Royal Wellington Golf Club is one of New Zealand’s premier golf clubs. Perched beside the Hutt River, the club has hosted 7 NZ Open Championships since 1912 and in 2004 it became the first golf club in the country to receive royal status.
Royal Wellington is noted as being among the finest parkland golf environments in Australasia. Rare native podocarp river plain forest is a backdrop to many of the holes. Its current par 72 18 hole championship course is a demanding test of golf for players of all levels.
Play the course, rich in history and an icon of New Zealand golf.
Par 72 27 holes with 18 new championship holes completed in 2013 Expected playing time 4.30 minutes Tee time interval is every 8 minutes 5 sets of tees Bent grass greens
From the fourth tee, this Par 5 fairway splits in two, either side of a stream. Over the stream, and past a strategically placed bunker, the fairway cambers towards a lake and narrows dramatically as it gets closer to the green. The sloping wide but narrow green sits behind the lake, nearly at right angles to the line of play, making hitting the green with a long approach a tricky proposition. This hole demonstrates how the new layout can be played by golfers of all levels.
