New Zealand

  • Nights 13
  • Days 14
  • Rounds of Golf 7
  • Things To Do 9
  • Season Sept - May

New Zealand has always been a spectacular destination for all things tourism, but in recent
years has become one of the world’s premier golfing holiday hot spots.

While the likes of Cape Kidnappers, Kauri Cliffs and Tara Iti are already some of the world’s
best courses, Paraparaumu, Jacks Point and Kinloch Club follow closely behind.

People intend to come to New Zealand for a once in a lifetime experience and this is
reflected in bespoke tours that we include for golfers. We focus on memorable bucket-list experiences, whether it be a helicopter flight to the Milford Sound, visiting vineyards specializing in Syrah, Fly-fishing in a remote stream or enjoying a traditional Maori Hangi (dinner).

New Zealand has a world-class culinary scene, so our tours do not stop at the 18th hole. Restaurants are handpicked for you to experience New Zealand’s best establishments, ranging from high end restaurants set on Vineyards, to Oysters with a chardonnay on the beach.

So, what are you waiting on…. let’s go!

    • David Harman starts the course with 3 ‘friendly’ golf holes before the real challenge begins. The back nine showcases four inland holes that wind through marsh, forest and farmland before you hit the homeward stretch across the top of the bay and back up to the clubhouse. The 17th, a par-4 dogleg-left, is definitely a feature of New Zealand Golf and the views from the clubhouse maybe some of the best in the world.
