Amazing Experiences

“Playing Belmont as a young player in the late 1960s-early 70s set me up for my professional career. The links-type course with bunkering, its slopes and fast, large and undulating greens, meant you had to be more than a proficient player to shoot par.  The westerly winds always made scoring tough. To this day I still rate Belmont in the top 20 courses in the country.”

Craig Owen​

NZ rep to the 1979 and 1980 World Cups, and the best placed Kiwi (fifth) when Belmont hosted the 1978 NZ Open.

“Belmont’s such an interesting course as eight of the 18 greens aren’t visible from the tees and while the greens look innocuous even very good golfers fail to conquer them. Being a sand-based course it’s playable all year round. And Belmont is  part of a group of fantastic links-type courses that form part of a lower North Island coastal swing from New Plymouth down to Paraparaumu.”

Hamish Mackay​


“I still have a special place for Wanganui Golf Club. Belmont gave me a great grounding in the game because most days we were up against a fairly stiff westerly wind. The ability to play in those conditions made playing the great links courses in the UK reasonably plain sailing for me and I believe was the main reason for my successes on that type of course.”

Simon Owen

Pro golfer, finished second to Jack Nicklaus in the 1978 British Open and won the German Open inn 1974.
