Ben Ohau Golf Club

For those who live within membership distance of Twizel's Ben Ohau Golf Course, the sight of the Southern Alps and clear blue skies on a constant basis are simply a way of life.

The district is renowned for its lack of rainfall yet golfers play on green grass along tree-lined fairways where once neither grass nor trees existed. The 9-hole layout is setup for an 18-hole card over 5,345 metres.
