Steeped in history and surrounded by breathtaking scenery, New Zealand’s 14 world-class Marquee Courses are on every avid golfer’s bucket list.

No country has seen its golf courses improve more over the past 20 years than New Zealand.

Super stars of the New Zealand golfing landscape, Marquee Courses are designed by world-class architects such as Tom Doak, Dr Alister MacKenzie, Robert Trent Jones Jnr and Jack Nicklaus. Strategically located near snow-capped mountains or isolated coastal stretches (and in some cases both) these world-class courses provide a superb natural backdrop for a round of golf.

Marquee golf courses are selected based on their location, scenery, architectural merit and ability to meet the expectations of a travelling golfer. Some courses come complete with five-star accommodation and cuisine and are surrounded by a cluster of Experience Golf Courses that showcase the local culture and country charm of New Zealand.
