Southland Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.
Southland Golf Club: GOLF COURSE WAS CLOSED IN APRIL 2018, due to declining membership and financial pressures. There is no clear plan to re-open the course ... and if that remains the case, a little piece of New Zealand's wonderful golfing heritage will have slipped away. Check current status before planning a visit.

[Original Where2Golf description]: Southland Golf Club at Oreti Sands might be a relatively basic layout, somewhat flat and rather bunkerless, but it thoroughly deserves its place in New Zealand golfing lore. It is after all reputedly the world's most southerly 18-hole golf course (the course at Stanley in the Falkland Islands is much further south, but only 12 holes!).
