Waverley Golf Club is situated only 5 minutes from the Waverley township or 30 minutes from Wanganui or Hawera. It is a challenging, undulating course. The club is small but very social and visitors are welcome at anytime. Great views of all mountains on a clear day make for a special outing.
One of the “black sheep” courses of NZ, W.G.C is a hidden gem with black sand that shapes this great gold land.
Renowned golf course architect Tom Doak has rated W.G.C as the 10th best in NZ in his book Confidential Guide to Golf Courses vol 5.
This is after evaluating the world’s best courses and in 2018 our Waverley country course made the cut.
W.G.C was established in 1965. It was all cleared mainly by members using their own DC3 Oliver tractor with a blade on the front.
The course was designed by Ernie Southerden, a pro golfer from Napier, and has developed into what it is today.
With its natural contours, W.G.C is a must visit!
