Kaikoura Golf Club

The Kaikoura Golf Course is nestled between the magnificent vista of the Seaward Kaikoura Mountains and the ocean waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Located within five minutes drive of the Kaikoura township on State Highway 1 this wonderful 18 hole golf course offers something for every golfer, from beginner to the low handicapper.

Facilities include club and trundler hire and there are also several golf carts available. The clubhouse is open daily 9am to 5pm and offers food and refreshments as well as a licensed bar.

A round of golf, while you take in the spectacular views and walk the irrigated fairways of the Kaikoura Golf Course is the ultimate way to wind down after an exciting day of marine mammal adventures. 

The Kaikoura Golf Course is an 18 hole course of some 5352 metres (5853 yards) set in front of one of the most spectacular mountain backdrops one could wish to see.

Established in April 1911 as a 9 hole course the Kaikoura Golf Club has undergone many changes that have taken place since the first course was established early in the 20th Century.

Although the course is short in comparison to many modern day designs, don’t let this mislead you into thinking it is easy. Looks can be deceiving and even the most proficient golfer will enjoy the challenges on our links course.

The irrigated fairways at face value are generously wide in most cases, but the nature of the greens, small and strategically shaped, means approach shots must be precise to ensure against getting into trouble. Once on the green you will find reading the surface contours is not easy and often the break will be other than what you perceived.

 The course is well maintained by fulltime green keeping staff and features watered greens and fairways.

A range of clubs including left handed clubs are available for hire and there are also trundlers and several golf carts available for hire.

The clubhouse has bar facilities and light refreshments are available daily. Full catering can be arranged for visiting groups or clubs.

Although there are no coaching facilities a practice fairway is available for those wishing to refine their game.
