The Grange Golf Club: GOLF CLUB MERGED WITH ROYAL AUCKLAND GOLF CLUB IN 2017. Once separated by a creek (a tributary of the Tamaki River), the historic golf clubs of Royal Auckland and Grange initiated a bold merger in 2017. From their combined 36 holes, a new 27-hole course will emerge, with 13 holes on the Grange side of the creek, and 14 on the Royal Auckland side. Two bridges and a new clubhouse will sit between the two sections of the newly merged club, with the Nicklaus Design 27-hole layout due for completion in 2021 (play will continue during the redesign project).

[Original Where2Golf description of Grange Golf Club]: Although found in the bustling suburbs of Auckland, the stresses and strains of modern-day living will melt away as you set-off down the Grange's opening hole. With a small lake at the second hole and an abundance of tree varieties lightly lining the fairways, the garden-like qualities of this excellently maintained course are quickly established.

The undulating terrain contains a few deep gullies, but each has a conveniently placed footbridge to save too much physical effort. Ball-finding is also not too difficult, should you stray off the excellent fairways. There is not too much rough to speak of, but bushes, large oval bunkering and OB on some holes are all there to be avoided. Together with its next door neighbour Royal Auckland, and the MacKenzie-designed Titirangi, the Grange is one of a triumvirate of leading courses just a short drive from the centre of Auckland.

Did you know?

Originally known as Otahuhu Golf Club, the Grange was founded in 1924 and set itself apart from the very beginning by offering equal rights to men and women. The Club began as a nine-hole course on the Otahuhu Trotting Club property in Tennessee Ave, Mangere East. In 1931, it leased the Grange property on Great South Road, later buying the land and in 1944 becoming known as the Grange Golf Club.

In its day the Grange GC hosted several New Zealand Open Championships (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Grange). In 2017 the Club ceased to exist as a separate entity, following a merger with its neighbour, Royal Auckland Golf Club.
