Tarras Golf Club
The Tarras Golf Club was established in 1956 in the heart of Central Otago’s sheep farming country. Just outside the village, it is located along State Highway 8, North of Cromwell and East of Wanaka. Tarras village is a popular stop for coffee and lunch. The unique Country Store and Merino Shop offer local produce and wine tastings. Here you also find the famous Shrek museum.
Tarras Golf Club is one of the few remaining original rural golf courses in New Zealand where sheep graze the fairways and small fences around the greens make sure the animals don’t touch the putting surface!
Even though it is a 9 hole course, when played twice, different tees provide alternative starting points and make it an interesting par 72 challenge. Members play all year round and are only occasionally forced off the course during snow in the Central Otago winters. Our nearest 18 hole courses are located in Cromwell, Wanaka, Alexandra, Arrowtown and Queenstown.
Tarras Golf club is a fully affiliated club to New Zealand Golf and offers full membership to all, including international visitors. Green fee players are welcome at any time of the year ($15 per round). The club rooms are open during members days.
Our main tournaments (John Annan Memorial and Ladies Open) take places in the first week of September each year and are linked with the Wanaka Open tournaments
