Christchurch Golf Club has the distinction of being the second oldest course in New Zealand (behind Otago Golf Club), and the sixth oldest outside the United Kingdom. It also came in as the 15th best layout in New Zealand Golf Digest’s inaugural ranking of our Top 50 Courses earlier this year.
The latest round of course enhancements was completed by the late, great Australian golf legend Peter Thomson, winner of five Open Championships. Known for its undulating fairways and superb presentation, Christchurch has held numerous New Zealand Opens and played host to the 1990 Eisenhower Trophy. A brand new clubhouse opened in February 2016, taking the off-course facilities to a new level.
