Located among vineyards you'll enjoy the scenery and course challenge when you play at Marlborough Golf Club, Fairhall, Blenheim. Founded in 1900, it's one of New Zealand's oldest courses.The par is 72 over 6052 metres off the blue tees. With only 400 members the course is never crowded. It's a friendly club where visitors are extremely welcome. Usually you can tee off without having to book a time. It's easy walking with a variety of trees and terrain, water hazards and out of bounds in the vines making it a good test of golf. Each hole is different from the next. The course is extremely well maintained by Gavin the green keeper ably assisted by club volunteers. Having an extensive course watering system in the sunniest place in the country also helps. The new clubhouse offers great home-cooked food by Carolyn and choice local wines from the club's sponsors, so the 19th is well worth a visit after your game. The club is 8 minutes' drive from Blenheim town centre and near many of the region's top cellar doors. A round of golf with us is an essential stop during your visit to Marlborough. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Played a few courses in Marlborough and this is by far the best. Not easy, but fair and the holes are different and a good golf challenge. Would also recommend the 9 hole at Picton Golf Club.

The course is well-served by a staffed pro-shop. Buggies, carts and clubs are available for hire. The pro-shop has an excellent range of well-priced goods. The course itself is a demanding one with a good range of hazards: water, sand bunkers, grass bunker, out of...More

Fantastic golf course surrounded by vineyards makes for picturesque backdrops on multiple holes. Add to that a medium length but very challenging course for all players where accuracy and straightness rewards the player with good scoring opportunities. Out of bounds on a number of right...More

We played a couple of rounds in November and was pleasantly surprised considering the green fees. It is quite typical of a New Zealand countryside golf course. A few challenging par fours, namely the fourth where you are required to lay up and then hit...More
