As a country New Zealand has made great strides over the last 20+ years to enhance and promote world-class golf architecture. Modern super-luxury courses like Tara Iti and Cape Kidnappers offer simply the best experiences and accommodations available.
However not all travel to New Zealand is centered upon the “top courses”. There also exists an opportunity to explore unique golf and align with broader travel plans.
As a golfer you most likely remember great rounds of golf not only for successful shots and low scores, but for the experience a course itself presents. Golf is how you choose to spend your time and ultimately experience all that New Zealand has to offer.
Play a round of golf at Kauri Cliffs. Kauri Cliffs boasts breathtaking views over the Cavalli Islands and has several challenging fairways and greens on cliff tops that plunge into the Pacific Ocean. The 6,510 metre, par 72 course has won huge accolades from golfing magazines as one of the best new courses in the world.
Play a round of golf at Millbrook Resort, a championship course designed by Sir Bob Charles, in this magnificent setting with stunning views of Coronet Peak and the Remarkables. The 6,420 metre, par 72 course has often been described as one of the finest alpine courses in the world.
Play golf at Cape Kidnappers, which was laid out in 2004 by architect Tom Doak. The long 6,525 metre par 72 course is set high above the coast on broad terraces that slope down to the edge of 130 metre cliffs. Cape Kidnappers plays across the ridge and valley landscape, to and from the cliff edge.
