Our course is interesting, challenging and picturesque, and our members friendly and accommodating. Best of all, we’re not overcrowded, and in all likelihood you’ll get a game any time of the week. Best to ring first and check, though, just in case.
We offer a bit of everything for golfers of all abilities. Rolling land, without being too hilly, provides a natural setting for some excellent holes. The nearby Piako River and several stands of native trees bring nature close to the golfer: a number of rare kaka winter over on the course, and tui and other native birds adorn the course at various times of the year. Our sand-based greens are usually even-paced and true, and the course is generally well-maintained.
Morrinsville is regarded as a short course, but this is deceiving. Being par 69 reduces the length somewhat, and six par 3s have a similar effect. The par 4s are either short and tricky or long and demanding, and each has its own personality. Morrinsville members will tell you that there are no two holes alike. Par is not often broken even by the best golfers. Shooting one’s age is, however, an easier task here!
Take a look at the course hole-by-hole – front nine or back nine.
As of April 2012 we will have blue, white and yellow tee options available on a number of holes. Yellow are the Ladies tees, White are the Men’s tees and Blue are for the Young Bucks.
NZ Golf rerated the course in early April at 117 rising from 110 and off the blue tees, which add an extra 314m to the course length, the rating is 115.
