There's more to Norfolk Island There's more to Norfolk Island

Let’s face it, if you’re reading this, you’re probably of the mind that it’s not a real holiday unless there are a few rounds of golf involved. Well you can relax because our island has one of the most scenic golf courses on the planet. Set amid our iconic pines and edged by the South Pacific waters of Emily Bay, the Norfolk Island golf course offers jaw-dropping views from every hole. But there’s more to our open-links style course than just good looks. Locals know better than anyone that its gentle, scenic beauty lures players into a false sense of confidence. With gusty, ball-snatching winds, thick kikuyu grass and short, unforgiving greens, these 18 holes will certainly give you a run for your money.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a family keen to play golf, everyone is welcome to sign on and start swinging. And the invitation also extends to our friendly clubhouse, set within the picturesque former residence of the stipendiary magistrate. So after your game, pull up a seat on the sunny veranda for a well-deserved drink and share your tales of triumph and woe with fellow golf fanatics.
