Christchurch GCChristchurch GC- hole 14 

Christchurch Golf Club dates back to 1873, making it the second oldest club in New Zealand. 

The club started at a site at Hagley Park, but moved to the current site in 1900.

In 1972 Sloan Morpeth made changes, improving the routing of the course and then in the 1990's Thomson & Wolveridge removed trees to give the course a much more open 'playing fields' look.

More recently Brett Thomson is the local consultant overseeing the recovery from the earthquake damage, and course improvement.

Christchurch GC  is regarded by many as the premier course in the area, and has hosted the NZ Open 11 times, as well as the 1990 World Amateur Championship




The course travels over rolling terrrain on both sides of Lake Terrace Road. It displays parkland like traits but without as many trees as most parkland courses!

It is well bunkered, and the green complexes demand your attention

The course will favour the thinking golfer


Notable holes include:


hole 2- the short par 4 second hole requires decisions to be made on the tee, and accurate approaches

hole 8 - is another quality short par 4- and tricky!
