playing golf at Black Bull. All of this making Silverwoods Golf and Lifestyle Resort – including their magical Black Bull golf course a true destination place to either live or visit. Spokesperson and ambassador for Black Bull and the Silverwoods development Mr Billy Brownless has said “I have not found a better place in Victoria to enjoy world- class golf, water sports and lifestyle than Yarrawonga.” So next time you are travelling along the Murray River be sure to add the Black Bull to the list as in a short time it has stamped itself as a must play when heading to Yarrawonga.
