Some of Your Golf Courses:

GULF HARBOUR CC - A Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed course just 40 minutes north of Auckland. Excellent drainage makes this a superb all weather course, with magnificent “links looking” coastal holes and views over the sea. Many good holes are featured before the controversial 16th and 17th, with severe right to left slopes. Gulf Harbour is known for having hosted the 1999 World Cup and has plenty of carts.

KAURI CLIFFS GC - Par 72, 7037 yards – Opened in 2000, the course is set on oceanfront cliffs of 4,000 acres of rolling coastal farmland owned by Tiger Funds founder Julian Robertson from the USA. It is a remarkable location overlooking the Cavalli Islands, Takou Bay and the outer reaches of the Bay of Islands. It is surrounded on the landward side by pasture with strands of native trees and drops away steeply to the Pacific Ocean on the coastal side. Kauri Cliffs is already rated one of the very best courses in the world has been rated by Golf Magazine as World #49.

WAIRAKEI GC - Internationally acclaimed Wairakei International GC is a parkland course which should not be missed. Once ranked by Golf Magazine in the world top 100, and it will perhaps again after a recent refurbishment. Situated 9 kms north of Taupo and set in 450 acres of gentle rolling countryside, Wairakei presents magnificent tree lined fairways and large manicured greens. The course is well drained and easily walked. A total of 108 bunkers ensnare the course as do three water hazards, and the comparisons to Gleneagles Kings Course in Scotland are obvious.

CAPE KIDNAPPERS GC - Par 71, 7137 yards – Take a 5000 acre piece of property in the lush wine country, with dramatic cliffs on both sides, and ask talented Tom Doak to design a “world class course”. Julian Robertson did just that, and the new course is already being mentioned as “best newcomer in the southern hemisphere”. The last time we heard that it was at Kauri Cliffs, Robertson’s other 5-star-plus golf destination. The setting is like “Big Sur on steroids” and the course will give you all you want to handle. Don’t expect to go low here, as the wind can play havoc with your scorecard. This is one of those rare courses that
the challenge of the holes is outstanding, and nothing could be better except for the South Pacific views! Exposed along 400 foot cliffs, it’s amazing nobody ever put a golf course here before! Bring your A game to this course. (Five sets of tees: Ladies 5182-5808 yards with slope 136-142 / Gents 6242-7137 yards with slope 137-141)

MILLBROOK GC - Set amidst spectacular alpine amphitheater, the Millbrook GC is fashioned from original terrain with mixture of undulating to rolling fairways, each hole having its own strategic and scenic feature. Stretching to over 7000 yards and
designed by Kiwi legend lefty Bob Charles, Millbrook is an exceptional experience for the serious or social golfer, and features one of the most unique country settings anywhere. A delightful day is always in store here!
