Overview
More
Hanmer Pitch N Putt opened in 2007 and over the years has matured into a great course with wildlife and natural (albeit seasonal) water hazards. Designed by Rodney Hale to improve the short game, it has now become a popular activity for families as well as golfers. Hanmer Pitch and Putt golf course is an excellent destination for everyone. Golfing beginners can enjoy the relaxed atmosphere while advanced golfers can sharpen their short game. Families can come and enjoy the course with time out in our picnic areas. It is also a great location for corporate events, weddings and parties. A BBQ is available should you wish to have an after match BBQ and we also sell cold refreshments and light snacks for those hot days. We have 18 holes ranging from 27 to 80 metres, which combine to create an experience like no other in Hanmer Springs. Golfer’s need only bring their pitching wedge (or preferred wedge), and putter to enjoy a round at the Pitch and Putt or you can hire clubs and balls.

Thank you for your feedback, yes unfortunately we have had a huge amount of rainfall which doesn't make for easy playing but still a challenge and lots of fun. Hope to see you back next time you are in our wonderful village

Went to pitch and putt.Very small fareways so really can’t pitch at all. too many water hazards so balls frequently lost.Price is also too high for the experience.Minigolf in the village would have been a better option.More

Went to fill in time and come across a great course! My partner plays golf so he was very happy with the course and even though I did struggle with some holes it wasn’t impossible to play. Great service too! We will be back again!

Pitch and putt is a great idea but the course needs too be kept in good conditions. Water hazards are full of algui, you can't see the ball. If you hit the ball from tee and doesn't reach the fairways or the (very tiny) greens,...More
