Kauri Cliffs Golf Club
Kauri Cliffs features 18 holes of golf designed by David Harman. 15 holes have spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, 6 of which are played alongside cliffs that plunge to the sea. Both the Cavalli Islands and Cape Brett provide additional backdrop.
The course played host to the 2003 ‘Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf’ match between Fred Couples and Michael Campbell, and the PGA Tour’s Kiwi Challenge in 2008. It has received numerous accolades and awards including being ranked among the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World.
The course is attached to The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, a luxury Relais & Chateaux Lodge featuring 22 suites and a two-bedroom Owner’s Cottage. The property has three private beaches with multiple activities available.
Whangaroa Golf Club
Whangaroa Golf Club is on the main road, State Highway 10, Northland, New Zealand, a few kilometres east of Doubtless Bay in the Far North. Whangaroa is an 18-hole course with mown fairways flanked by mature trees. The greens are small but the rating is more than three shots under the par of 70. The club is healthy, with more than 200 members and a strong Junior following.
Whangaroa Golf Club offers exciting golf, an uncrowded course with beautiful Native and Exotic trees and birds. With a friendly local club atmosphere we promise you will enjoy your game.
Waitangi Golf Club
The Waitangi Course not only provides an exciting and ever changing challenge to the golfer but also the most tremendous panorama of sea and island views.
Whether playing or caddying, golfers can enjoy vistas of the Bay of Islands and Russell, river and estuary views over Waitangi and Opua and rolling bush and forest views inland over Mount Bledisloe and Puketona.
These views are complemented by well-groomed greens and fairways surrounded by areas of flowering native trees which provide sanctuary for many varieties of native birds.
The Bay of Islands Golf Club Kerikeri
Located minutes from the bustling town centre of Kerikeri and 5 minutes from Kerikeri airport, The Bay of Islands Golf Club’s meticulously maintained 6,101 metre course is a true championship course.
The signature hole is a short Par 3 with a 60 foot plus drop from tee to green. Bunkers and ponds make this hole particularly challenging.
The greens and fairways are always immaculate and best of all, the quick draining volcanic soil and sub-tropical climate, means it is playable 365 days a year!
The Bay of Islands Golf Club offers exciting golf with tees for players of all abilities set in idyllic surroundings.
