I finally found a true New Zealand Links! Chisholm Park rolls on top of large sand dunes and perches itself on a cliff above St. Kilda Beach just 10 minutes from Dunedin's city center. Holes 9, 10, and 11 afford golfers spectacular views of the coastline and surrounding city.
The proximity to the ocean and stunning views draw close comparison bewteen the 10th at Chisholm Park and Pacific Dune's 4th along the cliff's edge in Bandon, Oregon.
Comparing the level of conditioning would be unfair however, Chisholm boasts only 2 green keepers! The fairways exhibited inconsistent turf conditions but the greens rolled surprisingly well. If you are a fan of the links Chisholm Park is cant miss while traveling in New Zealand.
