The Tairua Golf Club was formed in 1965 when a group of enthusiasts met to consider making a golf course and club available in Tairua. A founding committee was formed and with much volunteer labour a nine-hole course was developed on a Lands & Survey block at Hikuai some 10 miles from Tairua. The club opened for play on Easter Sunday March 26th 1966.
In 1970 the club relocated to its present site in Tairua township and established a new nine-hole course, which was ready for play by Christmas of that year. Further holes were added and the course was extended to twelve holes by 1974. In 1973 the club changed its name from the Tairua Golf Club to the Tairua Country Club in order to better recognise the three sporting codes which were to be catered for on the site – golf, bowls and eventually croquet. In 1994 the golf course was extended to a full 18 holes and the club now provides an 18-hole golf course and 4 lawn croquet green.
Tairua is a picturesque seaside village on the Eastern Seaboard of the Coromandel Peninsula and is only 1 ½ to 2 hour drive from Auckland or the Waikato.
From Mt Paku (at the entrance to the Tairua Harbour) there are magic views along the Coastline, Tairua Ocean Beach, Tairua Harbour, Across to Pauanui, The Coromandel Ranges and out to to the Alderman Islands, Slipper Island and beyond.
Being centrally located on the Coromandel Peninsula we are only the proverbial “hop, step and jump” to Whitianga, Cooks Beach, Ha Hei, Hot Water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Whangamata and a little further away Matarangi, Kuotuna and Coromandel.
The Tairua Country Club is located on the Main Highway and almost in the centre of town. We are only a short walk to the town centre and only minutes away for those golfers who wish to walk play their Golf or Croquet.
We welcome all – members and visitors alike to join with us at the Tairua Golf and Country Club to play your sport and enjoy the fellowship afterwards in our friendly club rooms
