I recently was on holiday in Blenheim and had the chance to play golf at Marlborough Golf Club Fairhall and had the best experience. The course is well maintained and creates a challanging game. The greens rolled well and seemed to be a little tricky...More

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.

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

My wife and I plus a friend played the course on a lovely sunny day. Whilst it is not championship standard it is not a track either. The views are spectacular and the course offers a good challenge. Some holes require good club selection. It's...More
