Bursting with astounding beauty and oozing with great golf and adventure travel possibilities, New Zealand is one of the world’s most exciting golf destinations.
Active volcanoes, spectacular glaciers, rugged mountains, gorgeous beaches, vast plains and lush forest make New Zealand a photogenic paradise.
Highly respected golf architects like Tom Doak, Robert Trent Jones Jr. and Jack Nicklaus have capitalized on New Zealand’s amazing topography by fashioning courses at incredible, awe-inspiring locations. Set near either snow capped mountains or isolated coastal stretches, these courses provide inspirational natural backdrops with breathtaking scenery. Better still, the courses are uncrowded and fun-to-play.
For accommodations, the varied menu encompasses luxury resorts, quaint hotels and friendly B&Bs.
To compliment your golf excursion, New Zealand has tours of its fabulous wineries in 12 wine regions. Many wine critics consider New Zealand’s Sauvignon Blanc among the best in the world.
When the wine glasses and golf clubs have been put away for the day, the seemingly endless list of activities includes helicopter tours of volcanic craters and glaciers, dolphin and whale watching, scenic train trips and boat cruises, diving and surfing and tours of “The Lord of the Rings” film locations.
New Zealanders are some of the nicest people in the world and they do everything possible to make your visit the most memorable and enjoyable you’ve ever experienced.
Located in the South Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is made up of two main islands. The North Island is home to the majority of New Zealand’s four million people. It's known for its tropical beaches, islands, volcanoes and geothermal areas, and for showcasing their Maori heritage. The North Island's major cities, Auckland and Wellington (the Capital), are exciting hubs of culture, cuisine and nightlife.
The South Island is famous for its dramatic landscapes and wildlife. The Southern Alps stretch almost the length of the island, sheltering glaciers and alpine lakes. The incredible ‘sunken mountains’ of Fiordland and the Marlborough Sounds are easily explored by boat, and many of our Premier Golf guests enjoy a visit to The Milford Sound while staying in Queenstown.
A temperate maritime climate with relatively small seasonal variation makes it an ideal year-round holiday destination. The average maximum temperature ranges from 68 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. In the north, it’s sub-tropical, and in the south it is Alpine clean and brisk. Although the summer (November to April) is considered ideal, in actuality, all year long is a great time for golfers to visit New Zealand.
