Waitemata Golf Club
One of the great things about devonport is that everything, including the 18 hole Waitemata Golf Club is walking distance from the ferry. The course contour is flat, allowing easy walking through beautiful parklike surroundings with well established trees, shrubs and water features.
Non playing public may walk through our course. So the club asks to “please share with care.” The course was originally nine holes within the perimeter of a horse racing track. Motorbike racing, horse racing, greyhound and professional foot racing shared alison park until 1934. The first full season of the Waitemata Golf Club on alison park took place in 1906, with annual subs of one guinea for men, and ten shillings and sixpence for women.
Players were to use caddies and pay them sixpence for the afternoon and one penny for each ball found. Today’s club has all the facilities and services you’d expect from a modern day club including 2 putting greens, a driving range, 3 practise nets, electric carts, a cafe, restaurant/bar and rental equiped is available at its pro shop. Kids are made very welcome at the club with kids lessons, rental clubs and play area.
