American golf course designer Matt Dye designed the championship-standard 18-hole Carrington Golf Course. It encompasses a variety of terrains from rolling vales to challenging water holes. The Black Angus herd of Carrington Farms grazes on gently rolling pasture lands to the east and west of the golf course.
The course is designed to accommodate golfers of all abilities and offers a great variety of hole play, from one of the longest par 5's in New Zealand, 569 metres (599 yards), to one of the shortest par 3's at 113 metres (132 yards) over water.
The unique 100-acre seaside layout meanders around the central resort complex of Carrington Resort, featuring Lodge Rooms, Three Bedroom Villas and Luxury Houses.
