Oreti Sands Links is the most southerly 18 hole golf course in the world. It offers golfers the true experience of a Scottish links course.

Our fairways, in places bordered by extreme rough, always have many meters of added run and give just the right balance of risk and reward to both par and bogey golfers.

The par 72 course features extra wide rolling fairways, huge greens and few bunkers. The ever-present breeze normally associated with seaside settings comes in from the west and gives a fair degree of difficulty to the most exposed fairways.
