Manawatu Golf Club
The Manawatu Golf Club in Hokowhitu, Palmerston North is the oldest golf course in New Zealand still on the same site it was originally chosen for. Formed in 1895 it has had an extensive history. Over the years the number of holes (and acreage of land) has increased, and the course layout changed. With ongoing successful turf management and continual development, the attractive park-like setting provides a challenging and stern test of golfing ability. Many world class players, and a number of notable professionals who were junior members, have strolled the fairways and major championships have been played on the course. Inspire Net is proud to sponsor the 13th Hole, the most underrated Par four on the course. For more about playing golf in the Manawatu visit www.manawatugolfclub.com
