Our 12th Hole

“The best natural par 3 in the world”,
Arnold Palmer 1970.

TAIHAPE GOLF CLUB takes great pride in  Arnold Palmer accrediting the club with the best natural par 3 in the world when he visited in 1970.

A bold 133 metre hole from the white tee and a more challenging 155 metres from the blue tee. Our 12th hole transcends the Hautapu river with the tee some15 metres elevation above a green which falls away on 3 of its 4 sides.
