NEW ZEALAND / Golf
Untitled Document

New Zealand is a golfer’s paradise with over 400 public and private golf courses, including many championship and resort courses that are on par with the world’s best. That is the second highest number of courses per capita in the world. Scotland has 543 courses for just over 5 million people. The range of golfing experiences include breath taking scenery, thermal activity, new resort style golf and the challenge of championship courses.

 

Because NZ is a small country with a large number of golf courses, you never have to drive more than 45 minutes to play a round of golf. In most instances travel time would be substantially less than this. Most golf clubs in New Zealand accept casual players for play during the week and at weekends. Usually a booking system is operated by the club which will give you the option of several different times to book during the day.

 

Golf in New Zealand is very affordable. Green fees at public courses start at the unbelievably low cost of NZD10 and you can also tee off at some of New Zealands best courses for under NZD100. The national average for non­affiliated members is NZD24, while for affiliated members it is NZD18. There are also resort courses that cater for the top end of the market. So whatever your budget, NZ has the course to meet your requirements.

Major clubs have trundlers, clubs and carts for hire. Golf courses are typically 5,600­6,600 metres in length with the men’s par at 71 or 72 strokes and women’s at 73 or 74.

Dress standards vary but by and large are quite liberal. Casual clothing is only acceptable on public courses. Smart walk shorts with long socks can be worn on most courses but neat trousers and loose fitting shirts are the norm. Football or tennis shorts, track suits, t­shirts and jeans are generally not permitted. Dress rules vary from club to club. It pays to find out in advance about special requirements both on and off the course.

 

In the following, some of the Championship Courses are listed.

 

In the North, Kauri Cliffs combines one of the toughest tests of golf you will find anywhere, with spectacular views of the Bay of Islands. Only 45 minutes away you can play Waitangi, a short not too demanding challenge, but views you will never forget.

 

Stay in Auckland and you have resort style golf at Formosa and Gulf Harbour, both venues in recent years hosting professional events, or the more traditional New Zealand challenges Titirangi, Remuera and The Grange.

 

The central part of the North Island offers many options. Rotorua is one of the most popular tourist locations with many attractions which include Rotorua Golf Club, better known as Arikikapakapa, which has boiling thermal mud pools on course, so hitting straight is important. Within an hours drive from Rotorua, you can visit Mount Maunganui Golf Club and see surf and white sand running for miles. You can go to Taupo and play the challenging Centennial course at Taupo Golf club, or Wairakei International which is one of our very best. On the East Coast the Hawkes Bay offers very good courses in Napier and Hastings, and a new challenge is now open at Cape Kidnappers which will be a must for every visitor. What makes this area more special is that you can follow a challenging round of golf with a visit to one of the many vineyards in the region.

 

In the lower North Island Paraparaumu Links is a popular golfing experience. The course has been host to 10 New Zealand Open Championships, of which the most recent included Tiger Woods. Rated for many years as one of the top 100 courses in the world by Golf Digest it is definitely worth a visit. Other golfing opportunities include Ngamotu Golf Club in New Plymouth, Belmont in Wanganui and Manawatu Golf Club in Palmerston North ­all three courses have hosted the New Zealand Open.

 

The South Island features golf courses in most towns, but if based in either Christchurch or Queenstown you have a range of options. All clubs look forward to visitors and you will receive a warm welcome at Christchurch and Russley Golf Clubs where many major events have been played. You can try Terrace Downs or the new resort course of Clearwater which is only minutes from the airport.

 

In Queenstown you have spectacular views of the Mountain Range and can play at Queenstown Golf Club, famous for its scenery, or sir Bob Charles’ designed resort Millbrook. Not too far away you can experience Central Otago at Cromwell, Wanaka or Alexandra.

 

Depending on your length of stay and the type of challenge you are looking for, New Zealand has something to offer and you will be left with a desire to return to continue your golfing trek through one of the world’s best golfing destinations.
