Poverty Bay Golf Club
The Poverty Bay Golf Club was instituted in April of 1893 and was the 5th golf club to be established in New Zealand and the second in the North Island
Strategic old pines, a mid-course lake complete with resident ducks, thickets of trees, with glimpses of the ocean out to Young Nick’s Head, make the course as scenic as well as a golfing treasure. 
 
Poverty Bay is one of few golf clubs close to a major city where making a tee booking any day of the week is seldom a problem. Club members will always make visitors and new members welcome and introduce them to the program of competitive events that take place, usually on Saturdays, during the season. 
The free draining sandy soils allow play in even very wet weather. Hours after torrential rain the course is good to go. The fairways have a sprinkler system, and have an undulating topography. Strategic areas of uncontrolled rough give the course its reputation as a links.

The greens are amongst the best in New Zealand – an accolade repeated by visitors time and again, including New Zealand professionals who gather here each year for the Poverty Bay Pro Am Tournament.
 
Although a provincial course in an isolated part of New Zealand, Poverty Bay is extremely highly-regarded and the venue of several national tournaments. 
We have a modern clubhouse, with locker rooms and showers, an upstairs lounge areas with full bar facilities and an outdoor deck area with extensive views overlooking the golf course.

There are men’s and women’s casual, but organised, scrambles and competitions during the week in which all members and visitors can become involved if they wish.
