Just had a long mid weekend at the Howlong Country Golf Club. The family room whilst oversize for us would be excellent value for that group or family. I know the rooms are being upgraded as part of the Club's bigger picture and for the moment I would have to say it is great value for money. Cleaned every day, flat screen TV with John and Margaret the hosts going out of their way to assist with anything they could. I do not profess to be a golfer, more a crazy person with expensive sticks but hey I enjoy it and I can tell you the course and ground are looking excellent at the moment. The Golf Pro Travis and his team are extremely helpful and gave me a few tips that I noticed immediate improvement in my swing. Eating was sensational at the Chinese with an all you can eat buffet (Wednesday and Saturday) which included soup, fresh prawns, mussels and constant fresh made dishes (about 16 to choose from if I remember), desert, great bar prices served by genuine friendly staff (Thanks Ellen, Karen and the others who I forgot your names). Had Australian meals the next night as there is an excellent bistro with great food on offer if you do not like Chinese. Also went to the Court House Hotel in the main street and found "The Kitchen" restaurant. Melbourne and Sydney prices for food but you will not find better outside of those cities. You will need a car to get around as there is no public transport but hey it's a country town and if you like a walk then it's perfect. The Howlong Bakery also has those great sweet tasty treats that I like but Wifey wont let me have even though I said I could walk it of along the Murray River which is spectacular and is a must to visit with the best views from Lions Park. Did the Wineries in the area which are just over the Murray River in Victoria. Morris Winery great reds and home of the Durif, Tokay and Muscat, St Leonards, All Saints with great Cheese Shop stocking fantastic cheeses, The Wicked Virgin with fantastic Olives, Oils and Tapenades. There are over 20 Wineries that I saw but could not visit but hey next trip I'll just tick some more of the list
