Where2Golf says: 

Manawatu Golf Club: Also known as Hokowhitu, the layout here starts with a pleasant par-4, lined with palms, pines, birches and occasional eucalyptus - a clear indication that a rather delightful, tree-lined, parkland course awaits. Look beyond the first fairway and the essential flatness of the course will also be apparent. As early as the 4th hole you'll notice the sandstone cliffs of the adjacent Manawatu River, but you'll need to wait until the par-3 16th hole before seeing the river itself. (Should you wish to cross the river, an aerial runway appears to be on hand for that purpose !). The high quality housing hereabouts lines much of the course's perimeter, as does part of the Massey University campus (on the back-nine). Within the course, its the tightish fairways that will focus your golfing brain, and trees, trees, trees that will provide the scenic interest and the golfing challenge, as you try to shape innovative recovery shots around, under and over them. All in all, a pleasantly enjoyable parkland course - always very well maintained.
