Our course is regarded as Manawatu's premiere 18 hole layout, and provides a challenging yet fair test for golfers of all abilities. Tree-lined, beautifully manicured fairways, fast rolling greens and over 50 challenging white sand bunkers feature throughout the park like course.

Situated in Palmerston North's suburb of Hokowhitu the Club sits between the Manawatu River and the city's Centennial Lagoon. Visitors and casual golfers are always welcome. Please note, we do have a dress code on the course and in the clubhouse.

Home to the Hokowhitu Cafe and Bar, the Club is open to the public Tuesday-Sunday and offers visitors the chance to enjoy exceptional food in stunning surroundings.

We'd love to see you so come and visit us soon!
