|The Featherston Golf Club is a small (membership) 18 hole country course on the outskirts of Featherston. Visitors love Featherston's wide fairways, fair hazards and flat territory. Featherston is the first course each year to host its 3 day Open Classic every 2nd, 3rd & 4th January. Just because it is flat, has limited manmade hazards, and offers, in the main wide fairways, does not mean that Featherston is a walkover. Among its significant features are the longest par 3 in the Wairarapa, at 203 metres and four par 5's of more than 400 metres.
