Golf Club & Course

The Rarangi Golf Club recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary and enjoys an enviable reputation as one of the top courses in the “Top-of-the-South”.  A popular course for major competitions and inter-provincial events it also has a reputation for being one of the most welcoming to visitors with its friendly members and social clubhouse.

The Club has about 250 members and employs two paid greens staff – a senior Green keeper and a grounds man. The Club is managed by a volunteer committee who are supported by a willing workforce of members at working bees and carrying out everyday maintenance work freeing the greens staff for ongoing development of the course.

As there is no full time manager at the course you may not get an immediate response to a phone call at 03 570 5709; or email us at


The club invites members of the Motor Caravan Association to park overnight before or after a game of golf. Fee $10 for parking is waived if at least one green fee is paid. Showers and toilets available.
