About us

Led by local golfing professional Peter Hayes, our mission is to help you get the most from the game we love. Based out of the scenic, family friendly Gleniti Golf Club in Timaru, we’ve got the advice and the gear to help you achieve your goals.

A bit of banter, a stroll around a picturesque rural setting, and a chance at glory if you hit the ball just so – golfing at Gleniti is a fun and social activity for friends and family alike. And with the help of Peter Hayes Golf, you’ll always start off with your best foot forward.

Every golfer started where you are right now, and as with anything, practice makes perfect. With Peter Hayes at the helm, you can rest assured we have the knowledge, gear and facilities to get you practising and improving at your own pace, with no pressure.

Golf professional Peter Hayes
Peter Hayes
Member of the Australian PGA

When was the last time a PGA golfer helped improve your game? With over 20 senior club championship wins and another eight on the Australian Legends tour, there’s no one in South Canterbury better qualified than Peter.

Whether he’s helping you weigh the best line, pick the best club or gauge the best shot, Peter knows how to get the best from people and his knowledge of the Gleniti course helps him identify anything that’s lacking in your game. Especially in a sport that rewards precision as much as anything, with over 40 seasons under his belt there are few who can boast more experience.

Margaret Hayes
Shop/cafe manager

A former representative rugby player and a keen golfer herself, Margaret is responsible for everything outside of coaching. This includes the cooking and catering for all our events.

Having caddied for Peter on tour in the past, Margaret also has a great knowledge of golf herself. Her insight is useful when Peter is coaching or playing because it’s when you’ll likely see her managing the shop. But when she isn’t busy helping or feeding golfers, she enjoys working on new recipes for them to try.

After 30 years of slicing, Peter’s easy to follow instructions have made vast improvements to my game. For a high handicapped golfer, I find his demonstrations easy to follow, and his practice and equipment suggestions are very helpful too. Being drawn to play with the club’s top golfer seemed like a daunting challenge at first. However, Peter’s friendly manner made for a pleasant introduction to a new course.
