New Zealand golf courses are one of the best kept secrets. With magnificent scenery and over 400 public and private golf courses to choose from we have selected the best.
The breathtaking scenic panoramas of snow-capped mountains, lakes, forests and seascapes are part of the magic of New Zealand’s golf courses. A range of international links style and rural courses are among our choices for you to enjoy.
Country courses are laid out on rural terrain as varied as nature itself. Sand-based links courses curve around windswept coastal dunes. City courses are sculptured with stately avenues of native and exotic trees. The world-class resort courses provide sweeping cliff top coastal views or million-dollar mountain vistas as the perfect backdrop to emerald green fairways and manicured greens.
Many courses in New Zealand are compulsory spikeless. New Zealand is free of foot and mouth diseases and has strict entry rules. Ensure that your golf shoes and clubs are completely cleaned before you enter New Zealand.

“We thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and we probably couldn’t duplicate the experience. We had a wonderful group of people and enjoyed every minute of our time together. Special thanks to Ray and Di for all the planning on the NZ end, to Chris and Kathy for driving us around to see the magnificent countryside”
Maire Ryan, Canada
“Thank you so much for all your efforts in insuring a wonderful holiday for us. The venues were fabulous, all the arrangements were 'spot on', and the memories lasting.”
Barbara & Steve Morris, Bristol, Virginia, USA
“We have all returned safely to Melbourne from Wellington. The itinerary and all the courses were excellent, especially Kauri Cliffs and Cape Kidnappers. Activities and side tours organized were also excellent, the cruise to the hole in the rock, the fishing trip when we caught 2 trout and had it for the barbecue and those who did Huka Jets really enjoyed the ride. The Tamaki tour was very interesting. It is quite likely we would not have done these tours without your recommendation. We thank you for the good program and would highly recommend you to all our friends.”
Chee Mun Leong, Melbourne, Australia
“Just a note to thank you for the outstanding work and organisation you put into our month long golf tour of both North and South Islands of New Zealand. We were not quite sure how to achieve the right balance between sight-seeing and golf, but the personalised itinerary which you put together for us was perfect. The detailed information pack gave us the security of a guided tour but with the flexibility and freedom to go our own way. We recommend your company to anyone planning a golf trip to New Zealand, and intend to circulate your details around the golf club once we get home. As regards New Zealand, we knew about the wonderful scenery before we left and we were not disappointed but the golf has exceeded all our expectations. We will remember Kauri Cliffs, Cape Kidnappers, Wairakei and Clearwater for a long time and think it is an outstanding golfing destination. Many thanks again.”
Peter and Diane Button, Buckinghamshire, UK
