Chisholm Links Golf Course

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1930

Chisholm Links Golf Course is a well-regarded 18-hole championship links course, located just five minutes from the heart of the city of Dunedin. The layout offers several attractive holes and features, as well as fabulous views over the Pacific Ocean, onto neighbouring beaches and the local region.

Although not overly long, the undulating terrain and coastal climate will ensure most facets of your game are fully tested ... not least when the wind is blowing. Worth visiting if you are in the area.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: Chisholm's short and very scenic par-4 9th (Lawyers Head), with the Pacific Ocean hugging the hole on the leftside, plays along the cliffs to a dune surrounded green.
List of courses: NZ - South Island

Originally known as Ocean Beach Links, the course was developed on reserve land during the 1930s depression era. Now bearing the name of an ancient Scottish clan, (the Cheseholmes, later Chisholms, are of Norman and Saxon origin) the course was substantially reworked by New Zealand tour professional and golf course architect Greg Turner and others in the late-1990s.
