If you enjoy playing golf, have go island style!

Rarotonga and Aitutaki both have 9-hole golf courses, both are a little quirky.

The Rarotonga Golf Club in Nikao is near the end of the airport runway and Black Rock, and it is the more sophisticated of the two courses in the Cook Islands. Rarotonga is an attractive golf course with ocean and mountain views.

Playing around the masts and stays of the cable and wireless station contribute to the unique hazards of the course and makes for an enjoyable golf experience. It is a relatively flat course suitable for golfers of all levels.

Open to visitors Monday-Friday from 8.00am-6.30pm. Saturday is member’s day. Bookings are not required but if you have a group give them a call. There are clubs for hire, and the clubhouse offers light refreshments and a bar for after the game. Green Fees $30, club hire $25.

Aitutaki too has a 9-hole golf course not far from the airport, in fact clubs are only for hire at Aitutaki Airport during flight times. There is a local competition on Thursdays and visitors are invited to join, otherwise play at your leisure any day. Your Aitutaki accommodation or the Cook Islands Tourism Information Office in Aitutaki will have more details.
