Where2Golf says: 

St Clair Golf Club sits on the cliffs above Dunedin's beautiful St Clair Beach. The course offers world class views of the Pacific Ocean, its beaches and the beautiful city of Dunedin (often called "the Edinburgh of the south"). Although not overly long by modern standards, this tree-lined and open parkland layout should not disappoint.

While the front-nine is arguably the easier of the two, there is plenty to keep golfers on their toes throughout. The undulating greens will test any player’s putting skill to the full, while on days when the sea breeze is blowing the course takes on a totally different character. In addition to the views, the St Clair layout also contains many attractive features with several excellent holes to enjoy.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLES: simply for the stunning coastal scenery and Pacific Ocean views, the par-5 14th and par-4 15th usually take top honours amongst local and visiting golfers alike.
