Mount Maunganui Golf Club


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Mount Maunganui Golf Club Est. 1935

Where2Golf says: 

Mount Maunganui Golf Club: The Mount, as this excellently maintained parkland course is often called, comprises three very attractive 6-hole loops. There is a certain uniformity in the design, with each of the loops heading east for three holes, before turning back with three westerly-facing holes that return you to the modern and impressive clubhouse. This uniformity does not however imply monotony - far from it. The lightly tree-lined fairways, excellent bunkering, well-paced greens, views onto Mount Manganui and generally very pleasant parkland environment, ensures that you become absorbed and tested with each hole in turn. The terrain is gently undulating in parts, flatter in others, and blends a good mix of stout fir trees with one or two more open aspects - enough to require straight hitting from the tee, but also allowing frequent use of the driver. The opening loop, with several shortish holes, is where you should try to build a good early score - things get decidely more difficult after this opening stretch.

Mount Manganui, the round headland that is seen from different parts of the course offers terrific views of the Pacific Ocean and the area around Tauranga. A walk around its base takes about 45 minutes, or up to the summit and back about 90 minutes - great views either way. Back at the golf club, start times are usually scheduled from 8 'til 9 in the morning, and 12 'til 1 in the afternoon, with groups setting off simultaneously from the 1st, 7th and 13th tees.

The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
