About

Our number 11 signature hole, The Glen, was selected by Gene Sarazen, as one of his best 18 holes in the world. In 1966 Arnold Palmer drove the green, a 370 metres distance, then two-putted to halve with Bob Charles. Gary Player had hole in one on the par 4 283 metre Ridge hole during the New Zealand Open. Bobby Locke won the New Zealand Open here 1938 and Peter Thomson won in 1953 and 1971.

Enjoy our large, comfortable clubhouse with panoramic views, a quality bar and cafeteria/restaurant facilities and view our historic memorabilia.
