Rotorua Golf Club
Rotorua Golf Club is a golf club with a difference, you are playing your round on an active geothermal zone. You and your mates will be navigating mud pools and steam vents as you navigate this 18 hole, par 70 course. Rotorua Golf Club has also played host to the New Zealand Speedgolf Open multiple times and depending on the time of year the club may be running regular Speedgolf nights. The club has a fully stocked pro shop to support a travelling golfer including club, trundler and cart hire.
Rotorua is the premier destination in New Zealand for year-round mountain biking. Get your buddies together and head to the Whakarewarewa forest for great riding on over 100km of trails. If you don’t own a bike or aren’t travelling with your trusty stead you can hire one from the hire store located at the main carpark. If your group is only interested in going downhill, a shuttle bus operates on selected days of the week so you race down and compare war stories on the way back up.
After a busy day playing golf, mountain biking or enjoying any of Rotorua’s other great outdoor attractions you’re going to need to unwind and relax. Your muscles will thank you for taking a trip to Polynesian Spa to experience their therapeutic waters. The Polynesian Spa complex is split into different areas in order to accommodate all ages and budgets.
