About Golf Otago

Golf Otago is the regional governing body of the affiliated golf clubs in the Otago province, one of the 15 “Member Districts” of New Zealand Golf Incorporated.

Otago is the largest district of the NZ Golf network, in terms of number of clubs and land area, with 46 affiliated clubs spread over 32,000 square kilometres.

Governance of the sport in Otago is administered by a Board of 7 directors, drawn from the 4 Sub-Associations of Dunedin Metropolitan, North Otago, South Otago and Central Otago.

Total club membership numbers some 10,000 with many more casual players taking advantage of the reasonable green fee rates prevalent throughout the province.

Whether you are a member of an Otago golf club or a visitor to the area, you are truly in the land of plenty. Otago’s golf courses cover the full spectrum, from country classics with sheep trimming the fairways (with greens protected by electric fences) to top quality international resorts, set against the stunning Southern Lakes scenery.

Whatever your preference for style of golf course, the common thread is the warmth of the welcome you will receive from club staff and members.
