Full details from the manager, Ben Atherton,  09 436 2246 
The Pines is an eighteen hole course with a par of 71 and a 'slope rating' of 116 (medium degree of difficulty). It is not a long course, measuring 5368 metres off the men's blue tees. It does however present players of all abilities with many interesting hole locations and challenges with its meandering stream, tidal ponds, seaside mangroves and tree-studded fairways. 
 
The front nine is set back from Parua Bay and includes the more undulating holes. The back nine is played on the flatter part of the course and at times you really are "at the water's edge", with the sea marking the boundary to the course.
 
Driving range situated between the 10th and 17th fairways.
Licensed bar open daily.
Club and cart hire both available.
