Designed in 1949 by Alex Russell, whose design credits include the world-famous Royal Melbourne golf course, Paraparaumu Beach is considered one of the best links courses in the Southern Hemisphere. Modeled on some of the best links courses of Britain and Ireland, the challenging layout threads its way through magnificent linksland just north of Wellington, and once you’ve experienced it, you’ll understand just why golf played at Paraparaumu Beach Golf Course is golf at its purest.

Waikanae Golf Club

Waikanae Golf Course is a beautiful 18 hole course that is enjoyable to play but still offers plenty of challenge for the keen golfer. It has been the qualifying venue when the New Zealand Open has been played at Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club.

Has a Pro shop that is open every day and a bar and cafeteria that are open most days of the week.

The Waikanae 13th Hole is the the signature hole on the Waikanae Course. Teeing from elevated tees for the men and lower level for the women. Tee shots are required over the wetlands and stream. A wide fairway awaits a good tee shot. Then a straight forward shot will then avoid the bunker short and right of the green. The green slopes from south to north. Though a seemingly simple hole this hole is rightfully stroke hole 1 for men.
