Best time of year

All year

Tour the North Island and visit a multitude of stunning golf courses. Begin with Kauri Cliffs in the North – the views are spellbinding. Travel through the central north island and play the deftly designed courses of Wairakei and Kinloch Club. Visit the Hawkes Bay region, a gem of the north island with its world famous wines, mild temperatures and equally enjoyable Cape Kidnappers.


Finish in style in Wellington, the coolest little capital with hundreds of cultural activities to be discovered. It’s also home to the Royal Wellington Golf Club, recently redesigned and rich in history, and Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club, host of 12 New Zealand Opens. If you decide to travel further south, add on the South Island Golf Highlights itinerary. Make sure you are familar with driving in New Zealand before you set out on your scenic golfing adventure.
