New Zealand Courses

Chisholm Links

Dunedin, South Island

Located to the southeast of Christchurch, come and see why Chisholm Links, a Scottish-style links course, is Dunedin’s best golf experience! Chisholm Links is a member’s golf club that offers a warm environment for local and visiting golfers. There members are known for their friendliness and local hospitality and they always forward to having visitors come and play their golf course.

The course was developed on reserve land during the 1930’s depression years. The original name was Ocean Beach Links. From these humble beginnings it has become one of the best links courses in the country. Former European and Australasian Tour professional and leading New Zealand Golf Course architect, Greg Turner, thinks Chisholm Links is very special. He said, “It has good turf and it’s on good golfing land. It offers classic links golf. I think, that after Paraparaumu Beach, it’s the second best links course in New Zealand”. The undulating terrain and its coastal climate offset the lack of length. There are wonderful views over Tomahawk, St Kilda and St Clair beaches. Along the top of Holes 8, 9, 10 and 11, the course provides some of the most spectacular ocean views to be found on any golf course.
