SPRINGFIELD GOLF CLUB
Golf Club is located in central Rotorua, Devon Street
West. Springfield is the only championship course in Rotorua.
The course measures at 5639 meters from the blue tees
(championship) and 4948 meters from the yellow tees (ladies).
The men's club tees (white) play 5434 meters long. The
course par 70 mens (72 ladies) might be short but it still
offers a great challenge Springfield is known for its
extremely tight fairways (one measuring only 8 meters
wide) and its vast amount of trees.
The need for a second 18 hole golf course in the late
1930's prompted a group of local golfers (mostly playing
on the 9 hole course at the government gardens) to look
for suitable land close to town on which to establish
a new club. On 13 November 1947 a meeting was held and
the new club was to be known as Springfield Golf Club.
It was then up to the committee to find suitable land
on which to establish a new course. It was seven months
of, at times, frustrating negotiations before a satisfactory
lease was finalised. The land at first was swampy and
covered in barberry, gorse, broom and farm fencing. It
took many years for the initial laying out of the course
and this was done by an enthusiastic team of volunteers.
This is the area in play today. In 1967 a new $50,000
clubhouse was opened and in 1973 an automatic water system
was installed around each of the greens.
Over the years, the Club has been privileged to host some
prestigious golf tournaments, including NZGA Men's Amateur
Championship, NZ Junior Boys, NZ Maori Tournament, NZ
Ladies Amateur plus The Tower Inter-provincials.
International Golf Course - rated by the Prestigious US
Golf Digest magazine to be in the top 100 courses in the

there is little doubt in any New Zealanders mind that
this trio exceeded all expectations. The end result is
a course that sprawls over 450 acres of natural countryside.
This coupled with the 6444 metres from the championship
tees and 108 large well placed bunkers has led to worldwide
acclaim.The course and facilities are open to the public

in hosting corporate events and providing a friendly atmosphere
