About




Titahi Golf Club History

Tena koutou katoa. Welcome to Titahi Golf Club, the home of 2005 US Open Champion Michael Campbell. At Titahi Golf Club, we nurture champions. Not only did Michael Campbell begin his golfing career at Titahi Golf Club, but so did Lynette Brooky. Both of these players represent New Zealand in the toughest golf competitions around the world, achieving remarkable results at every turn. And we don’t think they are done yet! Titahi Golf Club offers a warm comfortable clubhouse with friendly members, hospitable bar staff and a fantastic inhouse caterer who will create for you either a beautiful meal or a superb mixed platter of fingerfoods. Imagine sitting back on our sheltered deck watching the sunset behind Mana Island with a glass of your choice. Our course is open 7 days a week, and green fee players are welcome anytime Monday to Friday, most Saturdays, and Sunday afternoons. We do hire golf clubs and trundlers, but bookings are essential. Please give us a call to book a tee time or just call in and see what the course and clubhouse have to offer.

At Titahi Golf we are very proud of our history. Titahi Golf Club became an Incorporated Society on 17 June 1929. At that stage the course was located on the southwest side of Titahi Bay. The original club house was located on Tireti Road and is now known as Tireti Hall. The photo below shows the 1937 touring Springbok side playing on what appears to now be Matatiro Street.

The Club closed down during World War II, and the American soldiers made camp on the Course. On 12 April 1958, the Club was reopened on its present site on Whitireia Park. The photos below show members of the day with handmowers, on what is now the 6th tee.

Those early members had a vision for our club and community, and at Titahi we are determined to see that vision fulfilled.

Our more recent history has seen the Club produce world class champions in both Lynnette Brooky and Michael Campbell. In 2004 and 2006 they were named New Zealand Female and Male Golfers of the year respectively. No other Golf Club in New Zealand has the honour of boasting such an achievement. Michael’s historic US Open win in 2005 speaks for itself.
