In Auckland, there are two renowned courses, Gulf Harbour & Titirangi, both former hosts of the New Zealand Open Championship.
Gulf Harbour Country Club
The PGA-rated Gulf Harbour Country Club is one of those outstanding courses, which builds the golfing experience gradually across the course of a round. Gulf Harbour offers spectacular finishing holes, ocean views and rolling terrain, all of which combine to make it one of the most exciting golfing experiences in New Zealand. Laid out across the Whangaparaoa Peninsula with panoramic views across the Waitemata Harbour, Gulf Harbour is just 40 minutes outside of Auckland’s thriving central business district.
Titirangi Golf Club
Travelling to the west of Auckland you’ll find Titirangi Golf Club, the only Alister MacKenzie designed course in the country. MacKenzie’s designs are admired for producing holes that offer an ideal balance of risk and reward and after designing Titirangi in 1927, MacKenzie went on to design some of the world’s top courses including Augusta, Cypress Point and Royal Melbourne. Over the last few years, millions of dollars have been invested in an upgrading programme, confirming Titirangi’s reputation as one of the best golf courses in Auckland.
