Hutt Golf Club


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Hutt Golf Club Est. 1892

Where2Golf says: 

Hutt Golf Club: It is no surprise that this very good value golf course is busy most of the time - a chance for local and visiting golfers alike to sample a relatively inexpensive outing on a good quality parkland course. Mature firs, Norfolk pines and many other varieties create the pleasant parkland feel, while good bunkering also helps give excellent definition to each hole. The greens here are especially noteworthy - some of the quickest around and laiden with subtle slopes to mesmerise even the best readers of greens. Although the front nine is not without its tree-lined challenges, with some fairways feeling a tad too tight for comfort, its the back-nine that seems to have the stronger holes, with more undulation and a mix of both tree-lined and more open environments. The back-nine is also memorable for starting and finishing with a par-3, the 18th being one of the shortest closing holes in championship golf, measuring only 110 metres from the back tees. Looking beyond the course, you'll notice how Wellington's real estate is very adept at clinging to the sides of surrounding hills.
