A man with three young children in his car has been charged after allegedly speeding at almost 200km/h before driving through a golf course in an attempt to escape police in the NSW Riverina region.

Police say the vehicle was detected travelling on the Olympic Highway towards Uranquinty on Monday afternoon doing 193km/h in a 100km/h zone.

It's alleged the driver then sped onto Wagga City Golf Club and drove down a fairway when officers tried to stop the car.

"The driver allegedly smashed through a fence, travelled down a fairway and through several other fences before the vehicle stopped," a police spokesperson said on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old driver and three children - aged 12, 9 and 8 - then ran into a shed.

The man was arrested and charged with 14 offences, including reckless driving and using an unregistered and uninsured vehicle on the road.

The Hebersham man was refused bail to appear at Wagga Wagga Local Court on Tuesday.

The three uninjured children are now with their mother.
