Chisholm Links is a member’s golf club that offers a warm environment for local and visiting golfers. 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 NZ Golf Course architect, Greg Turner, thinks Chisholm Links is pretty 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 links hosted the three Australasian PGA Tour Events in 2001, 2002 & 2004 along with the New Zealand Amateur Championship in 2003.
Chisholm Links is not long (Par 71, measuring 5700 metres/6300yds) but is a true test of golf - few players get the better of it.
