Wairakei golf course has been skillfully designed to blend with the surrounding native bush. Prolific birdsong, picturesque scenery and a unique pest-proof sanctuary (the first of its kind) has led to Wairakei being recognised as New Zealand’s number one golf course.

The predator free sanctuary offers a safe haven to fallow deer and many birdlife including mixed colour pheasants, guinea fowl, peking ducks and our nation’s icon, the kiwi, which are all free to roam around the course.
