    Level 3 - A look back

     

    Jean Bainbridge, pictured, will be 91 in September and was one of the first giving the thumbs up. Jean along with many others could not wait to get back out on the course. Unfortunately she had to play solo. Her best friend, Mary, played behind her. Restrictions are no combining "bubbles" for purposes of golf. Jean walked the 9 holes in less than 1 hour 30 and will be back next week. The course has been fully booked all 3 days this week.


     

    We extend a warm welcome to visitors to our Club and encourage you to visit our 18 hole course to experience our friendly, welcoming atmosphere first-hand. Our team and members go that extra step to provide golf and clubhouse services that make your visit to Levin enjoyable.

     

    Levin Golf Course is located just 10 minutes’ drive from the Levin township, between Lake Horowhenua and Hokio Beach. We are fortunate to enjoy a unique micro-climate in terms of weather patterns where often the weather variables are different from the prevailing conditions in surrounding areas.
