Known as ‘the thinking person’s course’, Clearwater is one of New Zealand’s most challenging golf courses, with risk and reward on every hole. Designed to be strategic, this is a course that demands caution and courage alike, with undulating fairways, curved holes, and water coming into play at several points on the card. Each hole seems to get better than the last, making it a must-play for savvy golfers. Bring your best game.

The front nine offers links-style open play, while the back nine is reminiscent of a Florida residential course featuring a number of memorable holes, including multiple thrilling water carries, tricky greens and ball-magnet bunkers, with the closing stretch described by players as “a champion finish”.

There’s a fresh challenge every day with changing conditions common at Clearwater. Tees and pins are placed appropriately for the day and we have different cards for the different wind directions. We also offer six tee choices for flexibility that ensures a gratifying experience every game.

The course is complemented by superb practice areas and a fleet of modern electric golf carts. We also operate a concierge cart that’s just a button press away, so you can have refreshments served to you during play.
