Don’t Forget Your Clubs: The Best Golf Courses in New Zealand

New Zealand isn’t just about adventure sports and spas. If your idea of a great New Zealand holiday isn’t bungee jumping off a tall bridge, white-water rafting down river rapids or being smothered in natural mud body mask treatments, then why not take advantage of discount flights to Auckland and visit some world-class golf courses. Read on for the some of the best golf courses in New Zealand and tips on what to see nearby when you’re not working on your game.

 Cape Kidnappers Golf Course

Considered by most as the best course in NZ, Cape Kidnappers is firmly lodged in Golf Digest’s World Top 50 rankings. With spectacular cliff-top views of the Pacific Ocean from every hole, you get perfect greens and fast and firm fairways. Located in the Hawke’s Bay region in the central North Island, you can experience the art-deco cafe lifestyle of Napier or visit the world-renowned wineries that surround this beautiful region.

 Kauri Cliffs Golf Course

At Kauri Cliffs you don’t just get the chance to play on a spectacular ocean-side golf course, you also get to practice your swing at one of the world’s best practice ranges with great putting and chipping greens. Cleverly laid-out to take look out on to the Pacific, this course will surely test your golfing nerve. Kauri Cliffs is located in the Bay of Islands, at the top of the North Island. If you’re thinking of taking some time away from the golfing, you can always take a fishing tour around the beautiful waters of this stunning location, or take a boat ride through the famous Hole in the Rock and spot some dolphins while on the water.

 Formosa Country Club

The venue for the 1998 NZ Open, Formosa is an international PGA standard golf course. It caters to every playing level, with four tees at every hole: professional, championship, regular and forward. Located in Auckland at Beachlands on the North Shore, Formosa Country Club is a great course to play, especially if you are staying in central Auckland city.

 Millbrook Resort Golf Course

Considered one of the most scenic golf courses in NZ and voted the best golf resort in Australasia, Millbrook offers very smooth greens and pristine fairways for those who stay on the course. To make your game a little more challenging, there are some well-laid sand bunkers and long grass roughs. Set amid 500 acres of grounds, Millbrook sits at the base of The Remarkables and Coronet Peak, not far from the old mining town of Arrowtown.

 Terrace Downs Golf Resort

Set in the Canterbury high country, just a one-hour drive from Christchurch in the South Island, Terrace Downs is a championship 18-hole golf course. Among its finer features, the 72-par course includes four tee options at every hole, 70 bunkers and 11 lakes, all designed to offer a challenging day’s play no matter what your skill level. During your stay, you can visit the wide range of tourist activities available in the area, from hot air ballooning across the Canterbury Plains, to thrill-seeking activities in Hanmer Springs, to whale watching in Akaroa.

 The Kinloch Club

The first Jack Nicklaus course in NZ, Kinloch, is considered to be one of the most demanding courses in the country. It is a relatively new course, opened in 2007 and easily rates in the top golf courses in NZ. Kinloch is located just west of Taupo and is a great destination for golf and other holiday activities.

 Jack’s Point Golf Club

With minimal excavation, Jack’s Point offers natural scenic beauty and challenging fairways set on the edge of stunning Lake Wakatipu to one side and The Remarkables to the other. Jack’s Point is well-situated within a short distance from Queenstown, the adventure capital of the world. No matter what time of year, Queenstown offers excellent tourist activities to keep you occupied while not on the green.

 The Hills Golf Club

Having hosted the NZ Open in 2007, The Hills golf course is another South Island stunner. With championship tees situated over 500 acres you can be sure of a great day’s play at The Hills, no matter what time of year. You not only get hard fairways and smooth greens, perfect for the modern-day golfer, you also get picturesque 360-degree views of snow-covered mountains.
