TESTIMONIALS

"Paraparaumu Beach was easily my best "pure" golfing experience in New Zealand.  Thank you for making it happen" - Ivan Morris, Ireland April 2014

“Thanks for a magnificent day at PBGC last week.  Loved the course, staff were excellent and simply had a memorable day.  Have to say that PBGC is one of my favourite Southern Hemisphere courses" – Neil Martin United Kingdom, August 2012

“I have played in St Andrews most of my life and have been very fortunate to play a few other true links courses in Scotland, but Paraparaumu was a brilliant discovery. To find such a gem hidden on the coast was superb – it was a pleasure to play.” – Alex Roome, Oct 2010

  
“I could never get sick of playing Paraparam’.  Having grown up playing links golf in Scotland & Ireland, this mode of golf gets my wheels spinning.  It feels like getting back to my roots.” - Jamie Patton from Puregolf2010.com, Feb 2010
 
"If Golf was a religion, Paraparaumu Beach would be its Cathedral" - Sev K-H Kiel Feb 2011

“Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club will always remain a special place to me, as that is where my golf career started” -
Steve Williams –  2010
 
“One of the biggest highlights of my career was caddying for Tiger at the 2002 New Zealand Open at PBGC and he too agreed what a great layout and was very impressed with the collection of demanding par 3’s” - Steve Williams – 2010
 
“After more than three decades of caddying I rate Paraparaumu Beach very highly and believe it has one of the best groups of par 3’s on any course I have encountered.  The par 3 2nd, 5th, 14th and 16th will challenge the best players everytime despite not being long holes like many of the modern day par 3’s.” - Steve Williams –  2010
 
“As I embarked on a career as a professional caddy I was very fortunate to caddy on many of the Worlds best courses and I began to realise that my own home club was indeed as good as many of the best around the World” - Steve Williams – 2010
 
“Fans of traditional links courses will simply love Paraparaumu Beach” - Golf Australia Magazine – Dec 2008
 
“For Kiwis stuck at the bottom of the world, the greenfee is worth it just to see the new revetted bunkers" - The Cut Magazine – April 2009
 
“Arguably New Zealand golf’s spiritual home” - The Cut Magazine – April 2009
 
“PB is a great example of how intelligent design on appropriate terrain can remain relevant in spite of technological advances.  With the fescues revived and the ball "alive" when it lands, once again the links shows that the interest and intrigue associated with its counterparts in the British Isles is alive and well on the Kapiti Coast.” - Greg Turner – New Zealand Open Winner 1989,1997
 
"Quite rightly regarded as one of the best links in the southern hemisphere" - Greg Turner – New Zealand Open Winner 1989,1997
 
 "Links golf of quality, variety and intrigue and of true international standard" - Greg Turner – New Zealand Open Winner 1989,1997
 
“It is one of the finest courses I have played in my 30 years as a tour professional and my top tick for New Zealand” - Peter Fowler – 1993 NZ Open Champion and 9 professional career victories.
 
“Paraparaumu Beach – it offers the best final three holes in the country. There are plenty of great holes and it is an unbelievably good course” - Touring professional Richard Lee in response to what his favourite course in NZ was – Cut Magazine August 2009
 
“For many years this compact links course, in a beach suburb just north of Wellington, had the reputation of being the best links course in the southern hemisphere – and deservedly so” - Leading course architect Tom Doak rating Paraparaumu in his top 14 Links courses worldwide - Travel and Leisure Magazine – 2007
 
“This is a great course……a great, great course” - 9 time major champion Gary Player
 
“Paraparaumu will be famed for a century yet” - 5 time British Open winner Peter Thompson
 
Nature obviously had in mind both golfers and galleries when she formed Paraparaumu, and it’s re-birth is so important and refreshing for New Zealand golf.” - Gary Ahern Columnist NZ Golf Monthly Magazine – March 2007
 
“I really, really enjoy the Paraparaumu Golf Course. It’s a links course that’s relatively untouched and totally natural. It was a course I always enjoyed as a kid and still do to this day” - US Open Winner Michael Campbell - Golf Punk Magazine 2009 Responding to the question “what is your favorite golf course in NZ and what makes it so good”
 
“I just think that it’s a fantastic golf course” - Craig Parry 2002 NZ Open Press Conference
 
“Difficult holes are not necessarily good holes ,but the 13th is a perfect example of a great hole” - World Atlas of Golf
 
“Intriguing, alternative strategic decisions, each with its own reward, mark this as one of the finest half dozen holes in Australian or New Zealand golf” - 17th Hole PBGC - World Atlas of Golf
