The Club

The historic Otago Golf Club, founded in 1871, has a solid membership and welcomes men, women and school-aged children.

The picturesque 18-hole layout is renowned as one of the top golf courses in the South Island. Its hilly terrain, quality fairways and greens will challenge all levels of golfer.

Other benefits of the Club include convenient quality practise facilities and a clubhouse with lounge, dining and bar areas. There is also a fully stocked and staffed Pro Shop attached to the clubhouse.

The clubhouse has elevated views over the golf course and is a popular venue for conferences, weddings, family and business functions – both large and small.

The Club is just 3km from the centre of Dunedin and has ample parking space.
