The course was founded in 1928 and boasts being one of only three courses in the South Island to have views of Mount Cook, along with views of the Southern Alps. The clubhouse is an impressive sight, the original homestead and a popular venue for not only many club activities, but private and corporate functions as well. Timaru is known as the ‘centre of the south’ being approximately half way between Christchurch and Dunedin.
