The Tauranga Golf Course has an area of approximately 45 hectares, and is a Par 71 measuring 5617m from the back tees with a NZCR of 68.90 and a Slope of 117. Home of the Charles Tour - Carrus Open, held in September each year.
Located on the Racecourse Reserve in Greerton, Tauranga Golf Course offers a secluded and peaceful setting for golfers of all ages and ability.
 
The present course with its beautiful trees and hundreds of flowering shrubs is a lasting tribute to the untiring efforts of the original club members and in particular Mr A J Mirrielees who was Club President in the depression years of the 1930’s. Mirrielees used the Government Work Scheme of the time to plant out the 30,000 trees and shrubs, many of which are still in evidence today.
 
A number of Club members have represented New Zealand including the late Una Wickham, Mike Nicholson, Jay Carter, and more recently Eddie Burgess, Kevin Smith and Jared Pender. Eddie also won the NZ Amateur title in year 2000 and both Eddie and Jared have represented New Zealand at the Eisenhower Trophy.
 
Considered short by some players and strenuous by others because of the hilly terrain, the Tauranga course has earned the respect of top amateurs and professionals alike as an exacting test of shot placement and concentration. The course has interesting topography and variation in holes (it has been described as two courses in one) and its fairways and sand based greens are in beautiful condition as a result of permanent irrigation systems.
