Golfing in Wanganui Posted November 30, 2013


Venues:  Three courses within 15 minutes drive from Cooks Gardens Motor Lodge

The Wanganui Golf Club’s Belmont Links have nearly 120 years of History, and is highly ranked in New Zealand.  It presents a real challenge for players of all abilities, and is enjoyed by all who play it, because of that challenge.
Established in 1925, the Castlecliff Golf Course is a well-groomed, par 72 Links course with a free draining sand base. The course provides an excellent challenge to all playing abilities and is now one of the longer courses in the district off the back tees. Good firm playing conditions all year round. Well defined, with flat to gently undulating fairways, easy walking. Greens are excellent and guarded by bunkers. Great sea views from around the course.
Tawhero Golf Complex is a nine hole public Wanganui golf course set in the heart of the city.  Sporting the only driving range in Wanganui, they also cater for those wanting to practice on a chipping and putting green, as well as a full game of golf for the pro enthusiasts or casuals.
