Excellent wine and food, rich culture and spectacular coastal vistas define the Experience Golf Courses in Auckland and Northland.
Auckland, an arrival point for most New Zealand visitors, offers four Experience Golf Courses to complement its two Marquee Courses – Gulf Harbour Country Club and the Titirangi Golf Club. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jn, Gulf Harbour Country Club in North Auckland was the host of the 1998 World Cup of Golf. Located on the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges in West Auckland, Titirangi Golf Club is the only course in New Zealand’s designed by Dr. Alistair MacKenzie.
Four experience courses (Omaha Beach Golf Club, Muriwai Beach Golf Club, Remuera Golf Club and The Grange) are spread across the city and present plenty of opportunities for you to soak in Auckland’s vibrant city life, a stunning harbour, wine and food and surrounding islands.
Situated just north of Auckland is sub-tropical Northland, known for its rich history and love of the water. Kauri Cliffs, this region’s Marquee Course, is ranked #49 in the world by Golf Digest and hosted the PGA TOUR’s Kiwi Challenge in 2008.
Alongside Kauri Cliffs, you will find six Experience Golf Courses (Carrington Club, Kaitaia Golf Club, Bay of Islands Golf Club, Waitangi Golf Club, Waipu Golf Club and Mangawhai Golf Club) offering seaside links to parkland layouts. Along with great golf, take your time exploring the twin coastline, Cape Reinga, Tane Mahuta (a 2000-year-olf Kauri tree) and the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Northland also offers some of the best diving and deep sea fishing in the country.
