There is an abundance of wonderful golf courses in the garden city. We are blessed to have three international golf resorts and numerous parklands courses. The city has hosted numerous New Zealand Opens (both men and women), PGA championships and a multitude of amateur events.
The most recognised amateur event was the 1990 Eisenhower Trophy. New Zealand finished in a tie for second with the strong USA team that included new comers Phil Mickleson and David Duval.
After the devastating 2011 earthquakes, a lot of our loved courses were reshaped. The destruction altered the landscape, large areas of liquefaction formed and damage caused to many club houses. The relentless passion from club members, management and greens staff brought to life a new era of golf in Christchurch. We can proudly say we have some of the best golf courses in the world. If you plan a visit to Christchurch do book into these great courses for an experience you won’t forget.
And of course, once you have played, do drop into X-Golf Avonhead.
