New Zealand Best Stay and Play Golf Resorts


   

Best Stay & Play Golf Resorts in New Zealand

New Zealand offers incredible variety, from oceanfront subtropical courses in the north to alpine settings in the south. The golf courses are set against a backdrop of stunning New Zealand nature and awe inspiring scenery.

Not only does New Zealand have a reputation for spectacular vistas, it has also secured a name as a haven for outdoor adventure seekers. For golfers wanting to combine the best of New Zealand's panorama, plenty of excitement and world-class facilities, Cape Kidnappers delivers big-time. 

Although it's a longish drive to the northern tip of the North Island, the scenery alone ensures you are well rewarded, and two of New Zealand's golfing jewels await ... the much heralded Kauri Cliffs and the also stunning Carrington Estate. In addition to its 5-star accommodation and services, the 3,000-acre Carrington Estate includes an impressive winery and a wonderfully scenic and challenging Matt Dye designed championship golf course

We are happy to highlight the very best Stay & Play golf resorts New Zealand has to offer.
