Haigh golf course offers 27 fantastic holes of parkland golf.

The 18 hole par-70 Balcarres course, spread over 6000 yards, is challenging enough for the competitive golfer but still provides a fun round for the less experienced. The par-3 Crawford course is ideal if you want to improve your game or fit in a quick 9 holes on a busy schedule.

We are open every day, 7am - dusk.
