Water hire

Welcome to the Otago Harbour Golf Challenge

Note bikes can now be hired from the city centre as well on days we are not open at OHGC or any day including weekdays. Book here: https://www.dunedinebike.co.nz/

Sorry the golf challenge is not open yet.We are easing back into it since we closed the business after COVID19 lockdown in April 2020, we have only just reopened and are in the process of hiring and training more shore staff and water ball retrieval staff first before we can open the golf. But come enjoy amazing coffee, sacks on the waterfront and the eBike side of the operation is still open. 

Please note no cash sales onsite, Eftpos, credit card or paywave only, adjusting to the contactless payment due to recent events and also helps us run leaner overheads as handling cash comes with costs.
