The club welcomes golfers of all ages and abilities. Trentham is only 5 minutes from the city of Upper Hutt.
Trentham is a relatively flat, easy walking par 71 course with tree lined fairways and water hazards, and where nature abounds with Tui, Kereru and other wild life.
In 1969 Major George Bennett, Camp Commandant of Trentham Army Camp asked two of his staff, Gordon Leighton and Jack Crawford to form a golf committee. The land available was swampy in places and overgrown with tussock and bullrushes.  In essence this was the beginning of the Trentham Camp Golf Club. From the swamp and tussock, six greens were carved out. Over the ensuing years sheep were cleared from the course, drains were established and greens and fairways were developed until finally in 1981, the last four holes were completed turning the course into an 18 hole layout.
The course shares space with other community groups including the Trentham Archery Club, Heretaunga Pistol Club, Trentham Rifle Range and the Wellington Model Aeroplane Club. All this just a 30 minute drive from the Wellington CBD.
