About us

1st Fairway

The Napier Golf Club “Waiohiki” is the oldest Golf Club in Hawke’s Bay Est 1896, having celebrated its Centenary in 1996. Over the years it has been the site of many New Zealand and inter-provincial tournaments, in fact hosting the first ever New Zealand Open in 1907.

Centrally located on 1215 Korokipo Road,  State Highway 50, (just past E.I.T. and over the old bridge) the Waiohiki links provides an easy walking, tree-lined, 18-hole championship course which is a challenging test for both the beginner and low handicapper.

Our course and facilities are among the best in the Bay and we hope you get lots of pleasure in using them.

Fairway irrigation provides excellent year round conditions enabling visitors every opportunity to enjoy this wonderful golfing destination.

There is a fully stocked pro shop with all your golfing accessories and services including hire of clubs, shoes, trundlers and motorized carts.  Click here to see more about Andrew Henare Golf
