The Clearwater Golf Club course forms the centrepiece of the Clearwater Resort community.
The Clearwater Resort was conceived originally as part of the wider Waimakariri Regional Park connecting The Groynes, Coutts Island, Templars Island and McLeans Island.
Much of the land that now forms the wider Clearwater Resort was originally farmland purchased by Japanese interests in 1992.
Local investors including the late Diana, Lady Isaac, and golf course designer John Darby purchased the land, modified the concept and named the development Clearwater in 1998.
Construction of the residential resort and golf course commenced the same year.
The golf course was completed in time for the first of its many annual international professional golf tournaments in March 2002.
Currently the development is in its final stages of completion with most home sites sold and a range of apartments forming the nucleus of the hotel development.
The development has followed the conservative principles of the late Diana, Lady Isaac.
The Isaac Conservation Park now lies between Clearwater Resort and Coutts Island recreation park with the entire area linked by extensive spring-fed waterways complemented by walking and cycling tracks that provide recreation opportunities for everyone.
