About Us

The Russley Golf Club is home to one of New Zealand’s premier golf courses. The par 72 championship golf course is set in beautiful parkland, and has recently been transformed by a complete redesign of the back nine by leading architect, Greg Turner.

The club is open to locals and visitors alike, and offers five sets of tees to challenge players of all ages and abilities. It is very conveniently located close to Christchurch Airport.

Expert tuition is available from our dedicated PGA professionals for both beginners and experienced players. Instruction takes place on our first class facilities in specific areas for each part of the game.

The Russley golf complex includes a high quality practice range, putting and chipping greens, women’s and men’s changing rooms, and a well-stocked golf shop. Rental clubs are available. After your game relax at Number 19, our well-appointed café and bar.

Newcomers are always welcome. Our long-term members tell us they have chosen Russley because of the warm, welcoming atmosphere, great conversations and opportunity to meet new people.

Russley continues to host prestigious national events, such as the New Zealand Amateur Championships in 2011 and 2017, and the Legends Pro Am tournaments in 2017 and 2018. The course is listed in the 2019/20 Top 50 New Zealand golf courses by New Zealand Golf Digest.
