    Good spot to go hit 100 balls - open late as well which is handy.

    There's also the option to hit off grass, which many ranges don't offer, and the pro-shop has a lot of golfing equipment to browse.

    I recently attended a conference at the Russley Golf Club and thought the facilities were very good. I was particularly impressed that they had pinot gris at their bar. I wouldn't typically expect this sort of venue to have moved with the times and have this wine varietal available (it still remains quite limited in some restaurants!!). But they had it and it was a nice one and very well priced. The facilities were lovely and clean and well maintained and the service at the bar was great. From what I could see there was also a great camaraderie between the bar staff and the regular punters (presumed golfers) and this is a nice vibe.

    Christchurch Golf Club has been in existence for over 100 years. It is steeped in tradition and was Bob Charles home course. A very nice track that offers challenges to golfers of all standards
    I have been fortunate enough to play here a number of times when visiting Christchurch and have never been disappointed. A very good golf course and a very welcoming clubhouse to enjoy a post game snack and drink
    I will definitely be here for another game when next in Christchurch

    Fro. The moment you arrive you fee welcome. The bloke in the pro shop is extremely friendly and helpful.

    The carts are perfectly presented.

    By wait there’s more.

    The course is just outstanding. The tee boxes are in wonderful condition, the fairways tricky but extremely well manicured.
    And the greens are just wonderful. Very undulating, local knowledge is an advantage but a great challenge none the less.

    We shot early 80”s. It was a great place to play and enjoy an outing.

    I can understand some of the comments from other reviewers on the behaviour of some members. This is our fourth time here and they are not pleasant. They play very slowly, so not let you thru. Hit up on you, walk across and play on your fairway when you are teeing off.
    Yes they own the course but simple etiquette is free.

    Went for the first time today and will definitely return. Yummy cabinet food, good breakfast menu, even a jar of dog cookies for your dog, great coffee and lovely friendly service.
    This is a copy of another review that I completely agree with.
    "I can't find a place to review the cafe separately from the golf course, but I think this is a hidden gem of Hagley Park. Everyone knows about the glitzy (and busy/expensive) Cafe Ilex in the Botanic Gardens, but this one is 100 m from the Armagh St Carpark & has peaceful views over the golf course. It need more outdoor seating as there seems to be only one outdoor table at present. Bike parking is a plus if you are cycling through Hagley Park"

    We did all 3 mini golf courses and loved it. The monster one was nice and easy (would be great for kids) the volcano one was a bit harder, the gondola hole needs some fixing. We lost 2 balls in the mechanics. Was otherwise a fun course. We did it at night and the lighting on the volcano course was a bit rough but added to our fun in a way. The grasslands course was great! Very different in terms of a mini golf course but heaps of fun. Overall really enjoyed it.

    Sited opposite Orana Wild life Park and next to the Maclean Island Cycle track this is a really good caravan parking area. Not expensive - shower and toilet available and you don't really notice the golfers parking and playing!!!! The cycle track was our first off road ride and we loved it.

    The course is of good quality and an ennoyable club to.play at.
    The clubhouse is old and dated but still a good place for a Beer.

    Our Guys monthly Coffee Group have changed our venue to the Waimairi Golf Club Café as it is pretty good to be able to enjoy good coffee and some eats in a nice environment like this.
    What with the greens and trees, it is much nicer than a Cafe with only walls and streets and traffic to look out on.
    And worth noting too that the Café premises are newish having being built new since the quakes I believe. Nice Premises.

    The Coffees are good and likewise the food and they are both generous in their size or proportions as well as tasting good.

    Parking is fine there but you may have a short walk to the cafe if the main car park right next to the clubhouse is full.

    We will all be back soon as a group for the above reasons - do try the Café at Waimairi Golf Club which you will find out at 460 Bower Avenue and not too far away from the Waimairi Beach area.

    The whole day was great and very well run. The golf was great, the Lunch was better and the Wine tasting was fantastic. despite not being a huge wine drinker it was a very educational day learning more about wine. All round fantastic outing with staff and a couple of our members/customers.

    Cant wait to do it again in the near future!

    Thank you Grant and Alison

    Concession card from GrabOne meant this round cost $12.50. A bargain, especially given the fantastically fast and firm greens and great condition fairways and tee boxes.

    This phenomenal experience is a must for all golfers. Set amongst New Zealand's finest scenery, this picturesque course is one of Christchurch's best. With 18 spectacular holes to play, even a bad round of golf would not put you in an unhappy mood. It is also the home of New Zealand's PGA. The course record on this par 70 course is 63 held by Andy Walsh, shot during the second round of 2003's Christchurch Masters. The restaurant and cafe serve delicious food and pricing is excellent in all areas. I recommend this course to all visitors of Christchurch. The best time of year to play is early-September to late-October.
