Hole-In-1 Golf Challenge

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. Keep an eye out on our FB page and website www.ohgc.co.nz

In meantime enjoy a coffee, snack, water hire activities and E Bike Hire these things are open again Friday - Sunday when the weather is good. 


Come play Dunedin’s very own Hole-In-1 Golf Challenge and experience something unique and very rare to find around the world. Tee off and hit golf balls over the water aiming at a floating pontoon on the Otago Harbour - 100m out from shore and at the same time be in to win $10,000 for getting the ball in the standard sized hole plus 2 other larger easier holes, while at the same time experience the Otago Harbour in an unorthodox manner!

You can do this activity in less than 15 minutes or stay for hours it's entirely up to your schedule. Novices have just as much fun, if not more, than experienced players and we supply are variety of golf clubs for men, woman and even kids. Regardless of your skill level you will get some great social media pictures that will turn heads with the Dunedin city views in the backdrop as you strike that golf ball from shore!

We also have a free golf putting game on shore for kids/families in front of our Cafe where kids can win a lolly, our A-Grade food rating cafe has locally brewed Strictly Coffee, baking and healthy food which is ideal for those who just want to watch the punters and soak in the magnificent views of Dunedin City and the Otago Harbour in the backdrop.

This venue is also at the very start of Portobello Road which is on the way to Dunedin's amazing Otago Peninsula which hosts internationally reknown attractions such as Larnach Castle and the Albatross Colony. OHGC Ltd is just a 5 minute drive from the CBD or by bike on the dedicated cycle way - 15 minutes.
