Coronet Course

The Coronet Course makes most of the beautifully ice sculptured valleys and dramatically undulating land which allows for what is believed to be the highest golf in the region, if not New Zealand.
Designed by renowned professional and master golfer Sir Bob Charles, and renovated by Greg Turner in October 2010, the championship Coronet course offers a variety of natural hazards and stunning scenery.

The new Coronet course encompases the formerly known, Coronet 9, as well as the much anticipated “new 9” which has recently been completed and will feature in the New Zealand Open for the first time in 2022.

The 4-year, $50 million development has been developed on the 67-hectare former Dalgleish Farm is the brainchild of experienced golf course designers Greg Turner and Scott Macpherson who designed Millbrook’s new Coronet Nine in 2007/8.

The new holes make the most of the beautifully ice sculptured valleys and dramatically undulating land which allows for what is believed to be the highest golf in the region, if not New Zealand.

Former New Zealand Golf professional, Greg Turner said much of the new nine would occupy “perhaps the most spectacular landscape at Millbrook.”

Coronet Course - 1 | Par 4

A drive up the right opens up the green – but if you wan a little more room to the left half od the fairway is the spot. Be up with your approach – anything short will probably come back.

Coronet Course - 2 | Par 3

Beware the tier across the middle of the green. If the pin is on the left, err short. If it’s on the right, there’s a little more room right than first appears.

Coronet Course - 3 | Par 4

This fairway is quite wide past the bunker, but the left half is much better. If you can’t get your second to the green, then a lay-up short of the central bunker might be a good option. How brave are you?

Coronet Course - 4 | Par 4

If you can fly the cross bunker, then the left half of the fairway is position A. If the pin is towards the back, then a little short of the hole might be sensible

Coronet Course - 5 | Par 4

From the right half of the fairway you approach is slightly longer but the running shot is an option. From the left better to fly your ball all the way.

Coronet Course - 6 | Par 5

Which way is the best way? The pin placement on this hole may dictate where you want your second to be. The island fairway is usually best – and a little larger than it appears. But it’s an island….

Coronet Course - 7 | Par 3

Club selection is vital. The rock wall looks daunting but may act as a backstop. Left is to be avoided.

Coronet Course - 8 | Par 4

The pin is the key. Back left or back right and angle is more important than distance from the tee. Unless you think you can drive the green of course…

Coronet Course - 9 | Par 3

It’s very short – so shouldn’t be a problem. But this is no time for the nerves to give way!
