Clearwater Golf Club

With a mix of links and parkland styles this course showcases both natural spring-fed lakes and a background of the Southern Alps

Clearwater GC

The Clearwater Golf Course has proven itself as a venue for the professional golfer for many years (web.com, Austa. Men's Tour, Euro Ladies Tour) having previously hosted Jason Dufner, Bubba Watson, Jason Day and Kiwi standout Lydia Ko. In fact, Ms. Ko posted a course record low of 61 whilst ranked as the World Number 1 female player in Feb. 2016.

Complete with spring-fed lakes visitors will be reminded of similar link-style rounds from Florida. However the openness of the layout lends players a view of the Southern Alps in the background.

Located just north of Christchurch, this course is a modern layout and designed by Kiwi golfing legend Bob Charles and developer John Darby (Jack's Point, The Hills, Omaha Beach).

Signature Holes:

Considered one of the toughest challenges in the country from the tips, golfers may expect to encounter water throughout Clearwater GC.

4th: This 170 yard par-3 is set amongst the wetlands and has two bunkers that protect the green to the right and from the front. It's truly a Jekyl and Hyde hole, as it will play extremely difficult if the wind is blowing.

18th: This par-4 finishing hole has water on three sides and is one of the more difficult way to finish a round.
