Dunedin golf course looks to impose unpopular ban

Dunedin golf course looks to impose unpopular ban

Chisholm Links has 18 holes of playability, character and challenge -- and it's rated the No.1 golf course in Dunedin.

Until now, even non-golfers have enjoyed access to this stunning Scottish-links style course.

But that may not last for long, because Chisholm is now asking the council to ban non-golfers from the course.

They want to prohibit dog walkers, joggers, and everyone from the whole area and for those from Dunedin's only 'free-run' dog society, it feels like blasphemy.

The space is owned by the council and ratepayers -- except Chisholm lease the land, which means the golf players cover the costs, not the ratepayers.

Story went to investigate the sensitive situation -- and find out why the club has suddenly changed its tune.
