9-Hole Public Golf Course

The course is easy walking with a par of 30. There are six par 3s ranging from 73m to 185m, and three par 4s ranging from 280m to 310m. The course record is currently 26, held by Frankton Golf Club head PGA professional, Jamie 'J-Mac' McIsaac.

 

Covered Driving Range

The 10-bay driving range is a popular place to warm up or fine-tune your swing. Novice players can practice without the pressure of worrying if the ball doesn’t quite go where they intended! Five of the bays are covered allowing all weather practice. This is great for when it is too wet to get out on the course or if you just want to blaze away and see how far you can get it.

  • Frankton Golf Centre is now home of the South Island's first official FootGolf course, which opened early in October 2015.

    The niche sport is steadily spreading throughout the world, combining two of the world’s most popular sports, football and golf. Players aim to get a size five football into a 21-inch hole using as few kicks as possible. It’s the same concept as golf, except you use your feet and a football.

    What's great about the game is that it's so family orientated. So mum, dad and the kids can come out and have a game together. We've got footballs available and no other equipment is required.

    For more info and bookings please phone 03 442 3584 or email golf@qldc.govt.nz.
