For the Community

We aim to provide as much benefit to the local community as we can. We have partnered with a number of local businesses in the development of this venture, and our suppliers are sourced locally whenever we can.

Our goal is for locals and visitors alike to have the opportunity to get out and enjoy what our beautiful city has to offer. We want to make the water and cycleways accessible for anyone, especially those that may not have the equipment at home to enjoy these sorts of activities, and hope our customers will enjoy themselves so much that they will be encouraged to join local clubs as well.

We also have special discounts just for Dunedin residents, to say thank you for the support we have received. Register (free) to receive your membership card and access to these offers.



The OHGC story so far

Otago Harbour Golf Challenge Ltd was founded by Dunedin local Peter Graham in 2018. We wanted to offer something different for local residents as well as visitors to the wonderful city of Dunedin.

The location was key for this venture, as it needed to be suitable for the retrieval of the golf balls from the Hole in 1 Challenge. Dunedin has also invested heavily in its cycle network recently, including the extension to the Peninsula cycleway currently under way, and we wanted to encourage locals to use these resources.

After 2 years of solid investigation and preparation for an extensive Resource Consent process with the Dunedin City Council and Otago Regional Council, we were granted consent. This was followed by an appeal, which was resolved after another long year with some minor changes to the way OHGC would operate, and the venture was given final approval by the Environment Court of New Zealand. Work is now well under way to open for the summer of 2019, three years after we first started the concept for our hub of activities.  

A man’s dream and ideas can come true through the support of others. Thank you Dunedin. Welcome to Dunedin's Hole in 1 Challenge for your enjoyment.
