You have to concentrate on keeping your eye on the game when playing at The Cairns, because this is one of the world’s most beautiful golf courses, with stunning panoramas of mountains, tussock plains, and blue lake. The Cairns Golf Course is a fun-yet-strategic links-designed 9-hole golf course, with two tee blocks per green allowing you to play a full 18-hole round. This is golf at its purest and is reminiscent of golf in Scotland where the game has its origins.
The greens were established where there is some shelter and good grass was already growing. From there, we worked backwards to find the teeing area. No soil has been moved, except to level the tees. What you have on this course was always here; all we did was cut the grass to define the fairways. We have tried to preserve what has been here for a long time, including the 70-year-old post distance markers on the ninth hole.
Enjoy the golf, enjoy the strategy, and enjoy the outstanding views! Pay green fees at the honesty box on course, and for gear rental, visit us at the The Cairns Alpine Resort Reception at 48 Dárchiac Drive.
