Whether you’re after a casual round of golf or something more serious, Marlborough can tee you up with more golf courses than you can swing a club at. The region has a great range of quality 9- and 18-hole courses, or for something a bit more unique, why not try 13?
Golfing in Marlborough
With some of the sunniest weather in New Zealand, you'll need to cool off. Marlborough offers pool swimming or ocean swimming in the Marlborough Sounds.
Marlborough's great swimming spots

“The thing I love about Marlborough, which you see when you cycle it, is the diversity of the landscape. We’ve got high country like up the Awatere Valley, then the Richmond Range, the Marlborough Sounds and all the rivers. Personally I’m an open country, high country farm sort of person. I love getting up in the hills.”My insider guide to Marlborough
Plunge into the Pelorus River between Havelock and Rai Valley for a taste of pure New Zealand.
The river is crystal clear and blessed with deep pools for swimming, and has the added attraction of being the location of the dwarves-in-barrels scene from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
