Southland Golf Club (Oreti Sands Links) Description

Still maturing as a golf course this is a fantastic course to test your skills.

On a windy day the first two holes are enough to make you think you are on a British links course. With four tee options there is a course for everyone.

This course has been re-developed by TMGD (Greg Turner & Scott Macpherson) and the new layout was opened early March 2009. The green fees do not reflect the quality of this course.

Former top NZ Professional golfer, Greg Turner (now into golf course design) and his associate Scott Macpherson secured funding in 2006 to develop the course and work commenced on altering the layout in January 2007. Four spectacular new holes have been added, four have been removed and several others modified.

The new layout was officially opened for club members on 7th March 2009. On Monday 9th an exhibition match was played between Peter Senior & Peter O’Malley versus Peter Fowler & Mahal Pearce.

Greg Turner believes this course has the potential to be amongst the finest Links in the Southern Hemisphere.

Southland Golf Club (Oreti Sands) is the Southern-most 18 hole links in the world, situated 10 kms south-west of Invercargill, the most southerly city in New Zealand. The course features a links layout with large greens on a sandy base that will challenge even the most experienced player.
