Kaikoura is one of New Zealand’s most visited locations. Our attractive links course is open daily for play all year round, offering golf at a leisurely country pace without the pressure of busy city courses.

Situated 5 minutes south of the township, the Kaikoura Golf Club is an 18 hole course of some 5352 metres (5853 yards) set in front of one of the most spectacular mountain backdrops one could wish to see.

Established in April 1911 as a 9 hole course the Club has undergone many changes over more than a century.

Although short in comparison to many modern designs, don’t let this mislead you into thinking the course is easy. Looks can be deceiving and even the most proficient golfer will enjoy the challenges.

The irrigated fairways, at face value, are generously wide in most cases, but the nature of the greens, small and strategically shaped, means approach shots must be precise to ensure against getting into trouble. Once on the green you will find reading the surface contours is not easy and often the break will be other than what you perceived.
