Then drive North to view Matakana Golf – the food and wine bowl for the region. This is where you will find Warkworth Golf Club, and driving East the superb links course Omaha Golf Club. Golfer Pacific recommends that you come and try these diverse and affordable golf courses.


To play Muriwai is to play golf as it was intended. A true links course developed on the nor-west Auckland West Coast sand dunes. Rolling fairways, sound of the breaking surf always to be heard. The club offers a true championship links of 6139 metres, par 72 with the fairways remaining dry during the winter months. The championship links is only 40 minutes from Auckland central with the club providing full facilities including Golf Shop, electric cart, club & trundler hire, 7-day catering & bar service.

The Helensville District Golf Club offers an easy-walking 18 hole championship course. It is situated in a scenic rural atmosphere just 35km north of Auckland on state highway 16. This par 71 course is undulating with water features and many stands of trees. The club house overlooks the course and welcomes all visitors. Please book ahead.
The North Shore Golf Club is located on the upper fringes of the Waitemata Harbour, adjacent to the fast growing Albany area. Features of this picturesque course are 27 tree lined holes that offer players the option of three different 18 hole layouts; Red, Blue and Gold. Each covers undulating terrain and demands good course management from players of all levels. The scenic aspect of the club encompasses rural views poised above the natural backdrop of the Lucas Creek escarpment.


Welcome to Omaha Beach Golf Club. Yes! There is golf at the end of the tunnel and less than an hour from Auckland, this 18 hole all weather golf course is ready for play. Considered by a growing number of serious golfers as a hidden treasure in New Zealand, the 18 hole, par 70 Omaha Beach Golf Club is less than an hour’s drive from central Auckland or an hour and a half from Auckland International Airport, but a world away from the frenetic pace of the city. It’s a links style resort course, crafted by its designers to make the most of its stunning seaside location and the gentle, undulating roll of the rural landscape into which it neatly sits. Bordered by the sea on one side and a natural estuary on the other, it is a course that offers some unique and pleasant surprises as you travel around it; a Totara Grove adjacent to one hole, a stand of Kaihikatea providing shelter to a boardwalk that delivers you to another, and with the estuary itself providing a new landscape, and challenge, as you progress around the course.Significant work has gone into Omaha over the last five years to deliver a near all seasons course that is now gaining growing recognition for its stunning beauty as much as its challenges for all levels of golfer. Which means we can promise at least two things: the warmest of welcomes and a day to remember.


So often golfers say that they have never played at Redwood Park and yet so many players love the course as it provides variety and challenge.
