Mayor Celia Wade-Brown visits first ‘Municipal’ golf course in NZ

The Berhampore ‘municipal’ golf course in Wellington is the focus of a festival to mark 100 years since it was built to cater for the ‘working class’ and provide a healthy sporting activity for people with consumption. To mark the occasion, Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown wore a 1920s golfing outfit and tried her hand at swinging a golf club. Berhampore was the first municipal golf course in the country and is credited with popularising women’s golf in New Zealand.
