Venue Types: Golf Course

In the early 1900’s there were no publicly owned golf courses in New Zealand but in Wellington a local doctor was preparing to stand for election to the City Council and one of the major planks of his campaign was the establishment of a municipal golf course. His preferred site was the gorse and scrub covered hills of the town belt in Berhampore.

That doctor was Robert A Cameron MD, who subsequently was widely acclaimed as the ‘originator’ of New Zealand’s first public golf course.
