Waimari Beach Golf Club Information

Waimari Beach Golf ClubWaimairi Beach Golf Club is within 10 minutes drive from Avon City Motel.

Founded in 1932 the Waimairi Beach Golf Club celebrated its 75th Jubilee in February 2007. To mark the occasion specially monogrammed shirts and wine glasses were produced and a book "75 Years at Waimairi" was published. All these items are still available for sale.

Waimairi is one of the few clubs which actually "owns" its own course, having been freeholded in 1999. Sharpies Golf Superstore operate a Pro Shop on course and a resident professional is available for lessons. Waimairi is renowned for its pine trees, slick greens and its friendly atmosphere.

The Course:
Situated approx. 1 kilometre from Waimairi Beach is based entirely on sand. Gently rolling tree lined fairways, with medium sized greens. The course is always in immaculate condition and the greens are well known as the most consistent and quickest in Canterbury. There is seldom a day without a sea breeze to make this 5,889 metre par 72 course a real test of golf.

The Facilities:
A large character clubhouse with large windows allowing views across the course and in particular the 18th fairway and green. The caterers live in a flat attached to the clubhouse and there are full bar facilities. There is a fully stocked Pro Shop manned 7 days a week.

The course was purchased by the members from Ngai Tahu in 2000. A small parcel of land was sold in 2008 and interest from the funds held allows healthy and continuing development on the course and facilities.
