Clearwater Golf Resort

User Rating: Rate-4 (4.5) | Add A Review

Clearwater Resort, situated in the outer suburbs of Christhcurch, has opened to a blaze of publicity due in no small way to the fact that it staged a co-sanctioned US Buy.Com Tour/Australasian Tour event, the Holden Clearwater Classic even before its official opening on March 23rd.

It has since gone on to stage further events on the Nationwide Tour, including the NZ PGA Championship and more recently the New Zealand Open

The Resort is an integrated real estate, hotel, accommodation and golfing facility targeted towards the high end of the real estate market. The fact that all the real estate released in the first phase has been sold at prices considerably higher than were initially thought possible suggested a pent up demand for this type of project in this region.

The golf course has already proven, so early in its existence, to be a first class tournament venue both in terms of tournament logistics and as a test of golf with the likelihood of further events there in the future.

Clearwater has an exposed links look, and to play well here you will need to know how to control the ball in wind. Stray shots are severly penalised and scoring near handicap is always a challenge.

I live here and love it. It's a course for those that like a challenge and who can adapt to the moods of the natural elements - which I struggle with!

This is the second year in operation and the fairways and greens are already the best in Canterbury. The links look gives great panoramic views across the plains to the southern Alps.
