Summer means GOLF!! It also means that the sun comes up nice and early, early enough to get 6 quick holes in before work.
Hagley Golf Club is conveniently located right in the heart of the city, so it is easy to get to work in the city, Riccarton or other areas.
You will arrive at work refreshed after a quick 1.5-2km walk in the Park.
Tee off from any one of our starting holes (1,4,7,10,13,16) at 6am and be finished by 7:30, enough time to be at work by 8:30. Check here to see the par and length of the holes at HGC.
Get a few friends together for a catch-up. You don’t even have to keep the score if you don’t want to, although most people like to know who has bragging rights.
If you want to play three sets of six holes in a week, maybe teeing off on the 1st hole on Monday, the 7th on Wednesday and the 13th on Thursday or Friday, you have played a full round of golf when you might otherwise have been sleeping.

Pay before you play
The HGC Shop is not open early in the morning. We suggest you pay your #6B4WORK green fees online before you play, so you won’t need to worry about having the correct change for the Green Fee Honesty Box.
6 holes #6B4WORK, $10
3 x 6 holes #6B4WORK in a week, $25
Select the day you are going to play, then click the Add to Cart button. If there are 4 people going to play at the same time, you can pay at the same time, just change the Units to 4 in the cart screen. Print out your receipt and take it with you. Even though the shop will be closed, the course may be marshalled.
Golf is an honesty sport and we expect people to pay only a very small amount to use our course. We receive no funding or assistance from Christchurch City Council and all money received from Green Fees is used to maintain the course.
If you enjoy playing at HGC, then maybe consider becoming a member. HGC is conveniently located in the heart of the city and has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
There is sufficient twilight to play golf about 15 minutes before sunrise. *Monday Sunrise times courtesy TimeAndDate.com
Hagley Park car parks are available off Riccarton Ave and Armagh Street, but they do not open until 7am. We suggest parking on Harper Ave and walking through the course, or maybe even play holes 4 to 9 which are nearer this entrance.
