The course is set in an idyllic country location surrounded by native bush clad hills where only sounds you hear are birds and farm animals. The championship blue course is 5628m and the white club course is 5392m, both are par 70. The women’s and men’s yellow course is 4810m and par 71.
The fairways are tree lined and there are two stony streams that meander across or beside all but four holes. The course rewards accuracy off the tee and several holes play to elevated greens making otherwise straightforward approaches significantly more challenging.
The greens are some of the best browntop putting surfaces around. They can appear relatively flat but beware of the breaks and if your ball is above the hole you may be left with a tricky downhill putt.
The Goldfields Pitch n Putt is Wellington’s only 9 hole pitch and putt course with holes from 45m to 90m long. It is a good way to start for people new to the game and also is great fun for a family day out.
The club has excellent practice facilities with a 240m long practice fairway, 3 bay driving nets, chipping green including bunkers and putting greens.
The clubhouse provides a place to relax after your game with café and bar services available on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
