Cape Kidnaper Golf Club
Par 72, 7200 yards – Take a 5500 acre piece of oceanfront property in the lush wine country, with dramatic 400 foot cliffs, and ask the talented Tom Doak to design a “world class course”. Julian Robertson did just that, and the course is ranked #27 in the world by Golf Magazine. The drive from the gate alone takes almost 20 minutes through some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see … it’s like Big Sur on steroids! This is one of those rare courses that the challenge of the holes is outstanding, with 5 sets of tees for all players and only outdistanced by the stunning South Pacific ocean views! Strategically placed along 400 foot cliffs, a shutterbug could spend many rolls of film during just one round of golf! Tough, spectacular and a great accomplishment by Robertson and Doak.

Kinloch Golf Club
A Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, The Kinloch Club was rated No.1 outside North America in 2007 by Travel & Leisure Golf. Built in the beautiful foothills around Taupo, the course is challenging and stunningly beautiful. Classic Nicklaus design, the course has penal bunkers, undulating putting surfaces and some reachable par 5’s and great short par 4’s. Originally designed to be a high end destination private development, the course now admits some visitor golfers from overseas while the economy and second home market overseas experiences decline.
