Golf at Titirangi Golf Club
Recent course updates and the subtle cunning of one of the great masters of golf design - Dr. Alister MacKenzie - provide interest, variety and a true golfer's test at his only New Zealand masterpiece. With its dramatic undulation, deep gullies, trees and especially its bunkering, Titirangi has a similar feel to MacKenzie’s Pasatiempo, even Augusta, with the pine straw beneath the trees, on perhaps a slightly less grand canvas.
Titirangi Golf Club
The fairways are firm, fast and well drained, the subtle pure poa greens are generally large and can be extremely slick.

Golf at The Kinloch Club
Play today on the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course to be built in New Zealand which has been created around the unique natural features of the site rather than transforming the landscape to meet a uniform golf course design. The course fits the landscape with ease, and the backdrop of Lake Taupo provides a magnificent setting.

After golf in the mid afternoon you may choose to trout fish on the pristine waters of beautiful Lake Taupo, or have an exhilarating ride on the Huka Falls Jet
- Day 7
Taupo to Napier - Golf at Wairakei International Golf Course
The course is set out on 156 hectares of former farmland in the middle of the Wairakei Tourist Park boasting lush manicured fairways and greens, mature tree plantings and magnificent vistas. The natural contours, 108 well placed bunkers and three water hazards guard the course from those over-ambitious shots. The large greens provide a false sense of security. The subtle breaks and fast pace demand accurate approach shots.
