Chisholm Park Golf Club

Simply one of the better and most overlooked links-style courses you will find in the country- complete with cliff-top views and wonderful opportunities to play the elements off of the sea

Dunedin has been called the “Edinburgh of the South”, and thus it is fitting that the city have at least one Scottish-style links course. Developed on reserve land during the 1930's depression years Chisholm Park is in fact the only true links course in Dunedin.

Many golfers consider it second only to Paraparmumu (north of Wellington), establishing the course as an institution within the golfing world.

Complete with ocean views and measuring 6300yds this track is short by today's standards. However it presents a true test and demands players strike the ball cleanly- few get the better of it on their initial round.

Play Info and Signature Holes

9th: Par-4, the "Lawyer's Head" hole is one of the most difficult, with a green rimmed by clifftops.

Highlights Of The Trip: Getting off the plane in Queenstown – overwhelmed with the beauty. The boat ride in Queenstown to experience the expansiveness.

The drive from Queenstown to Franz Joseph - the mountains and glacier lakes that went on forever. Our lunch spot that day at a campsite on a lake. Abel Tasman: this is where I want to return and spend a week to hike the entire trail. Spent the day biking in Napier to wineries.
