“Nice course and convenient to the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

An excellent, well maintained course and definitely worth playing 18 holes at Miramar Golf Club but like the other reviewers have said, it can be very, very difficult on a windy day. In my opinion this just add's to it's charm. It only takes about 10 minutes from the CBD to get here, making it super convenient. Keep an eye out on the discount websites, as it appears every now and again saving you $$$'s.

“Great links well located but watch out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

I like this course. On a still day it is reasonably challenging, on a windy day it can be a killer. And Wellington has plenty of windy days. Because of the wind the greens are cut to be a bit slow - otherwise they would be unplayable.

My warning is not about the wind, however. This must be one of the most dangerous golf courses in the world. I have never been hit myself but several people who I have been playing with have been hit by golf balls, sometimes these have been travelling at great speed from a nearby tee. So be vigilant!

“Can you play in the wind?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

This is a nice course located very near the Wellington Airport. It has very few trees and is exposed to the strong winds. This allows the character of the course to change dramatically depending on which way the wind is blowing. It is a lot of fun! It is just not as challenging as some of the other courses in the area.

“Windy but nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Its not a premium course, but its well run and maintained and very popular. I personally prefer to rent a cart. No real killer holes.

Played on a fine sunny day and it was great, the next time the wind was a monster and it was one of the worst golf experiences
