Where2Golf says: 

North Otago Golf Club: A blind drive and four short par-4's gets you started on this very pleasant, parkland layout, which later will enthral you with its coastal and Pacific Ocean views. The undulating layout, hilly at times, flatter at others, will give your legs a good stretch, starting at the uphill par-4 3rd. Most holes here are relatively open, especially the 13th to 16th beside the Ocean, although a liberal scattering of large mature pines and more recent plantings does create something of a tree-lined feel on many holes. Hitting the small, firm greens is one thing, staying on them is quite another, given the slopes and run-offs that are usually present. Playing from just off the greens will often require digging your ball out of quite difficult grassy rough - so you'll need careful approach work to follow up those straight tee shots. If the game is not going to plan, just stand back and take in the lovely ocean and countryside views, and tune-in to the chatter and twitter of the many finches and other small birds residing in those tall fairway-hugging pines.
